Class 2

Welcome to Class 2.  Miss Hartley is our teacher and we are supported by our wonderful Teaching Assistant, Mrs Shaw.

We are now settled into a new term and all the children are becoming familiar with lots of new routines! We are working hard, learning with, and from each other, and building our friendships.  We are also aiming to gain lots of "Diamond Power" by solving problems and building our resilience.  Our classroom has a prayer space where we can write our own prayers, connect with God and have some quiet, thinking time.

Here are just a few pieces of information which you may find useful.  Thank you, Miss Hartley and Mrs Shaw.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday - please come to school in your PE kit.

Spelling lists for children will be sent out weekly from 13th September.

Homework is given out on Friday, to be returned on Monday, please.

Our Welly Wednesdays this half term are 15th September and 6th October. 

Curriculum overview Class 2 Autumn 2021

 

Our Christian Value is KINDNESS - Ephesians 4:32 Instead be kind to each other, tender hearted and forgiving, as God in Christ forgave you. 

Our chosen hymn is called "Kindness"

We aim to show this daily, in class, around school, with our friends and with everyone we come into contact with. We are always thinking of something kind to say to someone to "build them up."
