This year we are known as Simon Bartram class!
Miss O’Rourke is the class teacher, alongside Mrs. Duly and they are assisted by Miss Bennett. Miss O’Rourke teaches from Tuesday to Friday, and Mrs. Duly teaches every Monday.
As Year 1 and Year 2 children are in the same class their work is carefully differentiated to allow for differences in age, experience and ability. Their learning is linked closely to our big question of the term (see Curriculum: Questioning Curriculum). Children in Year 2 are statutorily assessed at the end of Key Stage 1, using national curriculum tasks and tests to support teacher assessment, and results are reported to parents at the end of the year. The Year 2 pupils enjoy working with their younger peers and acting as ‘apprentices’ in their learning.
