year 2/3 (goodall class)
Dr Jane Goodall (our class scientist)
Our class motto
Welcome to Goodall Class, home of Year 2 and 3. This year, our class teacher is Miss Hopper and working with her are Mrs Allington and Miss Brooks. Miss Brooks teaches the class on a Thursday afternoon; she also teaches a group of Year 3 pupils for the morning on Tuesday-Thursdays and teaches all of Year 3 for Science. Here you'll find all the information you need to help your child progress, supporting the learning that goes on in class and also giving you a window into what they are doing through the year.
We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk shows lots of good choices for individual year groups. Each half-term, we teach English through a text-led approach, using a quality story to spark children's imagination. We follow the 'The Write Stuff' by Jane Considine, and build up our knowledge throughout the half term before applying the skills we have learned in a piece of independent writing. Our text for this half term is 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka.
As a school, we follow the White Rose Maths schemes of learning; please find the overview for the year below, it will help you support your child in knowing what concepts are taught throughout the year.
Here you'll find knowledge organisers, designed to help with vocabulary and concepts, related to our topics through the term.
