Class 2 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Class Two  

Year 1 and Year 2 - Mr Hier

In Class 2, we continue to build upon the foundations set, ensuring achievement is high. Our standards by the end of Year 2 are overall in line or above national standards.

Phonics continues to be an important part of the children’s learning in Class 2 and a Reading Evening takes place in the Autumn term. The organisation of small groups ensures that teachers are able to support pupils with their Phonics, so that they can progress at a greater pace. (See also Reading Information.)

Our Class 2 teacher uses imaginative contexts to develop and reinforce core skills in Reading, Writing and Maths. Curriculum topics consider the children’s interests, and enable learners to explore their objectives in exciting and creative ways.

This week Class 2 have been learning about ordinal numbers. We had to decide the places that different aeroplanes came in a race, then we investigated ordinal numbers in real life. Can you think of any others?

We have also been preparing for our harvest festival assembly by looking at the foods that are harvested throughout the year. The children had a go at painting some of the different foods that we came up with as a class.


This week Class 2 have been learning about adjectives. We have explored adjectives by describing objects in feely bags and used these to help us describe the settings in our stories.

We have also learnt about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores and looked at which of the animals in Staverton are classified into each group.

This week Class 2 have been very busy! We have been learning the story ‘Hedgehog and the strange noise’ using actions and text maps.

We have also looked at the work of artist Lisa Jensen, thinking about what we like and dislike about her work, as well as how she uses colour.
