Years 1 and 2

Our classroom has moved into a new room this year in the main school.  The emphasis is different from reception as the children start to focus on the Key Stage 1 curriculum and the National Strategies for mathematics and literacy.

Reading continues through the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme with progression onto chapter books as appropriate.
Weekly spelling tests are part of the curriculum, to support those non-phonetic words that just have to be learnt.
Homework is also set, focussing mainly on reading, writing and maths.

The class is involved in the school Nativity play which is part of the Christmas service at the church.
An outing is planned for each term, with a joint Christmas visit with Years 1 & 2. In recent years we have visited the toy museum, Park House, the Royal Stud, the Butterfly Park, Thursford, Princess Theatre, Sea Life Centre.
