Welcome to Class 2!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let me know! I would love to see what you are doing, please email Mrs Rowberry at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
In Class 2 our teacher is Mrs Rowberry and our teaching assistant is Mrs Ainsworth. We are in Years 1 and 2. We follow the Key Stage 1 part of the National Curriculum. Mrs Rowberry plans exciting and interesting lessons for us. The subjects we learn are:
We have adopted an enhanced provision style of teaching, this is to reflect and build on children's experiences in Reception exploring Rainbow Challenges as well as the adoption of LIFE as our Christian ethos. Everyday new activities are introduced, while previous activities are still accessible, so learning is always being moved on and developed. Mrs Rowberry and Mrs Ainsworth work with small groups on focussed activities which are then complimented by independent learning. This means all children are supported and challenged at their own level and we are all busy exploring.
We believe we learn best when we work in partnership with parents. Reading at home, every night if possible, is a great way to improve your phonics ability, fluency and comprehension. Occasionally we may send home an idea for an optional homework 'project' to be completed, possibly over a half term holiday or a few weeks. Examples of these projects include make a lighthouse or a representation of your home using any materials or media you would like. On our Home Learning page there is also a recommended list of spellings and spelling patterns for Year One and Two. We will look at these in class as part of our handwriting sessions in class but extra practice at home can be helpful.
We always try to start and finish our English sequences of learning with a WOW in and a WOW out. These can include something appearing in the classroom to special visits or visitors.
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 Treasure Island. 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.
If you’d like to know more about our curriculum please do contact the school. If you come and visit we can also show you the curriculum maps we send home to our parents or these can be accessed on the What We Are Learning page.
