Happy Easter Fox Class! Check out the Easter link if you need any ideas or activities to do in the holidays.
Hello foxes! I hope you are all keeping safe and well. It has been lovely to see your photos in the gallery, keep them coming as they really cheer me up! Are you doing the Joe Wicks workout every morning? I'm not aching as much as I did a couple of days ago so I think I'm getting fitter My favourite move is the Spiderman one, what's yours?
Remember to keep checking Mathletics and Purple Mash. For some of you lucky foxes you can hear my voice on a purple mash spelling test just in case you're missing me There's also a 2do where I'd love you to write me a message so I know what you've been getting up to. I've recorded a message for you on there too! There is now a new 'Fox Class Blog' on purple mash, you will find it in the sharing section. Please leave a message for the whole of Fox Class, we'd love to hear from you. In purple mash you need to go to Sharing --> Shared Blogs --> Fox Class Blog and then click on the green cross to get writing. Or just click on this link here https://www.purplemash.com/blog#/app/blog/5e825ac9517fef3ce6238559/
Purple Mash, Mathletics, TT Rockstars, Numbots and Supermovers links can all be found below. Use your mathletics login for TTRS and numbots.

Hopefully there is enough there to keep your brains active! Looking forward to seeing you when you return! xx
Welcome to the Fox Class page!
Fox Class is the name of our Year 2 class. Mrs Deeks and Mrs Mizen are the teachers and Miss Rutterford is our teaching assistant. We currently have Mrs Coleman working with Foxes on Fridays.
So far this year we have enjoyed our Time Travellers topic learning about famous people and events in history. We enjoyed the topic on Toys where we compared toys from the past to present day and we had a great time learning about where we live and looking at what Great Barton was like in the past. Some children did some fantastic extra research at home, well done!
Our current topic is called 'Making a Difference' where we will be learning about significant people in the past who made a difference. We have started to learn about the work of Florence Nightingale and the home research is already coming in! We shall also be learning about Mary Seacole and Rosa Parks. Check out Purple Mash for 2Dos related to what we are learning in the classroom.
Year 2 children are required to take the National Year 2 tests in May (see information leaflet below).
At the end of the year, we will inform you about your child's performance in the tests and report an overall teacher assessment grade.
Everyone should now have a red spelling book in their book bag where spellings are added weekly by your child. Spare spelling strips are in the going home box if your child forgets to stick theirs in! We have our spelling test every Monday. Please practice as often as you can. There are a lot of spelling rules we have to learn in Year 2! Each week they will be displayed outside the classroom door, feel free to take a photo of them to help you remember.
By the end of Year 2 we aim to know our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Feel free to print off these games to play to help practise!
Now your child is in year 2 we are trying to encourage more independence. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday they are reminded to change their reading book as soon as they come in. Please let us know via the reading log if your child is finding the level too easy or too hard and we will move them accordingly.
