Miss Keatman's Class 2020 - 2021

Miss Keatman

My name is Miss Keatman and I am the Year 2 class teacher.

I have been at Alsager Highfields for 11 years now and this is my third year in year two. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges of year two, helping to prepare the children for their transition into the juniors.
Out of school, I have two boys; my eldest son is heading into the Queen's Coldstream Guards in London and my youngest is a sponsored skateboarder, so I can usually be found at skateparks up and down the country.  

If I have some time for myself, I enjoy watching a film or curling up with a good book.

You will also see Miss Hook and Miss Byron in our class this year. They will both be working with us at different times throughout the week.  Miss Hook has been at Alsager Highfields for over 10 years as an invaluable HLTA and we welcome Miss Byron as a new member of staff.

Continuing the learning journey at home... 

Monday 21st September

Literacy

This week we will be continuing to look at the book 'The Jolly Postman'.  We will be writing our character descriptions using the noun phrases we created and then planning our own about The Three Bears.  

We will continue to practise our handwriting and weekly spelling pattern.

We will also be learning about commas in lists and adjectives (describing words) too.

Maths

Maths this week will be all about adding two two-digit numbers.  We will be recapping tens and ones, partitioning numbers and counting on from any number.

PHSE

In PSHE this week we will be introducing Tom Percival's book 'Ruby's Worry'.  We will be discussing things that we love to do and towards the end of the week we will start to think about what worries us.

Science

This week we will be learning about habitats and where animals live and find food.

Design and Technology

In Design and technology (D&T) this week we will be starting to learn about healthy foods.  

Computing

In computing this week we will be continuing to code by looking at functions that we need in our codes.

Art

In art this week, we will be continuing to draw a self portrait of ourselves using mirrors.  We will look at where our features are and how to draw them.

PE

PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays and will be 'fitness' and 'fundamentals of PE'.   

Please don't forget, your child will need to come to school in their PE kit on these days.  We will be doing PE outside, weather permitting, so school PE joggers and the school logo'd hoodie with their yellow school logo t-shirt would be the best choice.  

Homework

Homework this week:

Pages 2 and 3 in their Grammar and Spelling books please.

Maths is stuck in their red books.

Their spelling words are in their reading diaries.

Messages for the week ahead.

Reading books and reading diaries have been sent home this week.  Please read and sign the permissions and agreements in the front of the diary.  

Thank you for your continued support.
