St Helen’s Catholic Primary School

Autumn Term 1

Week 3

This week, we have explored old and new castles in one of our topic sessions, ordering them from oldest to newest and, we explored famous tunnels from all over the world.


In writing, we have continued looking at the traditional story of Rapunzel and we have retold the story in a big piece of writing at the end of the week. The children worked so hard on their work and should be proud!

Well done Class 2

Week 2

This week, Class 2 have worked together in our PE session on Team Games.


We have played 'Buried Treasure', a game they love when they work as teams to gain as much treasure as they can from the middle of our game whilst travelling in different ways. 


We have also completed lots of different Relay Races together, making sure we encouraged and cheered each other on throughout our races! 


Everyone really enjoyed our PE session this Monday and we are looking forward to working together to develop more of our skills this Thursday with Active Fusion in another PE session!

Week 1

Welcome to Class 2 to our new children!


This week Class 2 made a fantastic start to our school year.


We have had lots of opportunities to share our summer memories and to get to know the children around us and our new surroundings through games and activities. 


The children have also really enjoyed taking part in a new RWI spelling game in our class called YAHOO spellings where they sit back to back with a partner and try to spell a given word. Then, when they are told to, they check if they have got the same spelling as their partner, helping each other to change their answers if they haven't. Finally they shout YAHOO when they have the same and we look at how to spell the word together! 


Class 2 have also loved seeing photographs of their own smiling faces on our Phonics Wall holding a whiteboard, where a new sound will be written every few days to test the children on!


Well done on beginning our school year as you have Class 2 and for showing bravery as, it is a bit nerve-racking entering a new class but, you have shown you are ready for a challenge!

Remember our letters to parents are put on our website so if you lose a letter please check under the parents' section of your child's school and you should find a copy there.
