Teacher : Mrs Fox
Introduction to Class
Welcome to Year 2! My name is Mrs Fox and I am the Year 2 teacher and the Assistant Headteacher. I have over 10 years of teaching experience and I specialise in the Foundation Phase. I love being a teacher and seeing the children grow, progress and flourish and I can’t wait to help my new class learn and develop.
In Year 2 we are very lucky to have two fantastic teaching assistants Mrs Beamson and Mrs McQueen who have a wealth of experience between them. They are both extremely creative and cement our solid Year 2 team.
Mrs James will also be joining us this year to teach the children on a Friday and to develop key English, Maths and Welsh skills throughout the week.
The topics this year are;
To Infinity and Beyond! Magic and Mystery Down in the Ocean!
This term our focus is ‘To Infinity and Beyond!’ which is everything to do with space! The children have assisted in the planning process and they have come up with some fantastic ideas to explore and develop.
The books we will focus on this term will be ‘Aliens Love Underpants,’ ‘Man on the Moon,’ and ‘The Way Back Home.’
On Tuesday of this week we had some unexpected visitors in our class…Aliens! The children were extremely excited about our extra-terrestrial visitors and it created quite a buzz in our classroom. So our work this term will be based on finding out about them, what they want, where they have come from, what they look like and planning a space themed party for the end of this term. The children will also find out about famous astronauts, our solar system, night and day, light, materials, rockets and the moon landings. We will be planning a space mission, making rockets and experimenting with different materials to make a moon buggy through lots of literacy and numeracy based activities.
The children have PE on a FRIDAY so they need to ensure their PE kit is in school EVERY week. Please make sure all items of clothing are clearly labelled.
Your child’s reading book will be changed on a MONDAY however reading takes place throughout the week so your child needs to ensure their book bag is in school EVERY DAY. If you could assist in reading with your child whenever you can it will make all the difference to their learning and development in the long run.
The class dojo login details will be sent out in due course and this will allow you to keep up to date with their positive behaviour progress. The children will also be uploading photos and their work on the class story to show you all the exciting things we will be doing.
In foundation Phase the children learn through focused and enhanced activities with an emphasis on play and we hope to develop their independence skills through these activities. Currently, we are developing out outdoor area and the children will be exploring it in all weathers this year. As it can get quite muddy at the back it would be beneficial if you provide your child with wellies (which can be kept in school) to save those new school shoes getting dirty!
If you have any worries, concerns or just would like to have a little chat please don’t hesitate to come in or arrange a meeting, I am more than happy to help.
