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!

Jim Smith Read Live Event

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Year 2 had a live draw lesson with the author and illustrator Jim Smith this morning. We learnt how to draw Barry Loser and Jim told us all about how he planned the stories. We loved listening to Jim explain how Barry reflects himself and his friends when he was younger and we are now thinking what stories we might write if we become authors.

Money Maths

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

Year 2 children have been working hard this morning using money. They have been working out how to add up different coins to make a value, eg which coins would you use to make £4.25.
They have all worked super hard and Miss Goodall and Mrs Brook have been very impressed with their numeracy skills.

Skylar's Missing Note

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

This morning, Key Stage 1 had a wonderful morning learning all about Skylar's Missing Note. We started with a performance from Jen who told us the story of Skylar and how much she loved her piano. When Skylar moves house, her piano loses a key and she has to race through the town to find the missing note. We had a very important job to join in with the "pop. pop, pop" of bubbles and the "slap, slap, slap" of boxes moving. Each class then had a workshop with Emmett where we investigated what would happen after Skylar's story. We learnt lots of important music vocabulary including tempo, pitch, dynamics and rhythm.

Reading Challenge

admin on: Kidjo Class Blog

This week, three of our children achieved their bronze reading challenge awards! They have worked so hard to read a range of texts including those recommended by others. Why not ask them which their favourites are?

We are the first children in school to achieve our bronze awards so we hope to be the first class to achieve silver too!
