Welcome to JC2
We are a class of 29 Y1 and Y2 children taught by Mrs Loram. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Handy and Mrs Nixon. We are all looking forward to an exciting year! Our first topic is 'Amazing Animals And Us', have a look at our overview to see what we will be learning about.
In JC2 we like to make birthday cards at the start of the year for everyone in our class. On the day of our birthday, we choose a card from the birthday basket and take it home. Here we are after designing and finishing our cards.
Oh my goodness! We have had some snow!!
Look who came to visit us at our Christmas party!
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and that the children are all rested for an exciting spring term. Our topic is Sunshine and Snowflakes. Have a look at what we will be studying this term below.
We have been learning about the compass points north, south, east and west by programming our Beebots to follow these directions around mats.
We have been making colour wheels using hot and cold colours. We started with blue or red paint and then we kept mixing in white paint in order to lighten the colour each time. Take a look.
Just a quick reminder about the homework system in JC2 this year. Homework is issued on Thursday and returned on the following Wednesday. However, if you wish to return it before Wednesday then that is absolutely fine. The Y2 children will receive Maths and English homework every week and the Y1 children will receive either Maths or English on alternate weeks. All children are expected to read every night and learn spellings, issued on Monday for a test on Friday. Happy homeworking!!
Show and Tell will be every Friday afternoon and each group will take it in turns. Your child will be able to tell you when it is their turn for a certain week. Show and Tell is designed for the children to practise their speaking and listening skills, whilst at the same time boosting their confidence to be able to talk in front of a group of familiar faces. The children do not have to show something every time, it may just be that they have something exciting or interesting that they want to share with the class.
