Class 2 - Mrs Harris
Welcome to the Class Two area. Keep checking back regularly to find out about all the exciting and interesting learning we have been getting up to!
Reminders: Spellings and Homework are given out on Friday and need to be returned before the next Friday. PE is on Thursday and Friday afternoons, please ensure children have kit (shorts, t-shirts, tracksuits/hats/gloves) for all weather conditions as it is rather unpredictable lately!
All Class Two children have a login and password for Sumdog, the school code is Bartoncofe . It is free to download on tablets or use on a desktop computer.
Our topic this term is the The Wild West and we have lots of exciting things planned: in English we are beginning by writing to Instruct - the children will be learning all about writing Recipes, some have already brought in their favourite recipes from home and we were lucky enough to sample of one of the children's recipes. The children will be trying out the recipes we write in school so watch out for some tasty treats coming home.
In maths Year 2 have been using their calculation skills in problem solving and reasoning whilst year 3 have been looking at using grid method of multiplication before moving onto the formal written method.
So far in Topic we have learnt how Christopher Columbus re-discovered America and how the Europeans settled and moved across the Prairie. We have even experienced what this journey would be like in our prairie schooner. We have located the Appalachian Mountains and will be exploring more of the places where the pioneers have settled.
