King's Ford Infant School And Nursery

'Where everyone matters and every day counts'

Welcome to Purple Class!

Hello everyone! We are Purple class and we are in year 2. We currently have 21 pupils and our teacher is Mr. Chase and our LSA is Miss. Clark.

This term the whole school topic is ‘Beside the Seaside’ and we will be learning about coastal locations, Australia, animal habitats and plants. We will also watch scenes from the film ‘A Turtle’s Tale’ to help inspire us. We will continue our fortnightly Forest Schools sessions where we explore and learn using the outdoor environment.

The Key Stage One SATs assessments will take place starting the week beginning Tuesday 8th May for all year 2 pupils. This will include two maths papers (arithmetic and reasoning) and two reading comprehension papers.

We have two educational visits in the summer term. On Tuesday 1st May we will be visiting Layer Marney Towers as part of last term’s focus on the Tudors. On Monday 16th July we will be going to the beach at Frinton-on-Sea as part of our geography focus on coastal locations. Letters will go out nearer the time with more details.

Please see the topic grid for this term which goes into more detail regarding some of the activities we will be taking part in as we lead up to the end of the school year. A copy of the weekly homework letters will also be available here on the school website.

Also, please ensure that children have a P.E. kit in school and that their plimsolls/trainers still fit.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Chase or another member of the year two team.

 

Thank you for reading.

Mr Chase and Purple class
