Welcome to Cuckoo Class!
In Y2, we are a friendly, caring class, who are keen to welcome new learners and make them feel at home in our classroom. We enjoy working and playing together and you will often find us learning together outside. Cuckoos are curious learners who like to find out about the world in which we live and generate questions for our projects. We like being active learners by exploring new ideas and shared experiences. At the moment we are interested in the flags of all the countries that are represented by members of our class.
We love listening to stories of all kinds and are keen to choose books from the class library to share at home.Our class project books are already well thumbed!
Our teacher is Miss Gascoigne, who loves investigative learning and good quality picture books.
Miss Gascoigne has a degree in English Literature and a P.G.C.E from Bangor University. She has taught in London, Paris and Eton as well as several schools in Oxfordshire. She has taught all ages from Nursery to Year Seven and has coordinated a wide range of subjects across the curriculum. She enjoys reading stories aloud more than just about anything else! She is very happy to be teaching full time in Year Two.
United, Autumn 1
Our first project of the year will focus on Geography, RE and PHSE. In Geography we will be looking at the countries that make up the United Kingdom. We will learn about the flags, capital cities and some important landmarks for each country. We will then place the United Kingdom within its continent and identify and recall all the other continents of the world. Moving on, we will locate the oceans of the world on maps and atlases and think about which countries they are near. In PHSE we will be looking at Rights and Responsibilities with regard to how we as global citizens need to care for our environment. The emphasis will be on the problem of plastic pollution in our seas and oceans.
Below are the books we will be using as part of our project work. There are also some links that you might want to investigate.
