Welcome to Year 2 – Star Class
"Laugh often, dream big, reach for the stars!" Don Williams, Jr.
Welcome to Star Class, a group of 30 pupils all eager and enthusiastic to grow, learn and have fun together. My name is Mrs Helliwell and I will be teaching Year 2 alongside Mrs Horridge and Miss Rothwell. We look forward to getting to know each of the children and supporting them to achieve their potential.
Star class have an exciting year ahead! We will start by exploring the Artic, under the gaze of the Northern lights, to help wolf find his way home. We will then become historians digging into Whitworth's past and looking at the Taylor family, a family of extremely successful and famous surgeons and medics. Our ‘World Kitchen’ topic will allow us to journey around the 7 continents, tasting a variety of traditional dishes through our cookery demonstrations which will be showcased in a class cookery book. Finally we will conduct our own fieldwork as we explore living things and their habitats which will hopefully lead to a class trip to a nearby farm or zoo.
We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.
If you have any worries or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email on firstname.lastname@example.org
