Welcome to Class 2's page!


Our class teacher is Mrs Hooper; other adults who support us are Miss Coole and Miss Bebbington.


Our topic for the second part of the Autumn Term is called 'Fire! Fire!' We will be finding out and thinking about The Great Fire of London. We will be investigating when the fire started and why it started, as well as what happened on each day of the fire. We will also be explaining all of the reasons why the fire spread so quickly and describing the changes between London in 1666 and London in 2017.


Our first English text will be 'How the Fox Stole Fire' - A Native American folk tale about fire.

Our school focus for class reads this half term is - strong female characters. Our class read this half term is 'Maisie Hitchins - The Case of the Spilled Ink' by Holly Webb. Maisie Hitchins longs to be a detective. She’s sure there are lots of adventures to be had on the streets of Victorian London. And, together with her faithful puppy, Eddie, she is determined to follow even the slightest scent of a mystery – no matter what!

We will also be reading lots of other books linked to The Great Fire of London.

It is going be fantastic sharing these topic linked stories together.


In maths we will be really focusing on number, particularly place value, addition and subtraction. We will be using a variety of different methods and resources to support our learning. Please have a look at our calculation policy for some of these methods.


A copy of this half terms home learning grid is in your child homework book and on the home learning section of the website. Learning can be recorded in any format in addition to your homework book (e.g photos, models etc). A copy of the homework grid can also be found in the Year 2 home learning section on the website.


Our online blog page will be kept as up-to-date as possible, with photographs uploaded so you can see what we are getting up to! Please feel free to also have a look at our half-term overview and weekly timetable (in the curriculum section).


If you have any questions, queries or problems throughout the year then please feel free to come and see me or a member of our team at the end of the school day.


Thank you for your support!
