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 Kay. 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 alongside parents at home.

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

Later in the year, we start to learn times tables, so you could support this at home by counting in 2, 3, 5, and 10’s and by beginning to ask times tables questions within these. There are lots of other wonderful online resources you can use to support learning at home including Purple Mash and Oxford Owl.


Old Moor RSPB

We had a wonderful trip to Old Moor RSB reserve linked to our Science Topic.  We enjoyed pond dipping and bird spotting.  The RSPB staff said that our class were 'honestly one of the most well behaved and polite group of children we’ve had'  Mrs Felton was very proud.

Mini Mudder

We all had a brilliant time braving the challenge of the Mini Mudder and got thoroughly muddy and wet in the process. A great time was had by everyone!

Dance! Dance! Dance!

Sunshine Sunflowers

Class 2 have earned 100 gems in the jar and as such, they had a treat of a crafting morning.  Photo for the class page. They made sunflowers.

Julia Ogden

We really enjoyed working with the artist, Julia Ogden to create some pictures of the African savannah.  We used acrylics and different printing techniques to create different textures for our landscapes.  We then carefully drew and cut out animal silhouettes to add to our pictures to create some wonderful final pieces.
