Welcome to 2M and 2CM.
Our teachers are Mrs Marsden and Miss Martin. Our teaching assistants are Mrs McKeown and Mrs Poles. Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school every day. This should include warm clothes and suitable outdoor footwear. All items should be labelled.
This term our topic still has a science focus. We will be learning about different habitats and the animals that live there. We will be discussing why certain animals are suited to a particular habitat. We will construct classification keys to help identify animals in their habitats. We will also be learning about the structure of food chains and making our own. We will be making digital art of different habitats and looking at the work of David Hockney.
Our current Power of Reading book is 'The Owl Who is Afraid of the dark' by Jill Tomlinson.

How you can help at home
Please try to read with your child a 5 times a week and record each read in their log book. Children will bring home 1 school reading book and 1 library book each week. Remember you can also read their own books and/or books from the library.
Practise maths facts on your child's current maths planet's level e.g
14 + ___ = 20
Please look on the maths section of the school website to find samples of your child's current maths planet level.
Also use these facts in problem solving activities
e.g. Jane had 20 cakes. Her family ate 6. How many cakes did she have left?
Each week your child will bring home 8 spellings to learn. These will be checked every Friday. Please find the current spellings below
