Welcome to Year 2/3!
Our Class Page
Welcome to the class page for Year 2/3! We are proud to be a class of polite, hard-working children who try our best in all aspects of school life.
Throughout this year, we will build on the experience, knowledge and skills we gained last year to secure the Key Stage 1 standards. Some of us will be building on these basic skills before beginning our Year 3 learning!
Please have a look around our class page to find out what we are learning about in each subject and see what we're getting up to!
What are we learning about this half term?
Here's what we'll be learning about in each subject this half term:
English – We will be reading different stories and using these to help us write a narrative, character description and letter.
Maths –The children will develop their number and place value knowledge by reading and writing numbers to one hundred and beyond. They will also begin adding and subtracting these numbers using written methods.
Science – Our Science lessons will be all about what animals need to survive and grow.
RE – Our topic of ‘Beginnings’ will explore the story of creation and how God is with us during all new beginnings in our lives. Our unit on 'Signs and Symbols' will focus on the Sacrament of Baptism.
Topic - Our topic lessons will focus on History this half term. We will learn about different monarchs throughout British history and use this knowledge to answer the question ...
Who was the most powerful monarch and why?
Please take a look at our 'Planning' page for more detail about what we will be learning in each subject this half term!
Your child will now bring a banded book home with them every day from school. They will also bring a Phonics book if they are still receiving Phonics support in school. Please read their book with them as often as you can and write how they've done in their reading record. Children who read three times a week are rewarded in school each Friday, and there is a prize once your child has read 30 times at home!
Here are some questions you could ask your child to check their understanding:
Where did ...?
When did ...?
Who did ... ?
Why was ... feeling ... ?
Why did ... happen?
Why did ... say ... ?
What happened when ...?
How does ... make you feel?
Maths homework is sent out on a Friday and should be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. Spellings are sent out on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday in school.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday for the Summer term. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit on these days, including appropriate clothing for outdoor lessons in colder weather. Long hair must be tied back and earrings must be removed or covered using plasters.
