In Class 2 we have Year 3 and Year 4 children.
Curriculum themes change each term, and we try to have as much fun as possible whilst achieving all our learning objectives. Please see the curriculum link below to find out more about Class 2 learning.
SPAG – Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
Children will take part in SPAG lessons which include learning spelling rules, different forms of punctuation, and grammar conventions. There will be a focus on sentence structure and use of the correct grammatical vocabulary, for example adjectives, articles and clauses. Spelling remains a priority and will include the Year 3/4 spelling list and patterns and rules to support accurate spelling. Much of this will be class based, with follow up activities which apply the words in contexts. Children are encouraged to check their work before handing it in – of course this applies to all their work!
Our reading books are organised into coloured bands. Each band includes books from different schemes to ensure the children can enjoy a rich variety of texts and a variety of genres. Children enjoy guided reading lessons weekly and will also read and respond to a variety of text in discussion and in written comprehensions to develop their understanding of different texts.
English lessons are enjoyable and interactive, with children participating in learning different genres often linked to the term’s theme. Children will become immersed in a genre to become familiar with it, and then learn skills such as text organisation, development of vocabulary and sentence structure, to enable the child to create their own independent writing. Guided reading, comprehensions and SPAG work are linked together.
Maths is taught daily with learning objectives linked to the National Curriculum for each year group. Learning is practical and interactive, with a focus on core skills, reasoning and problem solving. Children will develop skills in number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement and statistics. Children are encouraged to keep practising multiplication tables to 12x12.
