Ladygrove Primary School & Nursery

Welcome to Class 5

Welcome to our class page.

 

Mrs A Skelton and Miss L Castree

We will be having PE on Monday and Friday, please ensure you all have your PE kits with you.

 

Learning is engaging in Year 2 and Mrs Skelton continually reminds us that ‘’attitude is more important than ability’’.

We use the Building Learning Power animals to be resourceful, reflective and resilient in when we are working and being a good team member is important to us.

Our learning is cross-curricular as far as possible, which helps us to make links across all the subjects and develop a depth of knowledge in our chose topic.

Every half term, Mrs Skelton introduces a different topic with which we, as a class, immerse ourselves in.

Reading is at the heart of our learning and always linked to our topic. As a class, we enjoy sharing stories and developing our understanding of the text.

Homework is set on a Friday and taken in the following Thursday.

Spellings are given out on a Friday for the children to learn them in preparation for their test the following Friday.

You need to enjoy reading your reading books at least three times a week, reading records need to be handed in every day please.

This half term our topic is Rio de Vida

Dancing feet, step to the samba beat. Shake it, shimmy, hands in the air, wave your flags in the cool night air. Come join the party down in Rio, keeping the rhythm with your party shaker. Bright colours, patterns and feathers. Can you make a headdress or party mask? Meet magical creatures from Brazil’s myths and legends and create your own too. Be as fancy as you like. Let’s get down to Rio where football is king, and practise our skills on golden beaches. Now we need to plan a celebration with fabulous music and song. Let’s invite parents and friends to come along. Bem-vindo ao Brasil os meus amigos.

We allow staff time off to undertake union official duties, however we do not have any staff who are currently union officials.
