Miss Robinson's Class

 

Welcome to Class 2CR's page. We are a lovely group of Year 3 children who love to learn new things! Our class teacher is Miss Robinson. Mr Komoroczky and Miss Dowland help us with our learning in Maths and English each morning. We are also really lucky to have Music lessons with Miss Csiba, RE lessons with Mr Hicklin 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 Topic homework on a Thursday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday. For spellings, please refer to your child's pupil planner.

 

PE:

Please have PE kits in school throughout the week. It is also very important that all belongings are clearly named.

 

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. 

 

Learning in Term 1 - The Anglo-Saxons and The Scots

We will be linking our learning this term with the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots. In History, we will be researching this period of time and way of life. This knowledge will support the work we complete in English sessions.  In DT, we will be developing our sewing and textile skills to create a functional bag that is linked to our topic.

Welcome back, and well done to all the children on a super start to the year. We will be linking our learning this term with our Geography work on Europe.

In English we are going to be studying the work of a famous author - here's a clue...he would have been 100 years old last month. As we come to the end of the term, we will be making items to sell at the annual Christmas Fair. Another busy term ahead!

We are very lucky to be launching our topic with a visit from an expert on WWII from Thorpe Camp. Following this, we will be basing our English work on a historical text set during WWII. In addition, we will be creating moving propaganda posters in Design and Technology. In Science sessions, we will be developing our understanding of Forces. As always, a fun-filled term awaits.

We will be using our learning from Geography sessions to support our work in English. In addition, we will be working in small groups to create 3D "working" models of a volcano in Art lessons. Alongside this, we will be learning about Electricity in our Science lessons. Of course, as the end of the year draws near, we will be enjoying Sports Day and thinking towards our move into Year 4. Another busy, jam-packed term awaits!
