Welcome to our class 2 page. Miss Beecher is the teacher in class two and working alongside her and the children is Mrs Sheppard and Mrs Saxton.  We also have Miss Anstee in class 2 for a while. Our class has 31 amazing pupils, a class full of a wide variety of fantastic personalities, senses of humour but most of all positive attitudes and eagerness to learn.  We always have very busy days enjoying our learning and working hard to achieve so much success.


Our PE is Wednesday afternoon each week. 

Summer Term 2023

Another busy term ahead, with so much learning and work to be done!   In Science we will learning about animals and their habitats.  this is going to include some fantastic investigation about food chains, different habitats and why animals adapt to them.

 In Pe we will be taking part and learning in different striking and fielding lessons.  This will mean perfecting different throwing techniques ans understand when it’s best to use which one, also fielding as part of a time and striking a ball to win points for your team.

In music, we will continue our journey of learning to play a musical instrument, a recorder.  Children will learn to play notes and follow certain music to play particular tunes and notes.

In RE our learning will be centered around learning about the sacred books and the different storytellers in them  and how we can relate it to other religions and aspects of our own lives too.

In art, we will continue to build on our skills using pastels, watercolours and paint.  We will study still life this time, exploring different artists and techniques.  

We will spend a lot of time using ipads and chrome books also, learning how best to use them to support our learning and also present it too.  I am learning myself how I can best use it in class, so we will be spending lots of time learning together.

Our geography lessons will be spent learning about another part of the world, Sri Lanka, learning about the similarities and differences between our home and there.  The children will learn about foods, transport, houses, religion and so much more.  

We have read.



We are continuing to develop 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.   We are reading The Enchanted Wood at the moment.    Frannie, Joe and Beth move to the country with their mum, they explore and find that the woods close by are enchanted and there is a magical tree.

Learning at home

Reading at home is always a very positive thing to do for the children in year 2.  We read a lot in class and 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...  Password will be sent home for children to use.
