We are a Year 2 class. Tex is our class mascot. He is an adorable Husky that every member of Tex's Team loves. He often sets us exciting activities so we always need our resilience rucksacks at the ready.
Our days are very busy, filled with English, Phonics and Mathematics, as well as topic based activities. Our topics are ' Micro to Metro', 'Mechanical Marvels and Daring Designs' and 'Far Far Away'. We also take part in P.E (we are very lucky to have fantastic, friendly sports coaches from 54 Degree Sports every week), music and creative art sessions. During all sessions we have the opportunity to be a 'Master' and get to wear a 'Mastery medal' when we show our understanding and knowledge of a skill or concept correctly e.g. how to write the 5 times table, sort words into nouns and adjectives. We also use what we know to give a helping hand to other children in the class too.
All the children in Tex's Team learn best when their learning is real, relevant and fun. In the classroom we are very lucky to have the 'continuous provision ' which we call the Mastery Areas. For example 'Paint Mastery area' 'Construction Mastery Area' 'Computing Mastery area'. In these areas we are able show our grown ups what we know in many different ways, exploring and practising new learning skills independently and practically ensuring all the skills and strategies we put into our rucksack are embeded. E.g. working out Croc's worded 5 times tables problems, writing nouns and adjectives to describe a picture or object we have painted.
We particularly love, whenever we can, to go on school trips. Below are some pictures for you to look at showing what we get up to in Tex's Team.
