Welcome back Class 2!
Class 2 Team:

Tests will take place every Monday. New lists will be issued every Tuesday. Please ensure Monster Phonic Spelling Books are in school every Monday. .
Please ensure named PE kits are in school during the week. PE lessons take place on a Monday and Tuesday.
Please access through htts://www.emile-education.com/. Individual Login details can be found on the letter that came home, as well as on the back of your child's Spelling Book and inside the front cover of their Reading Record. Assignments will be set every Tuesday for completion by the following Monday. These are set to support class learning and in line with spelling patterns already being learnt.
If you have any technical issues with Emile - please contact the support team through the links on the Class 2 page.
Please continue to read as regularly as possible with your child, they gain so much from it. Remember to spend just as much time talking about texts as you do word reading. There are some PDFs at the bottom of the page to guide you in this. Please also support your child to learn to read and spell the Common Exception Words they may bring home in their book bags.
When a reading book needs changing, please encourage your child to be independent and remind them to hand it into the 'Change Book Tray' in the morning.
Self-isolating and School Closure
In the event that you and/or your child needs to self isolate, if our Class 2 bubble is in isolation, or if we face school closure, please log in to our Class 2 learning platform on eSchools. Your child has their own account. Their individual picture log-in details can be found on the back of their Monster Phonic Spelling Books and inside the front cover of their Read Log Books. It is important to check your eSchools messages regularly for individual notifications
Phonics and Early Reading
I will not be sending home reading books. Please access FREE ebooks via these links:
Remember - reading is not just about your child's ability to blend and segment words...ask the questions to too. Use the question guides in your child's yellow homework pack as a guide.
Maths and Science
Remember - maths is ALL around us. Teaching your children to tell the time is essential this year. Year 1s need to know o'clock and half past as a minimum. Recognising money is equally as important. Encourage them to count, add and subtract in 2s, 5s and 10s. Or explore different ways to make 20p, 50p, £1. Teach them the difference between pounds and pence. When you're cooking dinner - measure out how much you're using and involve your children with it.
Mindfulness and Keeping Active
This is really important. Lots of the class were asking if PE counts. The more our movements are restricted, the more important it is to keep healthy and active.
