This term our class topic is: Lights, Camera, Action! We will be using Disney Pixar short films to engage the children. Using these films as a stimulus, we will take part in a number of learning opportunities. These opportunities will include, making our own film trailers, creating stop-motion animations, writing codes for devices and activities based on the story lines of each film. As always, 'Pupil Voice' sessions will be used to explore where the children want to take their learning. Pupil voice will be further utilised in our weekly 'Pupil Voice' sessions, where children will choose their independent tasks (Missions) for the following week.
Your child's reading book will be changed on a Monday (and Friday on request). Its is very important that the children are reading to an adult every night. Please bring reading books and reading records in every Monday.
Every Wednesday Year 2/3 have an outdoor learning afternoon. We can be found exploring local woods, streams and undergrowth. We will be out in all weathers, so please make sure your child has appropriate clothing and wellies. The 'September Pack' will include a blanket consent form for these visits. Please make sure you complete and return it.
PE takes place on a Friday! Please provide your child with PE kit and trainers for this day.
