Welcome to 2D’s class page!
We are a curious class of 30 children with Miss Durkin as our teacher and Ms Newman as our Learning Support Assistant in the mornings!
Our classroom is very exciting, we have a fantastic art area where we love to make, colour and paint; a sand and water area, a construction area which even has hard hats for us to wear while building and a lovely class library full of books that we love to read.
We work very hard and love seeing our work displayed on our boards in the classroom; this helps us learn as we can use them in our lessons to extend our knowledge. Every Friday, we have Topic day where we learn about our Topic through IT, Art, Writing and games. Our Topic is ‘Adventures Ahoy!’- A geographical Topic that will help us learn all about the world around us. We will be having a special dress up day on 30th September where we will be dressing up as pirates, boats, parrots and adventurers so keep an eye on our class page for photos of our wonderful costumes.
In Year 2 we learn Music, its great fun learning with Mr Watson. We learn Music for 45 minutes on a Thursday morning. Mr Watson has lots of fun activities and games for us to play to help us learn!
On Wednesdays this term, we will have Tennis with Islington coaches in the morning and on Fridays we have P.E. with Mr.Vijay, our specialist PE teacher at Sacred Heart, so we must remember to bring in our P.E. kits on these days! If we don’t, we are unable to take part in the fun lessons; it is either in the hall or outside. It is also important that all of our PE kits have our names on them, so they do not get mixed up with other PE kits. We keep our P.E. kits in school until half term (unless they need a wash before then).
Also on Fridays, we do Computing class every Friday morning with Mr. Kearney. We are looking forward to using technology in the classroom!
Our first assembly in Year 2 will be on Tuesday 1st November and will be all about Saints.
More information and photos of our learning will be put up on the website throughout the year so make sure to check our class page regularly to see what we have been up-to. In 2D we love learning together and hope to have a fun and enjoyable year.
