Welcome to the Year Two's class page! 

Year Two at All Saints' continues to be an exciting year as they continue their journey through school. 

Our Year Two classroom is a positive learning environment where praise and encouragement are used to motivate and support all of the children. All we ask is that every child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning where they are willing to have a go and to never give up when the going gets tough. The nature of the classroom will nurture the self-esteem of the children, equipping them with the confidence to believe in themselves.
