If you wish to know further information relating to the curriculum in Class 2 please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Ellison via Class Dojo.


 We are starting the term with a fable story called ‘The Crow’s Tale’. Our next topics are Singapore and Milo imagines the world, which link well with our Geography topics. 



 This term we will be working with numbers up to 100, adding and subtracting. We will be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will then begin our learning on Multiplication and Division.


Religious Education 

Our first RE topic is all about families and celebrations, particularly Baptism. If you could talk to your child about their Baptism or send in any photos that would be great. Our Virtues this term are Faith. Simplicity, Love and Forgiveness. 


Science .  

Science is a very hands on topic this term – materials! We will be completing lots of experiments to test out a variety of materials.



We are learning all about our world and studying another country that is a contrast to our own.



Our History topic this term is ‘Houses from the Past’. We will be comparing modern homes with Victorian homes.



Our unit this term is a sculpture unit! We will be making clay houses.



This term we will be learning about different mechanisms and how w



In Computing we are programming robots! This is a very fun topic and helps us with giving and following instructions.



Class 2’s PE days this half term are Monday and Wednesday. Children come to school in their PE kit. They can come in their trainers. Pumps should permanently be in school in a pump bag for indoor wear.



We are thinking about how our behaviour and choices affect others. We will discuss being polite and respectful, being part of a group and how we all have differences.



 Children in Class 2 should read their reading book out loud to an adult every night. If they are doing Read Write Inc, they should be reading the whole book. This is recorded in the green reading record.

The book and record must come to school every day to be checked or exchanged. The day the books are changed will vary depending on which reading group your child is in, but you will receive at least two per week. These should be re-read to ensure fluency. 


Library visit

Class 2 had a wonderful visit to Barnoldswick library . They listened to some stories and made some cards.
