WELCOME BACK! Please bring in summer reading challenge certificates for us to celebrate.

Year 2 - Silver Birch Class

What a busy start to the term already! This week Silver Birch visited our local library, whilst we were there we had an introduction into how to find books and how to take books out. We also had the head librarian read us a story. We will be returning to the library on Wednesday 27th September, so don't forget to bring your books back so we can return them and take new ones out.

It was Roahl Dahl day on Wednesday and we had great fun creating our own Roahl Dahl characters, giving them new names and describing them. Take a look at some of our work below.

Welcome to Silver Birch - Term 1

 

It's been a great start to the term, the transition from Year 1 to Year 2 has been smooth, and everyone is settling in nicely. We've been working hard on our handwriting and we're already seeing a huge improvement.

 

Remember to keep your PE kit in school ready for our lesson on Wednesday. And keep practising your spellings and maths on Spellodrome and Mathletics.

Silver Birch 2016-2017

Remember ... we have a year 2 page that gives more details about the KS1 SATs and how we are helping your child prepare for them (just click on the link below)

Silver Birch are working exceedingly hard this term. We're looking forward to finishing our SATS in time for a well earned break over the May half term. As well as doing our SATS we're also training hard for Sports Day! Remember children will need to wear a t-shirt the colour of their house.

We've had a fantastic start to Term 5 with all the children returning refreshed and enthused ready to learn. Our topic; Christopher Columbus has already had us taking about whether the earth really is flat or spherical and whether we would have gone exploring with him.

Everyone is feeling rather shattered after a busy day. We enjoyed sharing all our learning with everyone during our class assembly (we hope you enjoyed it too!) We also enjoyed learning some new space moves during the Dance Festival at Devizes School. smiley

We had a fabulous time at Pizza Express. Not only did we learn about food hygiene, we also learnt how to make fresh pizza!

Silver Birch have had a great start to the term! All the children have settled in and are working hard. It's a big leap from Year 1 to Year 2 and I've been so impressed with all the children's positive approach to the new year.

 

Our topic focus for Term 1 has been 'Living Things', we've created our own brilliant animal stories and fact files. We have explored the importance of keeping healthy through food, exercise and sleep, and have learnt lots of super songs about food!

 

We had a great trip to Pizza Express on Thursday 20th October. We learnt all about food hygiene and how to make pizza. Take a look at our pictures below.
