Class 2

Years 1 and 2

Mrs Sanderson, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Middleton

welcome you to Class 2 !

Class 2 has two teachers Mrs Sanderson and Mrs Marshall alongside Mrs Middleton who works as a teaching assistant.

Our topics for 2015 – 2016 are;

Autumn Term  – Our place in Space !

Spring Term – Look Out ! Change is about !

Summer Term – The Seaside and Pirates !


During our first topic, ‘Our place in Space’ we will be finding out about where we live, starting with our immediate locality, then exploring out into the Solar System!

The children will be given opportunities for lots of different learning experiences ! Please see the Topic web which will give you a flavour of what is coming up throughout the term.

Our topics are designed to incorporate all areas of the National Curriculum including, science, history and geography. They have been planned to provide the children with a balanced, exciting curriculum throughout the two years of Key Stage 1.

All planning is in line with the current National Curriculum for KS1. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum



In Class 2 the most important homework which you can do with your child is to read together as often as possible! Ideally hearing your child read daily for approximately 10 minutes.

However, we want all children to feel that reading is fun ! Therefore you can share their school reading book or a book from home or a magazine they are enjoying ! But we would ask that you make a note of it in your child’s reading record please as this helps us immensely ! In addition your child will receive a sticker each time their reading log is completed at home and 10 stickers results in a prize !


Every week your child will bring home a list of spellings to learn. These words will link into sounds/spelling patterns being learned in school that week and it is very useful if they could practise these at home using the Look Cover Check method before their test on a Friday.

Maths and English Tasks

In addition to the above, the children will also be given either a maths or an English task to complete which will support their learning in class.

If you have any queries at all please don’t hesitate to come in and see us!

Kind regards

Mrs Sanderson and Mrs Marshall.
