John Hellins Primary School

Being the best we can be


Edison Class

In Class Edison, we learn through a range of exciting projects. This term I am very excited to announce Class Edison’s new topic will be Thunder Bolts and Lightning, Very Very Frightening! It’s going to be an amazing term and I believe the children will have an enjoyable experience over the next 11 weeks. Our classroom has been divided into sections: An excellent reading area complete with a beach, an Arctic area, The Autumn Room and rainbow corner. We will be looking at how the weather impacts our everyday lives and making our own volcanoes using paper-mache.


We teach literacy through our project, with many opportunities for the children to write, developing their grammar, punctuation and spelling. Our book units this term link closely to circus and carnival themed stories.

Mathematics is also linked to our project and covers the curriculum for Year 2. We teach maths in practical and exciting ways to deepen the children's understanding. We also make good use of the Forest Schools area for maths, literacy and project. I believe outside learning gives children a fantastic opportunity to explore and be creative and so where possible, reading stories and creating magical characters will take place within the forest school.
