Autumn Term 2019
Year 2 is led by Louise Swindlehurst and Ben Brown, the class teachers, along with the help and support from Cathy Noble and Karen Garstang.
Well Year 2 have started the new term running! We are loving our Countryside Explorers and have already been on two trips. We have walked up to the top of Orrest Head onto the Footprint Building and back through St Catherine's Wood on the hunt for the big bad wolf and Little Red Riding Hood. On a very wet and autumnal day we enjoyed a walk up and around High Dam and then visited Stott Park Bobbin Mill and learned lots about local history. We have enjoyed a visit to the library van and selected lots of new high quality stories and non fiction books for our classroom.
Year 2 have impressed us with their fabulous writing already - planning and writing their own story based on Little Red Riding Hood and recounting our visit to Stott Park Bobbin Mill.
We've got lots to look forward to; Harvest Festival, Nativity and beginning to read our new story - The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith.
