Welcome to Willow Class
Willow class is made up of 30 children in year 2 and year 3. Miss Smith is our teacher and Mrs Wainwright is our TA. Miss Nurcombe has also joined the Willow team
In English we are continuing to use The Write Stuff. Our first unit is based on the book Stone Age boy. After our sentence stacking lessons children will do their own independent story writing. Our second unit this half term will be non-fiction (holiday brochure) based on Skara Brae.
Year 2 children will continue with daily Read Write Inc lessons, which will consist of speed sounds, practising story green words and speedy green words and red words (words that cannot be decoded). Children will read the story with a partner and on day 3 will answer questions about what they have read.
Year 3 children will be doing whole class reading, which focus on reading comprehension skills. The 6 comprehension skills are:-
- Making sense (inference)
- Word consciousness (vocabulary)
- Activating prior knowledge
