Year 2

Welcome to our Year 2 class page!

Class Teacher - Mrs Bradshaw

Teaching Assistant - Miss Caton


In Year 2, we will have so much fun with our learning! This year, we will build on all our wonderful learning from Year 1 and expand our knowledge with new and inspiring topics such as The Great Fire of London, coding, Rwanda and Neil Armstrong. Year 2 is such an exciting year as the children are already settled into the routines of 'big' school and can enjoy their school days without any worries! We begin each day with a lovely, calming story chosen by our children from the library as well as some positive affirmations! I have linked one of the videos I use below so you can have a go at home!

As well as our day-to-day lessons, we have so many fantastic experiences to look forward to, such as library trips, visits from drama groups, the nativity and so much more!

We can't wait to share our Year 2 journey with you all as we tackle each new challenge along the way. Please click on the links below for all your child's learning.
