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 Giants! We will be reading fairy tales, focusing on Jack and the Beanstalk and Jim and the Beanstalk. We will be planting seeds and bulbs and learning what they need to grow. We will photograph and measure them, every week. In computing, we will take photographs and learning how to use editing software. We will use our photographs of our plants to make a short time lapse film. We will learn about two giants from the world of art – Monet and Van Gogh. We will learn about their lives and study their art work. We will try and replicate their artwork, using collage.
As a class, we will be performing poetry at the Colsterworth Festival. We will also be visiting Belton Garden Centre, to learn more about growing plants, and Belton Gardens, to look for signs of spring.
PE Days: Monday and Thursday.
Swimming: Friday morning.
Reading: Children read individually at least twice a week as well as guided reading sessions. Please write in your child’s diary so that we can see that they have read. Thank you.

If you have any questions, please do come and see us.
