Welcome to Rowan Class - Year 2 & 3
A big hello from Mrs Staff and welcome to back to the Spring Term!
Welcome back to the Spring term! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are ready for the term ahead which will be full of fun, laughter and learning. Here on the Rowan class page, you will find lots of news and information about our class and find out all about our wonderful learning.
Your class teacher is me, Mrs Staff and our teaching assistant is Miss Buckmaster who will be with us in the mornings. On Wednesdays you will be taught by Mrs Finn.
Autumn Term Curriculum Overview
You will receive the list of statutory spellings for your year group. These are for you to learn throughout the course of the year. We will learn spelling patterns each week in class through our spelling lessons and you will receive a spelling booklet with all the spellings for this half term. You should practice these during the week.
See the statutory spelling lists for each year group at the bottom of the page if you would like to do any additional spelling with your child/ren.
In Rowan Class we use Times Tables Rockstars to practise our times tables. Each half term we will test your times tables knowledge and TT Rockstars will work out which ones you need to practise next! You can practise as much as you like at home on this - your login is on your journal - but you have to do at least 20 minutes a week at home on it!
You will have a colour-banded reading book. At school, an adult will hear you read this book at least once a week and will record this in your journal. Reading books will be sent home along with their journal. You should read at least four times a week for ten minutes each time at home. Please record any reading at home - just the date, pages and title is more than enough.
Please bring in your journal daily, we will use these to communicate anything you need to practice at home and grown ups can use this to communicate with me too!
We have set reading books for our class on Rising stars:
We will be continuing to use Seesaw! Seesaw is our online learning platform where we were sending all of our learning to the children during the lockdown period and they were sending it back and communicating directly with us. We loved seeing all the learning going on at home! Now we send our weekly learning conversations and any homework. Below is the link to where each child is given an individual login to access...
PE is Wednesday. Please make sure that you have the right kit for the weather and come to school wearing it instead of your usual school uniform!
Swimming in on Tuesdays. Please make sure that you bring your swimming costume/trunks, a towel and a swimming hat on Tuesdays. Goggles can also be used if you wish to use them.
Yoga - You will also have yoga on a Wednesday, you do not need to come to school in your PE kit for this.
Pencil Cases are not needed - we will provide you with a pencil case of all the things you will need in class! Please do not bring any pens, pencils, rubbers etc. in from home.
