Welcome to our class page!
This year we have a class of 16 pupils from Year 2 who are taught by Mrs Barnes on Monday and Ms Macdonald on Tuesday to Friday. In our class, we are supported by Mrs Robinson, Mrs Hickford and Mrs Elsweiler throughout the week.
Our weekly timetable:
Monday - Mrs Barnes. Music & computing
Tuesday - Ms Macdonald
Wednesday - Ms Macdonald. Mrs Guilfoyle & Mrs Clark, our school sports coaches from Sportastic. Homework to be returned to school.
Thursday - Ms Macdonald
Friday - Ms Macdonald in the morning. Homework given out. Mrs Hickford teaches us RE in the afternoon.
We aim to hear the children read at least twice a week in class. We also encourage the children to read daily at home and this forms part of our homework. We want to encourage a love of reading for enjoyment so sharing books at home will help us to achieve this. We also use Bug Club once a week to help us develop our reading comprehension skills.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday which will include Maths or English tasks, spellings to learn and times tables to practice. It should then be handed in on a Wednesday.
