Welcome to Panthers' class!
In Year 2, our teacher is Miss Jolland. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Carpenter as our teaching assistant.
A day in the life of a ‘Panther’ consists of English, Phonics, Maths and Whole class Reading. In addition, across the week we also have, Music, History/Geography, PE, PSHE, RE, Science, Computing and Art/DT. On Fridays, Panthers have their spelling tests where they have the opportunity to demonstrate and apply their learning and understanding from their weekly phonic sessions. This all makes for a very busy timetable!
We have really hit the ground running this Autumn Term where we have been building upon our knowledge and learning from Year 1! Some of what we are going to be doing this year includes a study about The Great Fire of London, looking into Kedington as a village and its history, as well as a more in-depth look at the geographical world around us.
The introduction of knowledge organisers was a real success last year and due to this we have now introduced them for History/Geography, Science and RE. You will find the children’s knowledge organisers in their homework books and new ones will be put in when we approach a new topic in these subjects. Spending time looking at these with your children is a key part in helping to embed new knowledge and information.
To help gain a greater understanding of what we get up to day to day in the Panthers' class, please be sure to check our class dojo page for photos and any messages. Please also use this as a way of contacting me if you do have any questions.
We are only at the beginning of the Autumn term and it is already evident that this is going to be a very fun, exciting and successful year for our Year 2’s!
