Welcome to Year 2's Class Page!
Each half-term, this class page will be updated with information regarding our learning in school.


In English this half-term we will begin by reading 'Grandad's Secret Giant' by David Litchfield, a lovely story about Billy's quest to help his Grandad's Secret Giant feel welcome in their town.
