We are a mixed Year 2 and Year 3 class and Mrs Thomas is our teacher. There are 24 children in our class and we work really hard and have lots of fun! Mrs Pinkerton and Miss Auty support work in Squirrels class during the week, helping groups of children with numeracy and literacy and working with individuals. Mrs Tickner teaches us Science and French on a Friday afternoon when she covers PPA for Mrs Thomas.
In the Autumn term our topic is Knights and Quests. We will be linking many of our subjects to our topic and our class reader - Tumbleweed by Dick King Smith - links in as well. In Literacy we will be reading and writing poems about dragons, adventure stories based on traditional tales, information texts linked to castles and letters / postcards. In Numeracy we will be learning about place value, performing mental and written addition and subtraction calculations, learning multiplication facts,money, time and also fractions. We are hoping to arrange a school visit to a castle in the second part of the autumn term. Please view our topic web for further information about our learning.
We will have PE on Monday (Action Ants - taster sessions in a range of sports) and Thursday (Fitness / Running and Ball Skills). Complete outdoor P.E. kit is required each week - white or yellow T-shirts, blue or black shorts, trainers and a tracksuit. Please ensure all clothes are named, long hair is tied back and earrings are removed or covered with tape.
We take a reading book home each night to read as often as possible - three times a week would be great! Please keep note of any reading done at home in the reading log. Additional homework will be timetabled as it is introduced during the term.
We hope you enjoy looking at our page and reading about what we have been up to!
