Miss Sutcliffe, Miss Maxwell and Miss Greenwell

Welcome to year 2! Our teachers are Miss Sutcliffe, Miss Maxwell and Miss Greenwell. In Year 2 we are learning about Me and My World and Grace Darling. In Me and My World we will be looking at the differences between hot and cold areas of the world and comparing the capital cities of the UK and Ecuador. In our Grace Darling topic we will be investigating the life of Grace Darling and why she is a nationally recognised figure.  Please visit our page and see what we are up to.
