Teacher: Miss Parry
Welcome to Class 2's web page!
Our topic this term is "Our Feathered Friends". In geography, we will be learning about birds in our local area. We will also be taking part in the "Big Garden Birdwatch". In art, we will be exploring the artwork of Lynn Norton and creating our own artistic bird paintings.
Active 30 will continue to be every day. Please make sure PE kits are clearly labelled and in school every day. This term we will be going swimming! So please bring your towel and swimming costume every Friday in a separate swimming bag.
Reading books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday. Children on Accelerated Reader are able to take a short test on their book and choose a new book whenever they need to. Please read with your child every night where possible, as this will help them to become confident readers. I would encourage you to read a variety of books in order to develop a true enjoyment of reading.
I've added a number of worksheets and activities available to download and complete at home with your child. Please see the files section of this page.
Your child will also go home with a "Learning Pack". This is also available within the files attached.
Children have also been given their Spellingshed login (Year 1 and 2) and TT Rockstars login (Year 2). Both these apps are free to download and will help children with their spellings and times tables.
Please see the list below for useful websites that will help with home learning.
If your child would like to complete an accelerated reader test once they have finished reading a book, please click the link below. This will take you to the correct log in site for Calveley Academy.
If you want to share any of your home learning with me, then please send me an email. Include anything you want to ask or share – comments, pictures, photos and questions! The temporary class email is email@example.com

Calveley have loved World Book Day! We have all shared books and participated in a quiz about books that we would know. All of the costumes were fantastic and it was great to see the children so excited about the book characters that they came as.
What an amazing trip to Nantwich Library today! We spoke about the library, borrowing books and getting a library card. We then got to do some activities.
