Class 2

We made our very own amazing kaleidoscopes.

Welcome to Class 2


Hello and welcome to Class 2. We are the Chimps (Year 2) and the older Dolphins (Year 1) and Mrs Thompson is our class teacher. We are lucky enough to have Mrs Wilson and Mrs Howell (teaching assistants) throughout the week helping us with our learning too.


Term 1

Term 1 is a busy term, settling into a new class and working with new people. This term we have enjoyed finding out all about people who have helped us in the past, and those who help us today. We enjoyed a class visit from Mr Street, who is a firefighter in London. We have also been finding out about Florence Nightingale, Neil Armstrong and his lunar mission. We had great fun making our own Apollo 11 space rockets.


Term 2

We have been excitedly learning about light and dark. We created shadow puppets and explored reflection by building our own kaleidoscopes.

As part of our learning this term, we have been finding out about the work of the impressionist painter Camille Pisarro. We made observational drawings of fruit inspired by his artwork and explored colour mixing, using autumnal colours to develop our artworks.

We also looked at the work of Eduardo Paolzzi and created mono prints based on his machine, pop-art images.


Term 3

We love to work and discover and always try our very best. The topic this term was Once Upon a Time. We have read and interpreted several traditional tales and linked this to history by using laptops and ipads to research castles. We created our own Castle information books. This term will culminate in an exciting trip to the medieval Conisbrough Castle. In Design Technology we designed and constructed a working castle drawbridge.

In Art this term, we have been looking at the sculptures of Antony Gormley. We looked at photographs of The Angel Of The North and used clay to create a class installation similar to Gormley’s work, The Field.


Term 4

This term Year 2 children go on a one night residential trip to Rand Farm just outside  Lincoln. We get to stay in very comfortable accommodation, get fed incredibly well and spend two days learning about the farming industry and helping the staff look after the animals. It is a most enjoyable two days and the children have a great time.


Just a few reminders please:



Children should have their reading books and record books in their book bags everyday. Children can change reading books in the morning if and when they need to. Please remember to write in the reading record when you have listened to your child read.



Homework is given out on a Thursday and collected in by the following Wednesday. Homework reinforces our learning in class. Children take a pride in their work and are often keen to share what they have done at home.



Spelling test is on a Friday. The children are encouraged to apply their spellings in sentences rather than remember them by wrote.


I hope you enjoy looking at what we get up to in Class 2.
