Rabbit Year 2/3
Teachers: Miss Goddard (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) and Mrs Sage (Monday and Wednesday)
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Hooley and Mrs Armitrano
Autumn Term 1
In English, we are going to be doing fiction writing based on the narrative, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Roald Dahl is also our class author so we will be reading lots of his books throughout the year. We have a range of his books in our class book corner that the children can read and borrow.
In Maths, the children will be learning about and revising place value.
Year 2 children will be working with numbers to 100 with Miss Goddard. With Mrs Sage, the children will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and symmetry.
Year 3 children will be working with numbers to 1000.
Please see the Knowledge Organisers below to find out more about what each year group will be learning in Science, Geography, History and Art.
Here are the questions we will be considering in PSHE this year in Year 3. Firstly we will be looking at relationships-
What is my role in helping my school be a place where we can learn happily and safely? How can we build relationships in our class and how does this benefit me? What does it feel like to be new or to start something new? How can I help children and adults feel welcome in school? What helps me manage a new situation or learn something new? Who are the different people in my network who I can ask for help?
And then moving on to build on work in year 2 about our emotions.
Why is it important to accept and feel proud of who we are? What does the word ‘unique’ mean and what do I feel proud of about myself? Why is mental wellbeing as important as physical wellbeing? How can I communicate my emotions? Can I recognise some simple ways to manage difficult emotions? What does it mean when someone says I am “over reacting” and how do I show understanding towards myself and others? How do my actions and feelings affect the way I and others feel? How do I care for other people’s feelings? Who can I talk to about the way I feel? How can I disagree without being disagreeable?
Year 2: Wednesday and Friday
Year 3: Thursday and Friday
Your child will be expected to read at least 4 times a week at home. These reads should be recorded in their reading diary and brought into school on a Monday morning. Each week, if your child completes the four reads, they will move up the planets, earning at rocket reader certificate once they reach the sun.
Your child can change their reading book as they need to. All levelled books are within the classroom, so the children can do this as they arrive in the morning.
Please read at least four times a week.
Please learn multiplication and division facts for times tables that they are currently working on. The children will be doing a 5 minute weekly challenge where they will be expected to beat their score each week.
