Class 2

Welcome to Class 2

 

A very warm welcome to our class page.

Class 2 is home to a mixed age group of Year 1 and Year 2 children. Mrs Morris is the class teacher. Mrs Woods (Teaching Assistant) works alongside Mrs Morris in the mornings. We are then joined by Mrs Davies (Teaching Assistant) in the afternoons. Mrs Conlon (Teaching Assistant) works in Class 2.

We are looking forward to a busy and productive year in Class 2, learning lots of new and exciting things, and having some fun along the way!

We hope you will join us on our journey and visit our class page as we celebrate your child's achievements and provide you with an insight in to school life and learning in Class 2.

The Class 2 page will also serve as a useful tool to inform parents of things such as; routines and forthcoming events. As the year progresses we will have links to useful and informative websites to support you as parents with your child's learning.

We look forward to working in partnership with parents this year, and as always if you have any questions or queries about your child's learning, then do not hesitate to come and speak to Mrs Morris.

Thank you

Please remember to come and visit the Class 2 page to view photos and information linked to your child's learning.

English
 
This Autumn half term we will be focusing on stories with familiar settings, finding information about various animals from non-fiction texts, ICT and video clips as well as exploring poetry chants, linked to animals and ourselves.
In week 1 the children enjoyed the story, "Not Now Bernard." The children had to use and create their own monster puppets to take on mischievous adventures around school and then write about their own monster adventures.
Maths
 
For the last few weeks, the children have been focusing on the topic Place Value. The Year 1 children have been re-visiting sorting using their own criteria and counting and representing numbers, as well as understanding the language and mathematical symbols of lesser than, greater than and equals. They have been learning a little rhyme to help them remember these symbols > < :
"Alligator, alligatoe,
which number will you eat?
The bigger one, the greater one.
It will be sweet!"
The Year 2's have been understanding and representing the value of each number with 2-digits. They have also been counting forwards and backwards in 2's, 3's, 5's, 10's & 1's.
History Toys and Games
 
We were very lucky and grateful to have some parent and grandparent visitors who were able to kindly come in to school and share some memories of toys and games from their childhood. The children were fascinated about some of the stories that our visitors shared.
below are some photographs of this exciting visit.
 
Maths of the Day
 
Maths of the day is a fun new way of exploring maths on the go and keeping fit at the same time! Year 2 have been involved in the practical Maths of the Day activity to help consolidate their Place Value knowledge.
Year 1 have also been enjoying practical maths with their friendly mascot; 'Motty.'
RE- Harvest and Creation 
 
In addition to finding out where some of our food comes from, the children have been thinking about God's creation. The children used sound and music to represent each day of God's wonderful creation. The children came up with some great ideas.

KS1 Trip to Liverpool Cathedral
  
The children in KS1 had the fantastic opportunity to visit Liverpool Cathedral. We were given  a personalised tour by our friendly and fun guide. He gave us lots of interesting information about the history of the cathedral building. The children also got to reproduce their very own stained glass windows depicting the scene of 'The wise Men's Visit.'
 
Here's what some of the children in Class 2 had to say about this magnificent building:
Declyn: "It's dead clean, isn't it?"
Sophia: "The windows are beautiful."
 
Check out the photographs of our visit below.
