Pandas is our mixed Year 1/ 2 class. Mrs Kaur is the class teacher, supported by Teaching Assistants Mrs Keating and Miss Wells. Miss Chittenden will also be working in Pandas class this year as a Trainee Teacher.
The morning session starts at 8.50am until 12.00pm and the afternoon session runs from 1.00 pm to 3.15pm. Children have 15 minutes play time during their morning and afternoon sessions.
In the morning, the children are taught the core subjects of Maths and English. During these sessions, the children can work either as a whole class, in small groups, or 1-1 with an adult.
During the afternoon session, children undertake topic related work which covers subjects such as history, geography, science, PE, Computing, music and art. These topics change on a half-termly basis. Additionally, all children have weekly RE and PSHE lessons. PE Sessions take place on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. All children need to bring a PE kit, including pumps or trainers on these days.
Please encourage your child to change their reading book every day. Children are expected to read at home each evening and should return their home reading diary on a regular basis so that it can be monitored by the class teacher. Homework is given out on Friday afternoon and includes a list of spellings to be learned as well as a maths and /or English activity. Homework books should be returned on Tuesdays.
The children in Pandas class have regular educational visits which may vary according to the topic being studied. In addition, all children have a day visit to Cliffe House during the spring or summer term.
