Welcome to Class 2; Year 2 children.
In Class 2, learning in its broadest sense is the key priority. We aim to ensure that the children are given every opportunity to achieve their best every day; so that their confidence and desire to succeed will grow, enabling them to fulfil their true potential as they continue their journey through school.
It is our aim to nurture our children academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually; encouraging them to be curious, with a love of learning, and to provide them with a sense of aspiration that will prepare them well for life. Each child is valued, both as an individual, as well as a member of a team; this is reflected in our school values of Courage, Thoughtfulness, Thankfulness, Truthfulness, Humility and Friendship.
The core subjects are taught on a daily basis, through focused group and whole class activities. The children also have fun learning through play and investigation; working indoors and outdoors. We encourage independence, questioning, confidence and a desire to make decisions to drive their own learning forward.
Rock Pooling Trip to Beer Beach
We spent a very enjoyable and interesting morning at the beach on Wednesday. The children were investigating the sea creatures that can be found in the rock pools. We did get down in time to wade through a few pools and some very diligent searching resulted in us finding crabs and shrimps as well as sea anemones. We have followed this visit with work in Literacy about making fact files about sea creatures as well as designing ‘What am I?’ flaps; giving clues about some popular animals.
