This year we are known as The Chocolate Factory!
Mrs. Duly is the class teacher and she is assisted by Miss Bennett and Mrs. Foster. However, whilst Mrs. Duly is on maternity leave, the class will be taught by Mrs. Churchill on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Miss O’Rourke from Wednesday to Friday.
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.
