Welcome to Birch Class!
Birch Class is a class of 28, Year 2 children. Our teachers are Mrs. Lambert and Mrs. Bosomworth. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Capper. We can't wait to get started on our new topic when we shall be learning all about...
We will start off this topic by learning some local and national geography. We will initially focus on the differences between our towns and our countryside. We will further develop our ability to use globes and atlases and explore google Earth. We will extend this to look study China and the wonderful traditions of the country. We will use Chinese art to inspire us to develop our skills as artists and designers.
As scientists we will build on our current understanding of animals including humans, deepening our understanding of life cycles. We will learn how to keep ourselves healthy and make links to online safety.
As a class, we will explore and celebrate our uniqueness, working together to ensure school is a happy and safe place for all of us to be. We will continue to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, learning from stories from the Bible involving friendship and forgiveness in particular. We will unpick what it means to serve one another in love and how this will impact our lives.
