Emerald City Class Information:
What are knowledge organisers?
A knowledge organiser is a set of key facts or information that pupils need to know and be able to recall in order to master a unit or topic. Typically, an organiser fits onto one page of A4, which helps children to visualise the layout of the page, which in turn helps them to memorise the information better.
How will a knowledge organiser help my child?
Knowledge organisers will be made available at the start of each unit to help them remember what they are learning and to help them to see the bigger learning journey in their subjects. Instead of forgetting previous learning, children will continually revisit and retrieve prior learning from their memories.
How will a knowledge organiser help me to help my child?
Many parents/carers ask us how they can help to support their children at home.
The knowledge organisers have all the key information and subject vocabulary you will need to will help you do this easily.
Below are the knowledge organisers for each term.
If you have any questions about the content of the knowledge organisers we will be happy to help.
Science and D&T Week
In science and D&T week, we investigated what type of bird feeder and bird food, birds would be most attracted to.
The history of bird feeding dates back to 1845, when Henry David Thoreau fed birds at Walden Pond in America.
We researched different styles of milk carton bird feeders and designed and made our own.
Between the two Year 2 classes, we made two extra natural looking bird feeders, and two brightly coloured ones to use in our investigation.
We thought about how to make the investigation fair, and agreed we needed to add the same amount of food to each bird feeder and hang them in the same place. We put 40gms of raisins into one of each type of bird feeder and 40gms of bird seed into the other two.
We will observe what happens over time and record observations and data.
