Welcome to JC2
We are a class of 21 Y2 children taught by Mrs Loram and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hayden, who is 1:1. We are all looking forward to an exciting year! Our first topic is 'Water' and we have already started to learn about the oceans of the world and the seas surrounding the UK. Which is the warmest? Which is the biggest? Do you know the answer?
Our next key text we will be looking at is 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch'. We will be learning about prediction, sequencing and understanding texts among other things.
Today was Health and Wellbeing Day at school and we looked at the importance of sleep. We watched Rod, who had not had much sleep because he was playing video games until after midnight! He discovered that this was affecting his memory and he was feeling 'out of sorts'. He couldn't remember what was on our memory tray! We learnt that when we sleep our brains sort through everything we have seen, heard and thought about during the day,it is tidying. A little bit like when we tidy our bedrooms! We also learnt about the good and bad things we can do before we go to bed to help us have a good nights sleep
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 children will receive Maths and English homework every week. 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, however I have sent home a timetable just in case they forget! 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.
