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. We 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.
We particularly enjoy, whenever we can, to go on school trips. 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. We also take part in P.E inside and outside (we are very lucky to have fantastic, friendly sports coaches from 54 Degree Sports and the School's Partnership).
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.
