Silver Birch Class - Year 2
Welcome to Class Silver Birch!
Our teacher is Ms Sumner who believes that children work best when they are happy, so she tries her hardest to make lessons interesting and fun! Mrs Perry is her TA and works every morning.
Each week, we have a number of awards for children who work hard and are well-behaved. We also have an 'incredible handwriting board' for children who are joining up their writing.
The Spring Term is when we really start to work hard after the excitement of Christmas!!
This term's work:
English - We start the term reading and writing some winter poems, followed by a couple of weeks looking at the book 'Snow Lambs' before we move onto Traditional Tales. We focus on The Three Little Pigs and read some different versions of it. We also make and perform a puppet show! Later in the term, we will do more information writing about an animal but, as of yet, we haven't decided which one!
Maths - We will continue to focus on addition and subtraction but will increasinly introduce fractions, division and other mathematical skills. We still try to keep the lessons as practical as possible.
History - We will be learning all about Victorian schools. The children love to dress up in old costumes and write on slate boards in our role play school.
Geography - Our topic is explorers and we will be 'exploring' Australia!
Computing - Our topic for term is Photography. We will be looking at what makes a good photo before taking and editing some of our own.After half term, we will be using the internet to research a topic.
Science - Our topic is 'materials' and we will be doing lots of practical investigative work around this topic. After half term we will be learning about habitats.
Art - We are going to look at and create some wonderful sculptures which I'm sure will be displayed with pride in all your lounges!!
Music - The children will start to learn to play the recorder.
RE - We will be learning about the Islam to start with and then the Christian festival of Easter.
