Welcome to Class 2 2017-18
Our class teacher is Mrs Crickett and we also have Mrs Cooper-Wilson our teaching assistant who supports us with our learning. There are 31 children in the class: 15 children in year 2 and 16 in Year 1.
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 role play area and two 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 in to the playground area to investigate or problem solve using large equipment. They also use the garden to explore and problem solve.
Barnaby Bear is the class mascot and he is taken home each week by a lucky member of the class. They record their activities with him in his scrap book which is then shared with the rest of the class.
In the morning we do Phonics, followed by Literacy and Numeracy. In the afternoons we have Topic time which includes subjects such as Science, R.E, P.E, Art, I.C.T., Geography and History. On Tuesdays we also learn French and do Musical Theatre.
In our class we do lots of different learning. We have small focussed group learning, independent learning, and learning all together. This helps us to do our best and enjoy being in our class.
