Collective Worship in Class 2

This Wednesday, Class 2 gathered together to complete a collective worship that children in our class had planned. We gathered with a song and listened to a passage from the Bible read by members of our class. We then, dropped a pebble into water whilst remembering the words from the passage then we were given a mission to go away and complete following Jesus' teaching of love. 

Well done Class 2 on the respect you showed this week!

Week 1

This week, it has been lovely to see that Class 2 have come back to school full of energy and enthusiasm after a well-deserved rest and enjoyable Christmas holiday!


We have started many new topics including multiplication and division in Maths, writing a non-chronological report in writing, The Great Fire of London in History and Formal Elements of Art.


We started our Great Fire of London work with a lesson about what happened and how the fire spread, we ordered the events that happened on 2nd September 1666 and then looked at Samuel Pepys' diary entries to answer a variety of questions on the events that occurred.


In Art we completed a lesson on Repeating Pattern in which we used a variety of objects and bright paints on black card to create a captivating artwork. 


Well done Class 2 on making a wonderful start to Spring 1 Term!

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