Year 2/ Year 3 Class


Teacher: Miss Thomas

Teaching assistants: Mrs Simpson, Mr Crippin


This term we will be starting with the story ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker which is a wordless story.  The children will be using the story to write an adventure story based on ‘Journey’ using the language of Berlie Doherty and also include a new setting route to lead from one place to another.  Later on in the term, we will focus on a non fiction text called ‘Zeraffa Giraffa’ by Diane Hoffmeyer.  Here the children will be planning and writing a persuasive guide for visiting Zeraffa at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris as well as writing the guide as above including a section of a researched Paris landmark.  As this is the final term, the children will be consolidating all work focussed on throughout the year and showing confidence and good retrieval skills on what they have been taught.


To start the term, the children will continue with ‘Fractions’  We will move onto ‘Mass and Capacity’ and also ’Money, and ’Time.’  The children will continue to work on their Times Tables using TTRS and will be able to access work to support tasks in class through Maths Shed and 1 Minute Maths.  As with the rest of the year, the children should be practising their times tables regularly using TTRS at home as they are encouraged to do so in school.  Their TTRS knowledge will be invaluable when the children learn about Fractions.


Our focus for Science will be ‘Animals, including humans and Plants’.  Children identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers, explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant, investigate the way in which water is transported within plants, explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.  They will identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food; they get nutrition from what they eat and identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement.


Our History focus will be on The Vikings where the children will be finding out about What should we remember the Vikings for – raiders or peace-loving settlers? Within Geography, the children will be learning about Where does our food come from?
