Transition from Year 1 to Year 2.
We support the children from their transition from Year 1 to Year 2 by still having an aspect of independent learning and creativity. Throughout Year 2, the children are encouraged to become independent learners which will support their transition into KS2.
The children are provided with a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for outdoor learning through the use of going to Beaumont Park and Forest school. Every day the children are taught: English, Mathematics, Phonics and take part in Group Reading. Throughout the week the children are taught: R.E, Music, PSHE, Geography, History, D&T, Art or Computing. In year 2, there is an emphasis on the children learning the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and everyday we have timetable chanting.
Article 12 of the UNCRC is vitally important and to promote the voice of the child the year 2 children take part in discussions related to topics and they do their feelings charts in the morning. The children were given the autonomy to apply for a job which they would like to do in school. Currently, we have student leaders, lunchtime monitors and school councillors.
The children are encouraged to read everyday at home with their parent/guardian to promote the love for reading. On a Friday, the children have the opportunity to go to the school library and choose a book of their choice. The children read independently and we have story time. Levelled reading books are changed when parents have signed their child's reading diary.
The children partake in P.E twice a week. The sporting activity will vary throughout the tear. One lesson per week will be led by a qualified coach or specialist teacher.
