Welcome to Class Two

Welcome to our Class 2 page! We had a great first term and enjoyed learning lots of new and exciting things, especially in our Autumn Beachcombers and Rocks, Relics and Rumbles topics. We work hard in Class 2 but do so with fun and creativity at the heart of everything we do. Please see our class blog for an update on what we have been learning!

 

Spring 1st Half

Our topic was 'Beat, Band Boogie.'

During the 1st Spring half term, we learnt all about music! There were lots of opportunities to explore sounds. We created our own percussion using our bodies, created our own instruments in DT and found music around our school grounds. 

Spring 2nd Half

Our topic is 'Through the Ages.'

During this half term, we have explored the past! Our project taught the children about British prehistory from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, including changes to people and lifestyle caused by ingenuity, invention and technological advencement. We started our project by examining timelines and introducing the children to the ways in which we discuss time, for example BC and AD. The children really enjoyed examining images of the past, such as cave art and tools from the past, and could discuss what they thought they were created or used for. This topic linked nicely with our English work on Stone Age Boy! What an exciting half term! The next chapter of our learning will continue to build on this knowledge!

Summer 1st Half

Our topic is 'Emperors and Empires.'

We are moving on from the Iron Age into the Roman era. The children have discovered how humans developed from prehistoric times and how society changed throughout these different periods. We are now examining the history and structure of ancient Rome and the Roman Empire, including the Romanisation of Britain. This will link to our English story, 'Escape from Pompeii,' which will develop our recount and report writing skills. 

 

Please find documents on this page relating to the curriculum which we ensure if fun and engaging to the children. 

In Key Stage  1 we use ‘Letters and Sounds: Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics.’

Our reading schemes are: Oxford Reading Tree, Lighthouse and Pearson  

We are currently using 'Spelling Shed' for those in year two and three which enables them to learn spelling practise and practise at home on the computer or ipad. The link to this is https://play.edshed.com/login. (This will take you to an external website)
