Miss Sutcliffe and Mrs Lishman

Welcome to Year 2! Our teachers are Miss Sutcliffe and Mrs Lishman. In Year 2 we are learning about Street Detectives and Remembrance. In Street Detectives we will be looking at our local area of Teams. We will be using aerial photographs to devise our own maps and plans, and will identify human and physical geographical features within Teams. In our Remembrance topic we will be learning about World War I and thinking carefully about how and why we remember those who died in this conflict.  Please visit our page and see what we are up to.
