Silkstone Primary School

A School with Soul


Welcome to Class Two 

Welcome to Class 2

In Class 2, the children will be working with Miss Felton and Mrs Cale. Our priorities are for your child to feel happy, safe and secure in order to help them make the most of their learning.

Please help us to develop your child’s independence, by allowing them to come into the cloakroom on their own each morning and get themselves organised.

To help your child with their learning, it is really important that you hear them read at least three times a week at home and support them in learning their spellings each week too. Children need to bring books in to change on a Monday. I will also be uploading homework onto seesaw each week, for children to do with parents at home.

Our PE sessions for this half term will be on a Monday and Tuesday, so please make sure your child brings their PE kit on these days.

We will also be using TTRockstars and Purple Mash, alongside seesaw, to support learning both at home and at school.

We are artists:

We used natural materials to create our own 'stick people'. 

We are Artists

We worked in pairs in our art lesson to create work called "Roots and Shoots". We used different materials to create our designs.

RSPB Old Moor

We spent a wonderful day at RSPB Old Moor as scientists exploring the natural world.  We found lots of different creatures when pond dipping and identified them using a key.  We enjoyed bird spotting in the hide and watching the birds on the ponds.  

World Book Day

We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite story characters and immersing ourselves in reading on World Book Day.


We brought in 10 small items from home and had to sketch them carefully with pencils and pens in our sketch book.  We shared our results with Year 5, who gave us some constructive feedback.


We enjoyed our first gymnastics lesson, developing our balancing skills.

Victorian Kitchen

We had an online visit from the Victorian Cook at Cannon Hall.  She told us all about her life in Victorian times and then showed us how to make sugar mice.  We were really pleased with our results and think they look too cute to eat.
