Welcome to Oak Class
Teacher: Mrs Metcalfe and Miss Henderson
Teaching Assistant: Miss Passmore
We are one of the Year 2 classes at St James Church School.
It is expected that children will read at home using Bug Club for a minimum of three times per week. Bug Club is an excellent resource that has interactive questions about the book they have just read. This supports the children's comprehension skills. If you have any questions about Bug Club please come and ask. Logins for Bug Club will be in their Home Learning Journal and a bookmark was sent home at the end of the first week of school with their details on.
Times tables are an essential part of every child's learning. The children need to have a rapid recall and use multiplication and division facts and we will be starting with the 2, 5 and 10 times table.
Any practice at home will really help to develop these Maths skills and speed. There are many websites and apps to support learning in this area. Each child has their own login details for Times Table Rockstars, which is an interactive game that helps children with their times table recall. Login details are available in your child's Home Learning Journal.
We will focus on the a specific spelling rule each week within school and the children will be provided with a list of spellings that they need to practice each week and will need to write out their spellings everyday. Please help your child to learn their spellings, they will be quizzed on them on a Friday.
This term our learning expedition will be focused on Fire! Fire! Have a look at the curriculum map below to find out what we will be learning about. Oak Class loved building their own fire in forest school and toasting marshmallows to begin this learning expedition.
