At Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery the Lower Phase consists of Year 1 and Year 2.
There are two classes in each year group.
Our Year 1 classes are called Tigers and Lions. Tigers are taught by Mrs Webb on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with Mrs Oldaker teaching for the rest of the week. Miss Buso is Lions class teacher throughout the week.
In Year 2 they are named Zebras and Giraffes. Mrs Parish teaches in Giraffes on Monday and Tuesday with Mrs Yallop teaching on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Zebras are taught by Mrs Thompson from Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Downer on Thursday and Friday.
All classes are supported by our LSAs- Miss Taylor, Mrs Brown, Mrs Pudney and Mrs Wood- every morning and carry out small group work in the afternoon. Mrs DeCosta and Mrs Turner also support children during our PPA afternoon.
All children in the Lower Phase are expected to read at home at least five times a week and to take time discussing the story, characters and predicting what might happen next. This should be logged by carers in their reading log books.
Children in Years 1 and 2 are given word walls for reading and a spelling grid linked to the phonics and common exception words that they have been learning in class. They are also set a weekly maths task, this may be using Numbots, a paper based exercise or a practical activity.
Occasionally we will provide optional activities for children to complete at home, to compliment learning completed in class.
