Hello everybody, this is Mrs Simmonds. I teach the 'wise old owls' in Year 2. This is an extremely important year when your child will leave the Foundation phase in the Summer term and embark upon their transition to Year 3. Therefore within this year your child will be supported academically and prepared for their next steps with sensitivity. Your child will participate in a curriculum that is enriched with exciting and stimulating activities that will engage and challenge them. This is a year when you will be aware of your child not only developing in greater independence, but also in greater confidence. The challenges awaiting the pupils will be action packed and relevant to the children's interests. This is what I strive to provide for each and every pupil in their transition year.
