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 Mrs Myers, Mrs Hooper and Mr Baker. Mrs Barrett and Miss Chamberlain support us throughout the week, ensuring that all the children are getting the most from the curriculum.
We do phonics, spelling, reading and maths every day, with a wide variety of afternoon lessons including French, music, art, topic, science, RE and PSHE.
Our Whole school topic this term is Myths and Legends and we will explore stories local to us, including the legend of Wayland before visiting Wayland Smithy as part of out walk and Year 2 residential visit to the Ridgeway.
Other outdoor activities are planned for Outdoor Learning Week in May.
This term we will enjoy visits from the mobile library van and welcome local residents for coffee mornings at the same time.
The whole school production at Arlington Arts will take place at the end of term and every child will be involved with singing, dancing and acting.
In Highclere Class we are committed to working hard and always trying our best, striving to be independent learners.
