Working together to be the best we can be!
We are in Year 2 and Year 3.
Mrs Bakary is our class teacher and Mrs Dixon and Mrs Lukins are our teaching assistants.
This year in Cedar Class we have 27 amazing children who all love to learn, investigate and explore.
In Cedar Class, we pride ourselves on having a positive attitude to work. We enjoy making our brains stronger by challenging ourselves. We celebrate success and know that when something is hard, we just haven't mastered it "yet"!
We are all good friends in Cedar Class. We love to play games and enjoy using the inspired playground and adventure playground to have fun together . We respect, tolerate and listen to each other so our classroom is a happy place to learn.
What are we learning at the moment?
This term, our topic is WW2. We have loved learning about how the war started, what happened on the home front and how the Battle of Britain was fought. We know all about rationing, evacuation and how people had to 'make do and mend'. We are making Blitz pictures, WW2 posters and will even be making model Spitfire planes!
We loved reading 'The Lion And The Unicorn' - a story about a WW2 evacuee. We have written our own versions of the story and are also pretending to be an evacuee writing letters home. Here you can see us ordering stories and summarising what we know about the characters.
In Maths, we have been improving our understanding of place value, including representing numbers in different ways and using the terms 'greater than' and 'less than'. We have also been using apparatus and drawings to help us to add and subtract. Here you can see some of the ways we calculate.
In Science, we have been learning about light and dark. We have learnt about light sources and have investigated how reflective different materials are. We are good at posing questions and making predictions. Here you can see us learning about reflection by using mirrors to write messages and follow trails.
We like to learn in a bright and stimulating environment where we celebrate learning. Here are some of the displays in our classroom.
