Class Two is all set for another year of fun and learning. Please do look at the curriculum page so you know what topic your child is doing each half term. Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on Wednesday. Swimming will be happening on a Thursday, with French and ICT on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on Monday morning as we will need to fit in another PE lesson during the week on top of the swimming lesson. They will need swimming trunks, one piece, towel and goggles each Thursday. Parent reading will be on Thursday mornings so please come along and share a book with your child. Guitar lessons will be continuing on a Friday morning and it is lovely seeing their musical talents developing.
If you have any concerns come and chat to me or send a message via Dojo as the more we work together, the more your child will get out of the year.

At Saint Patrick's we are part of the maths mastery teaching alliance and an integral part of that is ongoing support from our school development lead Sarah Lambert. On the 14th of November, she came over to evaluate how the teaching and learning of maths mastery was going in our school. She was very positive about what she saw which made me very very proud indeed. The following is a quote from her explaining her findings during her visit :
"The children clearly love maths and are keen to share their mathematical thinking. They enjoy discussing the maths they are doing and use precise mathematical vocabulary when doing so. The children ask questions about their learning and are eager to be challenged."
