Maple Class (Year 2)

Welcome to Maple Class!

Hello I am Miss Abbott and I teach the year 2 our class with the support of our fantastic teaching assistants Mrs Slade and Mrs Wiater.

In Maple class we enjoy learning and we know how to work hard whilst still having fun!

We appreciate the enjoyment and importance of reading. Therefore, here at Newtown we have the 100 club where children can win prizes for the amount of time they have read at home. Who will be the first to reach the amazing milestone of 100 reads?

Key things to remember:

  • PE kit needs to be in school every day. 
  • Children are expected to read daily and record this in their reading logs.
  • Maths homework will be set every Monday and will be linked to what we have been learning in class. Spellings homework will also be set on a Monday; all homework should be completed by Friday.

 

The learning destination book can also be used for any additional home learning that your child wishes to be included.

 

Make sure that you come back to this class page so that you can see what exciting things our class have been getting up to at school.
