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 continue to work in small groups for English. We read at least one new story every week and complete writing tasks about the story.



This term we are moving up to counting with numbers past 100! We will be working with halves and quarters in fractions. We will also create our own block graphs and reason about them.


Religious Education 

Our first RE topic is all about the Resurrection. We learn all about Easter. Later, we will move onto the topic ‘Miracles’ where we learn lots of stories about Jesus..


Science .  

Our topic this term is ‘Plants’. We will be learning to identify trees and plants in our local area and labelling the basic structure of a variety of plants.



We are learning all about our area, in particular doing fieldwork in the school grounds. We will be using compass points and maps to help us.



Our History topic this term is all about the history in our local area. We will look at what schools used to be like and playground.



We will be completing some textured art linking to our theme in other subjects.



This term we will be using wheels and axles in mechanical systems. We will also be using our knowledge of keeping healthy to design a healthy meal.



In Computing, we will be consolidating and applying all of the skills we have learnt over the year.



Class 2’s PE days this half term are Monday and Friday. Children come to school in their PE kit. They can come in their trainers, and pumps should always be in school for indoor wear. Please name everything.



We are learning about ‘growing and changing’, preparing for the changes coming when we move into a new year group. We will also cover keeping safe online..



Children in class 2 should read some of their reading book out loud to an adult every night. 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. Thank you so much for all your support with reading at home.

Please can children bring bookbags every day. They are needed for reading books and letters.



Homework will be set on Class Dojo every week on Monday.  There will also be optional homework.  




 Playtime Games

Class 2 learned how to play some traditional playtime games, connected to our History topic for this term. 

Bug Hunting

As part of their Science topic of Living Thing and Habitats, Class 2 went on a bug hunt around the school grounds.
