Welcome to our Year 2 page. My name is Mr Musgrave and I am the class teacher.

I am supported by a Learning Support Assistants, Mrs Baker.

In Year 2 we are starting to develop our independent learning skills. We will be learning lots of amazing topics over the year including significant historical figures, all about countries of the UK, making an algorithm, video making, Mondrian art and many more. We continue to improve our phonics to help us read independently. We also listen to and talk about stories to help us improve our language and vocabulary.

Dear St Hugh’s Primary School,

I met with your class today to do a session on space in the Planetarium. I was really impressed with them and their behaviour in the museum was outstanding. They represented your school to an extremely high standard and should be seen as ambassadors for the school. For a KS1 class to be leading the way in the museum today was remarkable. We had classes from KS2 to KS3 and your class stood out the most. There have also been additional comments made by other members of staff that have interacted with your class today. They have stated similar things to what I have. You should be very proud of them. I’ve informed my managers about your class as it’s one of the things we like to highlight in the museum. I also spoke to the head of the museum and introduced her to one of your teachers as she wanted to say that she was impressed too. Thank you for coming to visit and thank you for a great session. Looking forward to seeing more of your pupils in the future. They were a delight to teach.
