Year 2 are supported in their learning by Ms Griffiths, Miss Hunter and Miss Gilmore. The children work with different members of staff throughout the day, lead by Ms Griffiths, to help support their learning.

We aim to build upon the knowledge and skills gained in Year 1 by providing them with a curriculum that is creative, exciting and engaging for all learners. In Year 2 we are trying to encourage children to become more independent in the way they think and learn, so please try to let your children organise themselves when they come in in the mornings.  Parental support makes a huge difference to your child’s education.  We are lucky to have such supportive parents at Church of England School of the Resurrection.  We would appreciate continued support and encouragement at home to reinforce the learning that is taking place in the classroom.
