Year 2 and Year 3
Whales Class is wonderful because it has lots of resources to learn and play with
Our classroom is spacious and organised.
We love Year 2 because there are so many interesting things to learn and there are lots of amazing stories to read.
We love learning practically and using our outdoor space.
We work hard to follow our class rules and values of perseverance, respect and showing good manners.
We aim to develop Growth Mindset and to always try our best so we can get onto the ‘Superstar’ reward chart and earn a whole class reward.

We had great fun this afternoon learning to sculpt clay onto a tree. We have been fascinated by our Enchanted Woods story and we were so excited to create these outside!
We received a special letter from our woodland fairy. She had ripped her dress and wondered if we could design and make her a new one! We used different materials to cut, shape and join them! Lots of perseverance and determination shown!
We designed, made and tested different materials. We worked in groups to make a bucket suitable to hold water that could help us put out the Great Fire of London. We had great fun testing these!

We found out that it was believed Thomas Farriner was baking cakes for the King when the fire started! We worked together to follow the recipe. Delicious!
Today, we enjoyed our trip at Gressenhall with Stibbard. We had to help Cinderella and Jack (from Jack and the Beanstalk) find all of the special objects from the fairytales that the Wicked Witch had hidden! The children were exceptionally behaved and had a fantastic day!
