Being the best we can be


Edison Class

In Edison Class (Year 2), we learn through a range of exciting projects. This term Edison Class new topic will be ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’. It’s going to be an amazing term and the children will have an enjoyable experience throughout the term. To ensure the children’s transition into Year 2 is as smooth as possible, activities have been created for the children to explore independently, based around the National Curriculum as well as an excellent reading area set around the Antarctica. We will explore the importance of family and what this means to the children.  

We teach literacy through our project, with many opportunities for the children to write, developing their grammar, punctuation and spelling. Our book units this term link closely to Mary Poppins, including ‘Wings’ and ‘Claude in the City’.

Mathematics is also linked to our project and covers the curriculum for Year 2. We teach maths in practical and exciting ways to deepen the children's understanding. We also use of the Forest School area for maths, literacy and project.  Outside learning gives children a fantastic opportunity to explore and be creative and so where possible, reading and creating stories will take place within the Forest School.
