October is Black History Month!
Black History Month recognises the contributions that black people have made to the UK and countries across the world, over many generations.
There has been a lack of representation of black people in the history books and Black History Month is a time to remember and celebrate the forgotten people who helped to shape the world we live in.
Black History Month is a great way to celebrate and recognise the contribution of black people to modern society. Our school must play a significant role in teaching children about the importance of having respect and tolerance for all cultures.
At Oldfield Brow, we will be weaving these celebrations into our curriculum, looking at historical figures across History, Science, English, Sport and much more!
What a fun week we have had in 2EL, well done everyone!
Happy birthday Antosh and thank you for bringing in some sweets for us. We also all wanted to say a big happy birthday to Mrs Fielding for tomorrow, we hope you have a lovely day.
This week we have enjoyed learning more about Florence Nightingale and her life. Did you know that her nickname was 'Lady of the Lamp'? We have also loved creating our own pop art projects so keep an eye on twitter for our work.
This week we changed the way we do our spelling homework so you should all have a login to EdShed. Let us know how it goes and if you have any questions please use the class email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Congratulations to Hollie for winning the dojo certificate this week!
It looks like the weather will be lovely this weekend so I hope you take advantage of it as much as possible. See you all on Monday.
Another great week for 2EL has come to an end.
This week we welcomed a new student to our class, his name is Efe and he has come to us from Turkey. I'm very proud of how welcoming 2EL has been and Efe is already part of our class. We are very happy to have you!
You wouldn't believe it but a strange creature visited our classroom this week and we finally found out that it was a Bog Baby. How exciting! We really enjoyed reading the Bog Baby story and we have started working on the book in our English.
Our favourite part of the week was when we tried lots of different vegetables in DT. We are learning about what a healthy diet looks like.
2EL earned 405 dojos this week and the certifacte goes toooo..... Penny. Congratulations!
I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather.

What a great start to the year! Well done Year 2 EL, you have really impressed me. I am very proud of all of you. We ended the week with a little competition. We made our own individual boats out of foil and guess what? They all floated in the water!
(Have a look at our photos, it was a lot of fun)

Welcome to our class page!
In our classroom we have Miss Liakata and Mrs Fielding helping us on our learning journey.
One of our main goals in Year two is helping the children to become more independent as they work. The children are encouraged to check their own work and to get used to finishing their work to a deadline!
In year two we make sure we always work as part of a team because we believe that Together Everyone Achieves More!
If you have any questions about anything happening in the classroom, please look in the class 'E - bag' to see the Autumn overview or follow the link to the calendar.
In the autumn term we will be working like busy bees!
In English we will be reading 'While We Can't Hug' by Eoin Mclaughlin. We will be basing all our learning around this book while focussing on how to keep ourselves and the people around us safe.
We will continue to work hard on our maths skills as the amazing mathemagicians we are! We will be working on number place value, counting, and addition!
For our Topic this half term we will be learning about two important historical figures: Florence Nightinglae and Mary Seacole so keep an eye out for all our exciting work!
In Science we will be working on all living things and their habitats.
For further information, please refer to the Autumn Overview in the class e-bag.
Chatterday homework sent home every half term.
Spellings are sent home and assessed every Friday.
Spelling books are to be returned every Thursday for review.
Please support your child with the homework if they need it.
Remember to read daily at home and to discuss the books as this really helps to develop comprehension skills.
(Children will be able to change their books once they have read twice with an adult)
