Welcome to Bassoons Class

Welcome to Bassoons Class (Year 2 and 3).  We are a group of 28 lively, enthusiastic and extraordinary learners.  Our teacher is Mrs Smith and we have some fantastic Teaching Assistants who help us called Mrs Moores, Mrs Edwards and Mrs Fairbrother.  We love to be challenged and believe that, if we work hard enough, we can achieve anything.  We are kind and caring and always go out of our way to help each other.  We work as a team and always try our best.  We hope that you will enjoy looking at our class page and sharing our learning journey throughout the year.


Today we celebrated Safer Internet Day 2018.  We have been learning about how we shouldn't post things online unless we are happy for anybody to look at them.  We should always ask permission before we post a picture or video of somebody online and we should always be positive with our comments.  We drew some pictures and then we all looked at them together.  We used post it notes to write positive comments about the pictures.  This made us feel really good about ourselves and proud of our work.  We agreed that if we couldn't think of something nice to say, we wouldn't say anything! 

Clay Models

We had great fun making clay models in Art this week.

We hope you like them.



Enterprise Week


We had a fantastic time during Enterprise Week making our hand printed Christmas wrapping paper.

We did some research to see which colours and designs people preferred and then hand printed our paper.

It looked brilliant and Mrs Smith was really proud of us.

Thank you to everybody who bought some of our paper at the Christmas Fair.

Autumn Two


This half term our topic is called Fighting Fit.  We will be learning about our bodies, human life cycles, hand washing, keeping our teeth clean and healthy and healthy eating.  We will be making bodies out of clay and using our painting skills to decorate them.  

Our PE days this half term will be Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Please can you make sure that your child has their kit in school on these days.


This week we have been learning about Remembrance, with a special focus on child evacuees in WW2.  We have dressed up and acted out leaving our families behind to be evacuated.  We have written letters home and have tried to understand what life was like for people during the war.  Our Assembly on Friday was fantastic and made Mrs Smith extremely proud.  We are really grateful to our families for helping us to make our costumes and for coming to watch us.

Autumn One

This half term our topic is called The Place Where I Live.  We will be learning about our local area and what it was like to live and play here in the past.  We will be walking around our local area looking for playgrounds and places where potential playgrounds could be built.  We will improve our map reading skills and take digital photographs and will learn how to improve our drawing, printing and painting skills. 

Our PE days this half term will be Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Please can you make sure that your child has their kit in school on these days.

We Are Artists

We made printing tiles in the style of artist Edward Bawden. 

We then used them to print repeating patterns. 

We even cleaned up after ourselves! (Messy bedrooms here we come)!

Shape Detectives

In Maths we have been learning about 2-d and 3-d shapes.  We know their names and properties and have been shape hunting, building with 3-d shapes, sorting shapes and much more.  We are shape experts!
