Pott Shrigley Class 2 2020 - 2021

Mrs Blackwell

Class 2 - September 2020

It is wonderful to welcome both familiar faces and brand new faces to Class 2 and our Pott Shrigley family.  In the first few weeks our main priority is to ensure the children are feeling safe and happy in school so they can face the challenges of the new term ahead.

This term we will be learning about the ancient civilisation of the Greeks. We will be exploring the myths and meeting the different Gods, Goddesses, heroes and monsters. We will discover why the Greeks are still relevant today and how they introduced politics, justice, mathematics, science and much more to our modern world. 

In maths we will starting with Number and Place Value which is fundamental to all aspects of our mathematical understanding. Once the children have  secured this concept at their level they can apply learning to problem solving and reasoning. Timetables are also a weekly focus in which we encourage the children to have quick recall and use as part of their maths tool kit. 

Children will be given weekly homework. We will be using the CGP activity books and the Spelling Shed scheme all of which underpin learning in class. We will send out a Homework sheet later to explain what the children are expected to do at home. Reading is essential to the chldren's progress- all children will read in class but it is also important they read at home. We know not every child finds this easy but it is important to find different approaches and we are happy to discuss possible strategies with parents later in the term.

Children will go swimming on Tuesday afternoons (one the poll re-opens for school swimming), sports with Kickstart on Thursday afternoon and Forest School on Friday afternoon. 

If parents have any queries or are worried about anything in particular about their child please do not hesitate to contact myself or Ms Bromley. 

Warmest wishes 

Mrs Blackwell
