Welcome to Class 2.
Miss Beecher is the teacher in class two and working alongside her and the children is Mrs Sheppard and Mrs Crane. We have 30 wonderful children in year 2 at the moment, a class full of a wide variety of fantastic personalities, senses of humour but most of all positive attitudes and eagerness to learn.
We have PE on a Monday and a Tuesday afternoon. We are currently learning gymnastics and ball skills. Children need to have trainers for this please.
What do you want to be?
What a very ambitious bunch in year 2! You can be anything you want to be!
This half term our topic is Brilliant Britain! As part of this topic we will learn about the different countries of the United Kingdom and Britain, including work on maps, about landmarks, different languages, foods and events. We will have a more in depth focus on London as capital city and this links very well with our history work on the Queens. We will also study Remembrance Sunday and the significance of the poppy as a huge part of this.
Our writing is always based on a book, and this term will include books such as The Queens Hat, The Owl who was afraid of the dark and Little Red Reading Hood.
Much of our maths lessons will be spent consolidating and improving skills and understanding in place value and addition and subtraction
Today we were thinking about how much we love reading in class 2. How we find the strangest places to read, and love to build dens and read in nooks and crannies just like Little Red Reading Hood in our book.
