Key Stage 1 Parent Information Video

Overview

Key Stage 1 is currently organised into three Year 1 and three Year 2 classes.  We follow a creative curriculum where Maths and English skills are fed throughout our planning. The children begin their day at 8:30 or 8:40 (depending on their school house). The pupils’ timetable is structured for the morning into Phonics where we follow a Read Write Inc programme, Maths and English lessons, with guided reading also being done in our afternoon sessions.  We also do Wake and Shake sessions which are physical activities to get the brain warmed up! The afternoon sessions are led more by independent learning.  The topic is taught through a whole school creative approach, for more details of this please look on the Year 1 and 2 blog.

Below are some great Writing home sheets, so you can see what is expected from year 1 and year 2.

Year 2 Writing – ‘Gorilla’

Year 2 Writing – ‘Gorilla’

In Year 2 this half term we have been writing a story based on the book ‘Gorilla’ by Anthony Browne in our writing lessons. The children have changed the characters from the story and invented their own. The children have also changed where the characters go in the story. The children have been focusing on writing in the past tense and using verbs and adverbs in their writing. Well done year two!

Read Aloud Day

Today we shared books with our class buddies. It was lovely to hear the children reading aloud and discussing books. The Y5 children took their mentoring roles seriously and were questioning their buddies to ensure understanding. We even had some acting as a Y5 student demonstrated what it meant to stroll through the rainforest as an elephant.

Year 2 – Visiting the Outdoor Classroom

Last week Year 2 enjoyed visiting the outdoor classroom, where we listened to birdsong before making our own bird feeders. We hope these will help the birds to find food during the winter. We are looking forward to going back to the outdoor classroom soon!
