WELCOME TO CLASS 2
 
Class 2 consists  of Year 1 and Year 2 children.
 
Our aim is to ensure that every child feels that they are part of a caring class. A class in which they feel confident enough to try new things without fear of failure. A class in which everybody has something to offer. Our aspiration is that the children in Class 2 will become self-motivated learners through a varied and exciting curriculum. Parental help is always welcome in Class 2, whether to discuss their child's progress or to help on educational visits.
 
We want Class 2 children to enjoy school and look forward to the opportunities each new day offers.
 
Key Timings:
PE - Tuesday afternoons.
Homework - Year 2 and Year 1 homework grids to be sent home at the start of each half term.
 
Spellings - Issued on Mondays and tested on Fridays. Please practice at home to help your child develop vocabulary and spelling. 
 
Your child will need to read to an adult at home every day and have their Reading Record signed daily. Any notes from staff will also go in the Reading Record so it is worth checking daily.
 
If you have any queries or questions, please come and ask a member of the class 2 team. We are more than happy to help. Alternatively we are happy to make appointments for the end of the school day if you'd like more time to discuss your child.
Class 2 Home School Link - Class toy
 
Our class toy is Marmaduke the very different dragon. At the end of each week he will pick a child to go home with who has worked hard on being a superstar, both with their work and general manners. We have already shared the story with your child; you might like to share it with them at home as well or your child might like to read it to you. It would be lovely if you or your child could write a little diary entry with a picture or drawing so we can share their experiences with the class.

PHONICS

In class 2 we will continue to follow the systematic approach to phonics called Read, Write Inc.
 
We will recap the learning from the Foundation Stage, enhancing upon your child's knowledge to make them fluent and able readers.
 
It is always helpful to practice what we are learning at school, but if you feel you are a little unsure on how to pronounce the sounds here is a clip from the RWInc site which will help you.

 
 

Below are the Year 1 and Year 2 spelling lists and an overview of the spelling rules/sounds to be taught for each wordlist. At Mawgan-in-Pydar, we follow the 'Shakespeare and More' spelling scheme. The spelling overview explains how this scheme works.

In line with the National Curriculum, these spellings will be taught through daily activities and investigations. There are lots of fun ways to practise these words, to help children remember the spelling sounds and rules. As an additional learning task, please practise these spellings at home. Please note, any additional learning you do at home will support your child’s learning at school.
