Welcome to Class 2 2017/18. The Class Teacher is Mrs Smith and there are currently 27 pupils in the class. This class is supported by Mrs Hird and Mrs Hannant.
Hello, my name is Mrs Smith. I have been teaching for twenty four years, seventeen of those years at Consett Junior School. I love reading and walking and often go walking in the Lake District. I have a touring caravan and love exploring the UK in my caravan during holiday time.
About Class 2
I am really looking forward to the new school year and getting to know all the new Year 3 children. There will be 27 children in Class 2 and I’m sure we will have a great year together. Mrs Hird will be working with us on Monday and Tuesdays and Mrs Hannant on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays. Mrs Leggett will teach the class on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon.
In Literacy this half term, we will be working from the books Gorilla and The Tunnel both written by Anthony Browne. We will be writing diary entries, non-chronological reports about gorillas and writing our own sequels and adventure stories.
In Numeracy this half term we will be concentrating on place value and the four number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
Our History topic this half term is Stone Age to Iron Age. Our art will be linked to this topic too. Children will have the opportunity to explore cave art and experiment using different tools to create their own cave art.
The children in Year 3 will be also be studying Animals including Humans in Science. In ICT they will learn how to stay safe when using the internet and in R.E they will be learning about the Hindu faith. Children will also start French lessons and go swimming on a Thursday as part of their P.E.
