Class 3 - Y2
Welcome to Class 3
Welcome to Class 3. The teaching team this year is Mr Cooper and Mrs Cooper (who will cover PPA every Tuesday afternoon) ably assisted by Mrs Fordham (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday morning) and Mrs Wood (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday). We are all very much looking forward to working with your child.
The Class 3 staff will ensure that all children are happy, develop a love of learning and allow children to be the best version of themselves.
This school year is when we see children become more independent and responsible for their learning, taking on more challenge and pushing themselves to achieve great things. They will build on the learning in Year 1, and each lesson will stretch and challenge each child in order to ignite their love of learning. Year 2 asks a lot of our 6 and 7 year olds and we work hard to ensure that this is done in a constructive and supportive way, in order for each child to achieve their full potential.
Within Year 2, the children will have a range of opportunities to explore, question and extend their learning in all subject areas. This year we will be developing a ‘Creative Curriculum’ where the children will learn about different topics in a cross-curricular way allowing the children to embark on their own learning journey.
Our expectations are for all children to take pride in the work that they produce and show how proud they are of their own personal achievements in all areas of school life. We also strive to generate a good home-school partnership and we will keep you up to date with some of the learning that is taking place in class.
Please have a look at the ‘End Of Year Expectations’ leaflets attached below to see what skills and knowledge children should have acquired by the end of each year group.

Homework Menu & Homework Books
Each half term, children are given a new ‘Homework Menu’ from which they can select a specific number of activities to complete from the different areas of learning.
They can present their work in their homework book by either drawing/writing directly onto the paper or by sticking in printed sheets or photographs. Homework books should be returned to school during the last week of each half term.
There is a lot of choice on each menu and we really hope that pupils have fun working on their chosen projects!

A Knowledge Organiser is a go-to document for a topic/unit of work: each one identifies the key information that children need to have learned by the end of a topic. It also acts as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
We have developed our own Knowledge Organisers to support the delivery of the curriculum, with each one starting with knowledge children should already know from previous learning. Each organiser also has a quiz to help children recall the knowledge and a list of technical vocabulary with definitions.
