Welcome to Class Diamond
We are a Year 2 class. Mrs Dimmick teaches on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Tolley teaches on a Thursday and Friday. We are also lucky to have Mrs Shepherd (LSA) in our class lots too.
Although we will use ‘Seesaw’ (our online learning platform) to send home messages throughout the year, and of course to ‘set’ your weekly Home-Learning tasks, this Class Page shares with you some of the information you might need throughout the year.
Reading books will come home on Friday and must be returned on Monday.
Home Learning: There will be a Seesaw task set each week (Out on Thursday - due in Tuesday) . These will be either phonics or Maths.
P.E: Indoor PE is on a Thursday and Outdoor PE is on a Tuesday - please come in your kit on both days. As the weather is getting colder we suggest wearing a warm pair of long trousers, a t-shirt, a long sleeved top and a pair of trainers. Please remember to bring spare socks and shoes.
We do the Mountfields Mile on a Monday so please try to remember to bring a spare pair of shoes in to school for this (either wear your trainers and bring your school shoes in a bag, or vice versa).
Remember all you need is a coat, your reading book and your lunch box each day. Please do not bring anything you don't need. This helps us keep our classroom tidy.
Here is what we shall be doing during the Autumn Term:
English - The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch, sentence writing, poetry and The Snowman.
