Welcome to Class 6! What a super start to a new year we have had. The children have settled really well and have already produced some amazing work. My name is Mrs Broad and I am the class teacher. Mrs Smith is our teaching assistant and we work very closely with Miss Greasley and Mrs O'Hare in Class 5. We begin every morning with Letters and Sounds followed by Literacy and Numeracy. In the afternoon the children will explore other areas of the curriculum including DT, Art, Geography, Science, History, PE, Music and RE. Please take a look at our termly newsletters to find out what is happening in these areas. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and if there are any questions please feel free to speak to any member of the Year 2 team, we are all here to help.
