Welcome back Class 2!

I hope you’ve had a lovely holiday and done lots of exciting things. We have had a brilliant first week back at school and all the children have settled in fantastically. This term our topic is called me and my country. In Science last week we were looking at our bodies, drawing round them and labelling our body parts. Do you know what your abdomen is?IMG_0428

Our new topic

This term Class 2 will be learning about seasides and under the sea. In history we will look at how seasides have changed over time, looking at what they were like in the past. In geography we will be looking at the world’s oceans and seaside towns around the world. We are also going to be visiting The Deep on the 1st of July. Dont forget that you need to return your money and slip if you woud like to come.

Conisbrough Castle

This week Class 2 went on a school trip to Conisbrough Castle. We had a tour around the castle learning what each room was and how it was used. We learnt how the lords, cooks and peasants lived long ago. Lady Isobelle and Lord Hamlin built the castle 850 years ago. The children dressed up as people from the medieval times and did some drama and role play. Have a look at some of our photos below.

Circle Time

Circle time has  now become a weekly occurance in Class 2. We get to hear all about the exciting things children have been doing at home or plans they have for the weekend. The children are really enthusiastic and enjoy listening to what  the tothers have to say. We are getting really good at listening to others when they are talking.
