Autumn Term 2019 

Marvellous Me!

Welcome back Class 2 to a brand new school year. I hope you have all had a fun and restful summer. I can't wait to hear what you've been up to and I am really looking forward to working with you all this year.

To kick off the new academic year, we have a brilliant new topic...

Marvellous Me!

 We are going to be finding out all about ourselves - what makes us different, how our bodies work, how to stay healthy, what we look like, why we are all so wonderful and we will also be having a go at creating our very own self-portraits. 

This term we also have the opportunity to discover more about our local area and where we live.

It would be fantastic if you, your parents or other members of your family know any interesting facts about Kinoulton and the surrounding villages or have any old photographs you are able to bring in and share with us. We would love to see how our local area has changed (or perhaps stayed the same) over time.



Have a go at this game to learn more about our skeleton and the different jobs our bones do.

Can you put Annie back together again?


Being healthy helps us feel good and stops us from becoming poorly. But what can we do to keep ourselves healthy?

Have a look at this video to find out!


Can you design a poster to tell people how they can stay healthy?


In October, Hindus will be celebrating Diwali. 

Watch this short video to find out more about the celebration of Diwali.


During the celebration of Diwali, children get involved in lots of different arts and crafts.

Click on the picture below to print off some lovely Diwali colouring pages. Also have a look at some of the different Diwali crafts you could create at home.

Please bring in anything you make so I can show it off to the rest of the class!
