Welcome to Opal & Pearl Class!

Opal Class Teacher: Miss Hillier

Pearl Class Teachers: Mrs Fenton & Mrs Wright
Professional Teaching Partner: Mrs De Castro

Welcome to Year 2! We have two Year 2 classes at St Mary Cray; we have a job-share team of two experienced teachers, Mrs Fenton and Mrs Wright in Pearl Class, and Miss Hillier as the class teacher in Opal Class. We work closely with each other as well as our Professional Teaching Partner Mrs DeCastro and Individual Support Assistant Miss Bell. In our classrooms, we strive to offer rich and inspiring learning environments. We are devoted to giving pupils a fun, broad and engaging curriculum that will be seen both indoors and out. 

In Year 2 we follow the Core Curriculum when teaching foundation subjects such as History and Geography.  In Literacy we use Read Write Inc and elements of the Power of Reading. We follow the Maths Mastery scheme in Numeracy. We put our pupils at the centre of our curriculum and always start with the child when planning; using the children’s previous knowledge, experiences and interests to motivate, challenge and engage them.

Outdoor Learning forms an integral part of our pupils' learning at St Mary Cray Primary Academy.  Children have access to a trim trail, large grassy field, allotment and, via our partner school, a swimming pool and Forest School.
