Current Foxes, check out the Squirrel class page for your transition work. Mr Martin will also post it on the stream in our Google Classroom for Monday.
It's the final week! Hello Robins! We are looking forward to welcoming you to Fox class! We have lots of activities planned for you to do in your final week of Year 1 and also for the summer holidays. Attached here are some documents to show you what Fox Class is like, a welcome from the staff in Year 2 and some activities you can do over the next few weeks. We would love to see your work when you come back in September, especially your One Page Profile. Have a look at the ones we have completed to tell you a bit more about ourselves. We're really looking forward to finding out more about you. We'll also pop some optional activities here if you really want some more to do! Have a great final week of 'school' and a fantastic summer, see you soon!
Mrs Deeks and Mrs Mizen
Welcome to the Fox Class page!
Fox Class is the name of our Year 2 class. Mrs Deeks and Mrs Mizen are the teachers and Miss Rutterford is our teaching assistant.
So far this year we have enjoyed our Time Travellers topic learning about famous people and events in history. We enjoyed the topic on Toys where we compared toys from the past to present day and we had a great time learning about where we live and looking at what Great Barton was like in the past. Some children did some fantastic extra research at home, well done! We then had a new topic called 'Making a Difference' where we learnt about significant people in the past who made a difference. We learnt about the work of Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Rosa Parks. Purple Mash always has '2Dos' relating to what we are learning in class.
Year 2 children are required to take the National Year 2 tests in May (see information leaflet below).
At the end of the year, we will inform you about your child's performance in the tests and report an overall teacher assessment grade.
Everyone should now have a red spelling book in their book bag where spellings are added weekly by your child. Spare spelling strips are in the going home box if your child forgets to stick theirs in! We have our spelling test every Monday. Please practice as often as you can. There are a lot of spelling rules we have to learn in Year 2! Each week they will be displayed outside the classroom door, feel free to take a photo of them to help you remember.
By the end of Year 2 we aim to know our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Feel free to print off these games to play to help practise!
Now your child is in year 2 we are trying to encourage more independence. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday they are reminded to change their reading book as soon as they come in. Please let us know via the reading log if your child is finding the level too easy or too hard and we will move them accordingly.
