Welcome back, I hope you all had a good half term break!


In Dosbarth 2, I teach the class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Hodges on a Thursday and Friday. Our Learning Support Assistants (LSA's) are Mrs Davies and Mrs Draper.


Our new topic this half term is 'Fire, Fire!' We have begun our topic, naturally, with a focus on fireworks and Bonfire Night. We have been thinking this week about words that describe fireworks using all our senses. We will be using this to write sensory poems about Bonfire Night. We will be learning all about The Gunpowder Plot, Guy Fawkes and the Houses of Parliament through this topic.


We will also be busy this half term preparing for our Christmas this space! 



Don't forget you can keep up to date with what we get up to by using our class Seesaw page. It is lovely to see lots of your comments on your children's posts, especially now they are begining to learn to create their own posts independently. We often have Seesaw on the big screen and we share your comments with the children as they come through so please keep them coming - it's great to have parents involved with reviewing and reflecting on their work!


We have had a big increase in homework returns this year - thank you for supporting your child, it makes a big difference!



Just a reminder...

  • All children need PE kit (shorts and t'shirt) and wellies in school
  • Fruit - £1 every Monday
  • Homework and reading books will be sent home every Thursday, to be returned every Monday. It is vital that ALL CHILDREN complete their homework every week as it will be related to our class work.
  • Children will bring  either weekly letters and sounds to learn or spellings to practice, depending on which Letters & Sounds group they are in. These will be tested every Monday. (This will start in a few weeks time.)


Many thanks
