Class 2

Hello and welcome to Class 2.

In our class, we have 18 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 Wednesday afternoon, we have PE. Children must remember their PE kits every Wednesday. Multiplication tables homework will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Friday. The children are encouraged to use the 'Timestable Rockstars' app at home - each child has a login for this app. Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday. The children also be given a fun homework project (see below) to complete every 2 weeks.

Come and check our page regularly to see our school day adventures.

We created flags inspired by images of flags from the Bayeux Tapestry. In DT, we have made replicas of Norman weapons - we used these in the battle! The armies ventured to the South of the playground, taunted the other army and then battled! King Harold was killed in battle and William was crowned the new King of Britain!
