In Year Two, children are able to progress in their independence and their level of responsibility is increased and they are expected to be excellent role models for other children across the school. Our goal is to inspire the children to continue to grow in their love of learning, through building on key skills such as their resilience, determination, curiosity, ambition and problem solving.
