Welcome to our class!  We are very excited to start our new adventure in year 2 this year we are keeping the same teacher and teaching assistants however our class teacher Miss. Lucas is now Mrs. Carroll. We also have Miss. Pearson and Miss. Mckelvery to help us.


In year 2 we all strive to be kind, caring, friendly and considerate children who aim to always be green and follow the golden rules.

Welcome back after the Summer holiday! We can’t believe we are in the new school year and the Autumn term already. I hope everyone had a lovely time off with lots of rest and fun and are ready to come back to school ready to learn.

The Autumn term is always exciting we have lots of things to look forward to like our class trip to the transport museum, exciting learning opportunities and of course the Christmas fun and production!

Now we are in year 2 we are working hard to make sure we follow the golden rules and core values of our school as well as in our lessons following the key principals in IPC and making sure we work hard and always try our best. In May year 2 will complete SATS tests so excellent attendance and punctuality are vial in playing an important role in your child’s learning this year.
