Welcome toThrybergh Fullerton C of E Primary Academy

Class 2

Welcome to Class 2 with
Mrs Whitehead-Price and
Mrs Tordoff
 

Welcome back to school after the holiday. It has been a pleasure to hear all about the exciting things you have been up to during the break.

 

We look forward this year to be working with a new teacher, Mrs Tordoff, who will be working on Monday in Class 2. Mrs Whitehead-Price will teach the rest of the week.

This term we will be working on our new topic; Enchanted Woodland. We will be learning all about woodland animals, trees and even about some of the more magical creatures you may find in a woodland! As part of our topic we will be visiting Doncaster Forest School at High Melton to work in their Woodland Learning Zone.  We are looking forward to inspiring the children with lots of interactive and fun activities.

Group 2's P.E sessions this half term will take place on a Monday and Thursday . Please can you make sure that your child has suitable P.E kit in school for these days and ensure that ALL clothes are fully labelled with your child’s name. Some of these lessons may take place outside so please ensure your child is provided with suitable kit for indoor and outdoor PE. On Mondays our PE lessons will be lead by Active Fusion coaches and on Thursdays Miss Davidson will be teaching Dance/Gymnastics.

 

To keep our school environment clean could children please have a change of indoor shoes or slippers. There is a space in the classroom for children to keep their shoes, we really would like to keep our new carpet area clean.
 
Spelling tests will take place every Monday, with new spellings to be given out to be practised at home for the following week. We thank you for your help in supporting your child with this.

Reading diaries can be brought to school at your convenience to be checked. Please hand them to the adult in class so they can be marked. The children receive a special award in assembly for every 50 reads so please continue to fill in the reading diaries. Bug Club reading also counts towards their 50 reads too, so make a note of it.

 

Please could you bring your school reading book into school to be changed in the new library area. Children will receive a sticker on the reading chart each time they change their book. This can be done as and when you feel it is appropriate to change it. Listening to your child read for just ten minutes each day can have a significant impact on their learning.


If you have any queries about anything please don’t hesitate to ask. We are always happy to help. 
 
Thank you
 
Mrs Whitehead-Price and Mrs Tordoff.

HOMEWORK

Here are some ideas of activities you could do at home to support your child in their topic learning this term. I would be really pleased to see any completed work.

Homework Ideas:

Take a woodland walk with the family. Take some photographs of interesting trees, plants or wildlife. Can you identify them?

Use the internet to find out amazing facts about woodlands or forests and make a fact sheet.

Go on a tree hunt to find coniferous and deciduous trees. What are the differences?

Make patterns, pictures or sculptures using natural materials. Take a photograph of your masterpiece.

Have fun building a den. Draw a picture or take a photograph of it. Write about how you made it.

Make a miniature home for a fairy/pixie/elf using natural materials such as bark, pebbles, twigs, leaves and pine cones.

Measure the height/length of small trees, bushes, sticks, twigs and leaves.

Write a ‘Who am I?’ riddle. Write clues about a woodland animal, plant or tree.

 

Have fun and keep an eye out for those woodland fairies!
