Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 2

 

 

Welcome to Class 2.  We have a big, bright and colourful classroom for the year 1 and 2 children.  The class has windows overlooking the playground and school field.  We also have a doorway leading straight out onto the field.  We have a large interactive whiteboard for us all to use, computers in the room and access to group sets of iPads.  

In the classroom we have 100s of reading books in our cosy reading area, lots of learning games and construction kits to engage the children in independent learning.

Please continue to look at our class page for updates in our learning.

Autumn Term 2019-2020

Forest school (Wednesday 23rd October). We have had a wonderful time during our shelter building forest school theme. The children have risen to all the challenges set and created some thoughtful and functional shelters for different people or animals. Today the children flew high into the sky on our rope swing and dived deep into the muddy puddles around forest school. We ended by lighting a cosy, warm fire and made s’mores  

Forest School (Wednesday 2nd October) The children had to choose an animal and design and build a shelter for that animal.  It had to be suitable for the size and shape, but also, the children needed to think about the environment and conditions that animal would live in.

We also cut and wittled some willow, befor toasting apples and brown sugar on the fire.

Our Super Start and first Class trip of the year to Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean.  We had a magical and awe inspiring day out in the ancient woods near Coleford.  The scenery and views really took our breath away.  We hope to take so much inspiration from the day out within our topic, The Enchanted Wood.
