Welcome to Class 2 – Years 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1)
Hello and welcome to class 2!
In class 2 the children move from free choice activities and a play-based curriculum to more formal and structured learning. We aim to make this transition as smooth as possible ensuring the children are given time to adapt to their new routines and curriculum. During the morning we focus on maths, English and phonics, the afternoons cover subjects in the wider curriculum including science, history, geography, art, DT and ICT.
In class 2 we have a topic-based approach to learning, all the work that we do will be linked to the topic we are covering that term.
Spellings will go out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. Please help your child to read, write and spell these words.
Reading - We expect children to be reading most days and for parents to sign their child's reading record to acknowledge this. Please ensure that your child has their reading record in school every day.
All homework will be handed out on a Friday and is due back on a Thursday. Homework consists of mymaths which is completed online and a piece of written homework.
PE- is on a Tuesday but children should have their PE kit in school at all times.
