Year 2

Year 2

Year 2 is a fantastic class! We are taught by Mrs Jamieson and Miss Cook but we are also lucky to be supported at different times during the week by Mrs Winterburn, Mrs Chapman, Mrs Mitton, Mrs Gladwinfield and Miss Cadman.
We are a very enthusiastic class and we are always keen to learn new skills through exciting topics and experiences. We always have lots of questions to ask and explore. We are very active and enjoy learning indoors and outdoors.
We all have important jobs and we take our responsibilities very seriously! Early in year 2, we appointed three Class Councillors to give our views to the rest of the School Leadership Team. We pride ourselves on being positive role models.
