Elder Class are our Year 2 children, so there is a strong emphasis on acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills and practising these across a broad and balanced curriculum. The learning contexts are carefully chosen to be engaging and inspiring.
Elder class is taught by Mrs Williams.
Other adults who wok in the class include Mrs Banks, Miss Fisher, Mrs Lyford and Mrs Thornhill.
If you have a message or query about your child, you are welcome to speak to the staff member at the door in the morning, Mrs Williams at the end of the school day (once she has seen the children out) or by contacting the school office to arrange a meeting or phone call.

Elder Class has a library session every Tuesday. So please remember to bring in library books on this day so that they can be exchanged.
PE kits should be available in school every day but this term our usual PE sessions will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that you include a pair of socks for your child to change into and also ensure that they have plimsols or trainers at school on rainy days
This term the children can change and take home two reading books every Monday from their specific phonics or coloured book band baskets. Please encourage your child to read and reread these texts daily to build up their fluency and confidence with reading.
The children will also bring home their Number Bond Challenge Card. Please support your child to focus and work on their current star challenge, and let them know when you feel they are ready to be tested in school. Please also ensure that the Number Bond Challenge Card is in your child's book bag every day as they will also be tested on a rotational basis.
If you have any questions about your child's Reading and Phonics, please contact the class teacher via the school office. There will be further information sessions to recap and extend on this subject in the Autumn term.
