News from Chris and Simon...!


Peak District Music Centre are running online rehearsals for beginner wind instrument players and Youlgrave Primary School pupils who play an instrument have been invited to join in for free this term.  Rehearsals are run via zoom on Tuesday evenings at 6pm.  The students play music together and then have a fun quiz.  Our players have been really enjoying it.  


All music is available to download from our beginner wind webpage (this is only accessible via a link - it is usually only available to members).  For more information and for a link to the next rehearsal please contact the PDMC administrator, Marion Redman (


Best wishes- and thank you for helping us with this

Our new topic for this half term

Road Trip USA.

Buckle up, sunglasses on. We’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A. Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks. Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Read about famous Presidents and how their legacy can be seen today. We will be looking at famous landmarks of the USA as well as rivers that travel for miles and miles. It promises to be an interesting, intriguing and incredible trip - all from Youlgrave!

Have fun! We’re off!

Welcome to Class 2.


We have a very exciting year ahead and I am sure the children will enjoy learning and working together. Below is information about our class routines to help parents have a feel of what your children are doing and when.


Class 2's Teacher is Mr Scully.

Class 2's Teaching Assistant and the Positive Play and Nurture Lead is Mrs Houghton.



Our topic this half term is Road Trip USA.



In English we will be using our topic to explore poems and riddles, diaries and narratives as well as looking how we can describe characters. In Grammar, Punctuation and spelling we will be looking at prepositions and prepositional phrases. Our spelling will continue to focus on our 'orange words' as well as our weekly spelling units.



Our Maths theme this half term is place value, fractions and formal methods of multiplication. Each Monday and Friday we will be working hard with our Beat That Maths.



In PE this half term we will be swimming on Tuesday afternoons at Bakewell swimming pool. In addition, Class 2 will have a PE lesson on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for these days.



We will also be enjoying music lessons on Tuesday’s with the Wider Opportunities scheme with each child learning how to play a brass instrument which will be brought home each week for the children to practise.



Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Each week children will have a Maths and English piece to complete in their homework book. In addition, children will be expected to read each day and this is to be recorded in their reading record diary which should be returned each day. We also use TT Rockstars which can be accessed at home and this is a fun way to learn and improve their times tables knowledge.


Throughout each day we will also be taking part in fun activities such as the Daily Mile and Go Noodle which the children enjoy.

If you have any questions please speak to me at the end of the day or contact me at school.
