Welcome to Rabbit Class. We are a mixed-age cross key-stage class of Year 2 and 3. We have a busy term ahead and we are looking forward to having fun and learning lots.
Mrs Cryer teaches Rabbit Class all week. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Nelson.
Ready to Learn
Please come to school ready to learn. Bring your school bag containing your reading book and reading diary every day.
You will need a waterproof coat everyday, whatever the forecast! Please bring a sun hat and sun cream on sunny days, and a warm hat and gloves on cold days. Children need to be equipped to learn outside whatever the weather.
You will need a drink in a refillable bottle, and you can bring a snack for playtime if you wish.
You will need to wear your PE kit on PE days (Thursday).
Our Learning This Term
Our whole class reading this half term is based around the book That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown by Cressida Cowell. Our writing work is non-fiction and will be inspired by In My Heart - A Book of Feelings. Our class novel is Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell. In maths we will begin by learning about place value and number before working on addition and subtraction. Before Christmas we will move onto multiplication and division. In Science we will be learning about Sound. Our Geography theme is Whatever the Weather and we will be investigating all kinds of weather phenomenon and how the weather affects us. In Art we will be looking at drawing and sculpture. PSHE this half term is focussed on relationships and bullying.
The children have Whole Class Reading sessions three times a week. This session aims to improve the children’s comprehension. The children also have a reading book to take home, of their own choice from our class library. It is important that children read at home daily.
All children are encouraged to go on TT Rock Stars and Numbots at home and practise their Rapid Recall facts. These facts really need to be instantly recalled, to support the mathematics in class.
If you have any questions or queries please pop in to see us, ring or email the school office.
