Welcome back . I am looking forward
to a happy and successful year ahead.
September will be a month spent revising
what has been learnt in 1st Class.
Revision will provide me with an opportunity
to assess the abilities of the children in the class.
Homework will begin on Monday,
when I will send home my homework policy.
We have a lot to learn and to look forward to this year.
In Maths we will be revising addition and takeaway tables.
Knowing these number facts thorough helps the children
when they are adding and subtracting using tens and units.
In English As well as working through our ‘readers’,
we will be reading ‘real’ books.
I have some enjoyable novels chosen for reading.
We will also be working on improving reading comprehension.
We will be revising the simple grammar that the children have
learned to date and will be working towards paragraphing by
the final term.
I hope to do the ‘Write A Book’ project with the class.

Early next term we will begin project work
in the areas of Science, Geography, History
and the Natural World.
I am also looking forward to teaching
the children to play the recorder.
Please Note: Dancing is scheduled for Mondays
and PE is on Thursday.
I enclose a questionnaire to enable me to get to know the
children, their interests and their needs more quickly.
With every good wish,
This questionnaire will help me to get to know your child
and what makes them tick more quickly.
It will also help me with my planning for the year ahead.
