Class 2 children are in years 1 and 2. We continue to follow much of the Early Years Curriculum, developing the characteristics of effective learning; engagement, motivation and thinking through child initiated play. We are also working on early learning skills, and learning about number skills through songs and games. We enjoy a big book too where we learn to listen and engage with a story.
We have a total communication policy where children are encouraged to communicate using their chosen means of communication, including gesture, signing, symbols PECs and vocalising. All attempts at communication are encouraged and we use intensive communication to support this too. We do lots of singing in class 2, and learn to chose favourite songs using pictures and symbols. We also end each day with our class assembly and singing.
We also enjoy lots of creative activities such as painting, sand and water play, play dough and collage. We have weekly PE and soft play sessions and are looking forward to swimming in our beautiful new pool.
Class 2 also have a link with Leverstock Green Primary school, where a small group of the children from the school come to visit us and join in with our activities in class.
