Class 6 (Year 2)

Today is Earth Day. We took part in a prayer and worship. We thought about the world and listened to the first story from the book of Genesis to learn about the creation of the world and the job God gave us to care for it. We drew pictures of the things we can do to take better care of our amazing world. 

Today, we investigated if a plant needs soil to grow. The children made their predictions and we prepared the investigation. We are going to see over the next few weeks if our beans grow into healthy plants!

Before half term, we received some caterpillars! We have watched them change and grow over a number of weeks. On Easter Sunday, our caterpillars changed into butterflies. We looked after them for a few days and then released them. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about the butterfly life cycle and seeing it first hand. 

Today, we have taken part in the Day of Reflection. As we are sure you are aware, today marks one year since the first UK lockdown. At school we have taken part in a prayer and worship and reflected upon our hope for the future. We also wrote a whole class prayer and placed it in the prayer garden.
We have also taken part in a child- led prayer and worship centered around giving thanks. We listened to the Last Supper story and thought about who we would like to say thank you to more often. 
This week, we have been reading the book, 'Tadpole's Promise' by Jeanne Willis. The children took on the role of the caterpillar or the tadpole in the story. They had to portray their love for one another. There were a few giggles!
Welcome back to all of our Home Learners!

Class 6's Fundraisers!


Thank you to all the children in Class 6 for bringing in donations for a Christmas Family Hamper. We have made 4 hampers from the donations you have kindly brought in. Also, we have raised an amazing £44.10 for our chosen charity, 'Bed for a Night'. Thank you to all the children who took part in our Christmas Tree Tombola. 

Christmas Fundraiser

Monday 23rd November 2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of our Advent preparations, and to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in our hearts and minds, Class 6 would like to raise some money for a local homeless charity during this half term. After discussions with the children, we have decided to arrange a Christmas Tree Tombola.

Christmas Tree Tombola – staff will be arranging the tombola and the children will have the opportunity to win lots of lollies but the first prize winner will win a whole Christmas tree with sweets on it!

The tombola will take place on Wednesday 9th December 2020 – the tombola is 50p a go so please send 50p with your child on this day. The children can have a few goes (no more than 4 though please) if they wish so please send the correct amount.  All of the money raised will then be donated to our chosen charity.

We also decided that we would like to help a family enjoy Christmas Day this year by creating a class Christmas Day Hamper. All we ask is that your child comes to school in their own clothes on Tuesday 8th December and donates (as payment for this non-uniform day) an item to our Family Hamper.

We have provided a list of items you could pick from, but if you have another idea in mind it will be greatly appreciated!

Christmas Day Family Hamper List:

Mince Pies                          Biscuits

Chocolate                            Cheese

Crackers                               Relish

Sweets                                 Tinned vegetables

Selection box                     Gravy granules

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Martin, Mrs Cadd, Miss Worsley and all of Class 6.

Today, we have been learning about habitats in Science! The children were given a picture of an animal and they had to stand next to the habitat they thought the animal lived in. The children could explain how they knew that their animal belonged to their habitat. We had lots of fun!
This week, we have been reading the book, 'Pigs Might Fly' by Jonathon Emmett. We have been focusing on how the wolf was feeling in the story and we are going to be writing diary accounts. The children became the wolf today and explained how furious they were with the three little pigs! Class 6 has got some fantastic actors!
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely break at half term. We have lots of exciting things planned for Autumn 2. We have attached our newsletter for you to find out what we will be learning about!
This half term we have been learning about Space! We designed and made our own spaceships with martians in them. The children had a great time making these and they discussed the steps they took to create them. 

October- The Month of the Rosary


Class 6 took part in a prayer and worship all about the Rosary. They learned about the 4 mysteries and some of the stories within each mystery. The children thought about how Mary felt in each of the Mysteries. We wrote prayers to Mary, thanking her for giving us Jesus. 



Today, Class 6 came into class to find something interesting! They found a message from an alien named Clomp! Clomp needed some help with fixing his spacecraft. He also left us a story to read. 


Over the next few weeks, we are going to learn the story and write some stories of our own!

Welcome back to a new school year! We hope that you have enjoyed your Summer holidays as much as you possibly could! The children have settled in well to their first day in Class 6. Your child's class teacher is Miss Martin and classroom TA's are Miss Worsley and Mrs Cadd. 


Our PE days are:




Please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days. They will need warm clothing as they may be doing PE outside. 


We have lots of exciting things planned for your children this year so we hope your children enjoy Year 2. The half term newsletters will be available to view on this page but if you require a paper copy please go to the main office.
