Hedgehogs

Year 2 - Miss F. Johnson

 

My name is Miss Johnson and I am the teacher of Hedgehogs class.  The other adults who will be working in our classroom are Mrs Robins, Mrs Mansell and Mrs Farrugia.

We will begin this year by focusing on the story ‘The Jungle Book’. We will spend time getting to know the story by using role play and story telling. We will also be describing the characters and the setting. Throughout this term we will also be developing on their spelling, punctuation and grammar understanding.

To start our ‘Walk Through Time’ topic we will be visiting the Dean Heritage Centre and learning about the Victorian Era. We will be exploring what life would have been like and we will also be having a Victorian Day in school. During this topic we will also be learning about light and dark, shadows and electricity in science. Through art and design work we will be making puppets and looking at a famous Victorian artist.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure PE kits are in school. As we will be spending some time in forest schools it would be great if the children could have suitable warm clothing and footwear which could be left in school during the autumn term.

We will also set a homework pack with weekly activities to complete. The activity pack will be handed out in the first week and can be returned at the end of term or weekly if preferred. The children will receive merits for each completed piece of homework handed in. It is also essential that you hear your child read daily and support them with their phonic packs. A merit will be given each time your child reads at home. We will also be focusing on times tables so please practice these with your child at home. We will be focusing on number bonds to 10 and 20.

We look forward to an exciting year filled with engaging learning opportunities.
