Every child, every day, to learn, to laugh, to love and pray.



Welcome to Class 2






Miss Whittaker is your class teacher. We have an amazing team of people to help us in Class 2- Miss Durkin and Miss Woodcock.


Miss Whittaker, Miss Durkin and Miss Woodcock have had a really enjoyable week with Year 2; the children have been working extremely hard and are getting into the swing of things already! We are looking forward to a very busy year ahead, with lots of exciting topics to learn about!


Our current topic is 'The Gunpowder Plot' where we will be focusing on History and Geography.


We begin our English this half term by looking at  'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' by Judith Kerr. We will be looking at characters and events and shall be relating them to our own experiences. We will practise using capital letters, full stops and different conjunctions (because, but, so, when). You can practise writing sentences at home.


In Science we will be looking at seasonal changes in our local environment.


During maths, we are developing our understanding of place value. Practising partitioning and ordering numbers at home will help.


In RE lessons, we will be learning about friendship and how Jesus is a friend to everyone.




Reading books are sent home each night and need to be brought to school everyday. Guided Reading lessons and Phonics  will take place daily at school.


Please continue to listen to your child read each evening.  Talk about the characters and what happens in the story, asking your child to re-tell the story once they have read it to you. What was their favourite part of the story? Why? Ask lots of 'who, what, where, when, why' questions. If you have time, why not sign up to Oxford Owl? There are hundreds of tablet friendly eBooks to read online and it's FREE!
