Class 2

Mrs Clarkson

Welcome to Class 2

Class 2 sceneOur class is a class of year 1 and 2 children.

Mrs Davies will be teaching on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday afternoons and Thursdays and Mrs Garner will be teaching on Wednesday mornings and Fridays.

Our teaching assistants are: Mrs Scourfield and Mrs Clarkson.  They will work with the children at different times.

We like to change the children's reading books on Mondays and Thursdays. The children choose reading books at a comfortable level for them to read.

We encourage you to make any comments about your child's reading by writing in their reading diary and hope you will support them in their reading at home.

PE days are Thursdays and Fridays. Your child will require a P.E. kit that is clearly labelled with their name. We would encourage you to provide your child with easy fastenings for their shoes as this helps to make changing a quick and easy task.

Homework will be set on Thursdays to be returned the following Monday. The homework isn't compulsory but if it is done it will help to support your child's work in class. We have a pair of class dogs called Crumble and Custard and know that they have visited some of you already during our last school year! Crumble and Custard, complete with their own journal and basket will continue their visits this school year.

Some of our topics to be studied this year:

  • Improving the Local Area
  • The Gunpowder Plot
  • Textiles
  • Changing Materials
  • Circuits
  • Habitats
  • History of Toys
  • Light and Dark
  • Grace Darling
  • The Seaside

We hope that this information is useful and thank you in anticipation of your support.
