With Jesus we learn to love and love to learn


Welcome to The Housemartins Class


We are a class of 30 year 2 pupils. Our teachers are Miss Rushen (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) and Mrs Murray  (Wednesday). Our Class LSA is Miss Ransom

During the autumn term, our topic will be ‘Childhood’. 


Our phonics scheme is called ‘My Letters and Sounds’. This term we will be revising  Phase 5 sounds. The children will bring home a phonics book to practice their sounds at home. This book should be brought to school every day in their school book bag. (Please do not send in rucksacks as we do not have enough room to store them). Please encourage your child to read every day. Little and often is best. 


For those children who are confident and fluent with their phonics, they will be tested using our Salford Reading Assessment - these children will bring home colour-banded books. These will be changed once the book has been completed as these are slightly longer texts.


On a Wednesday, Mrs Wallington teaches us music.

We explore a variety of different instruments and learn new songs. 

Our P.E. day (this term) is TBCso please wear P.E. kits to school on this day. No earrings or items of jewellery are allowed and long hair must be tied back. Children will not be able to participate in the P.E.session if these guidelines are not followed. 


Please make sure that children have their own water bottles that they can bring to school daily. Please make sure that the bottle is named. Please label all clothes clearly with the children's names. 


Class Dojo is our main point of contact. We will update this platform regularly. If you ever have any non-urgent questions or queries, please send a message through this platform and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Any urgent messages should be reported through the school office. Thank you for your support. 

We are looking forward to a fun term!
