Class 2 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Class Two  

Year 1 and Year 2 - Miss McCarron

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 we have looked at drawings of castles and will recreate a picture from a famous artist - Sun and Castle by Paul Klee. We have also been learning to use our part-part-whole models in maths and our bar modelling. In PE, we have been using jungle animals as models for exploring different ways of moving.


This week we have been working on describing a beautiful castle in contrast to a dark, dingy cave. The children have been thinking about how to make their work exciting with expanded noun phrases. This involved thinking carefully about adjectives and what was a ‘boring’ word and what was really exciting vocabulary.


Today we have been learning about France as part of European day of Languages. We have looked at the features of instructions and used them to draw a French flag. These are now displayed in our window for others to see.
