2C - Mrs Cartwright

Welcome to 2C

Welcome to our class page! We have an exciting learning journey planned for the children in our class in Year 2. We will be keeping our page updated about the learning that is taking place in our classroom and our new topics. We appreciate your support and are happy to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have.

Marvellous Monsters

Our first topic is all about monsters and we are looking forward to writing some exciting descriptions all about them. Find out more in our learning leaflet below. 

No Pens Wednesday

At the Monster Zoo, we thought about our feelings, thoughts and what we could see. We have been trying to find synonyms to improve our vocabulary. We will be writing diaries about our adventure.



Today we went to a Monster zoo...

Today we celebrated National Heritage Day

One miserable day, we came back from assembly and all of our precious books had gone missing! There were tipped over chairs and ripped up pages in our book corner. We couldn't believe our eyes! We wrote letters to Miss Halion to ask for her help. Finally, we found the culprit...



It was Nibbles, the book monster!


We came back from assembly and our books had gone 😳

Important information about 2C

Home learning

All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read and complete some homework and it is recorded in their log.


15 merits = Bronze

20 merits = Silver

25 merits = Gold



At the end of the half term the children's merits will be converted into learning loot to spend in the homework hut. Please support the children with their learning at home. 


Children are also rewarded within our classroom for reading 50 times and they will receive a bookmark and a prize.


50 merits = Purple




The children will receive new spellings each week and will be tested the following Monday. They will be attached into the children's home learning diaries.  Practising their spellings can be written in their home learning diary to gain even more merits. If your child has lost their spellings, please don't hesitate to ask for a spare copy.



We have Indoor PE on a Thursday afternoon and Outdoor PE on a Monday afternoon.

Please ensure that your child has correct PE kit on those days and that it is named.
