Miss Keatman's Class 2020 - 2021
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.
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 30th November
This week is: ASSESSMENT WEEK so we will be completing short tests each morning.
This week, we will be writing a letter to Father Christmas.
After that, we will be retelling the Christian story of Christmas.
In grammar, we will be looking at apostrophes when writing contractions.
We will continue to practise our handwriting and our weekly spelling patterns.
In maths this week, we will be finishing our work on length measurement and then starting our measurement of mass.
In PSHE we will be thinking about friendships using 'Friendship Terrace'. Last week we met the character Bragging Bradley and this week we will be learning about Manisha Mine. The stories help children to recognise 'friendship blockers' and 'friendship builders'.
This week we will be continuing with our new topic of 'animals and their habitats'. We will be researching a habitat and discovering the animals that live there.
Design and Technology
In Design and technology (D&T) this week we will be continuing to create our Christmas decorations.
In computing this week we will be continuing to learn all about spreadsheets. Last week we learnt how to use coins and amounts to solve money addition within our spreadsheets.
PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays and will be 'Ball Skills' and 'Team Games'. Last week we managed 6 or 7 laps of the field during our warm up! We are all building our aerobic fitness and we all feel much fitter!
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 this week:
Page 41 in their Grammar and Spelling books please.
Maths homework sheets are in your child's homework books. They are all about length.
Their spelling words are in their reading diaries and they have a handwriting sheet to help them to remember them (this is optional).
Messages for the week ahead.
Please see the Autumn Term Overview file below.
Dates for your diary
Please could you provide a healthy snack in recyclable packaging for your child to eat at playtime.
