Orangutans - Year 2

Welcome to Orangutans!







We are a year 2 class!  We have very positive attitudes towards learning and embrace new learning experiences and challenges! We never give up even when something can seem tricky, you will often hear us saying "we can't do it YET" or "just keep trying". We are very hardworking, and understand mistakes are part of learning. We work collaboratively when working in groups or with a partner; we love to share our learning, ideas and experiences with each other. Miss Booth likes our lessons to be fun, enjoyable and interactive; she encourages us to immerse ourselves in our learning. She has high expectations for us and wants us to achieve the best whilst being the best versions of ourselves we can be! We are kind, caring and thoughtful friends, looking out for one another and comforting each other if we are feeling sad or hurt.
