Welcome to Year 2/3R!
Please find below some useful class information.
In our class we have a mixture of Year 2 and 3 children. We are looking forward to an exciting year, in which we are going to be learning about a variety of wonderful topics. The children have created their own class rules and will continue to show the Fruits of the Spirit as they learn and play with their classmates.
This is a very special year for our Year 3 children as many of them will be making their First Holy Communion and receiving Christ for the very first time. Preparations for First Holy Communion will start around January time.
During the summer term our Year 2 children will be doing the national tests in Reading and Maths: Key Stage One SATs. Our aim is to make sure that every child gets the support that they need and that everyone enjoys a wide and varied curriculum.
In Year 2 and 3, our children are learning to become more independent in their learning. To do this, we expect them to try their best in every lesson and always have the right equipment for their learning. We love to share our pupils’ achievements with you at home through our weekly certificates, stickers, house points, Marvellous Me, Twitter and our school website.
PE takes place every Monday however, sessions may sometimes change, so please ensure that PE kits are left in school and taken home at the end of every half-term. This term’s topic is African dancing with Dance Fuzion with a performance for parents next half-term.
Homework is given out on a Wednesday and must be handed in by the following Tuesday at the latest. Our homework focuses on 3 priorities: reading, spelling (including spellings/handwriting) and times tables.
Reading – Please aim to listen to your child read every night – this can really have a big impact on their reading development! We currently have a rewards system in place where we are encouraging the children to obtain three ticks per week. Once this has been achieved, the children’s names are placed in a raffle to win a prize which is drawn each half-term.
Times Tables and Spellings – Children will be given relevant homework for their current year group. Children are also given a new KIRFs sheet each half term which shows parents the basic maths skills that their child needs to practise at home.
Please note children will be tested on their weekly spellings on Tuesdays and their times tables on Wednesdays. There is also a weekly prize for the best piece of handwriting homework!
If there is anything else you would like to know, please do not hesitate to ask.
