Welcome to the F2 Class Page!


The children have settled in really well to F2 and we are really impressed with how hard they are all working.


This class page is a great way of you seeing  how 'Learning comes alive' in our class. 


Be sure to check our class page frequently to see what we have been learning about.

History Week


Our focus this week was "The Year We Were Born"


Children in F2 were born between September 2015 and August 2016. We learnt about many things that happened during this year such as:


  • Watching a football match from the year we were born and finding out who some of the players were
  • Watching adverts from the year we were born
  • Learning about who the Prime Minister was the year we were born 
  • Listening to music from the year we were born
  • Finding out about the Rio Olympics which happened in the year we were born



We also looked at our baby photos. We discussed what had changed since the year we were born and what we could do when we were a baby.


Here is what we noticed:


"I was born five years ago" 


"Babies drink the bottle - some milk."


"I had no teeth so we we can't talk"


"When I was a baby I was grabbing people's food and crawling."


"When I was a baby, mummy was holding me because I didn't know how to walk."


"My mummy born me. I was in my mummy's tummy then she rocked me."




During 'Road Safety Week' we learnt about the importance of staying safe when out and about. We learnt that we need to "STOP, LOOK and LISTEN."

We decorated biscuits to raise money for 'Children in Need'. We spread icing using a spoon and then decorated with sweets or chocolate. Some of us used our fine motor skills to cut strawberry laces onto our decorated biscuit. They tasted delicious and very sweet!

We have been learning about the festival of Diwali. We created our own Rangoli patterns using chalk and Numicon shapes. We watched the story of Rama and Sita which explains the origin of Diwali and used the stick puppets to act out the story. We also made Diwali cards in the mark-making area.
