Welcome to Elm Class

Year 2/3

Teacher: Miss George

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Rauch

P.E Days: Tuesday and Thursdays  - children will need to come to school dressed in P.E kit. Our P.E. kit consists of a white T-shirt, navy shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms, navy jumper and trainers.

Reading at home: Reading can be a fun and imaginative time for children, which opens doors to all kinds of new worlds for them which is especially important in today’s circumstances. As you are all aware reading daily will greatly benefit your child with reading being seen as the key to learning. We ask that your child spends time reading each night. Reading logs come home daily. You are welcome to record any of your child’s reading in their yellow reading log book. This doesn't have to just be their home reading book but any other reading that they complete at home. It is really nice to be able to celebrate reading at home with your child in school. We will be asking your child to re-read books to help develop fluency in reading.

Homework

Every Friday your child will be provided with homework on Seesaw and will have until Wednesday to complete it. This will involve a maths, spelling and an additional activity linked to English, Science or Topic. I will provide a set of instructions alongside all homework so there is a clear understanding of what is needed to complete it. Homework can be completed in your homework book and uploaded to Seesaw via a photo. Remember there is no expectation to print any sheets. If you are having any issues or need to ask a question about homework, please message or speak to me before Wednesday so that I can help.

Curriculum: Please find an overview of our curriculum here

Regular daily activities:

• Listen to your child read daily

• Practise number facts they should be able to recall these facts instantly, out of sequence.

• Practise weekly spellings.

Seesaw: If you need to send a message to us in class, the easiest way is via Seesaw. We will check Seesaw daily and get back to you as soon as we can. If your message is urgent then please phone the school office to ensure we see this as Seesaw may only be checked in the morning or after school. It is really fantastic to see any other learning and experiences that your child is doing outside of school, so please do share this on Seesaw. It is great to see what they are up to and also share achievements with the class. If you have any questions or queries please either send me a message on seesaw, phone the school, email admin or catch me on the door during collection at the end of day.

Miss George
