Cherry tree

Welcome to Cherry Class, Year 2!

Cherry Class: helping children blossom!

This Year the whole school has changed to class names based on trees that grown in our own school grounds. Look out for cherry trees in the field...

Welcome to the Cherry Class page. We hope you find the information useful and informative.

Cherry Class is the Year 2 class at Old Buckenham Primary School. We take pride in the positive learning environment in Cherry Class and work hard to provide a supportive classroom where every child can thrive. We look to build on the knowledge and skills children have learnt in the preceeding years and develop their understanding in our broad and balanced curriculum. 

The 'Old Buck Way':

Embedded within our school ethos is the mantra: 'Ready, Respectful and Safe'. These three words are taught throughout all parts of our curriculum and are at the heart of our whole school approach. Our children are becoming confident talking about  and understanding these words and often include them in their thinking in lessons.

Our Values:

At Old Buckenham, we also have five core values which we teach our children explicitly throughout our curriculum. 

These values are:

Respect                 Honesty                Communication              Teamwork              Resilience

Each week, we explicitly celebrate and promote one of our values in assembly as well as talking about and finding ways to model, consider, show and value these character traits.  

Our Curriculum:

At Old Buckenham, we understand that questioning and speculation are key learning skills and they sit at the heart of many of our subjects. There is lots of time and space to discuss learning in class, alongside offering many practical experiences and visual examples and models to support thinking. 

We follow the national curriculum and use some schemes to support consistency and quality of delivery, tailoring lessons to fit the needs of our class.

In our writing lessons we use The Write Stuff by Jane Considine to guide our teaching. This combines experience days, sentence stacking days and a clear independent writing sequence to enable children to extend their writing and continually improve.

In Maths we use White Rose Maths as a starting point. This teaches Maths topics in blocks throughout the year. We cover: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, shape, time, statistics, position and direction and measure.

Science: In science we aim to encourage children's sense of wonder and curiosity in the different strands of Science. We conduct experiments in all half terms and in every topic. Our topics are: Everyday materials, Living things, Habitats, Animals including humans and Plants.

Spring term:

Happy New Year, let's get started! This term we are writing reports about animals and narratives using the story Stardust by Jeanne Willis as an inspiration. We are also exploring mulitplication and division, and 2D and 3D shapes as well as learning about money.

In Science, we are learning about the needs and changes of animals including humans (following on from considering healthy eating in DT last term). We are exploring expressive art, learning about farming as an economica activity adn beginning to consider how and why some places are better suited to specific food production as a way into learning about the global climate and economy.

Home learning and how to help at home

The children have been given log in details for Boom Reader and Numbots, which will supplement Times Table Rockstars with games and challenge that focus on number, place value, addition and subtraction. The maths games use the same log in details as each other. Log in details are stuck inside home work folders.
