Scissett CE Academy

Welcome to Kidjo Class

We are the Year 2 children at Scissett CE Academy and the oldest children in Key Stage 1. In Year 2, we are working hard to become more independent in our learning and build our confidence but we always make sure we have fun to make our learning experiences memorable and enjoyable.

Our class teacher is Miss Goodall and she loves to keep us active. Mrs Brook works in our classroom everyday and she is amazing at helping us to stay organised and develop our creativity!

This year, each class is named after a musician and we are named after Kidjo. Kidjo is a Beninese popular singer known for her collaborations with internationally prominent popular musicians and for her innovative blending of diverse musical styles.

We will be updating our blog frequently to share our learning with you at home – there’s lots of exciting things to come in Year 2!

Shotput Champions

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

As part of our Giants PE lessons, we have been learning about athletics. This week we attempted shotput.

Ava said "it's tricky because you've got to push it, not throw it" whilst Stirling thought you needed extra power from a run up to make it go further. Keep your eyes peeled for us in the next Olympics.

Magical Maths

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Year 2 have been focussing on place value in maths this half term. It's the starting point for all maths so it's important we get it right!

We have been choosing our own numbers and then ordering them from smallest to biggest and biggest to smallest. We even challenged our partners to see if we could catch them out!

Meeting Emily Gravett

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Thanks to Read. Holmfirth, we had the rare opportunity to meet a real life author today - Emily Gravett. Emily showed us what it was like to be a real life author and illustrator and held a special draw-along class for us to draw her blackbird characters. Lois said she wants to be a real author when she goes up and Darcy thought it was cool you could work at home with your dog!

We've also listened to Cyril and Pat, another Emily Gravett story, today and began to compare them. Anaiya said "you can tell its the same person because animals are the main characters and they're all beautifully drawn".

Have you read any books by Emily Gravett? Which are your favourites? Year 2 would love to know!

Our Digital Footprints

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

In our computing lessons, Year 2 have been thinking about their digital footprints and what this means. We thought carefully about where we put our data online and how we can make sure we stay as safe as possible online.

Here are a few rules for you to follow:

  • Never share your passwords with anyone.
  • If you see something that upsets you or that you don't like, tell a trusted adult straight away.
  • Never post personal information such as your address or your full name online.
  • Only use the internet with permission from a grown-up at home or in school.
  • Only say things online that you would be happy for people to know (such as don't say mean things about other people)

Harvest Festival

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Now that things are getting a little bit more normal, we were so excited to go into worship for the our Harvest Festival. We socially distanced in the hall with Year 5 and we loved listening to their prayer. It was also lovely to be able to sing with them (especially as some of the songs are still new to us!)

Mrs Boulby needed some very special helpers to make her Harvest who else would she call on? Us!

As a school, we are incredibly grateful for the amount of donations we received to send to Skelmanthorpe Food Bank.

School Council Elections

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Every year at Scissett, we elect a new School Council. In Year 2, this is a really big thing for us, as we are the year group in which our school council starts. We spoke about what a School Councillor did and what qualities make a good Councillor. After this, children were then asked to nominate themselves and give a little speech, telling us what they felt was important to improve in school and what would make them a good Councillor. We then had a democratic election (in which everyone had a vote, to make it fair!) and then Miss Goodall counted our votes before announcing our winners.

Our elected Councillors are below - it was a very tough vote!

Welcome to Class Kidjo!

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Welcome to Class Kidjo's blog! We are the Year 2 children at Scissett and we are taught by Miss Goodall and Mrs Brook. In Year 2 we do lots of exciting things including taking part in multi-skills, learning to play the glockenspiel and finding out all about Africa.

This year, each class is named after a musician. We took inspiration from our Africa topic and are named after Angelique Kidjo, an internationally renowned singer from Benin (she was even on Live Aid!)
