Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 Cherry Tree Class. I am Miss Harrison and I am the class teacher.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the first half term of our Year 2 journey together. You are all beginning to become more independent learners. We have been working as a team to become the very best we can be.

In our class, we have combined learning new skills with having fun; joining in enthusiastically with all curriculum areas and will continue to do so. We have had lots of opportunities to share and celebrate our achievements, both from school and at home, with our friends, teachers and the rest of the school and I’m sure there are lots more of these to come. We will ask even more thoughtful and exciting questions about what we are learning throughout the year. By working hard with our parents and carers at home as well as giving 100% at all times in school, we will continue to achieve lots of successes that we can all be proud of.

Shoot for the moon; even if you miss you will end up amongst the stars! And remember, a day without laughter is a day wasted!
