Second Class


In Second Class, we are reading Matilda. We have been using ‘Role on the Wall’ to record what we find out about her character. We look forward to adding to it as the story goes on.

Today’s Story

‘After the Fall’ (How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again) was a huge hit with 2nd Class today. An inspiring tale about over-coming fears. I won’t spoil the ending but it was a real special moment for the class. The look on their little faces was priceless!

Our ‘Mouldy Bread’ experiment

2nd Class did a mouldy bread experiment to test where germs are and how effective washing our hands with soap and water is versus using hand sanitiser.

The results are in………..

The bread that was wiped on surfaces turned out the worst…Ewww

The bread touched by washed hands appeared better than the one touched with sanitised hands..

After deep discussions we decided that while it is good to sanitise your hands, nothing beats a proper hand-wash using soap and water!!


Water Safety – First and Second Class

As the weather warms up and restrictions are lifted, many of us will be heading to the beach or rivers. Therefore it is very important that your child knows the basics of water safety. You can watch the presentation with your child first and then try the online games in the link below. Have fun!
