Term 3 & 4 – Pick Your Queen Knowledge Organiser & Curriculum Information

Term 3 – It has been nonstop this term in Class 2. We have been dancing, running and developing our cricket skills with Sophie Luff from Chance to Shine. We were very lucky to have a taster session with Mr Millard who helped us improve our jumping and sprinting skills.

Mrs Lovely has been working with us to create boats that we were able to race. We had to think carefully about what would ensure our boats were the fastest and how their design might slow them down. We were able to make our boats move by giving them wheels.

Check out below our class story map of Cinderella. We are going to be using this to help us write our own Rags to Riches story set in Elizabethan England. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth used to throw her shoes when she was angry?

We are very excited about performing at the Playhouse next term and cannot wait for you to come and watch our Olympic themed dance!

Term 1 & 2 – Dabaso  Knowledge Organiser & Curriculum Information

Term 2 – We have been very creative this term, learning lots of new skills and techniques. Mrs Lewington helped us master our sawing skills whilst Miss Momber taught us how to make clay pots.

In geography we have continued to develop our knowledge of the world and how the location of countries can affect its climate. We have been making aerial view maps of Dabaso using the photos that were taken during Hutton’s visit in November. We started by thinking of how we would draw the classroom and the different shapes things are.

National Maths Day was a real success and we loved seeing everyone’s costumes. We have been working hard on our addition and subtraction skills this term and can now add two digit numbers together. Lots of us have been          awarded our 20 Club certificates for knowing our number bonds to 10 and 20 and are now applying this knowledge in different ways.

Thank you to everyone who came and watched our Nativity performance, we had so much fun rehearsing and getting ready. I bet you didn’t know we could be so loud!

Term 1 – We started Term 1 heading out on safari to look for animals that call Africa their home. Although we found some animals we expected to see, we also learnt that some of our favourite farm animals can also be found in Africa.

Through comparing the weather in England to the weather in Kenya, we have added the words, changeable, temperate and equator to our vocabulary. We’re now on our way to understanding how the countries location effects its landscape and how that effects peoples way of life.

In maths this term we have been looking at all the different ways we can represent and partition numbers. We have had a lot of fun exploring new practical maths resources and creating our own robots on Numbots.

Outdoor Learning in September means we have been able to explore lots of different autumnal changes. We have watched the colours of leaves change week by week and study how the wildlife we find up on the school field changes.

Make sure you ask us to sing our continents and oceans songs to you, they are very catchy!
