Birch Class (Year 1 & 2)

 

Welcome to Birch Class. We are a class of year 1 and year 2 children, who are taught by Mrs Harding.

 

This term, our topic is Noah’s Ark.  We will learn about the life of Noah, and his family.  In design technology, we will test materials to see which float and which sink before designing and making our own arks.  In science, we will think about the animals that entered the ark and what Noah would have done to meet their basic needs.  In history, we will learn about the life of someone else who was caught in a storm – Grace Darling.  We will learn about how she rescued passengers from a ship that had run aground on some rocks and what her life would have been like in Victorian times.

Useful Information
