Week 1

Welcome to Class 2!

The children have had a great first week in Class 2. It was lovely to hear all about their summer holidays. This week, the children have all been busy getting to know and settling into their new classroom and outside area. They have also been practicing and recapping their counting skills in maths and letter formation in English. I have been impressed with the work that all of the children have produced this week and enjoyed seeing their brilliant handwriting! I look forward to seeing this continue during the year.

We began our transportation history topic this week, where we looked at how different modes of transport have changed over time and created a timeline to show this.


  • ·PE lessons are on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school labelled with their name.
  • ·Please record your daily reading with your child in their reading record book.
  • Water bottles, as in Class 1 should be in school daily.
  • Please can any fruit for snack time be labelled to avoid any confusion.
  • ·Homework and spellings will start on Tuesday. Please refer to the letter given out on Thursday, which will provide more details about the new home learning system. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this.

Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Miss Leake.

Class 2 Week ending 29th June

Thank you to; Mrs Fisher, Miss Cavaliere, Mrs Fletcher, Mrs Burbidge, Mrs Moore Haines, Mrs Thake, Mrs Jones for helping to make our trip to Woburn amazing in Class 2 !!  We had a lovely day and the weather held out. We saw lots of animals and learnt lots of interesting facts! e.g. an owl has 14 bones in its neck and not all of them are nocturnal.


Friday the 7th July  is Pyjama day. Outdoor shoes are needed for playtime but they can wear slippers for inside. They may bring a teddy and we ask for a donation of £1. The school council have chosen for this money to be spilt between Parkinsons UK and Cancer Research.


We have had a very busy week in class 2 learning about how to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes and written inventions for Wallace and Gromit in English. We've had another fantastic week of doing 'Big Write'. The children produced amazing work.


Next week we will be learning about how to write instructions in English and drawing block graphs in maths.

Thank you

Friday 22nd Apri

A big welcome to Ollie who has joined Class 2 this week. We hope that you enjoy our class and settle in really quickly (Umarah). All of Class 2 went on a school trip on Tuesday to the Natural History Museum in Tring. On the way there we passed lots of other coaches. (Kye). When we were on the trip we did a trail in the afternoon and we had lunch outside (Elliot). At the museum there were lots of animals and bones, and my favourite was the little mice (Megan). When we had lunch we sat at some picnic tables outside and in the museum the exhibits were really interesting (John). When we went to the museum, first we had a workshop and we learnt about how the dinosaurs arrived on Earth and then eventually were killed by a meteor (Ruby). Our teacher, Hannah let us hold lots of different fossils – some were teeth, some were plants and some were of animals. (Ruby). In the museum, there was quite a lot of interesting animals and lots of people had favourites. My favourites were the snakes and the hedgehogs. (Ella). On Thursday it was the Queen’s birthday and when we had our milk, we talked about what the Queen does for her birthday. When the Queen has her birthday they sing the National Anthem (Kushi). In Class 2 we were learning about how communication works. Mrs Nichols said in the olden days that sometimes messages would have been sent on horseback or by drum or smoke signals. (Ameena). Yesterday Mrs Nichols taught us and we did some maths about fractions. We were trying really hard to make some notes to help us find the answers accurately (Tom). In PE we went to the field and we are starting to practise for Sports Day. Today we were doing running and jumping skills and my favourite part was the jumping (Bobby). Mrs Nichols says please make sure that all girls have a spare pair of socks in their PE kits, as they will not be allowed to do PE in their tights. It is also still a little chilly whilst we walk over to the field, so please remember to bring fleeces with you. Many thanks
