Welcome to Madrid Class.



We are really looking forward to working with you all this year.

More details about our learning and activities will be put on here very soon.

What we are doing in English:




Handwriting is always  a big focus as it is very important that we are able to form all our letters correctly, the right way round and of the correct size.



To help with your handwriting it would be very useful if you could practice writing the alphabet in both upper and lower case.

You could also practice putting a list of words into alphabetical order, including some that start with the same letter.




What we are doing in Maths:






Don't forget that you should be practicing the 2x, 5x and 10x tables and also thinking about the inverse division calculations. 






What we are doing in Spelling:


In spelling we use our Year 2 spelling books to practice different spelling rules.






Group Work in Spelling Sessions

What we are doing in PE:





Long sleeved top or t-shirt.

Long sleeved jumper - no hoodies as these can catch on the tree branches.

Long trousers.

Wellies or sturdy walking shoes. No trainers.


Even when the weather is warm and dry we still need to wear long sleeved tops or t-shirts, long sleeved jumpers or sweatshirts and long trousers. These protect our arms and legs from scratches and stings. 


 Forest School clothes should remain in school throughout the term, in a named bag that will hang on a peg. 

No Forest School clothes = no Forest School!

It is very important that you read to someone at home every day. As well as being able to read words we must make sure that we understand what we have read, so be sure to talk about your book and develop your comprehension skills. This is very important if you are going to become a good reader.  


If you need your book changed then remember to put it in the red box at the front of the class in the morning as the books are all changed at lunch time.


Don't forget that we are here to help you with your learning so if there is anything that you do not understand please come and ask us.
