Autumn 2

Week 4 

W/B: 23.11.20


This Wednesday, Class 2 continued to answer our Science Enquiry Question:

How does it move?


We have previously tested different objects with wheels e.g. toy cars, bikes and scooters. Today, we introduced a wooden ramp.


Using a small, wheeled toy and a piece of wood to act as a ramp we investigated what happens to the vehicle when it goes up or down hill. We used a stopwatch to measure how long it takes to travel. 

Class 2 made sure our experiment was a fair test and completed some great scientific work! Well done scientists yes

Week 3

W/B: 16.11.20

This week is Anti-Bullying Week and so, Class 2 learnt what the word bullying means and we learnt about our differences and what makes us special.


We discussed how important it is to respect each other and the things that make us all different. 


We agreed that it doesn't matter what you look like, your likes, dislikes, talents or personality. Everyone is equal and special. 


Well done on a fantastic week at school Class 2, keep up the hard work!

Week 2

W/B: 09.11.20

Remembrance Day

On Wednesday, Class 2 joined the rest of our school in showing our respects to soldiers that we have lost and we had a moment of silence as it was Remembrance Day. 


We learnt what this means and the children created beautiful poppy wreaths to take home with them in order to remember this special day. 


Well done on another fantastic week Class 2 heart

Week 1

W/B: 02.11.20

What a talented class we are Class 2!


This Friday, Class 2 began our topic of Gymnastics in P.E and they showed great skill whilst we practised balancing. 


We talked about 1 point balances, 2 point balances, 3 point balances, 4 and 5 point balances, and then, PATCH balances which use the core of your body.


Class 2 practised using different numbers of points to balance and then, we demonstrated our balancing skills and guessed how many points other children in our class were using. 


Well done on two fantastic PE sessions and a great first week back Class 2!


One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
