Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely Easter!
This term our topic is space and the children can look forward to building space buggies! We are also looking forward to our whole class music ensemble beginning this half term. Each child in Class 2 will be learning to play the Ukele. It's a very exciting opportunity and takes place every Monday. Each child has their own instrument and it is hoped that this year the children can prepare for a performance for you to enjoy!
PE continues to be on Monday and Tuesday afternoons so please ensure your child has suitable footwear and kit on these days.
Spellings will be given out on Mondays and tested on every Friday. Children are rewarded with a prize for 100% marks so keep up the good work! Please continue to log in to Spelling and Maths Shed for activities set by the class teacher. If you are unsure of log-in details please see the class teacher.
Reading continues to be a high priority in Class 2 so please ensure your child reads regularly and bring in their book bag every day. Thank you.
Please take a look at our homework grid and pick an interesting activity for each week. These do not have to be completed in any particular order. We love to see your child's fantastic work so please send it in for us to look at.
Please take a look at summer 1 knowledge organiser for our learning this term. You will find our vocabulary dozen for this half term. These are topic vocabulary words we will be learning in class.
Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your support. Any questions, please feel free to ask.

As part of our science linked to our topic of Tim Peak, we investigated the most suitable packaging to take food into space. We tested the packaging by pouring cold soup into them (its looks a bit disgusting as you will see!). We tested tin foil, kitchen roll, cardboard and a plastic resealable bag. We predicted what might happen and then found out that the most suitable packing was the plastic resealable bag.
We have been using counters to help us understand place value when adding and subtracting.
Thank you for the homework that you have completed so far, we have been amazed by the standard. It's lovely to have our classroom filled with hot air balloons!
