Dosbarth Onnen

We are Dosbarth Onnen.  We are years 2 and 3.  Our Teachers are Mrs Dunn and Mrs Smith and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Tamera Brooks and Miss Hazel Ogden.

Our autumn topic this year is the history of Caerwys. We will be looking at the symbols on the mayor’s chain of office to find out about different aspects of the town’s history. We will also look at different maps of Caerwys to see how it has changed over time.  In LLC we will be writing instructions and directions and we will link this to coding on the computers.

Our topic this spring is ‘Intrepid Explorers’. We will be reading the book ‘Shackleton’s Journey and getting into role as some of his crew to write diaries entries, telegraphs and letters. We be looking at some of the animals that Shackleton might have encountered on his journey and we will investigate what sort of material would have been best for keeping the crew warm.

Our summer topic this year is ‘To Infinity and Beyond’ and we will learn all about space and our solar system. The children will be finding out how to write non-chronological reports in LLC, and will then write their own about one of the planets. We will read and write poems about space and then they will write their own story based on the book ‘Toys in space’.

In science and technology will carry out lots of experiments to investigate forces and materials. We will look at Mars rovers and design our own, and we may even make our own working rockets!

 In expressive arts we will look at the planet suite by Holst. We will explore some of the instruments he wrote for and how he used them to create pieces of music with a different feel for each of the planets.
