WELCOME TO CLASS 2
Our class is a mixed-age class made up of children from Year 1 and Year 2. Our class teacher is called Miss Wilson and our support assistant is called Mrs Judson.
On a morning, year 1 children are taught Maths, English and Phonics by Mrs Brooke-Mawson whilst year 2 stay with Miss Wilson for Guided Reading, Maths and English lessons. On an afternoon, all children reunite to cover other subject areas such as Topic and RE.
In English, we study units based on the Primary Frameworks, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We work closely on reading and writing skills such as comprehension, spellings and sentence structure. We follow the Oxford Reading Tree scheme up to NC level 3, when novels by popular children's authors and information texts are introduced.
In Maths, we follow the Primary Framework for Maths, visiting a variety of units to study each term. We cover arithmetic with involves addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We also work hard on our reasoning skills which involves finding missing numbers, shape properties and data handling. In maths, we enjoy mental, written and practical session both inside and outside the classroom using some fantastic apparatus to support our learning.
Foundation subjects are taught in the afternoon in classes, using a topic based approach and covering all areas of the National Curriculum and the Early Years Framework. We learn about some very exciting topics which we bring to life in our other subjects too.
Class 2 have PE on a Monday and a Friday. Please can you ensure that the children have an appropriate PE kit on these days and bring a water bottle in to school daily.
Year One children will be taught phonics using the Letters and Sounds scheme of work and will need to practise their phonics in preparation for the Phonics Check in June 2020. At the end of the academic year, year 2 children will complete National Curriculum Tests. It is important that children read often at home, practice their phonics skills, spellings and complete their homework to support their progress.
We are going to have a fun filled year and work very hard to achieve our best!
