We are Pandora Class!
We love to think, try and explore.
Welcome to our class page. Pandora Class currently has 28 pupils. We are supported in our learning by our teacher Mr Richards and our learning support assistants Mrs Smith and Mr Haimes.
Have a look at some of our creatures and plants from other worlds below.
May in Year 2 means it's SATs time! For information about the assessments please follow the link below.
Moving into year 2, homework will increase slightly! As ever, reading at home is incredibly important and should be done as much as possible. It does not just have to be school books - it could be reading things from the environment (eg. cereal boxes, food tins, drink bottles, on the tv, road signs - any form of writing) or magazines and books you may have at home.
Alongside reading, there will be tasks set in the blue homework books to be completed and there will be weekly spellings to learn which will be tested on Fridays. If you get maximum spellings right for 5 weeks running, you get a special spellings ribbon!!
This year Mathletics homework should be done at home if possible or during lunchtimes in the computer room. The homework task will pop up when you login to mathletics which you must complete before moving onto any other task on the website. The link can to the mathletics website can be found below and login cards can be found in the back of your reading journals.
To ensure homework is finished every week, any uncompleted piece of homework will be done during golden time!
Weymouth Sea Life Centre
We had: "an amazing day" "awesome" "so good" "the best day ever" to quote a few of the children's thoughts from the day! Check out the slide show below for some of the best pictures from the day.
Term 6 - Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!
Summer is here (even if the weather doesn't agree!!) so Pandora class take their learning to the seaside. We will be visiting Weymouth Sea Life Centre in week 1 to kick start our topic and to give inspiration for Art Fortnight which will take place over the first two weeks of term and will be all about 'Other Worlds' (ours being an underwater planet). We will design and creatures and plants to form part of a Key Stage display. To make these we will sketch ideas and use junk to build models. All of what we build during Art Fortnight will be on display at the Art exhibition on Friday 23rd June.

Term 2 - Sparkle and Shine
This term our topic is all about things that sparkle and shine. Firstly, we will learn and retell the story 'The Metal Friend'. We will build on last years learning about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night and we will celebrate Remembrance. After that our learning will move towards Winter and sparkly festivities.
Term 1: Are two people ever completely alike?
Our question for this term is: Are two people ever completely alike? We will be looking at similarities and differences in our appearance, what we like and how we do things. Also over the course of this term there will be two key themes. The first we will focus on is: What makes an effective learner? We will be thinking about us as individual learners, how we like to learn and what we can do to help ourselves become independent.
The second theme of this term will be Black History month. Throughout October we will learn about the lives of significant black individuals; in particular Mary Seacole.
