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.
Obviously, the children have missed a considerable amount of school so we will be easing them in to Year 2 gently.
Each week, we have a number of awards for children who work hard and are well-behaved which encourages them to work hard.
This term's work:
English - We will spend the first few weeks reading and writing about 'The way home for wolf' and then go on to the Funnybones books by Allan Ahlberg.
Maths reading and writing - We will spend lots of time cementing place value and simple additions and subtractions. We try to keep the lessons as practical as possible.
History - We will be learning all about Florence Nightingale and the Crimean War. The children love to dress up in old costumes in our role play hospital.
Geography - Our topic is 'Where we live' and the children will be reading and drawing maps and plans of the local area.
Science - Our topic is 'animals, growing and staying healthy'. We will look at how animals and humans change as they grow and what they need to keep healthy.
Art - We are going to learn about line and colour by looking at the works of Gaston Chaissac and Pablo Picasso. We will then create our own portraits based on paintings by these artists.
Music - we will continue to explore different musical genres and will be using body percussion to compose and perform a number of tunes.
