We would like to welcome you to Radcliffe's Rangers Year 1 and 2 Class.
Radcliffe's Rangers is based in a large classroom, it is a mixed Y1/Y2 class and has lots of areas of continuous provision which we call Mastery Areas. Such as the 'Making Mastery Area', 'Painting', Construction, 'Science', 'Maths' and 'English' . We use these areas to consolidate the children's learning and often set Mastery Challenges for them.
In Radcliffe's Ranger's Class the children use a multi-sensory approach to learning their spellings. They call this 'Busy Spellings' and during the week the children practise their own set of target spellings in the Mastery Areas in the classroom. This hands on approach makes them remember the words they need to learn to spell and also makes it fun!
Our children enjoy learning and accessing their classroom environment. Their days are very busy, filled with English, Phonics and Mathematics. The children love engaging in the foundation subjects as well for example we are 'Mini Explorers' for Geography, study 'Claude Monet's Landscapes' in Art and look at 'Living things and their habitats' in Science. In P.E we enjoy our weekly visits from the sports coaches from '54 Degree Sports' and the Sport's Partnership learning lots of essential skills such as football, hockey and also cricket in the summer term.
Radcliffe is our class mascot. He is a brave adventurer and is often the inspiration for many of our Mastery challenges and learning. He often needs help with his spelling, maths skills or science challenges and really appreciates the support of his Rangers to fix his work! They write about his adventures and report back and love it when he gets up to mischief!
Currently we all enjoy accessing 'Mathletics' and 'Mathseeds' to support our maths learning, we do this both in school and at home too! We also have a plasma screen, set of IPads and Tablets and the use of 6 laptops which we all love using on a daily basis.
