Welcome to Duffy Class (Year 2)
All about duffy class
Our teachers are Mrs Havord and Miss Cooper and our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Ketley and Mrs Procter.
In Duffy, we create a positive and enjoyable environment in which the children feel happy to learn and feel confident to challenge themselves.
During year 2 we encourage children to work independently and cooperatively with each other. We support the children’s learning and development of skills through a range of teaching methods including whole class, group work, paired work and individual learning opportunities.
We learn through a variety of methods and where possible, the lessons are cross-curricular and practical.
Duffy class will be given extra responsibilities throughout the year to encourage them to develop confidence and independence, which will ensure they have a smooth transition into key stage 2. For example:
- Taking the lead roles in the Christmas production
- Choosing books independently
- Have buddies in Year 3 to learn from their experience of transition
The topics we will be covering throughout the year will include:
- Autumn – Home and Away (UK and Australia)
- Spring - Through the Keyhole (inventors and inventions)
- Summer - Run to the sun (festivals and growing)
Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure children have removed earrings on PE days and they have BOTH indoor and outdoor kits in school every day.
We change our reading books on Monday and Thursday. The children can take two reading books at a time if they are ready to. They will also be able to choose a library book.
Please check the homework sheet or your child’s reading record book for any notices. Homework will be set on Friday, to be given in by Thursday of the following week.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Havord and Miss Cooper
