Class 2 - The Sunflowers 2018 - 2019


Welcome to Class Two

Class Two is a mixture of Year 2, 3 and 4 children 

We like to explore subjects through our topic work, where possible. This means we have a rich curriculum that makes links across the subjects when appropriate.  We have a two year rolling programme which ensures all children cover all aspects of the NC over their two years in the class.

Spring - 2019

Topic - have you ever wondered about our local area and where we live? How it has changed over time and the way the area has adapted.

History/Geography - we will be exploring the changing power of monarchs and how King John's Magna Carta influenced the Cartmel area. We will be locating counties and cites in the United Kingdom using our map skills.

RE - We are looking at the way Jesus's teachings and the messages were taught to the people. The second part of the term we are looking Easter and how Christians prepare for Lent.

Science - We are learning about living things and their habitats.

PE - In the spring term we are covering hockey and tennis with Westmorland FA. In our PE sesions we will be looking at gymnastic and different dance routines.

Music - we will continue to follow the Music Express music programme

Computing - we will be exploring online safety and data handling.

DT - we are learning to make wooden frames, using a range of resources.

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.

Times tables: we love using Times Tables Rockstars in Class 2! It's a fun, interactive way of learning times tables using an online game - use your school login to have a go!
