Class 2

Welcome to Class 2.

We are a mixed year 1 and year 2 class. The class teacher is Mrs Middleton. Mrs Ward is also teaching the children this term as she continues on her teacher training. 

Welcome to our new class members. We are sure you will soon settle in and enjoys learning lots of new things. The new Year 2s are looking forward to their new challenges and responsibilities as the older children. 

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.

PE

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

Y2 children will be swimming on Tuesday mornings. Some children will start lessons immediately and some will begin in November.                                                                           

Autumn Term

Our first science topic is Animals and Me. We are enjoying sorting animals into different groups and learning about amphibians, reptiles and mammals.

Now we are experts at finding carnivores, herbivores and omnivores!

Here are some ideas for following up our topic at home.

 Portraits

 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!

 

Our new topic is called Fire! Fire! and is all about famous events in the past. We started with the Gunpowder plot and then thought about why we have Remembrance Day. 

Ideas for follow up at home are here.
