Welcome to Junior 2! In our class, we have children from Year 3 and Year 4. We spend our mornings working on Maths and English and our afternoons are spent learning all about our topics. For Maths and English, Year 3 children are taught by Miss Spencer and Year 4 children by Miss Taylor. We also have Miss Rawsthorne, who is our teaching assistant. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Children require an outdoor PE kit (tracksuit, trainers) for this and twice a year will need an indoor kit (shorts, t-shirt and pumps). Parents will be notified of when children need their indoor kit but it is a great idea to have both in school.
The children are encouraged to read for pleasure so choose their own reading books. We ask for children to read every night with an adult and for reading records to be signed and dated. The children are also given weekly spelling lists, which should be practised daily too. We complete activities in school to support children with their spellings and often provide them with top tips. Children will be given spellings on a Monday and tested on these on the Friday. Children are given home learning on a Friday and this is due in the following Wednesday. Details of home learning is always included in our weekly newsletter.
Don’t forget to take a look at our ‘See-Saw’ app to see the type of work and activities taking place in class. We also keep parents up to date with class news and life through our weekly newsletter. These can be accessed using the links at the bottom of this page.
