Year 2: Willow and Birch Classes

Welcome to Year 2 Birch and Willow Classes. We are taught by Miss Hathaway and Miss Berry. Our learning is supported by Mrs Delaney, Mrs Ledwich and Mrs McCaskie.

What we are learning...

This term we are starting a new and exciting topic called Wriggle and Crawl. We will be focussing on minibeasts and are really excited to explore and learn more about insect adaptations and their habitats.

A quick reminder!

Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school (t-shirt, hooded or zipper jacket, joggers/shorts, pumps or trainers). Our P.E lessons will take place on Wednesday mornings. Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school, these can be purchased from the school office at a cost of £1. Thanks!

Let's get creative!

Each week we are developing our skills in painting and drawing. We have so far been focussing on the techniques of sketching and stippling. The children have created some wonderful artwork in their sketchbooks. Look out for some pictures of this coming soon! 


The links below will take you to some short videos, which we have looked at to develop our skills. Why not have a go at home!
