Year 2 - France
Welcome to France class. We are in Year 2 and our teacher is Miss Robertson. Mr Rackham and Miss Maxam are our Teaching Assistants.
This week we had a Science cafe. Our topic in science this half term is Plants and we have been learning all about the different parts of a plant and what these parts do. We have also been looking at non-fiction books in English and some of the features of non-fiction writing. We had great fun making our own plants and labelling them with some features of non-fiction writing.
We have started our creative writing sessions so, on a Friday, we have put on some classical music and write. These books are for us to write about anything we want! I asked the children why they liked their creative writing time and they said ...
If you have been in and around school recently you may have seen these wheels displayed around our class rooms. We are using a new assessment program called
Balance. This is the Balance wheel.
The children and staff have been using the Balance wheel to assess how well they are doing with their learning. It can be used at the start of lesson so the children can show where they feel they currently are with a topic and again at the end so they can see how far they have progressed with their learning. The adults working with the children are also able to use the wheel to show where they think the children are.
