Welcome to BROWNE Class
As the children at Lyminster move into Year Two, our aim is for them to become more independent and responsible for their own learning, whilst still feeling secure enough to take risks and challenge themselves. Whilst the style of teaching and learning does become more formal in Year Two, the emphasis is still very much on creativity and exploration, and this is reflected in the broad range of topics and activities that the children will experience. We still have time for independent learning where the children can access the different areas in the classroom to learn through play and self initiated exploration.
Towards the end of the year, the children will be taking part in end of Key Stage SATs, and whilst they will be well prepared, these are very informal, and the intention is that the children hardly even know they are happening! The children will leave Year Two as confident, engaged young learners looking forward to the challenges of Key Stage Two!
In year 2 our class author is Anthony Browne, it would be lovely if you could share some of his stories at home, there are lots in our class library for the children to choose from. I hope you enjoy reading them together.
The children loved our Carnival of Animals topic and we are now moving on to our topic of Game On. In our topic this half term, the children will be designing, creating and evaluating their own computer game. Throughout the term, they will be learning how to use a range of software as well as exploring how to stay safe online.
