Blue Base

We are a Y2 class and our teachers are Miss Jones and Mrs Downham.  Mrs Hinsley will teach in Blue Base on a Wednesday morning. Our teaching assistants are Miss Middleton-Lund and Miss Woodruff.

We have lots of volunteer helpers in our class, including parents.

We go on lots of visits and have lots of visitors in to school to help us to learn.  We love to learn outdoors.

On our visits we have been to local museums and galleries, Diggerland, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and we will visit Whirlow Hall Farm for a residential each summer.

This year our topics include:

  • Autumn 1  -  How would you like to travel?

  • Autumn 2  -  What would your toys do if they came to life?

  • Spring 1  -  Why is the desert hot and the Arctic cold?

  • Spring 2  -  If you were an artist what would you create?

  • Summer 1  -  What would you find in a cave?

  • Summer 2  -  What makes me great?

Blue Base have P.E every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Children require shorts and a t-shirt and a pair of pumps for indoor P.E. Outdoor P.E. is on a Wednesday in the warmer months. Please make sure your child has an outdoor P.E kit. This can be jogging bottoms and a jumper. Earrings must be removed for P.E. If your child cannot remove these independently then please can you do so before they come to school.

Please return Learning Logs and spellings by Wednesday, new tasks will be sent home on Friday.

Please make sure your child’s reading record are in their book bag every day.

Please don’t hesitate to speak to Miss Jones or Mrs Downham before or after school if you have any queries.

Thank you
