Welcome to Duffy class – our teacher this year is Mrs Palmer and our Learning Support Assistant is Miss Copping.
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
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 twice a week. 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.
Home work will be set on Seesaw.
Thank you for your continued support.
