Class 2


Our class teachers are Mrs Crickett and Mrs Eagle.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Z Gibson and Miss S McDonald who support us with our learning.

There are 28 children in the class: 15 children in year 1 and 13 in Year 2.

Our Classroom

In our classroom we have lots of different areas to help us discover things for ourselves.

We have a sand or water area, a painting facility, a discovery area and 2 touch screen computers for the children to use independently. Children develop learning through many hands on activities, this also includes using construction such as Lego. Learning is also reinforced through outdoor provision. Children go into the playground area to investigate or problem solve using large equipment.

We work in groups on teacher lead tasks and we do independent busy learning in the continuous provision areas.

Our Day

In the morning we have assembly and then do phonics. Literacy and Numeracy usually takes place in the mornings, however, all our topics are cross-curricular and this can be throughout the day. Topic time includes subjects such as Science, Art, ICT, Geography and History. On Tuesday mornings we also learn RE. We love our creative curriculum!

Our topics usually last for 2 weeks and within these we learn lots of skills and gain knowledge which we then demonstrate with our sticky learning assessments at the end of the topic. These can be found in our Remember, Remember Book.

We do PE twice a week.

Class 2 Recommended Reading List

As a school, we want to promote reading for pleasure and enthuse your child about reading.  The following recommendations represent a range of genres which we hope will encourage your child’s desire to read.  We have chosen a range of texts, from a variety of authors, with an excellent record of accomplishment in writing high quality children’s books.
As your child reads a book from the list please ask them to record this in their planner and discuss the book with their class teacher, they will be given a sticker to show that they have read it. We also encourage you to listen to your children read and also read to them.  The discussion that you can have related to the books will be invaluable to their reading development.
Some of the books can be found in the classroom, and your child is welcome to borrow these. You may need to resource others from the library or borrow from one another.
There is an expectation that a minimum of six books, from the list, are read over the course of the academic year. This equates to at least one per half term. It would be fantastic if your child could read more than this. Your child may read from the book list of a younger year group if they are less confident with reading.

Please see below our selection of recommended reading books by year group.
