In Class 8, the teachers are Mr Ward, Ms Aziz and Mrs Parveen. It has been wonderful to welcome all of the new Year 2 children back to Whitefield after the Summer holidays! They have settled in brilliantly and it is already starting to feel like we have never been away.
We will update our webpage regularly to showcase the children's learning so please do keep checking in to see what is happening.
If you have any questions, please feel free to come and speak to any members of staff at the start or end of the day.
We are all looking forward to a successful and productive year ahead.
Our PE day is Tuesday. Please send children to school on this day wearing their full PE kit as well as their school jumper. As a reminder, school PE kit consists of:
Children will remain in their PE kit all day and will still play out at play-times so please dress appropriately and consider the weather on the day.
We will hear children read throughout the week. Each child will read to one of the teachers at least once a week. We will change their books on a regular basis but some children may be asked to keep a book for a number of days. This is to improve their confidence and fluency and help them to make faster progress. Their reading book is carefully matched to their phonics ability. Please do not worry if your child finds their reading book easy - they are supposed to! We request that you spend at least 10 minutes a day listening to your child read at home. This is essential to support their progress in all areas of their learning.
Each child will receive home learning. This will usually consist of literacy and maths but could be replaced with a project, research or other task relating to a 'topic' area. This will be given out on a Wednesday and should be returned by Monday. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, please speak to a member of our class team.
The children have been given log in information to access certain sites. If you are unable to access any of the games or websites, please speak to a member of our class team.
