Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is an exciting transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2. We aim to make this move as smooth as possible. The children will now be enjoying the larger Key Stage 2 part of the playground, no longer being the oldest in the playground, but the youngest. The afternoon playtime will be phased out after Autumn half term, though the daily mile continues. The children also really enjoy the responsibility of bringing in their own plain(ish) pencil case and taking responsibility for their own pens, pencils, glue etc. The children no-longer receive free fruit, so if your child wishes to have some fruit during morning break time, please send them in with, for example, an apple or small pot of grapes. A carton of milk is still available to purchase for morning break time (see the office for details). Just a reminder that school dinners are only free in Key Stage 1. As last year, link books and water bottles need to come in every day and we always appreciate boxes of tissues. We look forward to working closely with you and your child over the next year.
Summer 2 Term Learning - 2021
Year 2 have had an amazing second half to their summer term. They have produced wonderful, creative and inspiring calligram poems, please have a look at the pictures. We then moved on to our non-fiction text all about… Sharks!! Did you know that a Great White Shark can grow up to 6 foot long? Well we decided to measure out 6 foot in the hall and create our own Great White Shark of Year 2!
Year 2 have been buzzing explorers and dived straight into the forest expedition with Ms McBride. They discovered dinosaurs, fossils and even fairies! Year 2 are enjoying their Explorer History Unit and have learnt about what makes a person significant. They have learnt about the adventures of Ibu Battuta, Matthew Henson, Felicity Aston and Neil Armstrong. In their last lesson they will be comparing a modern day explorer to a past explorer and thinking of ways we can honour and remember them.
I hope you are enjoying watching our sunflowers grow! We will be sending them home soon.
Fr. Dominic came to visit us and told us all about St. Joseph and his importance to our faith. The home learning that has been produced is so wonderful and a credit to all the children. This has been passed up to Mrs Tucker to form a display.
In maths we are becoming masters at using column method for our addition and have moved onto subtraction methods for subtraction two-digit numbers and we are amazing at crossing that ten barrier!
