Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


It is hard to believe we are nearly at the end of another school year. The children are thoroughly enjoying our class text 'The Robot and the Bluebird' as you can see from our recent 'Writers of the week'. 

We have still got lots of busy things to do before the end of term including watching the wonderful Key Stage Two production, meeting the new class teacher and a few fun learning activities too.


The children have clearly been inspired by our learning this term and have produced some amazing projects. Look out for pictures of their fantastic efforts below over the next few days.


Do you have any ideas for this page? Please let me know!
