What makes our Year 2 special?
In Year 2, we aim to make learning fun, enjoyable and memorable, igniting the imagination and instilling a love of learning in all of our children. We will foster a sense of warmth and community, were children feel safe, secure and valued. In Year 2 we will give 100% in everything we do, always striving to reach our full potential. We will encourage the children to take pride in their work and presentation and to always try their best, so that they are proud of their work. We will rise to the challenges of year 2, embrace it, ask questions and know it is ok to make mistakes, always learning from them, bouncing back and try again. We will have a ‘can do’ attitude to our learning and demonstrate resilience and determination to achieve our goals. We will remember our school moto and always follow it ‘if you can dream it, you can do it!
In Year 2 we are a class family, always working as a team and taking care of one another. As a family and school community, we are dedicated to help and support all children, enabling them to flourish, grow and succeed, in their own individual ways. As always, and especially during these difficult and uncertain times, we are committed to support, empower and encourage one another, helping the children grow in confidence and independence.
We promise that this year is going to be a great learning experience for all of the children.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact any of the Year 2 team.
