Welcome to the Robins.
Miss Wood currently works on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Fairbain will be working on Fridays.
Miss Farrell is in the Robins class on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
In Year 2 we are proud of how friendly and warm welcoming our class is alongside showing how hard each individual works in our learning environment. Within the class we hope to provide an engaging and stimulating curriculum accessible to all children to achieve the best of their ability.

Focus Author - Julia Donaldson
As a class we have enjoyed reading a range of stories by Julia Donaldson. They are a firm favourite in our class and are often picked to share at the end of the day during story-time or during independent reading.
Children are already making connections between the books and notice that she uses rhyming words.
If your child has a book at home by Julia Donaldson and wishes to share it with the class during story-time, we would love to have them brought in.
2nd Focus Author - Allan Ahlberg
As a class we are beginning to look at our new focus author - Allan Ahlberg. At the end of Autumn Two the children wrote a Non Chronological Report on him to gain an insight into his life and writing.
Once a week we will be sharing some of his stories at the end of the day.
If your child has an Allan Ahlberg story that they would like to share with the class we would love them to bring it in.
