Welcome to Nessa Class


We are a mixed year 2 and year 3 class of 30 children.

Our class teacher is Miss Curnow.

Our wonderful classroom assistant is Mrs Trembath and occasionally we are lucky to have Miss Bellis and Mrs Duke come to help us.

On a Tuesday afternoon we are taught by Mrs Duke while Miss Curnow has her PPA.


We hope you enjoy sharing our learning as much as we enjoy getting stuck in to learn!

Spring 2 Topic Dinosaurs

Nessa Topic Spring 1

Week Beginning 19th March 2018

We've had a very busy week in Nessa as the Year 2's have started their Secret Agent Training (SATs). The children have been developing their detective skills to work out what the questions are asking us to do and remembering different strategies in order to solve the problems. I've been particularly impressed with the determination and general positive attitude towards both learning and team support this week. It's hard to believe we're coming to the end of our Walking with Dinosaurs topic - we hope you enjoy looking at the fossils we made! Next week we look forward to using our imaginations to get stuck into story writing! 

Weekly news, week beginning 12th March

This week in Nessa Class we have been working on fractions in maths looking at thirds of numbers and shape. In Literacy we have been learning how to punctuate correctly and writing in the first person. In topic we have been studying real fossils to become curators. We have made our own fossils using salt dough.

Nessa have been busy learning about light and shadows this half term. We've used non-fiction books to find facts about electricity - did you know a lightning bolt is hotter than the surface of the sun? 

We've also had a lot of fun exploring how light reflects in a mirror by writing a message and then turning it into a secret code by copying what the message looks like upside down and back to front in the mirror. We had to work out what our friends had written!


We've been using The Lighthouse Keeper's rescue to develop our descriptive writing skills. We hope you've been keeping an eye on Pobble to look at our writer of the week because we've worked so hard to edit and up-level our writing. This is a skill that takes lots of practise to recognise how to make our writing even better.


Have you seen our lighthouses around the classroom? After learning about Grace Darling's rescues, interviewing lighthouse keepers, finding out how a lighthouse works and practising our painting skills with Pointillism, we've had a go at making our own lighthouses as part of our homework. Miss Curnow is very proud of the effort Nessa class put into their creations. Some of them even have working lights!
