Who are we? 

There are two classes in Year 2:

The two classes are 2D (Mrs Webb) and 2T (Mr Troup). We are also joined by our teaching assistants who are Mrs Potts, Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Baber.

This half term our topic is:

READING                                          

“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” Dr. Seuss. 

 

We would like you to encourage your child to read at home every day. Please ensure that your child has their reading record in their book bag each day. Children change their book each week. 

A useful website to help you find appropriate books to read is:
