Mrs Hunter's and Mrs Leggates' class
Welcome to Class 2HL's page. We are a hardworking group of Year 3 and Year 4 children who love to learn new things!
Our teachers are Mrs Hunter and Mrs Leggate. Mrs Dixon and Mrs Evans help us with our learning each day.
Mrs Leggate works every Monday and Tuesday. Mrs Hunter works every Thursday and Friday. We alternate every Wednesday. We are really lucky to have Spanish with Mrs Lauder and ICT with Mr Whalley every week.
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. Mrs Leggate will collect our reading diaries on a MONDAY morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed at least 3 times a week. It is important to bring our book bags to school everyday for letters and other important information.
We are given Maths homework every TUESDAY. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following MONDAY. Mrs Hunter will also send our English homework out on a THURSDAY. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following WEDNESDAY.
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.
Please have your PE kits in school throughout the week. It is also very important that all belongings are clearly named. If children are wearing earrings, 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.
It is important to bring a water bottle to school everyday, 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.
Welcome back. We hope you all enjoyed a lovely summer break.
Please read 2HL's newletter to see what will be happening this term....
Welcome back after a lovely break at Christmas. This term, we are looking at how the Anglo Saxons settled here in this country and we are reading King Arthur. As part of English lessons, we are spending a lot of time looking at dragons! We are writing instructions about how to catch them, writing non-chronological reports about where to find them and writing stories that involve them! An exciting term!
Science will see us looking at 'States of Matter'; changing state and the water cycle.
Friday afternoons will now be a full afternoon of PE - inside for gymnastics and then outside for Multi-skills, so children need to make sure that they have PE kit for both inside and outside.
