Welcome to Class 2 with Mrs Brana,
Miss Joseph and Mrs Johnson
Our value this half term is ‘Thankfulness’.
1 Chronicles 29:13Our God, we thank You and praise your glorious name
Our topic this half term is Diversity. We will be learning about how change can be good, such as our new school. Our new school is near a river. What is it called? Why are rivers important? Cardiff has three rivers - can you name them? What plants and animals live there? Where do they live? (animal habitats)What are our homes like? What are homes like around the world? We will be celebrating harvest festival and Divali, making clay lamps and creating a Ludi dance with sticks, as well as weaving with natural materials. What a busy term! Make sure to check out our Google Classroom page to find out more.
P.E. is on Mondays and you can wear your kit to school.
Spelling tests are on Fridays for year two pupils, all of our spelling lists are on our Google Classroom page: Class 2 2023-2024. Click HERE for our Google Classroom page. Pupils can practise spelling each list of words on Spell Shed via Ed Shed. Every year 2 pupil will have their log-in details for Spell Shed as a QR code and it is in their reading record book.
Reading takes place every day with group reading sessions at the start of the day and children read as individuals to an adult. Your child's progress in reading should continue to be developed at home though shared reading experiences with their book in their book bag and also online with BUG CLUB. Please can parents/ grandparents/ even older siblings write in the reading record books when they have listened to their child read.
