Welcome to Class 2 with Mrs Brana
Our topic this half term is Now and Then and also, Castles, Knights and Dragons.
This term our Creative Habit of Mind character is Disciplined Dan
Our value this half term is ‘Justice’.
Jesus said 'And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly.' Luke 18:7-8
P.E. is on Mondays and you can wear your kit to school.
Spelling tests are on Fridays, all of our spelling lists are on our Google Classroom page: Class 2 2022-2023. Pupils can practise spelling each list of words on Spell Shed via Ed Shed. Every year 2 pupil has 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.
