St James' Park
Welcome to Year 2 St James’ Park
I have chosen the name St James’ Park as this is where my brother is based in London. He is a Grenadier Guard!
Hello, I’m Miss Burmby and I am so excited to be St James’s class teacher this year. I cannot wait to start the learning journey with everybody. I have a passion for English and love books of any sort - One of my favorite book series is Harry Potter by J.K Rowling. In my spare time I love to go out with my friends and family whether that be to a concert or travelling to different places. I am looking forward to unlocking all of the children’s passions and helping them to reach their best potential.
In math’s this half term we will be exploring place value which focuses on children’s ability to read and understand numbers to 100. They will use their growing understanding of place value to help them sort, compare and order numbers. The children will revise their understanding of different representations of numbers and also meet other representations for the first time.
This project teaches children about the basic needs of humans for survival, including the importance of exercise, nutrition and good hygiene. They learn how human offspring grow and change over time into adulthood.
In the wider curriculum we are focusing on 'Movers and Shakers' in history where will learn about different significant people who have shaped our lives. We will also be learning how to use a map and compass in geography. In DT, we will be experimenting with basic sewing techniques and begin to look at some simple recipes for baking. In Art, the children will be exploring basic colour theory by studying the colour wheel and colour mixing. It includes an exploration of primary and secondary colours and how artists use colour in their artwork.
