We've been enjoying sharing stories in lots of different ways at the start of Year 2. One of our favourite ways to share a story is with it bought to life for us to shared read altogether through the Vooks story books. Perhaps you'd like to read one together at home?

Laurel Class

In Laurel Class Miss Johnson teaches Monday - Wednesday and then Mrs Palmer teaches on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Kingsley, Mrs Norman and Mrs Booty help with everyone's learning. We have different areas in our classroom to explore lots of things and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn in a way that suits them; creative projects, an investigation station, a reading corner, outside area and lots, lots more.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions about what we do in Laurel Class and Year 2!
