Class 2

Welcome to Class 2!

We had a very busy Autumn Term, here are a few of the highlights!  We loved hatching the chicks in our classroom.

We learnt all about toys in the past, and had a super trip to Preston Park.

We carefully stitched our stockings to hang up for Father Christmas!

And of course we performed our fantastic Christmas Show - A Wriggly Nativity.

Spring 2018

We had a super Spring Term; with a visit from the animals, some amazing learning about habitats and working as a team.


This term we will be focussing on the journey from farm to food.  Our Science will look at plants and growing.  We will investigate machinery and farms from the past, and compare these to modern farms.  Each week the children will be cooking a dish for the class to sample!  They will explore where the ingredients originated from and how each part of the dish made it to our kitchen.

Dates for your Diary
Key dates and important information are always sent out via the school newsletter, but here are a few dates for the Summer Term.

Wednesday 20th June 3pm    Class Assembly
Tuesday 26th June 9.10am         Open Classroom    

Homework Arrangements
Reading is still incredibly important.  The children are becoming more independent and would benefit from questions and discussions about their reading books.  We will continue to send spellings home, and the words with a certain rule could be practised alongside the list of common exception words that the Year 2s need to learn.

We are also using Abacus maths games as homework.  
(If Internet access is difficult at home, provision can be made at school for these games to be completed.)
