What the children are learning this year

We strive to nurture, challenge and inspire our children to be their best.   We endeavour to plan our curriculum to create a love of learning through challenge, creativity and a passion for stories. Our learning environments are built on a climate of mutual trust and respect where everyone is valued.

School Trips

Oxted War Memorial
This gives children the opportunity to see how our local community remember the people that gave their lives in conflict.

St Mary’s Church
The children are welcomed into the church and learn about its history.  They have a tour of the important parts and have a chance to ask lots of questions.

The Local Library
Children have the opportunity to go to the local library and learn where they can find books, the different things you can do at a library and listen to stories.

Drusillas Park
We visit this zoo to enrich their learning on Africa and animal habitats.  They attend a Masai workshop and go on a habitat hunt.

Supporting learning at home and Class Dojo

In Year 2, we encourage the children to do as much learning as home at possible. With this in mind we would be grateful if you could support your child in the following areas:

  • Daily reading
  • Learning your 2, 5, 10 and 3 times table
  • Practising telling the time

Each term we will send home a project for your child to do that links to the learning at school. If you have any questions about the project, please see the class teacher.

Thank you for your continued support!
Class Dojo is an online resource where parents can connect to the day to day learning. It is a secure environment where we can share photos and videos of what we are doing in school.
Phonics Play is a fun interactive website for children to play phonics games to help improve their decoding, blending and reading skills.

Online Safety

All children need to learn how to keep themselves safe online. Here are some things you can do:
CEOPS is the best place to go if you wish to report something inappropriate on the internet.
ThinkUKnow is where you can play interactive games and learn more about being safe online.
Kidsmart has lots of information about how you can keep yourself safe online.
