Head of Year Welcome

Hello, I’m Miss Rani! I’m the Year 2 Curriculum Lead and I teach 2 Tolkien.  Year 2 is a fantastic year group to be in because of our engaging topics, exciting trips and challenging texts.  This year, your child will be supported by Mr Ledingham (2 Cadbury), Miss Kosar (2 Simmonds), Miss Tulloch (2 Watt), Mrs Bi and Mrs Powell.  Highlights of the Year 2 curriculum include a hook day in Autumn term where children get to dress up and become immersed in our text “The Polar Express”, recalling our scientific knowledge of materials to understand the changes that happened as a result of the Great Fire of London in Spring and finally, an exciting seaside topic in which we will learn all about the British coast!  The most important support parents can provide in Year 2 is reading every day with their child; look at our video below for top tips for reading at home.
