Welcome to Falcons Class!
Our class is a mixed Year 2 and 3 class. The teachers are Miss Farinacci and Mrs Lewis and the teaching assistant is Mrs Roy. Mrs Howard runs interventions for our class.
All children are expected to read at least 3 times a week and have this recorded by an adult in their reading diary. The reading diaries are then checked weekly and if your child has read 3 times or more at home they will receive an effort stamp and a sticker. For children to be independent and succeed in learning, reading is key. With this in mind, we would like all children to develop a love for reading. We have a class story that we share daily, every child has chosen a library book to share with you and we would really like to hear about other opportunities they have had to read, e.g. reading a notice board, newsletter, researching the topic using a book or the internet. Please log this in the reading diary.
The children have been given a set of spellings to learn and practise at home. It is really important that they can read all of these words as well as learn to spell them. The children are being taught different ways to practise the spellings and we will have a spelling quiz on a Monday. In order for children to remain confident and accurate at phonics to read and spell, they can go onto the following website:
Times tables are essential to all the maths learnt, from fractions, to measure and much more!
Year 2 – 2, 3, 5, 10
Year 3 – 3, 6, 4, 8, 7
The children need to know each set of times tables off by heart and be able to answer verbal and written times table questions, e.g. 5 x 4 = 2 x 6 = 9 x 10= 10 x 9=
This website offers maths games that cover all the different units within maths.
PE kits needs to be worn to school on Wednesdays and Fridays and include suitable footwear for sport. Please could you make sure that all uniform is clearly named, all jewellery needs to be removed and earrings taped for PE and long hair must be tied up at all times.
Looking forward to a lovely year!
