Class 2 is children in Year 3 and Year 4. The class teacher is Ben Rix with support from Emma Miller and Paola Giuffrida.
On a Tuesday afternoon, Class 2 have Ukulele and French with Madame Smith.
On a Friday afternoon, we go to the village hall for PE lessons taught by Arena and will be focussing on basketball. This term they will be doing our Misty Mountain Project (see overview below) which will involve writing a diary entry about a boat trip down a river.
Please ensure your child brings their named PE kit (t-shirt, shorts or jogging bottoms, spare socks and trainers) to school each Friday.
In the Misty Mountain, Winding River project, your child will learn about the characteristics and physical processes of rivers, including how they shape the landscape over time, their significance around the world and the impact of flooding. They will learn how to use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and a key to locate and plot geographical places and features on a map, as well as how contour lines are used to show the topography of an area. They will have the opportunity to learn about the stages of the water cycle and about mountains and their different formations, studying mountain ranges in the United Kingdom and around the world. They will also learn about habitats and how human and natural influences can have an impact on the environment.
