'Living, Loving, Learning Together'

Class 2

Welcome to Class 2!

Welcome to Class 2! We are a year one and two class, having lots of fun through child-led learning. Our teachers are Miss Bedson, Miss Brennan and Miss Muldoon.

We always work hard to do our best and we are becoming fantastic, independent learners. We are lucky enough to have two learning areas, where we can learn through play based experiences as well as through a more formal style classroom, where the teaching meets all of our learning needs. We know how important it is to look after one another and so we all try our best to make sure that everyone in our class is happy and safe.
