Our class teacher is Miss Hodgson and she is available to talk to you every morning and afternoon on the KS1 yard if you have any questions or queries.
In 2H we strive to have a ‘Growth Mindset’, we understand that it is okay to make mistakes as they help us learn. In our class we are all strong mice who love the challenge.
To find out what we are learning about this half term, our Curriculum plans can be found here. Each half term we have learning reflections to celebrate the work we have been doing. Our parents/ carers can come into school and we show them what we have been learning.
Parents in 2H are also connected to Seesaw. This is new for 2016/17 in key stage one and the parents are enjoying watching their child progress, on a daily basis.
During the Spring term we were lucky to have a number of visitors come and join us. When we were learning about famous North East Inventors, we were joined by Technology Tom, who told us all about the Famous Five. We even made land yachts.
During our next Enquiry question “Who lives in a house like this?”, we were joined by the RNLI lifeguards who talked about keeping safe at the beach and we learnt all about the importance of the different colour flags.
We also really enjoyed learning about Africa and learning about other’s cultures.
After Easter, we explored the history of Newcastle and the surrounding landscape. This included a fantastic trip to the Quayside, where we learnt all about the ‘Great Fire of Newcastle and Gateshead’.
Important things to bring to school:
Water Bottles – children can bring their own water bottle into school and leave it by the sink in the classroom. Please make sure that water bottles only have water inside.
Reading Folders – Your child needs their reading folder in school every day. As well as a reading book, there is also the opportunity to take library books home each week.
PE – In 2H our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on these days. PE kit consists of a white t- shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/sand shoes.
Homework – Homework will be sent home every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday morning. Spelling test is also on a Wednesday.
