Welcome to Year 2
Teachers - Mrs Houlston (M-W) and Mrs Griffiths (W-F)

Teaching assistant- Miss Holding


Welcome to Year 2! 
We hope you had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready to enjoy the summer term! 


A little about us:


We both love working together and enjoy planning fun lessons for our class. We both have two children and enjoy getting outdoors with our families. We both have special talents - Mrs Houlston is a great swimmer and Mrs Griffiths is a gymnast!


Miss Holding will be moving up with you to Year 2. She is very excited to be working with you all again. Miss Holding is very creative and is a very talented make up artist!

Our first topic in the Summer term is ‘Wonderful Wellington’  where we will be learning all about our local area. In geography we will be using maps to look at the different features in our area. We will be listening to the story of The Wrekin Giant in English and have a go at writing our own versions. 

In Science we are looking at the different parts of plants and the lifecycle of a plant.


In maths, we will continue to look at number and place value: estimating, counting and comparing quantities. We will then progress onto learning an efficient way to add and subtract numbers using number lines. Later in the term we look at symmetry in geometry and also multiplication and division.
