Welcome to Class 8

Hello and welcome to Class 8,


Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful Spring break.  We are looking forward to an exciting Summer Term in Year 2.


This term in maths we will be focusing on fractions, time, statistics and position. We will be continuing White Rose Maths to consolidate these areas.


In English, we will be continuing to follow the Read Write Inc Scheme or the Vipers scheme once Read Write Inc has been completed. The children will have the opportunity to develop and embed their phonic skills. During their Read Write Inc lessons the children will have opportunities to read stories, poems and non-fiction texts and carry out different genres of writing.


Your child will have weekly spellings. We ask that you practise them with the children and read with them at home. It is important to read as much as possible and we ask that parents listen to their children read and help develop a love of books. When you listen to your children read, this should be recorded in their Home School Diary and each read will count towards a reading prize! 


During the afternoons, our topic for the first half of the Summer Term will be ‘Amazing Animals’ and ‘Oh we do love to be beside the seaside’.


Class 8 will have PE Tuesday afternoon and Friday afternoon. It is important that the children have their Ghyllgrove PE kits at school so that they can join in with the sessions.  Our PE kit is a white t-shirt with red shorts and trainers. Children with long hair must have their hair tied back and no jewellery can be worn during P.E. Please ensure the children have their winter PE kits in school during this term. 


Look out for more information on the curriculum that we will be studying over the course of the term in order to support your child as much as possible. Also, look out for any letters sent home and emails regarding events in school.


Finally, we would like to remind all families to label your child’s clothing and equipment.  This includes PE Kit, School Uniform, Coats and lunch boxes.  All items must have your child’s name and class number.  Lastly, may we remind you that we are a healthy school, we do ask the children have only water in the classrooms.


Thank you for your continued support.


Miss Porter
