Welcome to the Year 2 class page!

In Year 2, we pride ourselves on working hard but also on enjoying ourselves and having fun. Research has shown that cultivating happiness in the classroom is crucial to your child's academic success. 

The children in Year 2 are lucky enough to be supported by a highly experienced team:

  • Mrs Edmonds and Mrs Lee
  • Mrs Groom (Teaching Assistant)

On here, you will be able to find useful information and updates about your child’s learning. Our one BIG ask is that you hear your child read as much as you possibly can: we recommend a minimum of 4 times a week. Don't forget to sign their reading record books too! If you have any questions at all, at any time, please don't hesitate to ask.
