Welcome to Atlas Class with Year 2 and Year 3. Our teacher is Miss Pearson and Miss Boulton is our fabulous teaching assistant.
This half term our topic is 'Our European Neighbours'. Throughout this topic we will be learning about different European countries and their capital cities, different European artists (such as Leonardo Da Vinci) and we will be learning about historic events that have occured in Europe!
So far in our English work we have been looking at writing recounts. We are currently writing our own diary entries written by a survivor of Pompeii. In our maths, we have been looking at place value and ordering and comparing different two and three digit numbers.
This year we have our PE lessons on Tuesday afternoons with coach Dan, in which we are learning how to play football. We are also very fortunate this year to have Mrs Jones come in on Wednesdays to teach us how to play the ukulele!
A piece of either Maths or English homework goes out once a week on a Wednesday and is due in the following Wednesday. Likewise, new spellings for the week are handed out on Wednesday to take home and learn before their spelling test the following Wednesday.
In Atlas class, we value reading. We encourage the children to take their school reading books home and to read to an adult each night. This reading practice must be recorded in their reading records.
This half term, Year 2 pupils will be going out to Forest School every Thursday afternoon. Please ensure they have an appropriate change of clothing and footwear.
