Squirrels

Year 2 - Mrs L. Newell and Mrs H. Haworth

 

Our names are Mrs Haworth and Mrs Newell and we are the class teachers of Squirrels class.  Mrs Haworth teaches the class at the start of the week and Mrs Newell at the end of the week. The other adults who work in our class are Miss Davis and Mrs Bluett

We will begin the topic by looking at ‘The Jungle Book’.  We will be using story telling actions to retell the story and creating artwork. For the rest of the term our topic will be ‘Walk Through Time’ where we will focusing on History and looking at the Victorians.

We have many exciting activities planned for the children including a visit to the Dean Heritage Centre to experience what life was like in the Victorian era as well as spending some time learning beyond the classroom in the forest school area. For this reason we would be grateful if your child could be provided with a set of old clothes and shoes/wellies to leave in school during the term. Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure your child has a PE kit in school each week including t shirt, shorts and daps. 

We will also set a homework pack with weekly activities to complete all of which link to the work we have been covering in class and the topic. However it is also essential that you hear your child read daily and support them with their phonic packs.

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