Welcome to The Colour Monsters Y2F
It is a pleasure to welcome your children to The Colour Monsters.
Our class contains enthusiastic, happy and charismatic children from 2. We aim to work hard but laugh a lot along the way.
Updates of your children enjoying their learning will be posted on Class Dojo weekly so make sure you like and enjoy these snap shots.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at school or on the door upon collection.
Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities throughout the week to read a variety of texts and will then undertake an online quiz to assess their understanding of the text.
Miss Forsyth is out of class on a Monday afternoon and Friday all day. For this session, Mrs Adams will be in class to continue their learning. I am sure they will have lots of fun with her too.
In Year 2, children are expected to complete one to two pieces of homework a week.
Your child has been provided with both CGP English and maths books to complete their homework. Each week, they will be provided with different page numbers in order to complete different tasks from each book!
Weekly spellings will be every Wednesday. You should practise these throughout the week, to be tested on these for the Monday afternoon!
PE will take place every …
Swimming is on Thursdays
It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit, or vegetables and milk. We also encourage your child to water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch.
