Mrs Lindblad's Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs Lindblad

Year 2/3

Welcome to our Class Page

 

 

Hello and welcome back to school following the half term break. I hope that both you and your child have had a good week and are raring to go as the second half of the Autumn Term begins. This is always a very busy half term and we have lots of exciting things planned. We will begin the term with a design and technology project called 'The Great Highfields Bread BakeOff' which I'm sure that the children are going to love as we taste, evaluate, design and make bread.

As always, if you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to contact me by email mrslindblad@alsagerhighfields.cheshire.sch.uk or see me at the end of the school day.

 

Please see the Autumn Curriculum Overview for Parents file in the 'Files to download' section for details on what we will be learning about this term.

We are still reading 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' and the children are always pleased when it is time to read our class book together. Many of the children now have their own copy of the book and they are really enjoying reading along with me.

We have painted and drawn some fantastic pomemgranate pictures in art that were inspired by the book. I will taken some photos of the class display and add them to this page this week.

 

 

We will continue learning about the UK in geography,  creating models of the UK and collages of London in Art. In science our Autumn topic is 'Animals including Humans' and our topic in history is railways.

P.E.

P.E. will usually take place on a Friday afternoon this half term but it is subject to change so please make sure that your child leaves their kit in school all week.

Kit: Pumps or Trainers, black track suit bottoms or shorts (weather dependent), yellow school t-shirt and black jumper.

 

Snacks:

If your child would like toast from the kitchen please send them with 20p as they are now able to go and buy it themselves. There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack and all year 2 children are provided with a piece of fruit every afternoon.

 

Water Bottles:

As we start the new academic year,  please make sure that your child comes to school with a named water bottle. We encourage children to drink water regularly and would appreciate your support with this.

 

Homework:

Children will be given homework each week. This will consist of a daily reading, a piece of grammar, spellings, times tables and My Maths. Please see the homework letter in 'Files to download' for more details. Children who are unable to complete homework at home will be encouraged to join the homework club.

 

Reading:

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  They have a planner that you can date and record their reading in.  You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to.

 

Spellings:

We will be sending 10 spellings a week home for the children to learn.  They will be tested on a Friday with a new set of spellings being sent home on a Friday afternoon.

 

SATs

Year 2 SATs in reading, writing and maths take place in May. Since the children are only 6 and 7 years old we do our very best not to make a big deal out of the tests. We try to make them fun where possible and make sure that they have been exposed to similar tests a few times before hand. The children will take the tests in small groups and will sit with a familar adult (Myself, Miss Keatman  or Mrs Riley). We will give out information about the tests at our meeting on 18th September and it will also be available in the 'files to download' section after that time. The framework that we use for assessing reading, writing, maths and science can also be found in the same place. If you have any concerns about SATs then please come and have a chat.
