Class 2 Information Letter
Welcome to our Key Stage 1 Curriculum page. To find out what the children will be learning as part of our two-year rolling program, please click on the link above.
Class 2 currently comprises of 21 Year 1 and 2 pupils. The class is taught by Mrs Robinson for the majority of the time with Mrs Ireland and Mrs Goodfellow teaching 3 afternoons. The support staff are Miss Morgan, Mrs Gleadow and Mrs Ratcliffe. We are also fortunate to have Mrs Capper, an ex-teacher at the School, volunteering every Tuesday.
We believe children learn best when having fun, we are looking forward to a successful and enjoyable year ahead. Here are three of our favourite activities;
A small group of children bake every Friday with Miss Morgan. The children choose what they would like to bake as a group and then record the ingredients they need. Some children go to the Post Office to buy ingredients. We hope this will develop a wide range of skills in a fun way.
Show and Tell
On Tuesdays, we have ‘show and tell’ sessions which provide each child with the opportunity to bring in something special (max. 3 objects) to show to the class and talk about.
This starts after the October half-term break. Please ensure that a spare set of clothes is available in school each day as well as a waterproof coat. We now have a wellie rack in the PE shed, next to the greenhouse, so please ensure your child has one pair of named wellies.
The Class 2 motto is ‘Try Everything’ and we often sing this song when the mood takes us.
Forest School continues to take place on Fridays, please ensure that a spare set of clothes are available in school each day as well as a waterproof coat and a pair of wellington boots that can be left in the conservatory.
The children will continue to be able to choose a library book to take home on a Monday. A new book can be chosen when their previous one is returned. All the children have been given new reading books and have the opportunity to change these on Mondays.
PE is on Monday and Tuesday afternoons, please leave PE kits in school.
Please ensure that only water is in your child’s water bottle within the classroom (unless you have discussed an alternative with us) The children have access to this throughout the day and take it with them to PE.
Fruit is provided for year 1 and 2 at morning break. Parents are more than welcome to provide fruit to suit individual requirements.
Here are some ideas to support your child at home:
- Encourage daily reading (school or home books, magazines)
- Writing (stories, diaries, recounts)
- Cooking (reading instructions, weighing and measuring)
- Shopping (using coins and getting change)
- Telling the time
- Help the children develop their typing skills. This helps speed up computing
lessons no end. BBC Dance /mat typing program is free.
- Looking at maps and finding out about different countries
- Going for a walk and looking at different styles of houses
We are always on the lookout for people to help in school with a whole range of activities. Please come and chat with us if you know of someone who might be keen.
We look forward to working with your children and yourselves in the year ahead.
