Our Topic Learning
(Creation and Conservation)
 
 

Our topic this term is ‘Creation and Conservation’. During this topic, we will explore plants and their parts, microhabitats and conserving environments.

We are very excited to start the topic with a trip to the Eden Project where we will receive a workshop from the experts! Class 2 will be using ‘House Held up by Trees’ by Ted Kooser for our Literacy learning where we will be learning how to identify the theme of a text. Furthermore, Class 2 will produce descriptive non-fiction writing such as newspaper reports and life-cycles of plants. This topic lends itself to some great outdoor learning and we aim to make the most of the opportunities to learn practically from the resources we have around us.
We will then look at the topic of conservation. To inspire our learning we will look at a video explaining deforestation and the harm this can have on the wildlife that inhabits these forests. 

 
 
 
 

Our Learning this week

(Week Ending 15/3/19)

This week, we have been continuing to look at The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. We used our imagination to write a plan for our own mystery story. We have also been creating our own captions for a selection of the pictures. I've been impressed by how creative the children have been this week.

In Maths, our learning has been focused on length and measurement. Year 2s have been measuring items around the classroom and using cm and m to do this. Year 3s have been learning to convert mm to cm and cm to mm.  We have been able to use Maths practically this week and understand real life situations where you would use this.

It was Science week this week and we have been demonstrating different experiments. The children looked at 3 different experiments and learned about the chemical reactions that took place. Towards the end of the week, we wrote up instructions to create one of the experiments.

Class 2 have Spelling and Maths homework this week to extend and consolidate their learning. It isn't meant to be onerous and shouldn't take more than 10 minutes per day. If anyone from Class 2 is having difficulty with their homework, I can go through it with them on Thursday lunchtimes.

Have a lovely weekend.
