Class 2

Gladstone Pottery School Trip

Welcome to Class 2!

Miss Brock and Mrs Davies welcome all pupils, parents and carers to our class page. The learning for each half-term will be updated, along with photos of our work. PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays, and children need to come to school wearing the correct kit.



This half term, we will be completing work around the story of Sleeping Beauty. We have began by learning the poem / song 'There once was a princess long ago' and this has led us onto the story of Sleeping Beauty'.






This half-term, we are focusing on fractions and ongoing arithmetic skills. Year 1 will focus on halves and quarters and year 2 will extend to thirds and changing the numerator. TT Rockstars practise will be highly beneficial so children become confident with multiplication and division. 

Some useful websites for you to use at home are: hit the button.



We are studying the topic 'seasons' and looking at the changes that take place. We will focus on how the seasons change the world around, especially focussing on the weather. During this topic we will visit the local common to observe the first signs of spring. 



Our geography topic is 'Wonderful weather' which will closely link to the science topic this half term. We will observe changes in the weather and temperatures. We will think about how the weather changes our lifestyles and that of animals too.



We will be starting 'word processing' which will begin the children typing words and sentences on Microsoft Word.


DT - Dips and Dippers

This topic explores a variety of dips and dippers from all over the world. We will start the topic off by researching and tasting these. We will then learn about a balanced lifestyle by categorising food. Finally, we will get the chance to create a dip of our own!




Britain - what does it mean to be British?



Mrs Mountford will be teaching RE once a week. This half term the class will be learning the Easter story and thinking about why this is such an important time for Christians. 



Our PE days are Wednesdays with Miss Brock and Thursday with Bee Active coaches. This half term we are focusing on dance with Miss Brock and bat and balls skills with Mr Paul, our fantastic Bee Active Coach!




We are looking at a range of music through the Charranga Music Scheme. This half term we are learning the song 'Get into the Groove' which we will perform with instruments to finish the topic.
