Welcome to Class 2's page.
This year we are a class of 30 with a mix of year 1 and year 2 pupils.
Mrs Clarke (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) and Mrs Bearman (Friday) are the teachers for Class 2, supported by Mrs Hickford who is a HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant).
PE and Swimming
PE kits need to be in school for the whole week.
Each child should have a cup in school for water.
Swimming will be on a Friday afternoon whilst the weather remains fair.
Everything should be named please!
Reading is done as much as possible in school but does need to be daily at home. We want to encourage a love of reading for enjoyment so sharing books at home will help us to achieve this. Reading with and to your children makes such a difference.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday which will include 1 Maths and 1 English task, spellings to learn and times table to practice. It should then be handed in on a Wednesday.
Our topics for this year are:
Autumn Term- The Great Fire of London
History of Space
Spring Term- Let's go to China
Safari in Kenya
Summer Term- Kings and Queens
At the Seaside
Science topics this year:
Uses of everyday materials
Scientists and inventors
Living things and their habitat
Animals (including humans)
We have lots of things planned for the year ahead in Class 2 and we will share photos of our journey on this class page with you.
We recently visited the Sealife Centre in Southend, as part of our topic this term. We got to touch a starfish and we saw lots of fish, sharks and other sea creatures. Afterwards we went to the beach and paddled in the water.
