Class 2

Updated 16th January

Welcome to Class 2

Our teacher is Mrs Condra and our teaching assistant is Miss Hollins.

There are 23 children in the class: fourteen are in year 2 and nine are in year 3. We have 8 girls and 15 boys in the class.

Week beginning 11th January 2021

From today your child’s class teacher will email parents each day (it will actually be the evening before) with a list of activities to complete during the following day. The school is setting approximately 2-3 hours of activities each day; parents and children can then choose how best to organise the day ahead. Please acknowledge receipt of emails. Parents can let us know of anything they’ve found tricky that we may need to cover again. It would be helpful if certain task are photographed and emailed back so we can see how they’re getting on.

Children learn and work at different rates so you may find your child sometimes completes a task very quickly. If they are taking much longer than the time indicated for the session, please don’t feel they have to complete it.

 

Thank you to everyone who has shared their home learning this week. Our stars of the week are George and Roman. Well done boys!
