Welcome to class 2I!
Our class teacher is Mr Irving. If you have any questions or you would like to talk to him about anything, he is on the KS1 playground before and after school every day,
2I are a group of well-mannered and dedicated children, trying hard to succeed in every task put in front of them. We are kind-natured and help each other with any tasks or activities inside the classroom or outside on the yard. We are all aspire to do one thing: To be the best that we can be. We want to not only achieve our potential, but exceed it too!
We have worked extremely hard and dedicated ourselves to expand our brains and learn in new, innovative ways. This has involved lots of practical and visual learning, which we have all thoroughly enjoyed, as it has helped us through some very interesting topics.
Last half term, we became investigators, finding out if the Beatles would be famous in this day and age, as well as making our very own bands and battling each other. This term, we are investigating how we can help Mr. Claus create the best Christmas ever and have been looking at lots of toys from past generations.
In English, we have read ‘The Highway Robbery’,which we were extremely engrossed in and this term we are building anticipation for Christmas by reading ‘A Christmas Carol’, a thrilling book to get our brains racing with excitement.
Another thing that we all really enjoyed was putting on our chef hats and making pumpkin soup for Halloween.
Looking ahead, we are going to continue with our aspiration to exceed our potential and dedicate ourselves to never-ending learning.
To find out what we are learning about each half term, the Year 2 curriculum plans can be found here.
Each half term we have a learning reflection event to celebrate the work we have been doing. Our parents and carers are invited into school so that we can show them what we have been learning.
Parents and carers in 2I are also connected to school through ‘Seesaw’. This means that they can enjoy watching their children’s progress every day.
In Year 2, we also work on developing good learning habits. You can see them all by clicking on this link: GCPS Learning Habits
