Rockingham (Yr 2)
Welcome to Rockingham Class
Rockingham Class is taught by Mrs Tharme. We are also really lucky to have Mrs Want (HLTA) with us for most of the week; she also teaches us Art/ DT on a Thursday afternoon.
Rockingham Class usually have PE on Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings so please make sure your PE Kits are in school on these days.
We are so excited to be welcoming children back into the classroom and to all be back together again to share our learning and have those all important class discussions.
This term we will be starting a new theme called 'Wings and Wonderful Things' we will be going up, up and away learning about the history of aviation, we will look at where the inspiration for flight stemmed from and what things were invented to allow humans to leave the ground. We will look at the difference between gliding and flying. This will lead us explore the first successful flight and discover why they were more successful then previous attempts. We will study the Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart as significant people that contributed to the success in aviation. You can find out more about our learning in Autumn Term 2 by viewing the Theme Web below. Our overview of the year's learning is shown in our Long Term Plan (below). Please also refer to the Knowledge Organisers which have been made available to support your child's learning (this is shared with you on Class Dojo).
