Welcome to Year 1 - 2!
The children are taught in a mixed age class. In Key Stage 1; Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are taught together for some lessons. The Reception children work in their own year group during Maths and Literacy lessons and the Year 1 and Year 2 children are taught together. This can be a very positive experience and mixed age classes have many benefits. It gives the teacher the opportunity to meet individual needs regardless of their year group. There is class stability and continuity making transition in year groups easier.
Our chosen themed topic runs through the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. We endeavour to make our classroom interesting and motivating, utilising the indoor and outdoor environment. We embrace learning outside the classroom and plan outdoor learning into many of our lessons.
Science October 2019
Today in science KS1 were joined by preschool and reception. They shared their ideas about why so many wild and wonderful animals have special patterns on them. After wrapping up warm, we took our science lesson outside. The children a range of cardboard animals that they needed to hide around the school grounds. They decided that the best way to do this was to camouflage them and thought carefully about the colours they should use.
