Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

 

Our teachers:

Cyan Class: Alastair

Turquoise Class: Kelly & Liz

Helen (Cover Supervisor)

 

Our Class:

Year 2 is when children blossom and grow as independent learners. Through our  topics of Heroes and Heroines, An Eye on London and Rainforests the children explore all areas of the curriculum.

 

There are a number of class trips throughout the year to support and inspire our learning outside of the classroom. During the summer term the children have the opportunity to go on a mini school journey. This is a fabulous time for everyone involved as the children experience different activities and get to showcase their talents.
