Welcome to Class 2!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let Mrs Rowberry know! She would love to see what you are doing, please email [email protected] Thank you!
Hello Class Two,
Well, we're in week 2 of school closure and I hope you are getting into a simple routine, I have tried here at home and some days work well but some don't! I'm looking forward to it getting warmer again so I can spend some more time in the garden and plants some vegetables to grow. I've got French beans, runner beans and saved some seeds from my favourite tomatoes to pop into pots and hanging baskets.
I hope you are taking part in lots of different activities, there is so much out there at the moment it can become confusing but keeping busy saves you getting bored. If there is anything specific anybody would like let me know and I'm happy to find it for you from different resources I use.
Below I have popped on a couple of documents with activity ideas, including STEM, Lego and things to do on your own or with someone else (suitable for different ages), I hope they are useful.
I look forward to hearing from you and finding out what you have been making, learning and exploring.
Stay busy and have fun.

Hi Class Two.
Well, it's week one of our school closure and I hope you are making the most of the sunshine and having time in the garden while still using your home learning packs. It would be great if you could complete a maths and an English activity each day. Your grown ups are really happy to help and can always email me with any questions or you can send me some photos of what you are doing, I'd love to see them.
In the next couple of weeks I will pop some more ideas up for you do, however, the BBC site below has got some great shows and then Twinkl have made resources to support these. They are definitely worth a watch, but not too many in one day!
Year Twos we were just about to start learning more about fractions so that may be a good place to start and Year Ones explore activities to do with measuring; weight, capacity, length and time. Remember your grown ups are your teachers now, so listen carefully to their instructions and follow their rules.
Have fun and see you soon.

Please find below SATs documents for Year Two from previous years. These are end of year tests so please note that children have not completed the Year Two curriculum.
All papers have been downloaded from .gov website, unfortunately the 2019 Reading paper 2 booklet is too big to load onto our webpage but anyone can get it from the .gov site if they wish.
In Class 2 our teacher is Mrs Rowberry and our teaching assistant is Mrs Gibson. We are in Years 1 and 2. We follow the Key Stage 1 part of the National Curriculum. Mrs Rowberry plans exciting and interesting lessons for us. The subjects we learn are:
We believe we learn best when we work in partnership with parents. Reading at home, every night if possible, is a great way to improve your phonics ability and comprehension. Mrs Rowberry also send hoe regular English and mathematic homework These activities are very much based on what we have been learning in class. Occasionally we may send home an idea for an optional bigger 'project' to be completed, possibly over a half term holiday or a few weeks. Examples of these projects include make a lighthouse or a representation of your home using any materials or media you would like.
We always try to start and finish our English sequences of learning with a WOW in and a WOW out. These can include something appearing in the classroom to special visits or visitors.
Very often, we explore these subjects through our topic work. Some of the exciting themes we’ve covered include The Great Fire of London, The Seaside and Treasure Island. Our classroom is spacious with room inside and outside for us to work, whatever the weather. We enjoy working hard on activities that can be put on display.
If you’d like to know more about our curriculum please do contact the school. If you come and visit we can also show you the curriculum maps we send home to our parents each term.
We love Thursday afternoons when we spend time exploring nature in the school grounds. We look for changes in the seasons, make things and learn important skills such as how to work together.
