Spring Term

English

This term we have been looking at Non-Chronological reports about The Victorians.  We have found it very interesting reading and writing about what it was like to go to school all those years ago.  Soon we will be writing our own reports on life in The Victorian Times.

History

This has been a particularly exciting time for Class Two as we have been finding out all about The Victorian times.  We have been finding out about what it was like to live in the Victorian times and how it is different to now. We particularly enjoyed learning about schools in the Victorian times, how and what they would write on and with, the subjects, the strict teachers and the punishments!  We are very glad that Miss Birtles, Miss Seton-Jones and Miss Rothwell do not hit us with canes! We are really looking forward to our trip to Quarry Bank Mill in a few weeks!

RE

At the start of this new term we looked at ‘The Good News’ and read stories about those that Jesus helped.  We have thought and talked about the importance of helping others and saying ‘Thank you’.

At this time of year we are now thinking about Lent.  We have talked about the time Jesus spent in the desert and discussed how difficult it must be to give up the things you like the most.  We have then talked about how during Lent we should make positive changes to our lives and make more time to do things that are important to us that make us better people.

In class 2 we enjoy reflective worship where we sit in a circle and each person has their turn to answer a question or discussion related to the subject. We listen to one another and pray together whilst listening to relaxing music.

World Book Day

On March 4th we celebrated World Book Day. Our theme was time travel so we all got dressed up as our chosen character/person and came to school. We started off the day with a parade in the hall with the rest of the school to show off our costumes. We then worked in houses and had a quiz all about different books and authors. We then went back into our classes and had a day of activities! Every body looked wonderful and we had a fantastic, fun filled day!
