Welcome to Class 2

Reception

Welcome to Class 2’s page!

We hope you find this useful and informative.

 

Using our Literacy learning

This half term, we have been learning about different types of transport.

We have been reading ‘Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car’.

We have enjoyed drawing our own text maps and performing the story to each other.

Topic Work

We have continued to observe and explore the weather and the changing seasons.

We have been talking about and searching for signs of winter, and had fun experimenting with and exploring the ice and frost. 

We designed our own motorcars and used the recycled boxes to build a car with a friend. Next, we are going to paint them!

We also worked as a team to build a car outside using the large construction resources.

We have continued to observe and explore the weather and the changing seasons.

We have been talking about Spring and looking for signs of new growth.   

Our learning in RE this term

Our current topic is ‘Growing’. We explored how we have changed and grown, and shared pictures of ourselves when we were babies.

We will be learning about how we can grow to be more like Jesus. We wrote a promise on a love heart and hung it on a Lenten tree.

We enjoyed making clay crosses to remind us of Good Friday.

We heard the story of ‘The Presentation of Jesus’.

We used the small world toys to act it out and showed how well we recognised the characters and key events from the story.

We are looking forward to our new topic, which is called ‘Meals’.

We will be learning about how the parish family gathers for the Eucharist (Mass), Jesus’ special meal.

We are becoming more confident when planning and delivering our own child-led liturgies with Mrs O’Neill.

Our learning about other faiths

We enjoyed learning out Judaism last term, and participated in a virtual meeting on Teams with Rabbi Zvi.

He told us lots about Judaism and told us the story of Passover.
