Welcome to Class 2!


Please take a look at some of our super maths work. We have been representing numbers, comparing numbers, learning our number bonds and learning to add and subtract. We have also been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. 


We have been learning about the creation story. We created stained glass windows to reflect this. 


This half term our topic title is 'Why do we like to be beside the seaside?' Through enquiry-based learning we will be finding out about

  • the Titanic
  • continents and oceans
  • the UK and the seas that surround it
  • Bridlington in the past and now.

Below is a copy of our curriculum newsletter for our topic. 

Sticky Knowledge Mats help us to remember key facts about our topics. Below is a copy of our recent one.

Spring 1 - Our class trip to Eureka! 

Autumn 2 - Why can't penguins live near the equator?

Autumn 1 - Why don't dinosaurs make good pets?


The children have two P.E. lessons per week where they are taught basic skills such as throwing and catching and how to apply these to team games. The children are also taught dance, gymnastics and athletics. 


This half term our P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday and Thursday.


From time to time we also invite specialist coaches in to school to teach the children for either one off lessons or a series of lessons. This term we are learning Taekwondo. 

During the summer term the children are given the opportunity to represent Bugthorpe School in team competitions such as three in a bucket. 



We expect children to read regularly at home as part of our school's  homework policy.


Phonics homework is also added weekly to the children's Seesaw account. This can be completed and returned online or printed out to be completed and handed in to school. 


Depending on our topic, children may also be given extended half termly challenges such as a researching and presenting information or designing and creating a model.
