Spring Term 2023
Welcome back, we hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break, we look forward to hearing all about your adventures. We are excited for the term ahead with a packed curriculum, kicking off with a mini topic on Beatrix Potter before our main topic of Africa.
Our class page on the website will keep you up to date with information, what’s happening
in Class 2 and give you a feel for our fabulous children and class.
This year we have Ms Turner, Mrs Creswell and Miss Fawcett as our wonderful teaching assistants.
Spellings – Children will be taught their new spellings for the week every Thursday morning and spelling checks Friday mornings. Children have logins to Spelling Shed where they can practice their spellings both at school and home.
Reading – Children are responsible for changing their book once completed. In class we independently read every morning before lessons start and we expect the children to read at home, a mixture of shared and independent is great. To monitor reading at this age, it is vital that they/you fill in their reading diaries – this helps us keep a close track on progress. Please help with this at home, thank you.
Homework – Guided reading will take place with Mrs Parkin on a Monday. Homework for Class 2 (Maths and guided reading/reading comprehension) continue to be set on a Monday and collected the following Monday. Homework is now completed on Showbie, children have logins for this app and use at school.
Monday + Tuesday – Mrs Parkin

Residential at Hawse End
We had a fantastic three day residential at Hawse End, jam packed with activities including orienteering, canoeing, lake walks, rock climbing, fire pit chats, and ghyll scrambling. The children were marvellous developing life skills staying away from home and making memories. We look forward to Patterdale Hall this year.
