Class 2 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class 2
Year 1 and 2 Teacher: Mrs Jones Teaching Assistant: Mrs Richards
In our class, we build on the children's wonderful EYFS experiences, and their wellbeing is at the heart of everything that we do. We continue to develop children's love of learning, and we gently support and encourage them on their journey to becoming independent learners. We understand that children learn in different ways, and we use multi-sensory approaches in our teaching and learning sessions. To ensure a smooth transition to their new year group, we give children an opportunity to learn through their own interests during free learning sessions.
Every Friday, we will set homework tasks on Google Classroom. These are designed to support and consolidate the learning that has taken place each week and it is very important that they are completed. On Google Classroom, you will also find some links to interactive maths and phonics games, which will further support children's learning and progression. Each week, children will also have a spelling list based on the sounds that they have learnt in phonics. Spellings will be tested on a Thursday morning and new word lists will ready to take home on a Friday. A new reading book will be given out on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday. We ask for you to keep the book for two nights to develop fluency and comprehension of the text. We also like to actively encourage children to read for pleasure and develop a love of reading by choosing books from their own and our school book collections.
This year, Planning Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) for Class 2 will be on a Monday afternoon. During this time, the class will be taught music and computing by Mrs Latham. Each week, Mrs Latham will also be spending some time teaching children to tell the time, so any extra practice at home with this skill will be extremely beneficial for your child.
