You’ve arrived at 2M’s class page. Here, you can find out about our class and see photos of us enjoying our activities.
2M is made up of 25 very eager children, our teacher, Mrs MacDonald and our teaching assistant, Miss Mcloughlin. We love listening Mrs MacDonald, she teaches us so many subjects – we can’t wait to learn more, and if we ever need help, Miss Mcloughlin is always there to lend a hand.
Working hard is important in class 2M, so when we use our learning powers, we are rewarded with a special learning power sticker. We’re all great friends too and like to fill each other’s buckets – that means we’re kind to each other and help each other out when we need to. If someone’s on their own on the playground, we play with them. If someone has a problem, we try to solve it. If someone needs help, we help them. Filling buckets makes you feel great and puts you in the ‘Green Zone’, that means you’re ready to learn!
One of our favourite activities is reading to Miss Mcloughlin. We’re so proud when we move up a stage and can’t wait to share this with our friends and family.
Reading is so important, so we read every day. We use different techniques:
• shared reading – where we join Mrs MacDonald in reading stories, and she models reading strategies and skills.
• paired reading – where we read with a partner, and we help each other when we find parts tricky.
• echo reading – this helps us to become more fluent and expressive when we read. Mrs MacDonald reads a short piece of text, and we echo it back – it’s great fun!
Here are some great tips to help you read with us at home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6cIQGJjYR0
