Class 2 Autumn Term Curriculum Map 2019

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back! We also welcome our Year 3 children into Class 2 in the main building each afternoon. Here is an overview of the exciting themes and topics to be covered this Autumn Term. We will be building on children’s prior knowledge of the Stone Age, including a visit to our friends at Melsonby for a Stone Age Day. Our learning across the curriculum will be linked to our topic where appropriate. A topic homework grid is attached and will be available online. We look forward to your children’s ever-inspiring homework enhancing our classroom soon! Thank you in advance for the help you provide with this.
