Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Year 2

Hello Year 2,

Welcome to our new class page.  Watch out for photos of our class coming soon!

This half term our work will be a fact finding mission to find your answer to this question:


Would YOU live next door to a WOLF?

Latest News

PE with Mr Jacobs  is on Tuesday afternoon and with Mr Wormold Friday morning. The children are developing their coordination and agility by completing 'Sporting Age' activities and learning a range of multi-skills.

This half term I will  link some forest school activities to our work in Literacy and the Foundation Subjects Curriculum, where appropriate.  If possible, please leave a pair of wellies in school as there will not be a set day, but it will probably be Tuesday or Friday.

Spellings will be taught on Mondays, set for homework and tested the following Monday. Please find the spelling list on Teams.

A Mental Maths Quiz will be given each Tuesday, reviewed in class and sent home for you to talk through with your child as homework. Please ensure that your child's homework book is in their bag so that we can stick it in.  

Please return reading books on Friday, when new books will be given out.

Thank you for your support!
