Welcome to Class 5. We are a Year 2 class that will be working very hard throughout the year to prepare for our SAT tests in May. Every morning we start with a Sounds-Write phonic lesson, followed by English and Maths. Our English lessons start with a spelling workout. Our maths lessons start with a flashback 4.
Foundation topics are covered in afternoons.
