Welcome to Class 2

We’re a mixed class of Year 2 and Year 3 pupils.

 

We are taught by Miss Mitchell, Mrs Buckle and Mrs Singleton.

It’s simple...in Class 2 we love to learn, learn, learn. We have a genuine thirst for developing our knowledge, skills and learning behaviours.

Phonics is still important in Class 2 but we are trying to develop our reading skills and we are also beginning to choose our own books. Learning our number bonds and times tables is really important in maths. We love exploring too, like the Colchester Zoo trip we went on in October.

Reading Support

In Class 2, reading is still very much the key to unlock all other mediums of learning. We, therefore, continue to follow the Letters & Sounds programme.

 

Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.

There are six overlapping phases. The table below is a summary based on the Letters and Sounds guidance for Practitioners and Teachers. For more detailed information, visit the Letters and Sounds website.
