Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to Year 2,
In the classroom this year there will be Mrs Hume (Class teacher), Mrs Hardisty and Miss Lyttle (Teaching Assistants).
We are looking forward to a year of fabulous learning.
The children will bring their reading books home everyday. We would like them to read at least 3 times a week. Please remember to sign their record book when they read with you at home.
Library day is Wednesday. Please return library books each Wednesday.
The children will bring home spellings every Friday. Please help them to practice these and return the books each Monday so we can have a quick spelling test.
Our PE days are Tuesday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor).
Please continue to keep an eye on Tapestry for any further information.
Class 2 Teacher
Year 2 - Blackburn Museum Trip - To be rearranged (updated 09/02/24)
Whilst at the Museum their visit will be divided into three parts; first, they will look at toys, both old and new and explore the ways in which we can tell ‘old’ from ‘new’. At the same time the children will learn how the old toys were played with and have a go themselves before, finally, sitting down and making their own toy to take back to school.
The children enjoyed their Christmas Party! There was lots of dancing and party games.
Christmas journey with BSYW
The children were taken on a journey through the six scenes of the Christmas Story to experience the Nativity and its relevance today. The experience involved drama, puppets, music, song, crafts and storytelling.
Fire Service Visit
The Fire service came to visit us to talk about keeping safe in a fire. We learnt all about the importance of smoke alarms, how to drop and roll and how to make a fire safety plan for our own homes.
Visit from Artist Andrew Hill
We had a visit from Artist Andrew Hill. He showed us how to use clay and lots of different tools to make a tile with dinosaur textures, fossils and volcanoes.
Visited to Blackpool Zoo
Year 2 visited the zoo. We had a dinosaur workshop and went on a dinosaur hunt as well as enjoying all the other animals around the zoo. We even showed the flamingos or our 'flamingo' balances that we have been practicing in our PE lessons.
Imam visiting from the Mosque
Here are some pictures of the Imam visiting from the Mosque to talk to the children about the Qur'an. He showed them some Arabic letters and words and read the passage about Jesus' birth in Arabic.
Year 2 Live Lesson: Rock Stars of History!
Year 2 took part in a live lesson from the Natural History museum in Oxford called 'Rock Stars of History'. The children learnt all about how fossils are formed and the different types of fossils. They found out about the work of Palaeontologists. We found out about the biggest dinosaur found in Britain - The Megalosaurus!
