Hello and welcome to Class 2.
In our class, we have the wonderful children from Year 3 and Year 4. Miss Markham is our class teacher and Mrs Kirk is our teaching assistant.
We are very excited about the year ahead as there are lots of great topics, fun learning and special experiences to be had.
On a Thursday morning, we have PE. Children must remember their PE kits every Thursday. This term, the children will be going swimming on a Tuesday morning. Multiplication tables homework will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Thursday. Spellings will be given out on a Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday. The children will be expected to complete additional fun homework projects every 2 weeks.

In Science, we have been learning about the properties of gases. We found out that the bubbles in fizzy drinks is made out of carbon dioxide. Next, we investigated which drink was the fizziest.

Viscosity of liquids
Class 2 investigating the viscosity of liquids in Science. We dropped marbles into cups of different liquids and timed how long it took for the marble to travel through them. We found that chocolate spread was the most viscous and water was the least!
For our first lesson on fractions, we divided cupcakes into halves, quarters, thirds and sixths! We got to eat them afterwards. They were delicious!

Class 2 have been learning how to measure in cm, mm and meters this week. Today, we measured the length of the playground and some other items around school. It was lots of fun.
Are all liquids runny?
As part of our potions topic, Class 2 have been investigating how runny some liquids are compared to others. Luckily, we were very sensible and didn't get too messy!
After being inspired on our trip to Warner Brothers Studios we created our own magic wands! We used the glue gun, beads and paint to make them. We even made posters advertising them to persuade others to buy them. Here we are using them to cast some spells!
It's all about sound in science this term and on the 3rd December we made telephones.
Wow Day 1066 Children made swords, axes and shields which were very useful for the reenactment in the afternoon.
New Topic 1066
Excitement in the first week as Class 2 children make catapults, that would be taken in to battle field to defeat the enemy. Then in science our investigation was which sweet would be catapulted the furthest and which sweet would make the wall fall down, out of Marshmallows, toffees, Smarties, Skittles, Dolly Mixtures and Haribos?
Can you make a circuit out of play dough?
For our last electricity investigation, Class 2 made circuits out of play dough! We found that certain types of play dough can actually conduct electricity.

Evil villain Cruella De Vil has stolen the 101 dalmatian puppies! The children in Class 2 have been using an atlas to find the locations she has taken them to and track the puppies down.

On Armed Forces day, Class 2 created their own special medals for special achievements such as kindness and courage. We made them out of clay, painted them with metallic paints and added a ribbon.
This term, Class 2 have been practising their archery skills. We will be as good as Robin Hood soon!
British Values Week - Democracy
As part of British Values week, Class 2 have been learning about democracy and how in Britain we have equal rights and the right to choose how we are treated. We had a very interesting class debate & vote about whether games (like Minecraft) should be banned, as some people believe they are not educational. The children had some very strong opinions on this. Here we are in action!
The children in Class 2 have been producing some absolutely wonderful homework projects for our Heroes & Villains topic. Here are just a few of our marvelous creations.

This week, Class 2 ventured to Sherwood Forest to learn about the life of the legendary Robin Hood. We walked through the magical woods, listened to myths and legends and even acted some of the stories out ourselves. We have some fantastic actors and actresses!
