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 Landers as our teaching partner. Mrs Landers will be working in Class 2 on Monday and Thursday morning, and for the first hour each Friday, she also covers my out of class time on a Thursday afternoon. Mrs Thacker will also be supporting on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.


This spring term our topic is 'Explorers' and we are looking forward to finding out lots about some of the famous men and women who discovered different corners of the world, including: Ibn Battuta, Neil Armstrong, Amelia Earhart, Robert Falcon Scott and Christopher Columbus. We will also be learning the world's continents and oceans, as well as comparing different localities talking about geographical features and climates. In our art lessons we will be looking at the work of Henri Rousseau, taking inspiration from his imaginative works to recreate 'Surprised! Tiger in a Tropical Storm'. Alongside this, we will be learning about symbols in religion, drawing comparisons between Christianity and Judaism, and preparing for Easter.


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

Useful information:

  • Our PE lessons are on Thursday and Friday afternoons. We ask that on these days your child comes to school wearing their PE kit and brings a pair of clean shoes to wear indoors. Earrings should also be removed or covered at home. 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, including shoes.
  • 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.
