Welcome to Bell Class

Our class is named after the inventor of the telephone Alexander Graham Bell. We have already started to learn about the amazing things that he did.

Our team is made up of Mrs Bates and Mrs Ismail. Mrs Bates teaches Bell class from Monday to Wednesday morning and Mrs Ismail teaches Thursday and Friday. Year 2 PPA time is on a Wednesday afternoon.


Our PE sessions are on Monday afternoons and Thursday afternoon, please ensure that your child's PE kit is in school at all times as outdoor sessions may change due to weather conditions. Long hair must be tied up on PE days and we also advise that earrings are taken out at home.

Friendly Reminders

Please can you ensure your child has these things in school:


  • A PE kit; to include tracksuit bottoms, spare socks and a hair band. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday.
  • A named water bottle - everyday.
  • Named slippers.
  • Named wellington boots.
  • Named spare clothes in case of toilet accidents or falling over in the muddy playground.
  • Hat/sunhat, scarf and gloves depending on the weather, - all labelled. The school does provide a sun hat, if you do not wish to send one in for your child.

Contact Information

If you need to contact the teacher, the best way is to talk to us straight after school.  However, if this not possible please email both teachers so that your query can be answered by the teacher who is working that day.  Our email addresses are rbates@discovery.kent.sch.uk and zismail@discovery.kent.sch.uk.
