John Hellins Primary School

Being the best we can be


Class 2

In Class 2, we learn through a range of exciting projects. This term I am very excited to announce Class 2 will be learning about London…one of the most exciting cities in the world! Our classroom has been divided into sections: The Great Fire of London (With an excellent reading area), royalty, and modern transport our learning will fit in with these units. We will look into the history of London, looking at British culture too.

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 London as a city and The Great Fire of London.

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.
