Welcome to Class 2 – Mrs Stevenson, Mrs Morley and Mrs Burton.
Last half term we were learning about: The World.
Our topic during the last half term was ‘The World’. This had a geography focus. We completed work on locating the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We identified physical and human features of the environment and compared and contrasted West Yorkshire with Ghana in West Africa. We also studied different habitats in the world and how living things live in a habitat to which they are suited. We visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park so that we could see some animals in real life.
Well done to everyone who gained Class Dojo points during the last half term.
Our top scorers were: AGT, FT, FS, TB and OH.
Take a look at some of the fantastic learning we have done:
We are most proud of: our team work in both the sports day and the Waterton scatterball tournament, along with our impeccable Mill Dam behaviour when we visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
This half term we will be learning about: What a Wonderful World
Our key learning skill for this half term is: Resilience.
We will be developing it by: setting ourselves goals, learning from our mistakes and building our self-confidence.
Our class books include: The Koala Who Could by Rachel Bright, Dear Earth by Isabel Otter and Clara Anganuzzi, and Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett.

Children always have reading as part of their homework and are expected to read at home regularly. In mathematics the children need to practise the number bonds to and within 10, initially and then use these to calculate number bonds to and within 20 and then 100; as well as practising their 2’s,5’s and10 times tables. Children have a log on and passwords to access ‘TT Rockstars’ at home. The children’s spellings for the half term will be uploaded on to ‘Teams’.
