Spring Term

Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely Christmas break.  This term our topic is animals. We will be grouping animals, looking at their habitats and what they eat. As we are also looking at the United Kingdom, we will be researching animals that are common in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


We are looking forward to a fantastic term!

Star of the Week

This week our Star is Seth. 

Seth has listened well and shown great concentration resulting in some super work.

Home reading


In Class 2 children will be expected to read at least three times a week at home.  They will be rewarded two Dojo points if they read five times and three dojo points if they read seven times. 


Becoming a competent reader is highly important as reading allows children to access the whole curriculum.  Thank you for your support with this. 

School Reading


 All children will read with an adult at least once a week. At this point, their book will be changed. We encourage children to read a book more than once, this allows them to re-read unfamiliar words, therefore becoming more familiar with these words.  Keeping a book for a few days also allows children to explore the story in more detail. When reading with an adult at school, children are asked questions about the text to check understanding or asked to think of an alternative ending.  This enables the adult to assess the child's level of understanding.



Homework handed out 16th March 2018: I have put a test on this week for the children to complete.

Class 2 had a great time during Art Week.

It was a fantastic week and we are looking forward to the next one.

This week in Class 2 the children have learnt about why we celebrate Bonfire Night. The children have written about The Gunpowder Plot, made posters about staying safe, created some found object art and thought about what senses they would use at a bonfire.

It has been a busy start to the Autumn term. We have been getting ready for the Harvest Festival with some Kandinsky inspired Autumn art.  The children have had lots of practice mixing and combining colours to create patterns. 


In Topic lessons the children have been learning about their local area. We have identified key places in Rampton, Retford and surrounding villages. The children created a map of their local area and are in the process of making an advertisement for a house for sale in the area.  They have thought about the type of house they would like to sell and what rooms it would have. They have written a description of the area to attach to their advert. 


The children are learning lots of key skills in numeracy and literacy lessons.  We have started to write the story of Pinocchio. The children are enjoying experimenting with story language and vocabulary.
