Class 2’s weekly time table

This term we are learning all about Houses and Homes.

Please click here to see our topic planning 

We’ve started by looking at our own houses and homes and comparing different types of homes that people may live in. As part of our topic we are looking at the ‘Hansel and Gretel’ story during our Literacy lessons.


Your child will be taking part in P.E lessons every Monday and Wednesday. Please could you make sure that their correct P.E kits are available on Wednesdays. The children should be wearing black shorts, white t’shirts and plimsoles or trainers.



Book bags need to be in school daily. Please can you make sure your children’s book bags are placed in the boxes provided. We check all of the book bags daily so there is no need to remove any books from your child’s bag. We will change books if they have been finished.

High frequency words will soon sent home for you to practise with your child during the week. There will be on going assessments in class to track the children’s progress and new words will be sent home as appropriate. If you recieve these words they will be on an A4 piece of paper, all of the words that are not ticked are the words you need to practise.

Please click here to see the first 100 high frequency words and the next 200 high frequency words that we will be learning to read and spell during KS1.
