Mrs Lindblad

Welcome to our class page!

As always, if you have questions relating to any aspect of school life please do not hesitate to contact me by email mrslindblad@alsagerhighfields.cheshire.sch.uk or come in to see me at the end of the school day. Thank you, Mrs Lindblad.

 

Please see the Summer Curriculum Overview for Parents file in the 'Files to download' section for details on what we will be learning this term.

 

Welcome back to school for the first half of the summer term. I hope that you have enjoyed the Easter break and that you are happy to be back at school. I can't wait to start our new castle topic that begins with our trip to Stafford Castle on Wednesday 24th April.

This term we are going to base our learning around the theme of Castles. If you have any have artefacts, knowledge or just a keen interest in anything linked to castles that you would be happy to share with us, then please let us know.

PPA

During this half term our PPA on Tuesday afternoon will be Forest Fun with Miss Astbury. Please make sure that your child has a correct outdoor kit in school every Tuesday. 

Kit: long sleved top and trousers, coat and wellies

 

P.E.

We will be doing P.E. on a Monday afternoon. Please make sure that your child has the correct kit each Monday.

Kit: Pumps or Trainers, black track suit bottoms or shorts (weather dependent), yellow school t-shirt and black jumper.

 

 

Snacks:

Please can we remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be a healthy choice and not chocolate, sweets or crisps. If your child would like toast from the kitchen please send them with 20p as they are now able to go and buy it themselves. There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack and all children are encouraged to eat a piece of fruit every afternoon.

 

Water Bottles:

As we start the summer term please make sure that your child comes to school with a named water bottle. We encourage children to drink water regularly and would appreciate your support with this.

In addition, as the weather hopefully becomes more sunny please make sure that you apply the long lasting suncream to your child each morning. This stops the need for them to reapply it themselves during the day.

 

Reading:

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  They have a planner that you can date and record their reading in.  You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to.

If you wish to pass on a message to your child’s teacher, please feel free to write it in their planner but please ask your child to take it to their teacher as we do not always check the planners every day.

 

Spellings:

As with last term we will be sending 10 spellings a week home for the children to learn.  They will be tested on a Friday with a new set of spellings being sent home on a Friday afternoon.

 

Phonics:

Below in the files section you will find a copy of the Jolly Phonics card as a reminder for you, showing the pictures for the phonemes that your child has been taught at school and which we continue to use when spelling in our independent writing activities.

 

SATs

Year 2 SATs in reading, writing and maths take place in May. Since the children are only 6 and 7 years old we do our very best not to make a big deal out of the tests. We try to make them fun where possible and make sure that they have been exposed to similar tests a few times before hand. The children will take the tests in small groups and will sit with a familar adult (Myself, Mrs. Windel, Miss Hook or Mrs Riley). The information that we gave out about the tests in September can be found in the 'files to download' section as can the framework that we use for assessing reading, writing, maths and science. If you have any concerns about SATs then please come and have a chat.
