Welcome to Highclere!
Year 1 and 2 are taught together in Highclere Class. The class teacher is Mrs Valentine. During the week they are also taught by Mr Armstrong, Mrs Myers, Mrs Crosse, Mr Baker and Mr Edwards.
We are fortunate to have Mrs Barrett and Mrs Waterstone supporting us at various times throughout the week, ensuring that all the children are getting the most from the curriculum. We do phonics for reading and spelling every day. Our Whole school topic this term, Terrific Tales, will take us to a world of stories both fictional and real, imaginative and historical. We are looking forward to learning about the history and geography of The Ridgeway prior to our class visit and Year 2 residential. In science we will investigate plants and habitats. Family Learning Week, 'Farm to Fork', will give us an insight into where our food comes from.
The second half of the term will include Sports' Day and The Whole School Production.
In Highclere Class we are committed to working hard and always trying our best, striving to be independent learners.
