Miss Robinson's Class

 

Welcome to Class 2CR's page. We are a lovely group of Year 2 and 3 children who love to learn new things! Our class teacher is Miss Robinson. Mrs Chapman, Mrs Darby, Miss Dowland, Mrs Evans and Mrs Green help us with our learning in Maths and English each day. We are also really lucky to have Music lessons with Miss Csiba and Spanish lessons with Mrs Lauder.

 

General Information:

Reading:

We are able to change our reading book whenever we have finished reading it. We note down the page numbers we have read and ask an adult from home to sign the relevant part in our reading diaries. Miss Robinson will collect our reading diaries on a Monday morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed at least 3 times a week. It is important to bring our book bags to school everyday for letters and other important information.

 

Homework:

We are given Maths homework from our individual Maths set teachers every Tuesday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday to be marked. Miss Robinson will also send our English homework out on a Thursday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.

 

Spellings:

Spellings for each week are in the children's planners. Each week the children should practise at home 4 times, there is space for this in the planner. However, if spellings are completed in another manner (iPads, notebooks etc.) please indicate how many times they have done this and ensure that you sign the spelling page in the planner.

 

PE:

Please have PE kits in school throughout the week. It is also very important that all belongings are clearly named. If children are wearing earrings, ensure that they are able to remove them for PE or provide tape for them to be covered up to meet health and safety recommendations. Long hair should be tied up for PE.

 

Staying healthy:

It is important to bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with fresh water. In addition, children can bring a healthy snack for break time. These snacks should meet the agreed list: fruit, vegetables, cheese or yoghurt.

Learning in Term 1 - The Romans

We will be linking our learning this term with the Romans. In History, we will be researching this period of time and way of life.

Learning in Term 3 - Ancient Greece

Firstly, Happy New Year! I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable Christmas break. At the beginning of this term, the whole school is taking part in an international week. Each class will be exploring a different country in the world, focussing on the geography and artwork of their chosen location. At the end of the project, classes will share their learning with each other. Following this, we will move onto our termly topic work - Ancient Greece. In History, we will be researching this period of time and learning about a range of aspects of the Ancient Greek lifestyle and culture. In English we will be linking our writing to the Ancient Greeks - specifically finding out about mythical figures and creatures popular at the time.

Learning in Term 4 - Ancient Greece...continued!

I hope you have all had a restful half-term break. This term we are continuing to explore Ancient Greece. We will be building on our history lessons from Term 3, particularly focusing on how the Ancient Greeks have shaped the modern world. In our English sessions, we will be exploring the theme of Teamwork - linking this with further stories from Ancient Greece.

 

As a school, along with the rest of the country, we will be celebrating World Book Day and World Maths Day during this term. I am particularly looking forward to sharing our favourite books together and seeing some fabulous costumes on the 1st of March.

Learning in Term 5 - 'Dragonology'.

Firstly, I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable Easter break. Unbelievably, we are heading into the Summer Term - typically our busiest time of the year - and have plenty of exciting activities to fit into the weeks ahead. This term, we will be becoming Dragonologists in our English work. The children will be exploring a range of texts to inspire their own writing linked with this theme. In addition, in our Art lessons we will developing our collage skills to create interesting (and possibly ferocious!) dragon-themed artwork. Alongside this, in our Geography sessions, we will be finding out about the UK - deepening our understanding of countries, counties and cities within the United Kingdom.
