Welcome to Year 2 Zebras’ Class 2022-2023
In September, Mrs Merry is the teacher in Zebras’ class and the experienced Ms Parker is our lovely teaching assistant.
In the autumn term we will all work on familiarising ourselves with our new classroom and make our own class rules. We will have lots to do but we can have fun while working with our friends. We will all have jobs to help the smooth running of the class and elect our school council representatives. They will be our class voice, sharing ideas with the rest of the school and staff at meetings.
What we do in Zebras’ Class:
In Year 2, we work on our reading, writing and mathematics skills that build upon all of your hard work in Year 1. In English, we cover different styles of texts which include fiction, non-fiction and poetry. In the autumn term, we are learning about the Great Fire of London and writing our own poems. We follow a Maths mastery curriculum and lessons have six parts, but there is always time to practise some times tables too!. We use ‘Star Words’ in every lesson to help understand important Mathematical vocabulary.
We will be thinking about how we can develop a positive growth mindset and how we can grow together. Looking after ourselves and others, physically and mentally, is very important in our class. In the autumn term, the focus will be on ball skills where we will be learning throwing, catching and fielding techniques and working together as a team.
We are really looking forward to the next stage of our Blue School journey.
