Welcome to the Red 2
We are a Year 1 and 2 class at Two Rivers Primary School, where we pride ourselves on our informal approach to learning. Our approach follows the research of Penny Lacey, which focuses on developing engagement, independence and communication skills in young children.

Every Friday we have a special assembly to celebrate the week's achievements and topics. Each week, one child from Red 2 will be awarded with our 'Superstar Learner' award, which will be given for special achievements, good behaviour, manners or excellent work.
We have our P.E. lesson on a Tuesday and will need our P.E. kit on that day.

Over the Rainbow
Our primary goal is to provide a nurturing and safe environment where children can develop their independence and communication skills. We believe in providing targeted interventions to meet the specific needs of each child. We use evidence-based programs such as Tac Pac, Identiplay and Attention Autism to help develop these skills. We work using the engagement model, to improve children’s ability to engage and respond to targeted learning.
We work closely with specialists such as Music Therapists, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, and Physiotherapy to provide the best possible support for our children. Our staff are highly trained and experienced in working with children with a range of special educational needs. We believe in using a multi-disciplinary approach to support each child's development.
Our approach has a significant impact on our children's development. They make great strides in developing their communication, engagement and independence skills. We provide opportunities for children to be active citizens and develop awareness of the world around them and the local community. Our children have demonstrated how they can positively contribute, and we are proud of their achievements.
At Two Rivers Primary School, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. We are committed to providing a nurturing and inclusive environment where children can thrive. We look forward to working with you and your child.
Our Reading Approach:
At Two Rivers Primary School, we are dedicated to providing our students with a strong foundation in reading. To achieve this goal, we use the Bug Club Phonics Programme. This programme is designed to help children learn the sounds and letter combinations that make up words, which is essential for their reading and writing development. The Bug Club Phonics Programme is a comprehensive approach that combines phonics, irregular words and contextual reading to help students develop their reading skills. Our teachers use a variety of fun and engaging activities to help children master phonics, such as games, songs, and interactive lessons. We believe that every child deserves to learn to read and enjoy the magic of stories, and our Bug Club Phonics Programme helps make this a reality. Please visit the dedicated Reading page within the Parents and Carers section of our website for further information about Phonics and some useful links to help you support your child with reading at home.
For our phase 1 learners we focus greatly on engaging the learners in developing their pre reading skills, this sometimes includes adaptations to best support individuals, who require this.
