Robins

Welcome to Robins Class page

One thing you need to know about Robins is...we always try our best, we are hard working, polite and kind to others.

 

 

 

 

 

                                         

 

 

 

This term is all about Growing! We will be looking at life cycles and plants in Science, which will feature heavily in all aspects of our learning- especially Literacy.

 

We will be planting in our garden outside the classrooms to make our Wildlife Garden look beautiful ready for Spring and Summer.

 

Please keep an eye out on the weather as it is very changeable at the moment. We think that hats, suncream and a coat are necessary to cover all bases.

 

YOUR SUPPORT WILL BOOST THEIR SUCCESSES

The children work so hard in school but to give them the best start to Year 3, they need to also practise certain skills at home:

English

  • Reading regularly at home with a grown-up (to build fluency and stamina).
  • Talking with a grown-up about their understanding of what they have read (to build understanding)
  • Learning how to spell all of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words off by heart (makes it much easier to write fluently AND improves their writing level).

DON'T FORGET -  you can log on to Active Learn to access the Bug Club books.

                       -  I can give you a list of good questions to ask children when reading.

                       - I can give you a list of of the common exception words.

 

Maths

  • Number pairs to 10, 20 and 100  (such as 4/6,   14/6,  40/60)
  • Learning times tables off by heart - at least 2s, 5s and 10s, but any more will be a bonus!

BOTH of these will make calculation in Year 3 much easier and quicker because it will be one less thing to think about.

DON'T FORGET -     You can go on My Maths AND TT Rockstars to practise at home.  

                            -     If you would like to know about the written methods we learn in Yr 2, I'm happy to show 

                                   you.
