"Be The Best That We Can Be"

Welcome to class 2

Miss Hawksworth

Class Teacher

Mrs Pritchard

Teaching Assistant

Our class motto is...

In Class 2 we always try

To reach our goals we aim high

We are determined, resilient and have no fear

We complete all tasks with a cheer!

This term we are reading the book ‘Funnybones’ by Janet and Allen Ahlberg. Using the text we will be writing a setting description, instruction writing and recreating a scene from the text in art using printing. This half term we are also learning about Florence Nightingale. To help support the children’s learning, we have transformed part of our classroom into a hospital role play area!  The children will be making lamps and also writing a diary entry through the eyes of Florence.

In maths this term, we will have a heavy focus on place value, addition and subtraction in 2 digit numbers. The children will be using dienes to add and subtract practically which will help their ability to calculate mentally.

Here are some photos of what we have been up to so far in the Autumn term...

We visited Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet where we met Florence Nightingale! She told us her story of how she became a nurse and the amazing changes to made to nursing. Some of us become nurses and the others injured soldiers!

We were very lucky to have a visit from a paramedic who told us how he helps people and showed us around his ambulance. He helped us to understand the importance of paramedics and how medical care has improved since the Crimean War.
