Class 6 (Year 2)

Welcome to Class 6!

Flying High at Phoenix!


We have lots of fun learning exciting things in Year 2.

Our teacher is currently Miss Pember as Miss Greasley is on maternity leave and our teaching assistant is Mrs Smith. During the Autumn term we learnt lots of new and exciting topics.  In Geography, we learnt all about 'Our City' of Nottingham.  We found out all about interesting places to visit in Nottingham and wrote visitors guides for people visiting Nottingham. In Science, we learnt all about Electricity. In History we found out all about the Great fire of London.  In Art, we have been learning about patterns and doing some work on the artist Piet Mondrian. Take a look at our new gallery in the classroom. We have some brilliant artists in Class 6.


Reading - in Class 6 we love reading books... the children have been telling me about the types of books they would like in the classroom. Don't forget the book swap in the school entrance. You can come along and swap a book before or after school. It is important that the children read at home as often as possible to develop their reading skills - don't forget to put a note in your child's reading record so we can celebrate lots of reading. Who knows - the Book Wizard may decide to send us a new book...


Keep checking this page as we will be adding lots of photographs of our learning experiences!
