Expect the Best

Welcome to our website. Have a look at some of the exciting things we do at our school!

Welcome to Year 2!

We have 3 classes in Year 2.  We teach Science and the foundation subjects of the New Curriculum through topics and where possible we link our daily English and Maths lessons into it too.  To engage the children and excite them to learn we plan and deliver a broad and balanced range of activities that include first hand experiences, practical activities, group challenges, paired work and direct teaching.   We value each child for their uniqueness as every child has special qualities that they bring to the classroom.  We have very high expectations of all children and we aim for every child to achieve their full potential in partnership with you, their parent/carers.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate in either coming to speak to me, Mrs McNulty, or your child's class teacher.  We are always happy to help.


Thank you, from the Team.
