Class 2 have two teachers, Miss Spivey and Mrs Rawson who job share. We explore exciting themes which enable us to cover all aspects of the curriculum. Themes we will be investigating this year are: Autumn 1— Discovering Diggle, Autumn 2— Winter Wonderland, Spring 1 and 2— Changes within Living Memory, Summer 1— London’s Burning, Summer 2—African Adventure.
Children will be set regular weekly homework, catch up activities and sometimes a small project.
Below is a letter for Parents and Carers with a message from the Managing Director of Children and Young People in Oldham as we start the new school Year.
Also please find a letter and Transition Power point from Year 2 teachers.
We are also starting to add Sticky Knowledge mats to our webpage should you wish to use them as a resource.
Sticky knowledge – What is it? Sticky knowledge is effectively knowledge that will stay with us forever. In other words, an alteration has happened to our long-term memory. We could divide sticky knowledge into two main parts. Firstly, interesting facts that will remain with us forever and secondly, knowledge that we need to learn as part of the national curriculum. New learning is often fragile and usually forgotten unless steps are taken over time to revisit and refresh it. The Mats can be used to dip into at various points throughout the school year to reinforce and embed learning.
