Class 2 - Mrs Sturrock

Class 2 - Mrs Sturrock

Welcome to Class 2's page. We have a fun and exciting curriculum planned for this year. We enjoy being creative and encourage independence. We love helping the children to learn about the world around us and enjoy off-site visits and welcome visitors, helping the children to be aspirational in gaining a deeper and long lasting understanding through first hand experiences. We have an amazing team of people to help us in Class 2 - Mrs Fedyszyn, Mrs Bell, Mrs Herbert and Mrs House. The children are encouraged to have aspirational expectations for themselves, striving hard to fulfil their true potential! Like each and every year, this year is set to be a busy one. Keep checking the school website and our class blog for newsletters and updates on our latest adventures! Mrs Fedyszyn puts fantastic effort into keeping our blog up to date - take a moment each week to have a peek!

We started the year off with a trip to Wollaton Hall where we were introduced to Mary Anning. Children learnt the story of Mary Anning and her interest in ‘curiosities’.  What did people believe about the world before Mary Anning’s discovery of the Ichthyosaurus fossil?  How did her aspirational thinking and determination change the future for the better?  Let’s find out! 

In Science, we will explore how baby mammals grow from a baby to fully grown. We explore the basic needs of all animals, including dinosaurs, and we will learn new vocabulary including herbivore, carnivore and omnivore. Children will also learn how animals either adapt to their environment or become extinct.  Comparing our measurements to dinosaurs sizes will be an exciting moment in our learning journey.

During the topic, we will remember the names of skeleton bones  and learn how these protect, support and move within our amazing bodies. To help us learn about having a balanced diet, we will explore ‘a healthy plate’.

Parents - How can you help?  Regular reading with your child and having a discussion about what they read is invaluable - keep it lighthearted and fun.  You are warmly invited to share a story or a bit of poetry with Class 2 - please let one of the team know whenyou are free.

Remember, you are welcome to make an appointment to speak to any of us if you have any queries or concerns.
