Welcome to Chestnut Class
Welcome to Chestnut! Your children have made a fantastic start to Year 2 and it has been a pleasure getting to know them. The first three days of term were spent familiarising themselves with their new classroom and resources, undertaking a treasure hunt or two and hearing about what we will be learning this year.
Our topic for this term is Coastline. Among other things, the children are looking forward to learning about sea creatures and their habitats, rock pools, sea birds, hermit crabs and other crustaceans, as well as considering the threats posed to wildlife and the environment from plastic waste. We will learn about geography, science, undertake some exciting art projects, as well as write a letter in a bottle.
Your child will be sent home with a reading book every day. This is a book for them to read at home with you. Please ensure these are brought back into school each morning.
Reading every day is a very important part of your child’s learning. Please try to hear your child read every day for ten minutes and then record this in their Reading Record. I aim to hear your child read at least once a week and there will be plenty of other opportunities for them to read at school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please come in and see me,
- a change of shoes for the field (or wellies if you prefer)
- a fresh water bottle every day
- all belongings are named
