Welcome back to school!
We are so pleased to have the children back in school. We are very much looking forward to the term ahead and getting back into the routine!
Our Year 2 teachers are Miss Van Tuyl in 2VT and Miss Singleton in 2S. For a look at what is ahead, please see our curriculum map located under 'Our curriculum' - year 2 for a full overview of the academic year.
