Welcome to Squirrel Class
We are a Year 2 class and our teachers are Mrs Beck from Monday to Thursday and Mrs Howe on Thursday afternoon and Friday.
Our class is a safe, kind and caring place to be, where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential. Squirrel class always do their best to work hard and believe that they can achieve anything if they don't give up and learn from their mistakes.
Squirrel class created a beautiful, collaborative piece of art as part of our whole school theme of 'Trees' based on the work of artist 'Eloise Renouf'.
Helping your child with their learning
We really want your child to develop a love of reading! Encourage them to read and share with you a range of different books, both fiction and non-fiction.
We encourage your child to read with an adult at least five time a week. Do remember to record when and what your child reads in the reading record book and please do have lots of conversations about the books they are reading.
Our vision for maths is for all children to have a positive, 'I can do' attitude towards maths and become fluent, confident and resilient mathematicians.
We encourage you to support your child with their 'Doodle maths' work which will be set once a week to consolidate their learning in class.
Spelling lessons take place every Monday and the children will be tested on their spellings learnt from the previous week. Spelling lists will be sent out each term. Please check on ClassDojo each term for the new list. Children can access spelling activities on the 'Spelling Shed' website.
