This half term there is so much to look forward to.   In Science we will be learning about Living Things and their Habitats, exploring  the different habitats we in our school environment as well and comparing these to other places.   This will include finding out how animals get their food and how animals are best suited to their habitat.  

Our Geography Lessons will be all about Sri Lanka, exploring and comparing  a different part of the world is always so interesting to do, including the climate, pass times, food, clothing, animals and so much more.  Our Art lessons will be learning about sculpture and landscapes, we will visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park as part of this and consider sculpture in our environment.

In Pe will will continue to learn and improve our ball skills and how we can use these in striking and fielding games like cricket and rounders too.

We will continue to learn more notes on our recorders and interpret and evaluate music within the Friendship unit  of our music lessons.

In RE our learning will be centered around How we care for others in the world and why.  



We are developing a real love for reading in class 2 this half term.  children are improving their reading skills all of the time and are loving reading a wider variety of books.   Our class story is The Last Bear by Hannah Gold, we were not sure if we would like it but tried just a few chapters to see and we were gripped straight away.

Learning at home

Reading at home is always a very positive thing to do for the children.   Children can read the books sent home or anything they wish.  this will always improve their skills and fluency too.

Children can also access websites and games we use in class such as...

Last Half Term

WoW!  What a busy half term we had, securing more learning in maths around subtraction and multiplication also.  We spent much of our writing time on the book The Lost Thing, an incredible story of friendship and support, producing some very thoughtful and careful writing in class 2. 

Our Trip to Yorkshire Wildlife park was spectacular, it was like the animals knew we were coming and some of them put on their best shows for us, the polar bears were super playful, throwing balls into the water and jumping after them, Simba the lion was very vocal and so was his mate Julie who were both pacing and letting us see their beauty.  The giraffes seemed to be the favorite of the day, creating amazing memories for us with their antics.

We spent a lot of time in our art lessons mark making with different tools and thinking about how we can use this in further art work, then creating the most wonderful art work of animals.
