Class 2 – Year 3 & Year 4

Class 2 – Year 3 & Year 4

Class 2 currently consists of 10 year 3/4 children. Much of the learning which takes place is linked to a central topic and children are encouraged to develop their skills of enquiry through hands on, practical learning experiences.

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit and reading book in school every day.

The whole class swims on Tuesday mornings during the Autumn & Spring terms.

Homework tasks

  • Find out what Michael Morpurgo has written ( he is a prolific author!) . Challenge yourself to read a range of his titles and make a list of those you have completed. Let’s see who in class 2 can read the most!
  • Design a leaflet instructing someone how to look after a pet.
  • Create a poster or make a video advising primary school children on how to use the internet safely.
  • Try to do at least 10,000 steps daily for a month. Keep a note of how many you do each day.
  • Prepare and cook a vegetarian/plant based meal for your family. Bring the recipe into school to share with the class. If we get enough we can make our own class recipe book!
  • Design a 20 minute daily  fitness plan for children to include a number of short activities ( like those you might do in circuit training). You could include star jumps, burpees, shuttle runs etc. You could present your ideas in a power point or video or take phots of someone in your family following the plan!
  • Find out which items in your home are magnetic and make a list. What do they contain that gives them this property? Can you find out?
  • Design a book ‘menu’ outlining your favourite books, short stories, poems, comics and picture books. We can laminate these and put them in our library.
  • Measure and calculate the area of rooms and items in your home. Remember, area is the width x length. What unit of measurement will you use?

Residential Visits

Class 2 residential provision has seen us use centres across the north-west.  We take part in a variety of activities such as dance, orienteering, archery and environmental studies.  The visits help the children develop their independence and teamwork skills.
