Welcome to Base 11!
We are a Year 2 class of children.
Our teachers are Mrs Ball and Miss Taylor.
Our teaching assistant is Miss Allbutt.
In this class we always try our best and are kind to each other.
This term our topic is…
As part of this topic we will be finding out lots of fascinating facts about space travel and the moon. We will find out about the history of space travel and why Neil Armstrong is famous.
Through our English work, we will be enjoying lots of Space Adventure stories, designing rockets and using these to inspire our own stories.
We are also going to have lots of fun exploring wheeled vehicles and designing and making our very own moon buggies. How exciting!
Our focus in Science this term is materials. We will be particularly focusing on how the properties of materials make then suitable for a particular purpose as well as how we can be innovative and reuse materials for a new purpose to support sustainability.
Our current class text is Space Race by Malorie Blackman.
We are also going to be diving into other books as a focus on this author.
Reading for Pleasure - We would encourage everyone to share books and read for pleasure at home as much as possible, revisiting favourite stories often. Every Monday you can choose a class library book to take home to share and enjoy. Please return this book the following Monday, ready to select a new library book.
Reading of your individual reading book should be completed at least four times per week and recorded with a comment in the reading diary. Remember you will be entered into the reading raffle if this has been completed and all of your reading will help us in the weekly reading challenge to be the class to complete the most reads in school.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Friday please. This will consist of the weekly spelling focus, practising times tables and learning our KIRF (Key Instant Recall Facts) focus.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday and are delivered by our fabulous Crossbar Coaches. Please make sure that you come to school in your PE kit on these days. The school uniform for P.E. is a white t-shirt or purple Randlay top, black shorts or trousers, and black pumps or trainers.
