Welcome to Robins Class! (Unit 2) 2023-2024

We have year 2, year 3 and year 4 children in this class.  Mrs. S Barnett  is the Robins class teacher and is well supported by Mrs J Birdsall, Miss Z Manning and Miss L Broadley. We are in the bright and newly refurbished classroom upstairs, above the hall. 


PE is on Tuesdays and is taught by Mrs Aspinall. Homework is set on Fridays and is due in the following Thursday, ready to be marked and new work to be sent on the Friday. 


Reading books are sent home daily with their reading diary. We expect that the children read 3-4 times a week at least when at home, even if it is only a couple of pages! Please sign and date when your child has read in their reading diary and please send the books and diaries to school every day with your child. 


Autumn 2 - Brilliant Britain

The children will be learning about all things British this half term. In Geography, they will be looking at maps of the UK and the surrounding seas, the UK and Europe, compass points (4 point for Y2 and 8 point for y3/4)  and describing where towns, cities and famous British landmarks are in relation to each other. They will also be looking at the capital cities of the four countries along with many other famous landmarks and tourist destinations throughout the UK. The children will also have the opportunities to learn about British customs and traditions of Bonfire night, Remembrance Day, St Andrew's Day and Advent/Christmas. They will also be learning about the patron saint of each country and their celebration days, each country's flag and about their local foods and traditions. This unit has a geography focus with many of the History/RE and British Values being taught in other areas of the curriculum. 

 There will be examples of work and photos to follow in the coming weeks so please keep a look out for our fabulous work. Please see below for an overview of the children's learning for this half term and for the yearly overview. 

Thank you!
