Welcome to Year 2!
We have an exciting year ahead, with lots of great opportunities for learning both in and outside of the classroom including a trip to the SS Great Britain in the Autumn Term. Throughout the year the children are encouraged to become independent thinkers, develop a good attitude towards their work and maintain positive relationships with staff and their peers.
