Key Stage 1

Welcome to Year 1 and 2

Welcome to Year 1 and 2! We are a mixed class of year 1 and 2 pupils aged from 5-7. Miss Foster is our class teacher and Maxine is our teaching assistant. Our year groups access continuous provision activities as well as teacher led learning either in small groups or as a whole class. In the mornings, the year 1's get taught maths and English by Mrs Bedwell to allow for our pupils to benefit from more targeted learning due to smaller group sizes.

We begin our learning each day with handwriting, arithmetic or fine motor activities. The rest of the morning sessions are spent learning English and maths. In English lessons we focus on reading and analysing texts and then move onto creating our own pieces of writing. We also include lots of speaking and listening activities! Our maths lessons follow a Mastery curriculum which includes: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, property of shape, position and direction and statistics (for year 2 only). During maths lessons the children complete a mixture of fluency, reasoning and problem-solving activities. We complete phonics/No Nonsense Spellings daily, learning our phonemes and graphemes and learning to apply them in our writing.

In the afternoons we spend our time learning about the other curriculum areas such as: topic (history and geography), science, computing, PSHE, PE, art, design technology and music. We also take part in outdoor learning in our school garden with Lucille, which produces lots of fruit and vegetables and teaches children all about wildlife and sustainability! The children also take part in activities at nearby Stoven Wood.

We make the most of our lovely school grounds and surrounding countryside to do as much outdoor learning as possible. During outdoor learning opportunities we have completed activities such as: building and installing bug hotels in our wildlife area, identifying trees and plants and collecting data about the different types of buildings in our village.

You can find out more about our topics and areas of learning by exploring the curriculum overviews and long term plans.
