In Edison Class (Year 2), we learn through a range of exciting projects. This term Edison Class’ new topic will be ‘Dragons, Knights and Castles. The classroom features a dragon, a reading castle and a ‘Meet the Author’ information area where we will be writing biographies about Penny Parker Klostermann; the Author of ‘There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight.’ It’s going to be an amazing term and the children will have an enjoyable experience throughout the term.
We teach literacy through our project, with many opportunities for the children to write, developing their grammar, punctuation and spelling. Our book units this term link closely the theme for the term including George and the Dragon, There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight and The Paper Bag Princess.
Mathematics is also linked to our project and covers the curriculum for Year 2. We teach maths in practical and exciting ways to deepen the children's understanding. We also use of the Forest School area for maths, literacy and project. Outside learning gives children a fantastic opportunity to explore and be creative and so where possible, reading and creating stories will take place within the Forest School.
