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.

We begin our learning each day with handwriting 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 daily after break time, 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 lessons in our school garden which produce lots of fruit and vegetables! The Year 1 children also take part in Forest School 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 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.

We have been participating in the North Suffolk Virtual School Games, competing in the Cross country and tag rugby competitions. We have been lucky enough to have some of our pictures make the newspaper!

New for Autumn 2020 - Book Bingo!

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.
