Physical activity sessions will be held weekly on a Wednesday and Friday. The children will be taught a range of skills that will continue to develop what they already have been taught.
Please also remember that your child can develop their skills by TTRS at home, Reading Eggs and Spellodrome on the internet. We have found that the sites are fun and an excellent vehicle for learning! Children should also be learning their times tables as all children are expected to know each multiplication table (up to 12 x 12) by heart by the time they reach secondary school.
We love earning Dojo Points in class. We can earn points for demonstrating our whole school learning behaviours: creativity, curiosity, independence, reflection, resilience and teamwork. Every time we are 'caught' using these learning behaviours we receive a Dojo point from the teachers. We can collect Dojo points to earn rewards. Our Class Dojo is linked to our parents and we can share our learning directly with them
This year, Pride Class are focusing on our reading skills. When the children have completed a book, they can log on to their REN learning area using the link below and complete a quiz about it. The children can also log on a home and complete quizzes. They all have their own user name and passwords. They can show you all of the books they have read and all of the quizzes they have passed.
Children should also be learning their times tables as all children are expected to know each multiplication table (up to 12 x 12) by heart by the time they reach secondary school. This will also help them to prepare for the times table check in Year 4. Year 2 should be learning their twos, fives, tens and threes.
