Year 2

Welcome to Year 2's page.  Mrs Mead is the class teacher and Mrs Cawley and Miss Rashad are the teaching assistants working with the class. We have lots of exciting topics and learning planned for the children this coming half term.

This half term we will be looking at explorers such as Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong and looking at their achievements. We're looking at numbers and calculations in maths as well as looking at fractions and worded problems. We're going to study familiar stories in Literacy as well as looking at structuring stories and working on the description of our own story,! 

We hope you all enjoyed the Easter break and hope you're looking forward to a learning packed fun Summer term!
