Our initial aim is to ensure the children experience a smooth transition from Class 1 to Class 2.
Class 2 is a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 group. Our curriculum builds upon and extends the work done in Class 1, with the timetable becoming more structured.
We do, however, expect your child to become increasingly independent and to be able to challenge themselves, taking risks to move their learning forward. We have high expectations of the children’s behaviour, in addition to their attitude and approach to their work.
We also expect the children to assume some personal responsibility for their belongings and personal organisation, to respect others, their ideas and their property.
Please do not hesitate to come and see us after school if you have any questions or queries
Your child will have a reading diary to bring home and we encourage you to hear your child read daily and to record it in the diary. This is really important and makes a huge difference to the progress of the children. They will need to bring their reading diary and book to school every day. Once your child can read their book accurately, they will be asked to write their name on the board in order to change their book or to complete a reading quiz about the book
In addition, please help your child to practise their weekly spellings and ensure the spellings book is in school on a Friday.
Class 2 do P.E. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their P.E. Kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. Encourage your child to practise getting dressed at home to help them to get dressed more quickly at school! Long hair will also need to be tied back. Please refer to the Uniform page for dress code.
Any letters, monies or reply slips which need to be returned can be put in your child’s book bag. The children can give them to the teacher at register time.
Your child needs their own named water bottle to keep in class, which they can access and top up during the day.
They may also wish to bring a healthy snack for morning break which they then eat at the beginning of play time.
