We are a Year 2 class.

Our Teacher is Miss Guarraci.


Our topic this term has been ‘Let it burn’. Over the summer holidays we made houses out of cardboard and when we started back in our new class we set them alight in a fire pit on the playground. We really enjoyed it, and when a fireman came in to speak to us about fire safety he was so impressed with our knowledge on being safe around fire. We have learnt a lot about The Great Fire of London and how it started. Did you know it spread so fast because the houses were made of wood and were so close together? We are looking forward to understanding more about Guy Fawkes next half term!

In Science, we have been learning all about animals. We have learnt about the different types of animals and know that Carnivores eat meat, Herbivores eat plants and vegetables and Omnivores eat both! We are now looking at different Habitats.

As a class we have really enjoyed creating a love for reading environment in the classroom. We have also been working hard to do this at home, the more times we read the higher up the class reading beanstalk we can climb! We love reading independently, with friends and listening to stories!
