Our Children, Our Future.

Class 2 (KS1)

Welcome to Class Two


Class 2 is the Key Stage 1 class, Year 1 and Year 2 combined.

The children are taught by Mrs Chattey and are supported by two teaching assistants, Mrs Browne (Monday) and Mrs Poole (Tuesday-Friday).


The children have all built strong foundations, and across KS1 they further practice growth mindset, independence and creativity. This supports the children's love of learning to flourish further.

Welcome back! What a super day we have had learning all about the UK! Today we tried Welsh cakes, scones, shortbread and potato cakes, painted the national flowers for England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland and took part in some sports and dancing associated with each country! A highlight of the day was seeing who could throw their wellington boot the furthest! We even learnt how to say Hello in Gaelic and Welsh!

Welcome back!! Mrs Poole, Mrs Browne and I are feeling Professor Proud of all of the children this week. They have all returned ready to learn and it has been lovely to see them playing with their friends and talking about their experiences of lockdown. This week we have been learning about Van Gogh, playing board games to practice being Cool Cooperators and drawing our favourite memories from lockdown. Finally we have all been writing a story about ourselves and how we felt during the lockdown and coming back to school. What a busy but lovely week we have all had!

Our topic for this half term is... On the farm!

Our topic for this half term is.... The Victorians!

Surprise Victorian day! Today Mrs Poole and I surprised the children by arranging a Victorian themed day! The children dressed up and we did traditional Victorian school lessons! In the afternoon we did sewing and made carts! The children really enjoyed the day and have so far loved learning all about Victorians!

Welcome back!!

What a super start the children have all had this week. Mrs Poole and I have been blown away by how well all of the children have settled into their new routine. All of the children have had a real can-do attitude towards their work, and have been enjoying challenging themselves- particularly in Maths! This week we have been practicing writing our numbers, making 10 in different ways, writing about what we are looking forward to and a caption about our favourite stories, as well as painting self portraits and drawing different animals. Everyone has enjoyed doing the daily mile and seeing all of their friends again. We are all looking forward to what this current term has in store for us!
