Year 2

Welcome to Class 2

  • Our Curriculum

    In Class 2 we follow the National Curriculum. To help us with our Phonics work, we follow Letters and Sounds. For PSHCE we use Jigsaw. We use the Discovery RE framework and for computing we follow the Purple Mash scheme. Each term we have a new topic that touches on each area of the curriculum.

    Our topic this term is 'Out and About'

    Welcome to Class 2!

    I am Miss Melley and will be teaching Class 2 this year and am looking forward to getting to know your children more throughout the year. Many of you will know me from last year when I was completing my PGCE through Bath Spa University. This year is a big one for me as not only is it my first year teaching but I am also getting married during October half term.

    We are very lucky, as we have the lovely Mrs Perrin with us in the mornings to help support the children in their learning.

    Mrs Lancely will be teaching in Class 2 on a Thursday covering my NQT and PPA time. She will be teaching Maths and Literacy in the mornings followed by PE and RE in the afternoons.

    We will have Maths and Literacy every morning and foundation subjects such as Science, Geography and Art in the afternoon. Where ever possible these lessons will be linked to our class topic, this term’s being ‘Out and About’. In geography, we will be looking at using maps and exploring the similarities and differences between Berkeley and a small area of a non-European country. In Science, we will be exploring animals and their habitats.

    This term’s home learning grid will be posted on the class blog in the during next week alongside the dates for when we will be sharing home learning.

    Key points and reminders:

    • PE is on Monday and Thursday (PE kits to be kept in school)
    • Please ensure your children have a water bottle (with water only) in school everyday
    • New reading books will be sent home with your children over the next few days after I have heard them read. Please encourage your children to read every day as this really helps support their reading development and literacy skills.
    • Please can you send an old oversized shirt or t-shirt for your child to use during Art lessons to help protect their uniform.

    Key dates for the diary:

    • ‘Meet the Staff’ BBQ – Friday 13th September 6.30-8.30pm
    • KS1 parents evening – Thursday 2nd November
    • KS1 Christmas play – Tuesday 12th December

    Details of any class trips will follow later in the year.

    Finally if you have any Kinnex, sticklebricks or lego that is no longer being used please consider donating them to school so that the children have more to play with during wet play.
