In Pandas class, Miss El-Hossiny is our teacher and Ms Parker is our wonderful teaching assistant (Miss Tyerman calls her our class superhero!) We are a happy and caring class who love to have fun. On one of our first days in Year 2, we thought about how we can make sure we have our best year yet! These ideas became our class rules, which are:
We love having a voice in our school and Ethan and Rosie are our school council representatives. They take all of our ideas to regular meetings with senior leadership!
What we do in Pandas Class
Throughout the year, we work hard on our early writing and mathematics skills so by the end of Year 2, we are fully equipped to move up to Key Stage Two.
In English we cover a range of texts including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We have just written our own alternative versions of the ‘Three Little Pigs’. In the Summer term, we will be learning about fantasy stories and writing our own quest adventures. We follow a mastery curriculum for maths and our lessons follow a six part structure, including a talk task. We use ‘star words’ in every lesson and enjoy putting actions to these to help us remember and understand them.
Taking care of ourselves, both physically and mentally, plays a huge role in our day-to-day life. Completing the daily mile keeps us active and puts a huge smile on our faces. We are resilient learners and recognise the power of learning through our mistakes.
Some of the extra-curricular activities that we enjoy throughout the year include a trip to Chiltern Open Air museum, where we pretend to be the three little pigs and build real houses from different materials, and pond dipping in the River Thames.
We are incredibly proud of our work this year… thanks for dropping by!
