Welcome to Cedar Class
We are in Year 2 and Year 3.
Mrs Bakary is our class teacher and Mrs Dixon and Mrs Statton are our teaching assistants.
Mrs Skinner teaches in Cedar Class every Tuesday morning.
This year in Cedar Class we have 26 amazing children who all love to learn, investigate and explore.
In Cedar Class, we pride ourselves on having a positive attitude to work. We enjoy making our brains stronger by challenging ourselves.
We celebrate success and know that when something is hard, we just haven't mastered it "yet"!
We are all good friends in Cedar Class. We love to play games and enjoy using our school environment to have fun together.
We respect, tolerate and listen to each other so our classroom is a happy place to learn.
What are we learning at the moment?
In the Autumn term, our class topic will be 'WHO IS THE GREATEST EXPLORER?'

This year, the children in Year 2 will be starting 'Read, Write, Inc'. This is an exciting new scheme where we will learn phonics, reading and writing.
The children in Year 3 will be starting a new scheme called 'The Write Stuff' where they will develop their writing skills through the study of key texts, using the 'writing rainbow'. children will be using the FANTASTICS, GRAMMARISTICS and BOOMTASTICS to improve their sentences and build paragraphs of engaging text.
You can see some of our 'Write Stuff' work below.
Our first unit will be on 'The Owl Who Is Afraid Of The Dark.'
In Maths we will continue to follow the White Rose scheme of learning.
Our first unit will be 'Place Value' where we will learn about 2 and 3 digit numbers using concrete apparatus, pictorial representations and abstract problems. We will also be ordering and comparing numbers and learning to place them on a number line.
You can see the children enjoying our fun maths learning activities below.
We like to learn in a bright and stimulating environment where we celebrate learning. Here are some of the displays in our classroom.
