Welcome to Damson's class page!

Mrs.Edwards would like to welcome all year two Damson Class. We are certain we will have lots of fun during our topic of 'Winsford and Beyond.
 

At the moment we are looking at a text called 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson.

 

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

 

Science

This half term we will be looking at Animals including Humans. We will be doing some investigations into keeping fit and healthy. We are also going to be researching animals' habitats and how they adapt.

Water Bottles:

Please can you make sure that your child has a named water bottle in school with them everyday. As we are a healthy school we ask that it is water and not juice that your children bring in their water bottles.

Class days

P.E.

During P.E this term we will be practising athletics and gymnastics. P.E Kits should include a white t- shirt, shorts and pumps. You may chose to include a P.E jumper, some jogging bottoms and trainers as the weather gets colder. Damson class have P.E on Tuesday. 


Homework:
Handed out on Monday
Handed back in Friday

Homework is not compulsary but is a times table sheet to help your child learn their tables as well as their weekly spellings. These can be completed and practised however you wish. You may request extra work from your child's class teacher if you feel your child would benefit from more support at home.

Reading:

Sharing books with your child and listening to them read regularly at home is essential to the development of their reading skills. Ideally, the children should read for 10 minutes at home every day. We will continue to listen to the children as much as possible in class; all children participate in whole class shared reading sessions.  

As you are all aware, we have started using the Read,Write,Inc programme to teach phnics and reading at Darnhall. Your child will be grouped according to baseline assessments and will be taught a 45minute session per day. Your child will bring home a levelled text that they have been reading in school for you to enjoy at home. Please celebrate all their reading achievements at home.

Please remember your child will need to bring in their reading book and Reading Record to school each day.
