Mrs Lindblad's Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs Lindblad

Year 2/3

Welcome back to school!

 

 

It has been a pleasure to welcome the children back into school and they have all settled in very well. I am very lucky to know most of the children in my class so well already so we are able to get off to a flying start. As always, if you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to contact me by email mrslindblad@alsagerhighfields.cheshire.sch.uk or see me at the end of the school day.

 

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

 

Our Story Topic this term is 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' and we have planned lots of exciting activities to tie in with this delightful book.

 

We will be learning about the UK in geography, drawing and painting pomegranates in art in addition to creating collages of London. In science our Autumn topic is 'Animals including Humans' and our topic in history is railways.

PPA

During this half term our PPA on Tuesday afternoon will be P.E. with AS Sports. Please make sure that your child has a correct P.E. kit in school every Tuesday. 

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

 

Snacks:

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 year 2 children are provided with a piece of fruit every afternoon.

 

Water Bottles:

As we start the new academic year,  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.

 

Homework:

Children will be given homework each week. This will consist of a daily reading, a piece of grammar, spellings, times tables and My Maths. Please see the homework letter in 'Files to download' for more details.

 

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:

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.

 

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, Miss Keatman  or Mrs Riley). We will give out information about the tests at our meeting on 18th September and it will also be available in the 'files to download' section after that time. The framework that we use for assessing reading, writing, maths and science can also be found in the same place. If you have any concerns about SATs then please come and have a chat.
