Pott Shrigley Class 2 2018 - 2019

Mr Parkinson

Class 2 Teacher

Class 2

This half term is a very busy one. We are going to be studying our local area this half term with a particular focus on changes within living memory and the human impact on our surroundings. 

We are going to visit Shrigley Hall and meet people who have lived in the area earlier in their lives. This will give the children a chance to find out how the Pott Shrigley area has changed over previous decades. 

We will learn how to use some key geographical language. Please feel free to drop these words into conversation at home: residential; recreational; commencial; industrial; land use; green belt; site; natural; man-made.

We will use ordinance survey maps to plan a route through our local area and learn how to describe directions using the points on a compass. 

We will record information in the field and hopefully interview people met through our fieldwork.

On top of all that, we will carry on using Wonder to stimulate some brilliant writing, starting with formal letters to and from Mr Tushman. And of course our end of year production, sports day and class 2's residential. 

Phew!

Don't forget - 

  • Reading should be encouraged at home daily. Children should be taking their reading records home daily and using them to record all reading that they do. This can include non-fiction and can include books from home. 
  • Spelling shed is a great resource for the weekly spelling lists (given out and tested on a Thursday). The site is here: play.spellingshed.com/
  • A times table Scratch game is here times table game. This generates all the times tables that the children will need to recall in Key Stage 2 (and beyond).
  • PE kits should be left in school for the half term.
  • Swimming kit is needed for a Tuesday.

All the best,

Mr Parkinson and Ms Bromley
