Welcome to Class 2's webpage.
Here, you will be able to find out more about what goes on in Class 2 including any important news.
You will also be able to have a look at some of the things we have been learning about.
We test spellings on Fridays.
All children have mathletics logins and these can be found inside the front of your child's reading record.
Y2s have TT Rockstars logins and these can also be found inside the front of your child's reading record.
We test KIRFs for Y1s at the end of the week and scores will be sent home by Friday.
Reading books will get changed on Mondays if your child has read their book.
Please make a note in your child's reading record to let us know that your child has finished their book so it can be changed.
We are encouraging a 'reading for pleasure' mindset in school. To help achieve this, please read with your child as much as possible. Having a routine and making reading a pleasure rather than a chore will go a long way!
Our maths learning journey
Below you can find what we will be learning about in maths and when. Please use this information to help supportyour child's learning at home.
You can help support your child's learning by:
- encouraging them to go on mathletics
- practising KIRFs
- practising TT Rockstars
- playing maths games such as those on https://www.topmarks.co.uk/
- playing board games
- practising arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division)
- helping to measure out ingredients when cooking
- spotting different 2D and 3D shapes when out and about
- handling and using coins and notes
- talking about the time
These are just some suggestions but they can go a long way in helping your child understand, progress and appreciate the real-life applications of maths.
Below are examples of how to use the empty number line for addition and subtraction. There is also an example of how to divide by sharing.
A HUGE well done to Class 2 for taking part in Sport Relief 2020. All week long, we took part in daily sport challenges and all of the children participated eagerly. Take a look at us having fun completing our Daily Mile challenge on Wednesday 11th March. There were certainly some tired children once we got back to the classroom!
On Friday 13th March, we brought in all of our sponsorship forms for completing our 'Tom Daley challenges.' Together as a school, we raised more than £1200! What a fantastic effort from everyone involved! Everyone should be very proud of themselves for helping to raise such a phonemenal amount that will help people around the UK and the world.
On Wednesday 18th March, we had a Jewish visitor come to talk to KS1 about the Jewish faith. We learned about the Jewish festival of Passover, why Jewish people celebrate it and what they do during this festival. All of the children were intrigued to listen to the story of Moses and we loved learning about the seder plate.
World Book Day
Thank you to all of the children who brought in their 'Book in a box'. There were some very creative designs and clearly a lot of thought and effort had gone into them. Well done Class 2!
We also looked at all of the 'shelfies' that were brought into school by the children. We had great fun trying to work out everyone's shelves. Everyone even had a go at trying to work out all of the teacher's shelves!
Well done Class 2 on participating so enthusiastically during World Book Day. Roll on next year and keep reading!
On Friday 6th March, all of Class 2 had a fabulous afternoon helping to develop the Spiritual Garden. Everyone worked brilliantly as part of a team and even the weather was smiling down on us. It was wonderful to see the children working so well together, persevering and showing some resilience outside of the classroom. Well done Class 2! We can't wait for the next time we are helping out - 27th March.
We were lucky enough to have a skipping coach come and show us lots of different skipping techniques. We are looking forward to practising them more in preparation for our competition later in the year!
Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to watch our class worship. We loved sharing some of our learning with you. We hoped you enjoyed it!
