Class 2 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Class 2
Year 1 and 2 Teacher: Mrs Scott 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. Each week, children will also have a spelling list based on the sounds that they have learnt in phonics. Spelling books are due in on a Thursday with new spelling lists generated on a Friday. We will issue a new reading book every Friday which is also linked directly to the sounds learned in phonics that week. We ask for you to keep the book for the full week to develop fluency and comprehension of the text. By the end of the week, we would hope that your child will recognise words in the book by sight and not have to 'sound them out'. 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 Wednesday afternoon. During this time, the class will be taught RE by Mrs Latham and also have their weekly PE session.
