Year 2 Staff

Class 2B: Mrs Hayden and Mrs Tricker

Class 2R: Mrs Wright and Mrs Milton

We have had a fabulous start to the new academic year. All children have settled in well to their new classrooms. We are very excited for the year ahead!

Thank you to everybody who has brought in their 'Big Building' family projects. They are amazing! We have enjoyed sharing these in class. We will still welcome any other projects during this half term. 


Please ensure your child brings a named water bottle each day.

Please ensure all uniform and PE kits are clearly named. Your child will need an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. Any old joggers, jumpers, and trainers will be fine to use. 

Reading -We recommend that your child changes their reading at least once a week. It is great that some children are changing their books more frequently. Look out for our new class story sacks which might be coming home with you soon! 

Spellings - A weekly list of spellings will be sent home on a Friday for the following Friday. 

Maths - If we feel your child needs specific support on a concept we will send something home to help.
