Class 2 at Osbournby Primary is a mixed Year 1 & 2 class. We teach maths & literacy in the morning & the creative curriculum in the afternoon, which covers all of the other subjects: science, computing, art & DT, PE, RE, music, history, geography, PSHE & citizenship, under the umbrella of the class topic.
Phonics is taught daily in small groups using 'Letters & Sounds' and our reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree. Children are encouraged to read daily and develop their phonics knowledge through multisensory activities.
Our timetable allows for a range of activities, which keep the children involved & interested - learning social skills as well as physical & cognitive skills.
The class has and interactive board, PCs, & the use of laptops and iPads. A role play area & a large carpet area allow for more informal teaching and learning. We also have the use of a kitchen for small-group cooking activities, where we have cooked produce from our school garden.
