Welcome to Class 2

Our teachers are Mr Whipps and Mrs Lake. Mrs Dungey helps each day. This is where you get to find out all about what we are learning. 

Our topic this this term has the title “What have the Romans done for us?” The children are going to try and find the answer through their investigations and learning. 


Home learning WB: 13th July 

Good morning Class 2! I hope you've had a fun weekend with this amazing weather. It's our last full week before the summer holidays and then we will see you all back in school in September. We are so excited to have our Darite family back together under one roof, we have missed you a lot! What are you most looking forward to? 

Our home learning tasks are attached below. As always try your hardest and if you find anything difficult let us know and we will try and help you. 

In English this week you are writing a message in a bottle. There isn't a reading comprehension task this week, please could you write about a story or book you have read (or had read to you) during lockdown. What did you like about it? Did it have any surprises? Would you recommend it? Who do you think would like to read it? You could even redesign the book cover!

This week in Year 3 we are focusing on capacity and charts. The link to the videos is here.

In Year 4 the focus is on symmetry and the link is here.

Have a great week and don't forget to send us pictures of what you get up to!

Attached below are the home learning tasks for this week. Try to do as much as you can but if you find something tricky take a break or move onto the next task.

Home Learning WB 15th June 

Good morning Class 2! I hope you've had a good weekend.

It's been great to hear about all of the things you have been doing at home. Please keep sending in any topic work linked to The Romans, we love seeing what you have been up to. 


The English writing task is attached below. We would love to see pictures of your tiny books, perhaps we could create our own mini library when you come back to school. 
The reading comprehension task is below as are the spellings. Why not practise your spellings by testing your parents? (sorry mums and dads!)


This week in maths Year 3 continue to work with fractions and Year 4 continue with decimals. The lessons for Year 3 are here and for Year 4 here

As always only do as much as you can and make sure your biggest focus is on yourself. If you need any help with anything please get in touch.

We miss you all a lot!

Home Learning WB: 8th June 2020 

Good morning Class 2, I hope you are all well and looking after yourselves and your families. With the weather being a bit coller this weekend I've been busy painting my hallway - we would love to hear what you've been up to! 
This week's home learning is attached below, if there is anything you are unsure of please get in touch. Remember it's not quite the same as being at school so if you find something tricky don't be afraid to move on. When we come back to school there will be lots of time to catch up with things we couldn't do at home! The important thing is to keep yourselves safe and happy - do as much as you can but don't let it upset you!

This week we are looking at equivalent fractions in Year 3 and decimals in Year 4. The video links are below so they should help you. If you are keen to do some extra maths then you can practise your times tables. 

Below are the spellings and reading comprehension tasks, Remember that there are three levels for the reading comprehension - try to do the one you would normally attempt in school. The writing task is also attached below, we would love to see some of your writing and add it to this blog.
I know lots of you like to do the Summer Reading Challenge with the Library Service, this year it will be a little bit different. To register follow this link 

Have a great week!

Home Learning 

Home Learning WB 2nd June

Welcome back! I hope you've had a lovely half term, we've enjoyed seeing all the photos of your adventures and activities. 

The home learning for this week is attached below. As always please feel free to complete as much or as little of the work as you can. Regular reading is the best way you can support your child at home along with practising time tables using TT Rockstars or any other fun activities. 
There is no need to print resources, discussion around the questions and writing on paper are equally fine. 

The maths this week uses White Rose again. The video links are again on the website to help with the worksheets. The worksheets act as a great visual and can be explain well using practical items. 

This week's spellings are attached below. We usually test these once a week but the most important thing is that the children can spell the words when writing. A good activity to encourage this is to ask the children to write a sentence including one of the spellings. 

The reading comprehension tasks and the writing task for this week will be uploaded later once I have resolved some technical issues!

If I can be of help in any way please let me know and I will do my best. Keep safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
