Year 2 Mrs Boardman

Hello! My name is Mrs Boardman and I have the pleasure of teaching all of our lovely Year 2 children, during this fun and productive year, supported in class by Mrs Leadbetter. In Year 2 we become really independent learners. The children develop a 'can-do' attitude in a positive and encouraging environment. The curriculum is challenging and exciting, providing the children with as many positive learning experiences as possible. Highlights whilst in Year 2 include exploring the outdoor school environment through Forest School each Friday, going on a café visit then designing, making and evaluating their own sandwiches, visits in the local community including the library and hopefully a return to Farmer Ted’s during the Summer months.

The children are all becoming enthusiastic readers and to ensure that they continue to make the best progress possible, it is vital for them to read at home each night along with being heard read whilst in school.

Should you have any questions about teaching and learning in Year 2, or any worries or concerns, please don’t hesitate in contacting me. Your continued support is very much appreciated as we move forward on our learning journey together.

Thank you to all who attended our class assembly. We were so proud of how well the children all performed, how beautifully they sang and how clearly they all spoke. The children were clearly able to convey the message about how God is present in new beginnings to the rest of the school.

Well done Year 2!

Year 2 enjoyed speaking to our friend from the British Legion to find out about what things were like when their Grandparents were children.

Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic trip to Tatton Hall and gardens where we got to take part in two Traditional Tales workshops exploring both the mansion house and gardens while meeting characters like Cinderella, the Queen, the maid and of course the Fairy Godmother. Unfortunately Prince Charming was out riding on the day of our visit! We experienced what life would have been like in the past living in the mansion house or as a servant and also explored the beautiful gardens on the estate.
