Welcome to Squirrels Class!



Squirrels class is made up for Year 2 and Year 3.

Mrs Penny is our Class Teacher. 

Mrs Perry helps us every morning and afternoon and Mr Lathan helps us with PE.

We are so lucky to have so much help!




 What we've been up to in Squirrels class!



We will systematically update our photo display showing some of the things we have been up to in squirrels class over the last few weeks.

Keep checking back to see the exciting things we have been doing!






What are we learning?

Every day, we have Maths and English. In Maths this year, we will be working really hard on adding and subtracting more difficult numbers as well as learning shapes, times tables and other tricky things. In English, we will be enjoying writing stories, instruction tests and rhyming poems!

Every day, we practise our beautiful handwriting or Miss Bedford hears us read.

We love being active when we are learning and we are given lots of fun activities outside or exploring around school.




Our Topics

 Our first topic is called "Extreme Earth!" . It's a Geography based topic looking at the Earth, extreme weather and disasters. 

Here are some things we will be covering in this topic:

  • World maps
  • Layers of the Earth.
  • Hurricanes
  • Tornados
  • Volcanoes. 


If you know anyone who has a specialism in this area or who has been travelling around the world and would like to come in and talk to us about their experience, please contact Miss Bedford. We always love to have visitors in to learn from.






Here are the things you need to remember each day of the week.

Monday - Spellings test. New spellings will be given out too! PE day.

Tuesday - Mrs Penny teaches in the morning. Today is either PE or swimming. 

Wednesday -We have Topic this afternoon.

Thursday - Nothing out of the ordinary happens today.

[Please note that swimming will begin after the October half term until Christmas and then again after the February Half term]
