Class 2 is a fun place to learn! Children take part in a wide range of activities including swimming, gym club, music, cooking and riding. Each pupil’s individual needs, strengths and interests are planned for in all lessons. Their individual education plans and targets are shared with parents. Pupil’s achievements are supported and celebrated in class and with the whole school.
Each term we learn literacy skills through a big book and the children in Class 2 love acting out, listening to and reading stories. We also concentrate on phonics. Children start to listen and say different sounds and build up short words using letter sounds. We teach handwriting in a very sensory way. Class 2 really enjoy getting messy writing and drawing in paint, shaving foam, sand, flour and on paper.
Class 2 use Numicon shapes to learn what each number means from 1-10. They learn through both seeing and feeling how Numicon patterns connect with each other.
All children in class 2 are encouraged to be as independent as possible and to express ideas and choices confidently. We focus on communication skills in everything we do.
