Welcome to Hawking Class
Miss Ingle is the class teacher and Mrs Allen and Mrs Pooley are the teaching assistants.
This year our class is named after a very famous scientist in British history - Stephen Hawking.
We will be developing our knowledge of history and paying tribute to him through scientific investigations and discovery.
The children stay in the same class for two years, so we work on a two year cycle for the curriculum. This ensures that children do not repeat a year.
To find out what we teach in the Year One/Two class, look below.
We have swimming on a Wednesday afternoon and PE on a Friday morning.
It is a school expectation that children practice their times tables at home at least three times a week and that they read at home at least three times a week.
Spellings are given on a Monday via Class Dojo and will be assessed in a dictation on a Friday. Please see below for the words that your child should be able to read and spell by the end of year 1 and 2.
In year 1 and 2 we provide continuous provision. This supports transition from EYFS, promotes independent learning and allows us to work with small groups of children at one time to achieve deep level learning. The children have their own learning passports which they use as a journal to show us what they are learning and how. Throughout the day, children work with adults in groups, independently and with their peers. Achievable yet challenging tasks are set in each of our 10 areas and the children can choose where they start their learning journey for the day. The areas that we have are: Maths, Literacy, Construction, Art, Reading, SPAG, Computing, Small World, Outdoor and Science. However, we encourage creativity and independence so other areas may be established over the term.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
