Class 2 Information 2023/24
Class 2 is made up of Year 1 and Year 2 children and is situated in a bright and well-equipped classroom with stunning views across the Riverford fields. The class is taught by Miss Foster. Mrs Richardson covers Miss Foster's out of class time on Friday mornings and Mr Tanner will also teach the children for PE once a week. The class is supported by Mrs Drew.
Our topic webs show more detail of what we are getting up to and will be posted on this page throughout the year. We like to make as much of our learning as practical as possible using apparatus, visual aids and lots of oral rehearsal before writing or recording to ensure we feel secure. We work with a ‘have a go’ attitude and treat making mistakes as a positive way of learning.
I hope you look forward to seeing our learning adventures this year! Please check back on this page and Facebook for Class 2 updates and photos.
Class 2 PE days are Monday and Thursday. Children should wear their PE kit into school on these days.

14.11.23 - Visit from Cultural Champion,Souad
Class 2 enjoyed welcoming Cultural Champion, Souad, into class today. She shared lots of knowledge and experience about her Islamic faith. The children listened well and asked questions. Some of us chose to try a traditional female headscarf on, we looked fantastic.
31.10.23 - What is geography all about?
Class 2 enjoyed their first geography lesson today where they learnt that geography is the study of people and places. We also explored physical and human geography and the children sorted photographs into two groups. They loved writing on the tables to do this!
17.10.23 - An artistic response to the Creation!
Class 2 had a very arty RE/FaB lesson this afternoon. We have been learning about the Creation story and how Christians believe it took God 7 days to create the universe. We know that God was busy for 6 days and then rested on the seventh to appreciate his hard work. We represented this using drawings and painted what 'day 7' looked like to us using watercolours.
12.10.23 - A musical afternoon with Kip!
Class 2 enjoyed a musical afternoon with Kip practising their pieces for our musical showcase performance tomorrow.
02.10.23 - Trip to Sparkwell Orchard
The Class 2 children had a fantastic time at Sparkwell Orchard this afternoon. We learnt all about the process of making apple juice and had a tour of the orchard - meeting some of its vegetable and animal residents! A big thank you to Francesca and Keefe for having us.
Art - Exploring and experimenting tools and techniques using clay
After looking at sculptures by Anthony Gormley, Henry Moore and local artist Anne-Marie Scott, we explored and experimented using tools and techniques with clay. We will apply these skills to creating our own clay sculptures soon.
