A Class of Growing Independence
In class two, the children are encouraged to develop their independence. They are taught to become more responsible for their own possessions and for their own learning.
When their formal work is finished for the day, the children do group activities using pattern blocks, multilink, iPads, etc, whilst the teachers listen to individuals reading. Every child reads to an adult three or four times a week.
Class two visit the university sports’ hall each week during the autumn, spring and first half of the summer term. They enjoy the freedom of space and the responsibility of walking sensibly with the teachers to the university across the road.
