Class 2JM 2018-2019
Welcome to our class page!
These are our school 'rules'. We have talked about what each one means and how we demonstrate each of these in school.
We have also talked about how they link with our school moto:
"Success comes through personal effort!"
We certainly have a lot of exciting learning planned for the coming term! Keep checking this page, the news items and the gallery for updates. Scroll to the bottom of the page for key information.
Friday 14th June 2019
As you will have read on the newsletter, we will no longer be sending homework for children to complete. Every Thursday we will put some 'Talk Topics' on the website under the news section. These will be in the form of questions that you could ask your children to encourage them to talk about their learning in school and extend it further. We will no longer provide children with spellings to practise for a spelling test on a Friday. However, we will continue to put spellings that we have been covering in school on Spelling Shed, so they can work on these at home if they choose.
