Welcome to Year 2
We’re Year 2 and our class name is Cedar. Our team consists of our teacher Mrs Mansfield and our teaching assistants Mr Walker and Mr Boulter.
Year 2 is an exciting year where the children can show all their amazing skills they have learnt during Reception and Year 1. They continue to develop a wide range of skills in preparation for life in Key Stage 2.
Children are encouraged to be more independent, to make good behaviour choices and to let their potential soar. Now that they are working towards Key Stage 2 they will look after themselves and their property and will further their understanding of how to be a good friend.
