Welcome to Julia Donaldson Class (Year 2)

Welcome to Julia Donaldson’s class! In our class, the teachers are Ms Pearce and Mrs Hicks and our teaching assistant is Miss Wood.

This year we are learning about these topics: All About Me, Iceberg Ahead, Great Britain, Once Upon a Time, Rumble in the Jungle and A Pirate’s Life for Me! So far this year we have already been on a trip to Rochester Cathedral and to see the pantomime, ‘Aladdin’.

Our class charity is the Gravesend Sanctuary. This is a local charity that provides support for the homeless in our community and we are planning an event to support them in the forthcoming term.

We take part in PE lessons every Tuesday and this year we are learning about ball games, gymnastics, invasion games, striking and fielding and athletics.

We look forward to welcoming you into Julia Donaldson’s Class!


Our timetable can be downloaded below. Here, parents and pupils have the opportunity to view the class schedule to see the day-to-day routine including the range of curriculum that is covered. We have found that children with SEND have responded well to visually seeing the structure of the day ahead.

Terms/Topic Information

Our learning this year will be based on the topics below and will change accordingly each term. Parents will receive a Topic Web, Knowledge Organiser and recommended Reads at the start of each term informing them about what the children will be learning. This will also be available below to download.

At Rosherville Church of England Academy, we have introduced ‘50 Things Before I Leave Rosherville Primary’, this helps to give children the opportunity to tick off big items throughout their primary years. The experiences and activities Year One get to complete include:

#2 Learn to Tie Shoelaces
#10 Visit a Museum
#15 Visit Different Places of Worship
#32 Go on a Train Ride
