Welcome to Rockies Class: Year 2 and 3
Rockies Class is taught by Mrs Ward (Mon – Wed) and Miss Calder (Thurs & Fri) and is supported by highly trained teaching assistants. In Rockies class, we learn through a variety of ways to support all learners. We enjoy an exciting, enriching curriculum where children enjoy learning through investigation, real life experiences and from each other. Our children are confident to share their thoughts and understanding as well as challenge each other’s viewpoints. This leads to great class discussion.
We promote a language rich environment, taking all opportunity for the children to practise their spoken language skills. Within the class, we encourage a love of reading through sharing quality texts together. We also enjoy discussing our favourite books or books that we are currently reading. Children have the opportunity to read online through Bug Club, we have a shared guided reading text, an extensive library and a class pleasure read.
A day in Year 2 and 3 (Rockies Class)
The gates open for the children at 8:40am when they are able to come straight into school to complete their morning task, linked to essential number facts or previous learning.
The gate then closes around 8:50am. Children are then registered and we start our school day. In Rockies Class we start with our Reading then Writing session, using the Talk for Writing approach or Take One Book. After break at 10:35am, we then move onto our Maths teaching, taught separately to the two year groups, where we focus on Maths Mastery. Throughout the morning, children will have explicit taught sessions on handwriting, number facts and spelling in addition to the core subjects.
During the afternoons, you will see Rockies Class focusing on different Curriculum subjects. Children have access to iPads and laptops to support their learning in school. We also encourage the use of technology at home, through the engaging resources of Bug Club and TT Rockstars. Using their curiosity, children are encouraged to ask questions and over the unit, explore their interests and develop and acquire new knowledge. Each term, we aim to invite visitors into school or take part in trips linked to their curriculum subjects – these are valuable and memorably experiences that they will never forget!
