Class 2

Class 2 is a mixed year 1/2 class taught by Miss Laing..

Distinct Literacy and Numeracy lessons take place in the morning with separate phonics session taking place continuing Letters and Sounds from class 1.  Consolidation of these skills and the objectives set out in the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum occurs through topic work in the afternoon.

Topics covered in Class 2 include;

  • Home & Away (Local area study)
  • All Change (Homes in the past)
  • Faces, Families & Friends!
  • Jack & the Bean Stalk
  • All at Sea (Holidays in the past)
  • All Aboard! (A contrasting locality study)

Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed a wonderful fun-packed day at Stafford Castle. We minted our own medieval coins and acted out attacking and defending the castle. We also got the opportunity to handle and try on helmets, shields, chain mail and armour and learn all about what soldiers would have worn in battle back in Norman times when the original castle was built.
