Class 2

Welcome to Class 2; a mixed-year group of Year 1 and Year 2 children.

In Class 2, learning, in its broadest sense, is the key priority. We aim to ensure that the children are given every opportunity to achieve their best every day; so that their confidence and desire to succeed will grow, enabling them to fulfil their true potential as they continue their journey through school.  (Zachary: We do lots of fun school trips and our teachers are kind.)

It is our aim to nurture our children academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually; encouraging them to be curious, with a love of learning, and to provide them with a sense of aspiration that will prepare them well for life. Each child is valued, both as an individual, as well as a member of a team; this is reflected in our school values of Courage, Thoughtfulness, Thankfulness, Truthfulness, Humility and Friendship.  (Dolly: We care for each other.) (Eddie: You always have someone to play with.)

The core subjects are taught on a daily basis, through focused group and whole class activities. The children also have fun learning through play and investigation; working indoors and outdoors. We encourage independence, questioning, confidence and a desire to make decisions to drive their own learning forward.  (Olly: Our ‘Jobs to Do’ are fun and interesting.)

We liaise closely with Class 1, as the Year 1 children are split between the two classes, and the children move between the classrooms as part of their learning.  (Albie: I like doing Maths and fun Phonics and our teachers help us.) (Elijah: Please come to our class because it’s brilliant!)
