Beech Class

Welcome to Year 2 and our class page!

Here you will be able to get a little look at some of the learning which we get up to each and every day!  We are a really hard working class and love to learn new things.  We work hard to ‘grow our brains’ each day and challenge yourselves to reach our huge potentials.

Our teacher is Miss Barker and we also have the help of  Miss Burrells and Mrs Manning throughout the week.

Class Dojo

Please download the app ‘Class Dojo’ to connect with our class.  Dojo is a great way to keep up to date with all the action in Year 2.  Our teacher likes to share lots of photos with our parents so they can see what we get up to throughout the week.  Also Miss Barker will send our regular reminders as well as our ‘Friday News’ which tells you who is our ‘star of the week’  who is the dojo winner of the week and any other exciting news!


During this term our topic is

The Time Travelling Child

where we will be going on a historical journey through the past looking at the changes which have occurred over the last 100 years. First we will look at a topic familiar to us, namely toys.  We will investigate the similarities and differences between toys in the past and the toys we enjoy today.  Also we will compare the toys which are played with by children who were from wealthy families and those from poorer households.

From here we will look at the changes in homes and technology as well as how life have evolved in the last century.
