Y1 (Suffolks) and Y2 (Swaledales)
Welcome to Y1 and Y2 class. This year the children will be taught by Mrs Armstrong and Miss Davies on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Airey and Miss Davies on a Thursday and Friday. They will be supported by our teaching assistants Mrs Barker and Mrs Barton. At this age, children are so eager to learn new things and share any experiences that they have had. This is encouraged and is a very enjoyable part of teaching this age group. The topics that we cover in year 1 and 2 are taught in many different ways that give each individual child the chance to share. We provide a challenging but supportive curriculum drawing from our learning journeys to build skills and independence. Reading is a high priority in class 1 and 2 therefore we aim to hear individual reading at least once a week and use guided reading sessions to support the children's comprehension and understanding of the text. We believe that for children to learn they need to be happy and well supported. Lessons should be fun and inspiring. The children's work is valued and recognised. We feel it is very important for the children to have a caring and sharing attitude towards each other and encourage polite and well mannered behaviour.
Our topic this term is 'At one with nature' and have planned lots of new and exciting activities.
