Hello, and welcome to Year 2 Chestnut Class! Our class teachers are Mrs Inwood and Mrs Hopper and are supported by Miss Leetham, Mrs Bell and Ms Bowyer.
Please message Mrs Hopper (Monday and Tuesday) or Mrs Inwood (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) on Class Dojo if you have any questions or concerns.
PE and Homework
Chestnut Class will be doing PE every Wednesday and Thursday, and the children need to come in to school wearing their PE kit on their PE day. They will stay in these clothes for the day. Children should wear a plain, white T-shirt, black joggers or shorts, and a plain, black jumper if it's cold.
Homework will be set every Thursday, and will consist of a Mathletics task, set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed), a Reading task (reading their home reading book and/or using Reading Eggs) and a simple Writing task.
Please make sure reading records are signed by an adult every time they read with their child. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as they can, every day if possible (even if it's just a page!) Children will choose reading books on their own reading level, and they can read their books at their own pace and change them at school when they are ready for a new one. If the child is on Accelerated Reader, they will take a short comprehension test (quiz) on an Ipad before they change their book, to make sure they've understood what they've read.
