Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Mrs Hodgson - Class 2


Welcome to Class 2!



Welcome to Class 2 with Mrs Hodgson. Our class page includes lots of useful information about all of the things that we get UP2 in our busy and exciting classroom.


In Class 2 we work alongside Mrs Weaver as our teaching partner. Mrs Weaver will be working in Class 2 every morning.


This autumn term our topic is 'Fire and Light' and we are looking forward to finding out lots about The Great Fire of London; the famous Gunpowder Plot; suitability and uses of materials and; festivals of light. Alongside this, we will be learning all about the artist Mark Rothko and learning to mix secondary and tertiary colours; how to look after ourselves in PSHE and; in RE we will be looking at leaders, asking big questions such as 'Is Jesus a Good Leader?'.


Keep a look out for the 'What we are learning this week' poster on our classroom door for more specific details on what we are focussing on this week in class.

Useful information:

  • Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Please make sure PE kits are in school all week in case of extra opportunities. You may wish to include some warmer clothing for our outdoor sessions, particularly when the weather is colder. PE kits should include socks, a pair of trainers for outdoor games and plimsolls for indoor games. Please make sure that all items of clothing are named.
  • We have a daily show and tell in class - the timetable for this half term can be found below, and is displayed on the cloakroom noticeboard.
  • Homework is sent home on a Thursday and should be returned to the 'I've finished my homework' tray by the following Tuesday. The homework task is set to practise a concept the children have been learning during the week. We also send home 10 words each week for the children to learn to spell. Spelling tests take place each Wednesday.
  • Mrs Hodgson's Reading Challenge challenges each child in Year 2 to read 3 times or more to an adult outside of school each week. Reading records are collected in each Friday to reward the super-readers with a dip in the goodie bag.
  • The cloakroom noticeboard is full of useful information including the week's spellings, timetables, dinner menus and up-to-date letters.
