Welcome to Loganberry Class!
Hi, I am your class teacher in Loganberry Class. My name is Miss Jansen and my teaching assistant is Mrs Golding.
What are we learning?
In Literacy, we follow a text- led curriculum and will be looking at the texts ‘Mr Wolf’s pancakes and ‘Growing Frogs’ as well as various other fairy tales and some poetry. We will continue to be learning lots of reading and writing skills including Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
In Maths, we will be using our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills to answer arithmetic and word problems . We will also be developing our understanding of time, shape and fractions.
Our IPC topic this half term is ‘We are what we eat’. We will be learning about healthy foods and the importance of a healthy diet as well as finding out about foods from around the world.
Every child has the opportunity to read in school and should now have an accelerated book which they can change once they have completed a quiz in school. Whilst fluency remains important there is a greater focus towards comprehending the texts in Year 2 therefore this may impact the stage they are reading. We do expect children to read at home and continue to earn their REDTED prizes. Please try and listen to your child regularly and don’t forget to record it in their diaries so they can get their prizes.
We have P.E. on a Tuesday and Friday so please remember your P.E. kits! This term the children will be taught hockey and games. These lessons are mostly taught outside to do so joggers, a fleece and trainers would be beneficial.
As the weather is getting colder please make sure your child has a named coat and jumper with them every day.
Please ensure your child has a named water bottle. Learning is thirsty work!
Homework is sent out on Friday afternoons and needs to be back in by Thursday of the following week. I run a homework session at lunchtime on a Friday if your child needs support. Just let me know.
Please put your child’s name on all of their belongings so that they can be reunited with them more easily.
