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 The Gingerbread Man. We have began by making our very own gingerbread men as part of our transition lesson. We will be writing instructions on how to make a gingerbread man and writing our own stories, with a few twists!






This half-term, we are focusing on Place Value and ongoing arithmetic skills. 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 seasonal changes.  



Our history topic for Autumn 1 is the 'The Great Fire of London'. The children will learn many facts about why the fire started and why is spread so quickly.
