Class 2

Welcome to Class 2.

We are a mixed year 1 and year 2 class. The class teacher is Mrs Middleton, ably assisted by Mrs Ward who has now successfully completed her teacher training! 

 

Reading

In class 2 we love to read lots of different books. When you read at home, make sure your parents sign in your home school diary so that you get stickers on your special bookmark on Fridays. When your bookmark is full, you get a treat in assembly. 

Remember you need your book bag in school every day!

PE

PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Make sure you remember your kit!

When it is cold don't forget your extra jumper!

Some Year 2 pupils have begun to learn to play the recorder. They have made a great start and have already performed at the Mother's Day service and at the Easter service. They are doing really well!

Summer Term

 

 

Our first topic is Habitats. We will be looking at different habitats from round the world and thinking about why different animals live in different habitats. Then we'll investigate some habitats around school.

Ideas for home follow up can be found here.

We had a fun afternoon finding out about worms.

We used sticks, stamping and recorder playing to charm worms from the school garden

and then made a wormery for them to live in.

 We discovered lots of facts about worms.

We used pastry to make bread stick worms and jelly to make wiggly strawberry worms.

     

Now we are worm experts.

 As part of our art work, we have all tried painting a self portrait. Don't they look amazing!

We used out symmetry skills to complete these portraits:

 What careful artists we have in class 2!

 

 

Ben came in and told us all about his saxophone. He played lots of different styles of music. We loved it!
