Welcome to Class 2 with Mrs Brana

 

 

Autumn Term

Our topic this half term is All About Me and Healthy Heroes.

 

 Our value this half term is ‘Perseverance’.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.   

Corinthians 16:13


 

 

P.E. is on Mondays and you can wear your kit to school.

Spelling tests are on Fridays, all of our spelling lists are on our Google Classroom page. Class 2 2022-2023.

Reading takes place every day with group reading sessions at the start of the day and children read as individuals to an adult. Your child's progress in reading should continue to be developed at home though shared reading experiences with their book in their book bag and also online with BUG CLUB.
