Mrs Cousin - Teacher Mrs Rankin - TA
A warm welcome to our Class 2 page. Class 2 is made up of Year 3 and Year 4 students. Our teacher is Mrs Cousin who teaches us for English, Maths, PE, Art and DT, along with lots of other things like philosophy and circle time. Most of our sessions take place in the Class 2 room.
We all work hard to do our best, both in and out of the classroom. House points/Class Dojos can be earned, or if we go the extra mile, we may be given a raffle ticket. All children try hard to follow the behaviour plan, show the Bolton Values and Do the Bolton Do Bs! Every week four pupils will receive awards for demonstrating our values of Caring, Excelling, Inspiring and Enjoying.
We have a class representative who takes our ideas to School Council and we have Class Council sessions when we discuss how the school could be improved and what is working well.
Sometimes we work with different specialist teachers such as Mrs Walsh for French, Mrs Tinkler for Computing and Miss Lowthian for Science and Music, and Mrs Elstone for World Views and Religion and PHSE. This year (23/24) Mrs Hodgson is teaching us Art and DT. Children in Class 2 will be learning to play a musical instrument throughout their time in Key Stage 2. These sessions will be delivered by a peripatetic teacher from the music service. Currently, we are learning keyboards. Mrs Rankin is our class TA often (although she supports in other classes too), and she works with Mrs Cousin and helps individuals who sometimes need some extra support.
Children will receive weekly homework and there is a lunchtime homework club available each week, if you need any help. There is also a session called 'clinic' where you can ask a teacher or Teaching Assistant to help you with any work that you have found challenging. Spellings and times tables will be given to learn and these will be tested on a weekly basis.
Keep an eye out on our Class 2 page for photos and useful links. Our curriculum can be found under the Key Information tab on the homepage. Take a look at what we will be covering throughout the year!
There will be opportunities for children to become involved in out of hours activities through our extensive range of After School Clubs. Watch out for these in the weekly school newsletters. Throughout the school calendar there will be competitions to represent the school in sports such as hockey, gymnastics, cricket, cross country, football, netball and more.
Please feel free to pop in before or after school if you would like a chat. We have an 'open-door' policy but sometimes it is easier to make an appointment or drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org first.
