Welcome to New Zealand! (Year 2)
In Class New Zealand our teacher encourages us to always try our best and never give up.
Our New Zealand class teacher is Mrs Cooper and our fabulous teaching assistants are Mrs Grimes, Mrs Cunningham and Miss Jones.
Zones of regulation
In New Zealand we believe in helping each other regulate our emotions. Every child has created there own individual plan to regulate their own emotions. Each morning and afternoon we use our ‘check in’ times to discuss our zones of regulations and emotions. We also love to take part in Yoga and mindfulness sessions to make sure we are ready to learn.
Please remember to bring in your school water bottle every day. Water is very good for our brains! Water bottles will be sent home every night to be washed and refilled ready for the next day.
New Zealand have PE on a Wednesday.
Please make sure that your child comes to school in their PE kit as most of our PE will be outside, please ensure they are wearing a tracksuit. Other kit can be a white T-shirt, black shorts/leggings and pumps or trainers.
New Zealand will receive their homework every Friday. It will consist of Spellings which follow sounds we have been learning in class, some Maths work and a Power project which can we worked on over a half term. The more tasks you complete the more points you receive. Home learning will be uploaded to class dojo for you to complete and send back for marking. If you would prefer a hard copy just let us know by emailing the school office.
We hope to become super readers but we need your help. Please try and read with your child every night. Really focus on asking questions about their book as this will help them with their reading comprehension.
