Summer Term

Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely Easter break.  This term we will be continuing with our topic of animals. We will be starting to look at animal habitats and finding out about the basic needs of animals for survival, including humans.  Continuing on from our topic about the United Kingdom we will be starting to look at map skills.  


We are looking forward to a fantastic term!

Star of the Week

Our star of the week this week is Elouise. Elouise always challenges herself and is a polite and kind young lady.

Home reading


In Class 2 children will be expected to read at least three times a week at home.  Their reading diaries will be checked every morning and if the children have read they will be rewarded one Dojo. They have the opportunity to earn seven Dojos a week just from home reading.


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 15th June. The children have been given a quiz to complete on

Visit from Nottinghamshire Fire Service 7.6.18

Visit from Nottinghamshire Fire Service 7.6.18 1
We were very excited to welcome the fire service who gave us lots of safety advice. The children enjoyed looking at the equipment and they found it very funny that Mrs Higgs had to dress up as a firefighter.  All children in class 2 had a go at spraying the hose.  Mrs Hobbs may have got a little bit wet at this point.

Habitats - April 2018

Habitats - April 2018 1
We have had a fun first week back in Class 2.  We have started to learn about habitats, particularly habitats in the school playground. Due to the lovely weather this week we have been able to go out and look around the school grounds for habitats. We found birds nests, deadwood for woodlice and a mole hill.  The children then had a go at collecting grass, tree branches, twigs, leaves and feathers to recreate a birds nest.  They had great fun doing this and were very resourceful.

Class 2 had a great time during Art Week. The children spent the week learning and developing art skills.  The four focuses included collage, sculpture, textiles and printing.  The work produced is proudly displayed around school along with the work from the other classes. It was a fantastic week and we are looking forward to the next one.

Learning about Bonfire Night November 2017 (3.11.17)

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.
