Pott Shrigley Class 2 2021 - 2022

Welcome to our new term in Class 2

We are excited to welcome the children back for our autumn term and are looking forward to settling them into our new classroom. 

We begin the term with our ‘No Outsiders’ week.  We will look at the book, It’s a No-Money Day by Kate Milner.  It is a poignant book that explores one family’s plight against poverty in the UK.  We will look at the importance of food banks and how these can help families who are not as fortunate as ourselves. 

We will then move on to our topic, the Victorians.  We will explore what life was like for children in Victorian times and compare it to our lives now.  Alongside this, we will research Queen Victoria and how Britain progressed in this era.  Using the book Street Child by Berlie Doherty to support our learning in Literacy, we shall write our own diaries as a child in Victorian times. 

In maths, we begin the term by focusing on Place Value.  Revisiting this will enable us to consolidate our learning before introducing new information.  The children will have access to lots of practical lessons using resources to support their learning which is vitally important to secure fundamental mathematical concepts. 

Growth Mindset is actively promoted in our class to enable the children to understand that making mistakes is part of the learning process.  That to grow and achieve, we always try our best and improve with each challenge. 

Outdoor learning is important to us here at Pott Shrigley.  The children will participate in PE on Thursday afternoons, Forest School on Friday afternoons and lessons will take place outside regularly. 

As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or concerns. 

Miss Millington & Mrs Turner
