Class 2

Capacity investigation

This week class 2 have been learning all about capacity! We took our investigation outside to find out the capacity of a range of containers! 



Welcome Class 2

Welcome to class 2 – year 1 and 2.

Year 1 and 2 are taught by two teachers. Mrs Hood works Monday-Wednesday and Mrs Cox works Thursday and Friday. There is also Mrs Carney who supports in our class every morning.

Here are some important reminders about being in class 2.


Once children start year 1 they need to bring a P.E kit – a white t shirt and black or blue shorts. P.E lessons will take place every Wednesday and Thursday. P.E kits should be brought into school at the start of each half term and it will stay in school until the end of each half term, when we will send it home to be washed.

Reading Books and library books.

Your child will get a reading book when they start the school year. Please make sure that your child has their reading book in school every day. These books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday, but only if they have been read to an adult. We aim to listen to your child read in school each week but we would appreciate your support by listening to your child read at home. Help them to practise recognising words on sight, blending new words, using picture cues and discussing what they have read. Please make sure that you record a comment in their yellow reading diaries to let us know that your child has read their book to you.

Your child will be given the opportunity to choose a library book which will be changed every Monday.


Your child will be given homework every Friday which needs to be returned by the following Wednesday. They will be given either an English or Maths activity.

Your child will also receive spellings every Monday which will be tested on a Friday.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to come and see us.
