Class 2K 2019 - 2020

Mrs Kirke

Welcome to Class 2K

Mrs Kirke


These are our 'school rules'. We have talked about what each one means and how we can demonstrate each of these in school.


We have talked about how they link to our school moto:

Remember: Success comes through personal effort.


In Class 2K we learn by exploring , sharing ideas, being active, developing our thinking skills and persevering.


We certainly have a lot of exciting learning planned for the coming term! Keep checking this page, the news items and the gallery for updates. Scroll to the bottom of the page for key information.

Today was our visit to Formby Point. We visited Formby as part of our Geography work on coasts and Science work on habitats. The children had an amazing time and I was really impressed with how they all conducted themselves out of school. A really big thank you to all the parents who helped......we couldn't go these wonderful visists without you! Here are a few pics (hopefully you can spot the red squirrel) but there will be more to follow in the gallery soon! 



Friday 5th July 2019

The children visited Reception this morning and read their 'Magic Faraway Stories'. The reception children loved them. Check out the gallery for pics!


Friday 28th June 2019

Today the children have spent the day working on their design technology project. This morning they worked with Mrs Tatham and some Year 6 children to produce bread they had designed in class. They were very excited and all worked extremely hard! I am sure by now you have seen, if not tasted their bread. It looked and tasted great! They did an amazing job!!! Check out the gallery for the finished products.




Thursday 27th June 2019

This week the children have finished writing their own 'Magic Faraway Stories' and are in the process of putting them into an illustrated booklet. They are hoping to share them with reception children next week.


Friday 14th June 2019

As you will have read on the newsletter, we will no longer be sending homework for children to complete. Every Thursday we will put some 'Talk Topics' on the website under the news section. These will be in the form of questions that you could ask your children to encourage them to talk about their learning in school and extend it further. We will no longer provide children with spellings to practise for a spelling test on a Friday. However, we will continue to put spellings that we have been covering in school on Spelling Shed, so they can work on these at home if they choose. 


Thursday 13th June 2019

The children have had their first session of 'Tag Rugby' with a sports coach. They had an amazing time learning how to pass and intercept a rugby ball.

Friday 26th April 2019

Today the children had a go at paper weaving. They learnt about 'warp' and 'weft' and experimented with different ways of weaving the paper. They are now ready to produce their final piece in the style of Kente cloth. They will be choosing their own colours and  prefered weaving pattern. They then will be adding black or white to their design. Below are some samples of their paper weaving.




Tuesday 16th April 2019

Today the children began to add final touches to their vehicles and add their axles and wheels. The next thing will be to check that their vehicle matches the design criteria as well as making sure that the wheels turn......and stay on!

Tuesday 12th March 2019      

In art today the children have worked extremely hard and produced some fantastic pieces of work!  The children were practising the skill of overlaying using strips of paper exploring the different shapes and patterns they could create. They had to look back at previous work and decide which colours they felt worked well together and then decide how they were going to put them together. They explored lots of different options and even decided whther they wanted to make some of the strips to have a bumpy or spiked edge. Have a look in the gallery to see photos of their work.

The children have had an amazing day to day. First of all can I say that all of your children looked absolutely fabulous in their costumes today, I don't think I have ever seen so many different costumes in one class!

After register this morning we had time to look at each others costumes and guess who we had all come dressed up as. After this we had an assembly. The children chose to perform one of our old talk for writing texts, 'The Manchester Ridgeback' (photo below). We even performed it on the stage!

We then had a visit from our link class 5B. We all talked about our costumes and shared our favourite books (see gallery for these photos).

In the afternnon we did a World Book Day quiz and the children had chance to re-create their favoutire book in mini form.

What a fabulous day we have had! Thank you to everyone for taking part.

Tuesday 22nd January 2019

Today the children explored how an axle works using cardboard templates, wheels and a range of materials for axles. They discovered that: 

1. The wheel needed to be attached tightly to the axle and the axle free to turn.

2. The axle could be fixed and the wheels turn on the axle.

See the gallery for some pictures of the children carrying out this investigation.
