The who’s who of class 2!

Mrs Wheatley is the classteacher on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday.

Mrs Boswell is the classteacher on Thursday & Friday.

Mrs Cowling is the classroom assistant.

 

What did you do at school today?... PLAY!

During their first year at school children undertake much of their learning through play and as they move into class 2 this is still very important. The classroom is organised in a very similar way to a reception classroom with different learning zones such as construction, sand, water, role play, writing, outdoor play etc. Just as in reception the day is structured to include direct teaching opportunities either as a whole class or in small groups as well as structured play. As the year progresses and it is appropriate for the needs of the children, the amount of direct teaching time increases.
