Class 2 2023 - 2024

Mrs Edwards


Welcome to Class 2


This half-term our topic is 'Continents and Oceans'.


This half-term, Class 2 will be learning about Continents and Oceans as part of their Geography topic. Children will find out what a continent is and learn facts about each continent. They will find out which is the biggest continent and also the smallest continent. They will find out what to wear in the Polar regions and what to wear at the Equator. Children will use maps and globes to support learning.

What can I do to support my child at home?

Why not talk about continents and countries that you have visited. Use photos to generate more detailed conversations.

Talk about places that you would like to visit and why you would like to be a tourist there.



All children are grouped for Phonics and for Guided Reading. Class 2 children have recently been assessed by our English Subject Leader, Mrs Adams. 

Our new book to support writing this half-term is ...



As we are learning more about Nibbles every day, please resist reading ahead - even if you have a copy - as it can be difficult for children to keep their extra knowledge to themselves.

What can I do to support my child at home?

Encourage your child to read to you regularly. Your child's books should be returned every Thursday so that they can be changed and ready to come home again on Friday.



Children in Y1 and Y2 will use their mental calculation skills during Early Morning Maths as soon as they arrive at school. Y1 will calculate answers to + and - problems. Y2 will calculate answers to +, -, x and ÷ problems.

During the daily maths lesson this half term, we will be learning about addition and subtraction.

What can I do to support my child at home?

Encourage your child to access Sumdog each week.

Y1 and Y2 will enjoy exploring number lines using this great free APP:

Y1 and Y2 love to explore the 100 square and to identify the missing numbers:




We will be learning about Materials this half-term. We will be finding out:

What is the best material to use to make an absorbent bed for a puppy?

What does reflective mean and which materials are reflective?

How can we sort different materials?

What can I do to support my child at home?

Discuss the above questions. Could your child look for different materials in your home?



Please check this page regularly for updates and more information.

Feel free to ask me for help and support - we work best when we work as a team.
