Class 2 - Curriculum

Welcome to our Class 2 page.

We are a key stage 2 class made up of years 3 and 4. Our teacher is Mrs Walton who is supported in so many different and wonderful ways by our teaching assistant Mrs Smith.

We like our classroom to be exciting and stimulating yet we have high expectations for ourselves and always try our best.

We've been learning all about angles and linking our learning of angles to degrees and turns. We had an angle hunt outside before recording our findings. The children certainly found it interesting to look at the world around them in a new way. I hope you will find the time to look at this work on our Friday parent drop ins.

 

Just a few words from Mrs Walton ...

Thank you for visiting our class page and I hope you will get a flavour of life in Class 2. As I am always saying to our children, we have a job to do in our classroom and that's learn. However, we certainly can have fun in doing so!

I teach The National Curriculum through a 2 year rolling programme making sure all topics are highly interesting, stimulating and engaging throughout.

In class 2 English and Mathematics are taught daily.

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,

In Mathematics I use The White Rose Hub materials and make maths as meaningful as possible. We especially love maths learning outside!

Science is an important part of the curriculum in Class 2 and helps develop the children’s understanding of the world we live in.

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.

Computing, Geography, History, Music, Design and Technology, Art and Design, Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) and Physical Education are also given high priority in Class 2. I ensure learning takes place, where possible, in a cross curricular way.
