Year 1 & 2, Squirrels

Welcome to Squirrels Class!

Squirrels Class is a mixture of Year 1 and 2 children, all subjects are taught by Miss Freeman with the help of our wonderful teaching assistants, Miss Taylor and Miss Borthwick. During their time in Squirrels we all encourage the children to become more independent learners and thinkers. We also endeavor to develop the children’s skills and hope they are happy and motivated learners. We fill our day with lots of questions, exploration, kindness, friendship and hard work. In Squirrels we are transitioning from the EYFS curriculum to the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum, lots of reading, Maths skills, listening to and understanding of excellent stories, handwriting and fun topics are undertaken throughout Key Stage 1. Alongside all the wonderful work we do, we also have additional expert help from Mr Dunstan for P.E and Madame Gylphé for French. James comes in to teach guitar and whenever possible, external volunteers and visitors enhance the class learning. We follow a topic based curriculum, which changes on a termly basis. Our science, literacy, geography and art all link into this theme, ensuring we gain a good understanding of the topic whilst learning in a fun, enjoyable way.




A typical day in Squirrels consists of Phonics, English, Maths and handwriting in the morning. In the afternoon subjects such as Science, Computing, Art, Music, R.E. History and Geography are taught. We reading regularly with each individual child and provide guidance on how to help out at home.

This week in Squirrels class we have been busy creating some autumnal collages.







Here we are with our very own story maps. As Miss Freeman reads the story, we draw pictures to represent key words/phrases. This helps us to learn the story off by heart, which then helps us to write about it!
