Welcome to Class 2B!
Welcome to Class 2B's page. Miss Butler is our teacher and Mrs Watson, Mrs McLoughlin and Miss Williams work in our class sometimes too. Also on a Tuesday morning Mrs Cousins teaches our class.
Keep checking our page and looking out on Twitter to find out more about what we have been up to!
We have PE on a Tuesday and a Wednesday so children need to make sure that they have their indoor and outdoor kits in school on these days.
We have a spelling test on a Friday. Please try to provide opportunities for your children to practise their spellings at home.
It is also important that children have their reading book and diary in school everyday! Remember, for children to be able to change their reading book they must have their diaries signed by an adult.
We can't believe the Summer Term is here already! The children came back after the holidays looking so grown up and their behaviour so far this term is showing us that they are nearly ready for Year 3. We have had a lovely start back with a special visit from Sister Elaine who told us all about nursing and hospitals today compared to those that were around when Florence Nightingale was alive. The children asked excellent questions and listened very carefully so they got some medical equipment to try out themselves. Scroll down to the bottom of our page to see our picture with Sister Elaine and see if you can recognise the children with their masks on.
Our new topic is Wild and Wonderful. The children will be learning about and growing their own plants as well as finding out about the continents and oceans in our world. Later in the term we will be learning about Kenya in more detail and comparing African weather, landscapes and animals to our own in our country. Please have a read of our parent partnership letter (which will be out on Friday) for more details.
Our topic this term is Britain is Great and we have had a 'great' time learning all about the UK. The children in 2B are now very confident at identifying the four countries of the UK on a variety of maps. We have had a big push on extended writing this term too which resulted in the children producing some fantastic pieces based on Julia Donaldson stories. These included descriptions of Zog, a diary entry for Stickman and our own versions of the story of Tiddler. We were so proud of our writing that we decided to display it in the corridor outside our classroom. If you're about then please take a look! We have had a bit of a focus on vehicles over the last few weeks as we had a special visitor called Jo in to talk to us about road safety. The children impressed us with their knowledge of different crossings and they had a very mature approach to staying safe on the roads. A big well done to Katie who answered some tricky questions and to Adelyn who helped Jo with a demonstration about seatbelts. We also recently had a 'Bike It' day which was very successful. Lots of confident children got to have fun on their bikes and those who needed extra support got to practise. Amanda, who organises the event, is going to come back another day this term to give children even more support to learn. We will have a whole year group of riders before we know it!
We have had a fantastic start to the Autumn Term. All of the children have been very helpful and enthusiastic and our class were even the first to win the attendance trophy this week. What an honour! Lots of children have also 'been spotted' around school for their good behaviour which means they will go into a special draw at the end of the month in our Star of the Week Assembly. If their name is picked out they will go on the new 'wall of honour' which is soon to be displayed in our school hall.
We have now started our new topic Starry, Starry Night in which the children will learn all about The Great Fire of London and how it started. They will get their chance to design and build their own Tudor style houses to burn in our famous fire at the end of the term. Don't worry....we will have fire fighters on hand to keep it all under control!!
