Class 2 - Curriculum
Welcome to our Class 2 page
We are a key stage 2 class made of year 3 and 4. Our teacher is Miss Young who is supported in so many different and wonderful ways by our teaching assistants Mrs Smith, Mrs Priday and Miss Hunt.
We like our classroom to be exciting and stimulating yet we have high expectations for ourselves and always try our best.
We have a parent drop in between 8:40 and 8:50 on a Monday morning. Please come in and see what we have been learning about in the previous week!
We teach The National Curriculum through a two year rolling programme making sure that all topics are highly interesting, stimulating and engaging throughout.
Like Class 1 and Class 3 we teach English and maths daily to ensure the embedding of key skills and application in different contexts.
In English, we use a great deal of talk, discussion and evaluation to enhance our skills so that good quality writing can be seen in a variety of genres.
Spellings are also taught daily in school. Spellings to look at at home are sent home on a Monday to be in for the test of Friday.
We also use a range of ‘Alan Peat’ sentences to support the children to use a wide range of sentence types.
In maths, we use ‘The White Rose Hub’ materials which encourage the children to gain the skills in maths as well as getting them to delve deeper and ‘master’ the areas through reasoning and problem solving.
The children are also taught a range of other subjects such as science, computing, geography, history, music, design and technology, art and design, P.E., and P.S.H.C.E. These subjects wherever possible are taught through our termly topics.
Our Religious Education is based on the strategy ‘Understanding Christianity’. As a Church of England School we base our religious education on the Christian faith and our school values; as well as instilling in our children a respect and tolerance of other religious beliefs.
