Year 2 - Charlotte Worthington
Charlotte Worthington class are hardworking, passionate and an enthusiastic class that have a deep love for learning!
Keep an eye out on our class page to see what we have been up to!
Our Class Name
Our Class name is taken after an Olympic gold medalist Charlotte Worthington, who has become Team GB's breakout star after winning gold with an impressive backflip in the BMX freestyle event. Charlotte has become an inspiration for our class as she fell in her first run but persevered and landed first ever front flip of 360 at a women's event. We want to aim for Gold just like Charlotte!
Our Class Presentation!
Welcome To Year 2!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely and relaxing break and are ready for Year 2. Miss. Graves and I are very excited about welcoming and settling your children into our new class. We have worked really hard in making sure our classroom environment is fun, engaging and learning focused. We have some amazing things planned for this coming year!
Autumn Term One
This half-term we will learn about the ‘The Great Fire of London’. Our class book is ‘The Tower Bridge cat’ by Tee Dobinson. We will be writing setting description based on London and also writing a newspaper article to report the horrific event. During this term we will be visited by the Derbyshire Fire and Rescue team to talk to us about the safety around fire. In our Design and Technology lessons we will be creating 3D models of buildings, thinking carefully about the importance of a stable structure. We will also be informed by our science experiment about the material which will be the most suitable materials to use for our buildings. With the help of the Fire and Rescue team we will be safely lighting them on fire to re-create the event of The Great Fire of London.
Great Fire of London!
'The Great Fire of London Experience'
have been like during that time. We tried our best to use expressions to express the feelings of some people during this disaster. Year 2 had great fun!
Our very own Great Fire of London at Meadow Farm!
that may have made people feel in 1666.
We had Sarah come in from the Fire and rescue team. She spoke to us about the importance of staying safe during a fire. She informed us about her job role. We have learnt that if we ever got caught in a fire then we must STOP! DROP! ROLL! See all the pictures and Tilly demonstrating what STOP, DROP, ROLL looks like.
Our Design and Technology project is well under way! We have been exploring different shapes to find the most stable shape for our structure. We have then experimented with different shapes to find the strongest! This information will be vital for our structures of the London building!

Our Value this week is 'Caring'. We have been thinking about all the food that we have to eat and who we can thank for it! We have been busy in our classroom creating props for our harvest assembly.
Please listen to the great performance Year 1 and 2 have given during our Harvest Assembly!
I hope you have had a lovely half-term break and are now ready for our next half-term. Thank you for the Amazing 3D models that have been completed and sent back for our classroom displays. The children were really excited to show and talk about their models in class.
Autumn Term Two
This half-term we will learn about the ‘The Gun Powder Plot’ that took place on 5th of November 1604. Our class book is ‘The Owl who was scared of the dark’ by Jill Tomlinson. We will be writing a dairy entry from the perspective of Guy Fawkes reporting back on the gunpowder plot. We will be tuning into the emotive vocabulary that can be used to enhance our dairy entries. In our art lessons we will be thinking about the patterns around us, creating rubbings from different textures and progressing to making frottage. During the next 5 weeks we will also be busy practicing for our Christmas performance!
We have been visited by Safety Seymour!
Safety Seymour is a superhero bear from outer space on a mission to teach children and their families about carbon monoxide (CO) and how to protect themselves, making homes safer.
He has recruited Year 2s to help spread the word about this dangerous gas.
Here is a link which tells you why Carbon monoxide is so dangerous and what we
can do to keep safe from it!
The Gun Powder Plot
To mark the remembrance day we have been very GREATFUL to have Jean Moss come to speak to us. Jean showed us pictures of some of her family members who had fought in the war. This made us really think about soldiers who died as individuals and the impact it may have had on their families. We showed our respect by creating a display in the remembrance of all the soldiers who lost their lives.
At 11:00 we held a whole school two-minute silence to remember the people that have died in wars around the world.
