Welcome to Class 2

Thinking like scientists


We have had a really exciting Science Week in Class 2. After doing some focused learning about thinking scientifically and the language of science,  we did some fascinating investigations including making a 'balloon kebab' and even our very own lava lamps! The children have become very confident at posing their own hypotheses, and using scientific language to explain their understanding. Many children have been so inspired by our investigations that they have continued their experiments at home and astounded their parents with their knowledge of surface tension, hydrophobic liquids.....oh.....and plenty balloon popping!

A-level Maths


Well, you've heard about how high expectations have become for Primary School children in maths these days, but nothing prepared Class 2 (or Mrs Hume!) for a visit from A-level maths student Kirsty Arrowsmith, who challenged our class with this magnificent algebraic formula this week. At first glance it looked like a completely different language, but it wasn't long before our budding mathematicians started to identify things they recognised. We didn't quite manage to solve the equation, but it certainly inspired us about becoming mathematicians in the future. 



The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

Class two have been getting all soft and sentimental this week, inspired by the text 'The Miracualous Journey of Edward Tulane'. Children and teachers have been bringing in treasured dolls and teddies, including a very old china doll that belonged to Mrs Harper's Mum, and talking and writing about them in class. It has been a lovely opportunity for both adults and children to share some of the softer parts of themselves in school, and discuss common experiences in a safe and nurturing way. The children have already produced some wonderful pieces of writing and this promises to be a topic up there with the very best!

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Packed Lunch!

Children in Class 2 were delighted to see class mate Jack Burton appear on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Take-Away this weekend, winning a once-in-a-life-time prize to fly on a private jet to Florida. Jack is renowned in our class for his food choices, so the children sang and filmed a special 'packed lunch' song to send to him whilst he is away. Jack celebrates his tenth birthday whilst in Florida so we hope the song reaches him in time for a birthday he will never forget. Happy Birthday Jack!
