Class 2 have two teachers, Miss Spivey and Mrs Rawson who job share. We explore exciting themes which enable us to cover all aspects of the curriculum. Themes we will be investigating this year are: Beside the Seaside, Christmas is Coming, Communication, There and Back and A Land Down Under. Children will be set regular weekly homework and sometimes a small project.
INFORMATION FOR HOME LEARNING
Unfortunately, the school has had to close due to COVID-19. Below you will find a daily update of the activities set for home learning.
Remember to look each week on the Newsletter as we always try to include photographs and you can also see what other classes are doing as well.
Home Learning for Monday 13th July to Friday 17th July
We cannot believe this will be your last week in Year 2. It has been very different for you all and so we need to say a big thank you to the children, parents and extended family members who have worked so hard over the past few weeks and been resilient, stayed motivated and kept in touch in what has been a difficult and busy time.
All the staff who work in our class have really missed you Class 2, but we have appreciated your effort, the work you have done and we are very proud of all of you. We hope all of you have a lovely school holiday and a good rest!
We have a little poem for you and although we still have some learning to do this week, we know some people may only check our webpage for the weekly plan, so we have shared it with you today.
Goodbye Class 2
It’s time to say goodbye,
The school year is at an end.
We hope you have enjoyed it
And had fun with your friends.
We’ve watched you learn and grow,
And change from day to day.
We hope the things we’ve done,
Have helped along the way.
Although you’ve had some time away,
You still have kept in touch,
So one thing which we need to say,
Is thank you very much!
It is with happy memories,
We send you through our door.
With best wishes for all the things,
Next year will hold in store.
Have a great last week everyone,
From Miss Spivey, Mrs Rawson, Miss Buckley, Mrs Ladley, Mrs McGregor and all the lunchtime and other school staff who have worked with you this year.

PE Theme Activities
Below are the Year 2 Spring term Sticky Knowledge Mats for our theme of ‘Communication’ and our science topics, ‘Living things – Basic needs and offspring’ and ‘Animals including humans – Exercise, food and hygiene’. These were discussed at the last Parents Evening (which seems a long time ago). We are starting to add them to our webpage should you wish to use them as a resource.
Sticky knowledge – What is it? Sticky knowledge is effectively knowledge that will stay with us forever. In other words, an alteration has happened to our long-term memory. We could divide sticky knowledge into two main parts. Firstly, interesting facts that will remain with us forever and secondly, knowledge that we need to learn as part of the national curriculum. New learning is often fragile and usually forgotten unless steps are taken over time to revisit and refresh it. The Mats can be used to dip into at various points throughout the school year to reinforce and embed learning.
