In Class 2 our teachers are Mrs Rowberry and Mrs Holt and our teaching assistant is Mrs Owen. We are in Years 1 and 2. We follow the Key Stage 1 part of the National Curriculum. Mrs Rowberry and Mrs Holt plan exciting and interesting lessons for us. The subjects we learn are:
- English – reading [word reading and comprehension], writing [transcription, handwriting, composition, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation]. We are using the Read, Write Inc programme for our phonics, reading and writing development. Into year two we use the Oxford Reading Tree books.
- Mathematics – addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, geometry shapes
- Art and design
- Design and technology
- Physical education
- P.S.H.E – personal, social and health education
- Religious education
Very often, we explore these subjects through our topic work. Some of the exciting themes we’ve covered include The Great Fire of London, The Seaside and North American Indians. Our classroom is spacious with room inside and outside for us to work, whatever the weather. We enjoy working hard on activities that can be put on display.
