Welcome to Class 2!
Please have a look at our photographs and videos to see some of our learning.
DT Structures: Holy Land Houses - April 2022
Our RE topic about Faith Founders (Jesus and Abraham) was the starting point for our DT project. We researched ways to strengthen and stabilise structures and then designed and built holy land houses.
As a church school Easter is a very special time. We have again made Easter cards for the elderly in our community. We explored the symbolism of the Easter story and each day read out from our Easter tree a section of the the holy week story.
Stonehenge Art - March 2022
We were inspired by our learning in history about Stonehenge to create shaded sketches of the intriguing place, using hatching and cross hatching techniques. We then created backgrounds using two different types of media- chalk pastels and paint washes. We experimented with flat, graduated and mixed washes before applying to the final piece of work.
World Book Day - March 2022
This year, World Book Day celebrated its 25th anniversary. We enjoyed our own celebrations dressing up as characters from our favourite books, taking part in book quizzes and writing book reviews.
Money Matters - February 2022
In maths, we have been learning to recognise, count, add up money and calculate change. We have practised these skills with role shops. We have had a cake shop, art supplies and a book shop!
The Great Fossil Find - January 2022
As part of our Science topic, we worked scientifically as palaeontologists on an imaginary fossil hunt. ‘Each day’ we discovered a few fossilised bones of an unknown animal. As we uncovered the bones, we tried to reconstruct the animal that we thought that it would most likely be. However as more bones were found, we realised that we had to change our ideas as to what the animal might be.
Christingle Dance - December 2021
As part of our Christingle service which we organised and led, we created a dance to express the symbolism of the Christingle.
Christingle Service Candle Song - December 2021
During the Christingle service we sang the candle song. You can't see us, but you can listen to our beautiful voices.
Hamantaschen Biscuits - November 2021
Our Design Technology food topic was linked to our Purim topic. We researched, designed and made traditionally eaten biscuits eaten during Purim celebrations. We all agreed they were yummy!
Purim Day - November 2021
As part of our learning about the Jewish festival of Purim we celebrated with Purim day. We found out about the characters in the story, Esther, Haman, Mordecai and the king Xerxes and made their masks.
Them Bones! - October 2021
We worked in teams to identify and label bones in the body.
Wizard Collage - September 2021
Our reading of the 'Adventures of the Wishing Chair' inspired us to create collages of the characters the Ho-Ho wizard and the gnome doctor.

At the end of term we invented some new water themed team games. It was great fun!
Roman Day - July 2021
Togas, laurel head pieces and Roman food were all part of the fun of Roman day!
Harry Potter Day - May 2021
During this half term we have written information texts about Hogwarts houses, in Art sketched Harry Potter to then create digital images. We finished our topic with a Harry Potter Day, in which we created our own house ties, wands, broomsticks and potions (very carefully measured out). Perhaps we enjoyed the feast in the great hall the most!?
Easter - March 2021
We have been busy decorating our classroom to help us celebrate Easter
Mothers' Day Cards - March 2021
We have made some Mothers' Day cards for all the important females in our lives. We think they will be really pleased to receive them (Miss Varley said they look better than real bunches of flowers!).
Christmas Bags - December 2020
Class 2 have designed and made Christmas gift bags. We practised our back stitch sewing skills to make a secret interior pocket. In addition we used decorative stitches to embellish our Christmas felt shapes.
Elves - November 2020
Our clay art topic was inspired by our class book the Magic Faraway Tree. We all created an elf figure head from a ball of clay, moulding and adding some features using clay slip.
Celebrating Harvest - October 2020
We have been busy making scarecrow cards to help us celebrate Harvest. We think they look really good. We made a few extra to deliver to members of the community and they were well received!
World Book Day - March 2020
We enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day - can you guess who we are?
LegoWeDo - February 2020
We rose to Mrs Clayton's challenge in Computing to learn how to code. We had to follow instructions to build a Lego model and then we used the iPads to write 'code' to make our models move. We had lots of fun and managed to make all them move!
Amazing Mathematicians! - February 2020
We have been practising our subtraction skills using tens and units apparatus. We solved lots of tricky calculations!
Stonehenge - January 2020
