Our PE day is Friday. Please make sure you are wearing trainers on this day.
We have a focused session on Reading, Writing and Maths each day. We also enjoy lots of opportunities to learn about Science, Computing, French, History, Geography, RE, Art, DT and Music each week.


Our Curriculum
At Wimboldsley Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes excellence. We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, through delivery a twenty first century education. A cross curricular approach to learning encourages the children to be independent, reflective learners and responsible citizens. We work closely with parents to support children’s learning.
Key Skills we develop in year 2 and 3 are:
English:
- To use conjunctions to join our ideas
- To use a range of fronted adverbials throughout our writing
- To use paragraphs, headings and subheadings to organise our work
- To learn to select appropriate grammar and vocabulary
- To describe settings, characters and atmosphere in narratives
- To assess and improve the effectiveness of our writing
Maths:
- To use formal methods to add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers
- To recall 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s.
- To recognise and find 1/2, 1/3, 2/3, 1/4 and 3/4 of any given number or shape
- To add and subtract money
Our Topic:
Please see our curriculum map at the bottom of the page for more information. 
It will be a busy and fun filled year of learning. 

How can I help and support my child at school?

Practical ideas you may wish to make use of:
Reading at home
•    Ask your child what they are reading and talk about their ideas: What is the ‘picture’ they have of particular characters? Are there people like that in your family or whānau? What do they want to find out from the book? What are the important messages? What do they think is going to happen next? What else do they need to know to understand the story or topic?
•    Talk about books on similar topics. This helps your child to pull together ideas from different places
•    Help your child to share their thinking. Get them to share opinions and talk about why they think that. 
Writing at home
•    Play with words. Thinking of interesting words and discussing new ones can help increase the words your child uses when they write – look words up in the dictionary 
•    Play word games and do puzzles together to help your child learn more about words and spelling
•    Talk about ideas and information they are going to write about. Talk about experiences, diagrams, graphs, pictures, photos and material that your child is planning to use for school work. Discussing the information and main ideas can help their planning for writing and their understanding, too.
•    Play with words. Thinking of interesting words and discussing new ones can help increase the words your child uses when they write
Maths at home
•    Find and read large numbers in your environment eg nineteen thousand, three hundred and twenty-three
•    Count forwards and backwards (starting with numbers like 10,098, 10,099, 10,100, 10,101 then back again)
•    work out patterns – make codes from numbers.
•    Chant times tables together
