Greenfield Primary School

Welcome to Greenfield Primary School.

Maple - Year 2 / Year 3


Welcome to Year 2/3 Maple. My name is Mrs Dench and I am your child’s class teacher. 


This year we will be teaching your  children reach their full potential and make good progress across all areas of the curriculum. We are looking forward to working with your child and helping them on their journey throughout this academic year.


In Year 2/3, we will be focusing on supporting all pupils to become confident readers. We will be participating in guided reading and whole class reading four times each week. We will also be ensuring all pupils have access to a wide and varied curriculum - which is lots of fun! For the year 2 pupils it is an important year because pupils take part in their end of Key Stage statutory assessments and begin their transition into Key Stage 2.

Homework will be set using Spelling Shed and a paper writing and maths task will be sent home each week. We are also encouraging Year 2 pupils to practise their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables and Year 3s to practise their 3, 4 and 8 times tables. 


It is very important for you to help and support your child at home with learning these spellings and times tables. Reading at home should be done daily and parents should comment in their child’s reading record so we know they have read at home. Reading books should be in school every day for individual reading with the class teacher and other adults within the school.  Reading books will be changed every Thursday and sent out again on Friday. From time to time, pupils may need to keep a book for longer to help them to consolidate their reading or comprehension skills.



Throughout the year we aim to keep parents, carers and families well informed as to what we have been up to. You can follow our journey on our class webpage which will update every half term.
