Class 2 - The Sunflowers 2017 - 2018

Mr Dunstan

I am the Class 2 teacher. I love teaching English as I used to be a newspaper reporter. Big football fan - Barrow AFC season ticket holder and Evertonian.

Welcome to Class Two

Class Two is a mixture of Year 3 and 4 children 

Along with the rest of the school we teach in a fun, creative, cross curricular way through a range of topics over the year covering aspects of the National Curriculum for both year groups. We have a two year rolling programme which ensures all children cover all aspects of the NC over their two years in the class.

Summer term - 2018

Topic - we are exploring this term's topic as a whole school. Linked to our new arrival (the green house), we're asking 'Is the Earth a green...house?'

History/Geography - we are exploring lots of geographical and historical issues linked to the environment, such as climate change, energy use, water usage, waste and recyling all around the world.

Science - as well as exploring the science attached to our topic, we will be growing our own vegetables and learning what a plant needs to grow.

PE - as well as weekly multi-skills sessions with Mr Singletion (on a Wednesday), we will be doing cricket and athletics.

Music - we will continue to follow the Charanga music programme, and rehersing the Tempest songs for the Big Sing festival.

Computing - we will be sharpening our computer coding skills.

DT - later in the term, we will be exploring food from around the globe and how to prepare it.

Reading: Children are heard reading twice a week - either 1:1 with their own book or as part of a guided reading session.  They also experience weekly reading comprehension activities.

Handwriting: We follow a handwriting programme called Letter-Join.  This is an online interactive resource which aids the practice of cursive handwriting and uses interactive animations to demonstrate joined up letter formation.
