Welcome to Class 2!


Welcome back everyone! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break. We are back and raring to go with our new Spring topic... Old & New. We will be comparing old and new toys, inventions, education & the school system, children's working lives and we will also be learning about the famous Florence Nightingale when we look at Hospitals today and during the Victorian era.


if you have any old (inexpensive) objects that would fit in nicely with our topic please let us know before allowing your child to bring them in to share.


Thank you for your continuing support


Miss Whitwell, Mrs Dunsford, Miss Hatley & Mrs Clark

We kick started our Old & New topic this term by looking at toys! We have had a chance to play with a mixture of Victorian era toys and other toys created within the last 100 years.

Look in our photo's above to see what we got up to!


Dominos! 1

On Friday 8th December a Big Rig truck came to North Crescent.

Our site manager, Mr Hutson, opened up the gates for the truck to come onto the playground at 9:30am. Each class had the opportunity to see the vehicle up close, to touch the tyres and the grill...the teachers even had the chance to sit in the drivers seat! What an amazing morning of writing we have achieved thanks to the Big Rig and it's owner! Honk Honk!!
