Welcome to Class 2
Hello and welcome to Class 2!
We are a mixed ability class with 9 pupils in Years 3 and 4. Our classroom teacher is Mr Darkins and we are fortunate enough to be supported by Miss Sage and Mr Glover.
We believe that the most important element to our class is that everyone is safe and feels safe, and that we are feeling happy, this will allow us to learn in the best possible way.
We do this by accepting each other and everybody's feelings, supporting each other and celebrating our own and others achievements.

What we will be learning!
In Maths this half term we will be learning about number sense, using tangible objects to add, subtract and estimate numbers. We will work cooperatively to solve problems.
In English this half term we will be learning about recounts and reflecting on our experiences over this past year as well as reading stories with historical settings.
The foundation subjects will center around the recent issues affecting our lives, including Covid 19 and the Black Lives Matter movement. Through these topics we will be exploring; cities of the UK, how past events affect our lives and we will be performing in PE, Music and Art and feedback to our classmates.
Reading books will be given out each week in class. This will include one reading book/ magazine of your child's choice and one that will challenge their reading skills. Your child will spend time in class during the week, reading to develop their skills and help them make progress.
It would be really beneficial and fun for your child to read with an adult 3 times per week at home. This can be recorded in your child's reading diary.
At Hope School we set homework challenges each half term, these are shared at the beginning of the term but it is up to each child which activities are completed and in what order. These are designed to be experiences rather than formal written work. You may even come up with your own learning experiences!
Homework is important to ensure your child reaches their full potential and help to engage them in learning when outside of school. I would love to receive one piece of work from home per week and we can celebrate this and display it in school.
