Welcome to Class 2 where Mrs Chadburn/Mr Townsend and the year 2s have fun working together.
In our classroom we love learning creatively and want everyone to feel happy to always have a go! We learn through challenging our brains and trying to reach that next goal. All this is done with a big smile because we love coming to school!

Rumble in the Jungle

Well done to all the children in Class 2. You have made a brilliant start to the new academic year!

In English this week we enjoyed listening and reciting poems about jungle animals. The children loved picking out the rhyming words and identifying the verbs and adjectives in the poems. In May when the children are tested they will have to know what a verb and adjective are.

E.g. High light the verb in the sentence.

The monkey was jumping  from tree to tree.

On Thursday the children had a go at writing their own poems about a lion, monkey or elephant. We will be displaying these poems on large cut outs of monkeys which are going to hang from the ceiling in our classroom. So look out for the cheeky monkeys in Class 2 next week!!

Thank you to all the children who have completed some brilliant homework.

This week, we went to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park!

Despite the rain, we had a fun packed day and saw lots of animals. Some children even held some creatures!

Animals!

This half term we are learning about animals. In preparation for our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park we have learnt about where animals live and the different types. 

See what you can remember:

Here is some of the work we have done this week!

Can you tell a grown up at home about Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s journey to the Antarctic?

Conisbrough Castle!

On Thursday 18th May we went to Conisbrough Castle as part of our history topic on castles.
We had lots of fun walking around the castle and learning about when the castle was built.
Did you know…?
Conisbrough Castle is 850 years old.
The Lord was called Lord Hamlin and the Lady was Lady Isobel.
There was no moat around Conisbrough Castle.

Castles!

As part of our topic this half term, the children have been learning to name the different parts of a castle. They know now where the portcullis is and the purpose of the battlement among others.

We have also made some castles out of clay. The children had a few famous castles as examples and then they recreated them using clay. Some children had great ideas when designing their own castle, which they then made out of wooden blocks.
