Class 2

Mrs Hart welcomes you to Class 2!

In our amazing class, we have children from years 2 and 3. During the week in class 2 we are joined by our teaching assistant Miss Parker.


The expectation for homework in Class 2 is that your child reads to an adult five times a week and records this in their Reading Log. Spelling homework is to practice spelling games on Spelling Frame, sometimes words are set to practice at other times please practice common exception words. Maths homework is to practice number facts using Numbots and Timestables Rock Stars. Log in details for all sites are in the front of your child's Reading Log. A creative challenge is set at the beginning of each term, details can be found on the Class Curriculum Map (which can be found at the bottom of this page along with the Knowledge Organiser). This term's challenge is to research prehistoric food and draw or make a Stone Age feast!

Class Information

Within the class, there is a strong emphasis on improving independence along with the importance of working and learning together. Throughout the year we will develop our key learning behaviours and growth mindset. This term we are learning all about the Christian value of respect, what it means to receive it and how to show it in return. We believe it is important to be a friend, be responsible, be respectful and to be our best in everything that we try and do. We will work hard to develop a love of reading – both for pleasure and for knowledge as well as improving our understanding of the other core subjects such as writing and maths. We are constantly looking for and finding links in our learning to build on our knowledge and understanding, during interesting and engaging topics. We enjoy a challenge and always try our best to meet it. Most importantly we love learning and being creative, we look forward to sharing our amazing work with you.

Summer Term

The sun is out and we've taken our learning outside!

Spring Term 

This Spring term in Class 2 we have been very busy. In maths the children have been working on multiplication and division using partitioning methods as a strategy. We have also learned about statistics and the properties of shapes.

The children were inspired by the naughty monkeys in our Talk for writing story Monkey See, Monkey Do! and they have produced some amazing writing. I hope you enjoyed reading them on our open afternoon last week.

In Geography and History this term we have been studying Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution and how it changed the world. The children were inspired by Darwin’s love of collecting items and have created their own museum of natural objects and enjoyed discussing what Darwin might have discovered from our collection.

As scientists we have investigated Light and shadows and enjoyed creating shadow puppet theatres.

In Art and DT we have made pots and designed a fashion item in the style of Clarice Cliff.

Finally, as musicians the children joined a Samba band and learned all about rhythmic patterns, tempo, beat and dynamics.

Autumn Term

Class 2 got off to an amazing start to the year with their learning. We have completed scientific investigations into the best use of materials by creating mirrors and designing a new bed for Mrs Hart's puppy. In History we have been learning all about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we are really excited about our trip to Bristol after half term! In Forest School the children have been building dens and learning how to stay safe in the outdoors and in RE we made delicious Challah bread to help us think about how Jewish people celebrate time with their family at Shabbat and what the Torah means to them.
