I am already beginning to think about september when i will be moving into year 2 for the first time (and not sure what to expect) I would like to teach some topics that the children will actually be interested in - have so far thought of space and knights and castles. Does anyone have any other ideas that they have used that the children have responded to well? Also what sort of resources will i need to have in the classroom? I am moving from foundation to year 2 so can i take the good practice with me - can i have a role play area, writing table etc and get away with it? Year 2 seems so formal and not at all what i am used to teaching. How do people out there organise their day for year 2 especially in the early days of september? In my opinion they are only 6 and therefore still young so i think they still need to be able to play?!? I may have totally the wrong end of the stick and may be having a slight meltdown for no reason (i really am hoping so!!) Thank you.
