Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to Spring Term!
We hope that you had a relaxing, fun packed Christmas break!
We wanted to let you know the exciting things that we have planned for this term and also to inform you about what we will be covering in class.
We are delighted to be having a number of special visitors to our school this term. Firstly, we have a sports coach who will be delivering a football club and PE lesson every Friday.
Our next visit will be from the Clay rooms who will be showing us how to make animals using clay as part of our Art work. Every child will get chance to make an animal, and it will then be taken away to be dried in a kiln, glazed and returned to school.
Following that, on 24th January we are having a 'Greek Day' where we will be learning about many aspects of Greek life. We are hosting our own 'Olympics' in PE, learning about waterwheels, important Greek people, Greek writing, medicine, toys along with lots more! We are lucky enough to have The History Van come to visit us and to help us to make this a fantastic day.
In our school subjects this term we are learning:
In R.E. we are doing pilgrimages, Christingle ( including the service at church) and moving onto How and why do Christians follow Jesus?

The theme for British Science day this year was 'Journeys' and we based this around transport.
In KS2 Years 3 and 4 made boats and investigated how to make their boat travel the furthest using different variables for a propeller.
The children had such a fantastic time carrying out extra
science activities and making links with maths during their experiments.
