 Hello everyone and

welcome to our class page!

Cardiff Class is an exciting place to learn! 

In our class, we have thirty brilliant, enthusiastic, talented and hardworking children, who are supported in their learning by an outstanding Year 2 team and very supportive parents. 

Our class values of willingness, ambition, resilience, respect, enthusiasm and never giving up, permeate the life of our school, with staff, pupils and parents working and learning together, sharing a common aim for all our children to be the best that they can be in our journey of building tomorrow, today. 

I hope our class page gives you a flavour of life in Cardiff Class! 

With best wishes,

Mrs Savage, Mrs Bibi and Mrs Khan

Week 5

Year 2 Trip to St Paul’s Cathedral

This half term Year 2 have been learning all about The Great Fire of London and what an incredible trip we had recently! Year 2 embarked on a breath-taking adventure to visit the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral. The day was filled with excitement, wonder, and great behaviour.

The tour was simply amazing! We explored every nook and cranny of the stunning cathedral, learning about its rich history and architectural marvels. We even had the opportunity to climb up to the very top of the building, where we were rewarded with panoramic views of the cathedral below. It was an experience none of our students will ever forget.

But what made this trip truly special was the exemplary behaviour displayed by our pupils. Their conduct was nothing short of exceptional. They listened attentively to our guide, asked intelligent questions, and showed respect towards the cathedral and its surroundings. It was wonderful to witness how well-behaved and courteous our students were throughout the entire excursion.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the children for their outstanding behaviour and our amazing parent volunteers. They not only represented our school admirably, but they also made the trip enjoyable and memorable for everyone involved. Well done!

Science

We did a group investigation at our tables to enquire which material was the most waterproof. We tested paper, card and plastic. We concluded that plastic was the most waterproof and that is why umbrellas and raincoats are made from this material.

This week we have been getting to know our new PE coach, Josh. We have been practicing our dodging skills by playing different games such as Stuck in the Mud and Bulldog.

These skills will later be transferred into bigger games like Football, Basketball etc. 

 

Week 1: Transition Week

As a class we came up with some rules that we should have in the classroom to help be the best class that we can be. To sign our class charter we wrote our goals and added this to our class charter.
