Class 2

Welcome to Class 2!
In Class 2 we currently have children from year 3 and 4. 
Every day will start with a Whole class reading session, supporting children with fluency and comprehension skills.  We are also focusing on spelling and our times tables this year, as well as explaining our Mathematical thinking.
This term in Class 2, our learning includes the Vikings in History and Classification in Science.  In English, we will be learning how to write newspaper reports based on our previous learning in History about the Ancient Egyptians.  In Maths, we are learning about perimeter.
Please see the attached curriculum plan to get a more detailed overview of what we are doing in class.
Homework will be sent home weekly - it will consist of a reading comprehension task linked to their current reading book.  There will also be weekly spellings linked to the spelling focus in class.  This will be followed by a weekly spelling test in school. We ask that you read with your child every night - being a keen and confident reader will have a huge impact on every aspect of their learning, so your support is much appreciated. We use "Vipers" to support reading in Class 2. Vipers stands for Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval, Summary. All of our questioning in class reading will be around these areas.
