Welcome to year 1 and 2
We have had a fantastic start to our Summer term and we are all excited to be back to school, ready to learn. The children are working hard and have had lots of fun settling back into school routines.
The teaching team in Year 1 and 2 includes Mrs McGrath who is our class teacher and she is supported by Mrs Hyland, our Teaching Assistant and Mrs Duff who provides one to one support within the classroom. This term we are also joined in class by our SCITT Associate Teacher Mr Holmes
In Year 1 and 2 we provide the children with focussed teaching and continuous provision, these activities are enhanced to support the Year 1 and 2 Curriculum and provide the children with challenges.

Mr Holmes will also be continuing with his lunchtime Spanish Club throughout the first half term.
