‘Where the children come first’

Highclere Class Years 1&2

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 Kilding, Mr Waller, Mrs Crosse and Mr Baker. Mrs Barrett supports 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. We hope to make use of our local outdoor environment with regular walks to the woods to explore.

Our Whole school topic this term is Flights of Fancy and we will look at different types of flight. We will read books stimulating imagination and dreams. Our Family Learning week takes place this term and we will be thinking about 'Going Green', focusing on Global Goals and how we can make our school greener.

This term we will continue to enjoy visits from the mobile library van and welcome local residents for coffee mornings at the same time.

We will visit our local church to celebrate Easter and enjoy Easter crafts and a music Spring Concert.

In Highclere Class we are committed to working hard and always trying our best, striving to be independent learners.
