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.

We begin our learning each day with handwriting, arithmetic or fine motor activities whilst the children come in before the register is taken. 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 Little Wandle Phonics/No Nonsense Spellings daily, learning our phonemes and graphemes and learning to apply them in our writing. To help develop our phonics skills, we complete paired reading at least 3 times a week, using a variety of methods we have learnt to help us to read accurately and fluently. 

In the afternoons we spend our time learning about the other curriculum areas including: history, geography, science, RE, 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 are very lucky to 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.

Book Bingo! Headteacher's challenge

Mrs Allen has set a challenge for all children in the school. Here is a list of classic recommended books to read. There is a copy of each book in the classroom. We recommend RED for year 1 and ORANGE for year 2. The more confident readers might like to look at the YELLOW list.

Here are some of the activities we have been doing this year!
