Enriching Lives

Mr Martin

2AM is full of children who are eager and excited about learning. We have lots of new things happening over this year can't wait to see the children making progress in their learning and developing in their next stage of education.

 

In our classroom we have Mrs Plater who works with us, as well as Mrs Webb who support our learning us every morning. Mrs Lauder is our amazing Spanish teacher and teaches Spanish every other term.

 

General Information

Reading:

We are able to change our reading book whenever we have finished reading it. We note down the page numbers we have read and ask an adult from home to sign the relevant part in our reading diaries. Mr Martin will collect our reading diaries on a Tuesday morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed on at least 3 separate occasions a week. 

 

Homework:

We are given Maths homework every Wednesday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday to be marked. Miss Robinson will also send our English homework out on a Friday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.

 

Spellings:

Spellings for each week are in the children's planners. Each week the children should practise at home 4 times, there is space for this in the planner. However, if spellings are completed in another manner (iPads, notebooks etc.) please indicate how many times they have done this and ensure that you sign the spelling page in the planner. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.

 

PE:

If children are wearing earrings, we ask that parents and carers ensure that they are able to remove them for PE or provide tape for them to be covered up to meet health and safety recommendations. Long hair should be tied up for PE and tights should be replaced with socks for PE lessons. PE days in Term 2 are Monday (outdoors) and Tuesday (indoors).

 

Staying healthy:

It is important to bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with fresh water. In addition, children can bring a healthy snack for break time. These snacks should meet the agreed list: fruit, vegetables, cheese or yoghurt.
