In Nightingales, we are enthusiastic to learn, helpful to each other and we work as a team.


Welcome to Nightingales

Welcome to Nightingales’ Class. We are a Year 2 class and our teachers are Ms Scothern (Tuesdays-Fridays) and Mrs Hedges (Mondays).  Ms Reed and Miss Wilbert are also based in our classroom and help us with our learning. 


Reading : Your child will take home their school reading book each day. We ask that they spend time reading at home each day and record their reading within their Reading Record book. We ask that your child brings their reading book and Reading Record book to school each day.  They can do tests on Accelerated Reader after finishing their books if they have moved onto the Accelerated Reader scheme. Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. 

PE (PE kit)

To see when your child has PE please click on this link to view the PE timetable.  

Please ensure that your child comes to school dressed in the appropriate kit on these days.  Please ensure your child has their water bottle in school and, if it is going to be a sunny day, has sunscreen applied.

To ensure safe and enjoyable P.E. sessions, long hair needs to be tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, have to be removed. 

Trips and Visits

In Years 1 and 2, we organise a range of trips and visits, each year. The aim of our trips is to supplement our children’s learning for that half-term. They give our children real-life contexts for their topics.  We are currently following Cycle A .

Cycle A

Summer 2 -

Woburn Safari Park

As part of our History topic ‘Toys’ the children will have a workshop to investigate toys from the past. 

The children will be visited by the Raptor Foundation and will experience birds of prey at school

As part of our ‘Creatures Great and Small’ topic, the children visit the Safari Park to find out about different animals.

Cycle B

Summer 1 – Mosque Visit

Summer 2 – Hunstanton Beach

In preparation for learning about ‘Muslim Special Places’, the children will visit and tour the inside of a mosque.

The children will visit Hunstanton beach as part of their learning about the seaside.
