Red- Year 2

Welcome to Red Class - Year 2 - Mrs Macdonald


A few important notes:

  • All children need a named drinks bottle with water in it. 
  • All school clothes should be named.
  • All children's P.E kit must be in school all week, this must include P.E shoes, shorts, t-shirt and warmer clothes for outdoor P.E. 
  • Book bags must be in everyday, if children need to change their books, please leave the book bag  in the tray near the classroom door.
  • Please try and read with your child everyday for 5-10 minutes, and remember to sign their book so they can get a stamp which will lead to gaining prizes.
  • Please make sure your children do not bring toys into school. They can get damaged or lost. 


Thank you for all your help and support, any questions please ask and do not hesitate to come and talk to me. 




Autumn Term


Years 1 and 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London this half term. They have become quite the experts in the cause of the fire, how it spread and how Londoners tried to extinguish the flames.  Year 2 have also made models of the type of houses in London at the time. 

Today, the Great Fire of London was recreated on the school playground, when the models were set alight. The children watched ( from a very safe distance!) as the flames went from house to house - with only the one house standing at the end because of the fire break.  Mr Bascombe, our fire marshall for the event, set the houses up safely  and managed lighting the houses so that this could be done in a controlled manner. Mrs Macdonald talked to all the children about why we were doing this and also went over all the fire safety proceedures with them - all the children know that this is not something to try themselves!!

This was a fantastic experience for all the children. They were extremely well behaved throughout and showed a great deal of sensible, mature behaviour, but this did not diminish the sense of awe from watching Pudding Lane burn. The children really understood why this fire is something we still remember 350 years later.
