Treefrogs

WELCOME TO THE TREE FROGS CLASS PAGE!


15.06.14
This week, years 2, 3 and 4 were lucky enough to go to London to visit the aquarium! We all had a fantastic time and have come back enthusiastic and motivated to learn about the ocean creatures we saw! Thank you all for a lovely day.

This week the Tree Frogs class had the privilege of taking Trevor (Attendance Ted) back to their classroom because we were the class with the best attendance in the whole school! WELL DONE TREE FROGS! Just look at what a wonderful time he is having with all of our ocean creatures!

 

 

We are a class of year 2 and 3 children who just love to learn! This term, our topic is Oceans. We have already had a think about what we already know about this and what we would like to learn about, and the children have come up with some excellent questions! Jordan would like to know how many teeth a great white shark has, whilst Sam has asked whether fish sleep. These are just some of the questions we will be answering over the course of the term.

In literacy we will be hitting the water swimming by learning about quest stories. By the end of this three week unit, the children will be able to explain what a quest story is and  describe some of the features. They will be learning about past and present tense and will think carefully about the audience their own story is aimed at, sharing them with the younger classes. This half term we will also be learning about information texts, creating our own information pages on an ocean creature.

In maths we will be starting the term by revising counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s (as well as some more difficult numbers) before findind 1/2, 1/3 and 3/4 of numbers. We will also be learning about doubling and halving by partitioning and telling time to the earest 5 minutes. As part of our week in maths, the children also have a lesson of either mental maths or past SATs questions, which helps them identify exactly what a question is asking them to do. We use a TASC wheel during our problem solving lessons on Fridays as well, which also helps us develop our independent learning.

Our science topic for the next 5 weeks is Plants. We will be learning about the different parts of a plant, looking more closely at the roots and their functions. We will also be learning about the basics of photosynthesis and how soil and their nutrients help a plant to grow. 

Through all of these lovely subjects as well as the others – Art, Music, Geography, History, Spanish etc. will be the underlying topic of Oceans. The Tree Frogs will be learning about different sea creatures, including dolphins. They will also be looking at the difference between mammals and fish.

Keep your eyes peeled below for photos of our learning as well as topic webs, homework and our class newsletters.
