Year 2Miss Mitchell (Class Teacher), Mrs Potts (Teaching Assistant)
I have worked at Clover Hill since 2007, spending 8 years in Reception before moving to Year 2 in 2015.
As well as teaching my class I am also the Key Stage 1 leader and have overall school responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Modern Foreign Languages.
In Year 2 we are lucky to have our own Teaching Assistant, Mrs Potts who works hard in class supporting the children every morning. She has been a Clover Hill parent and has worked at the school for 8 years both as a lunchtime supervisor, Special Needs Assistant and Teaching Assistant.
Year 2 is an extremely important year, teaching a lot of new knowledge and skills and preparing the children to leave Key Stage 1 and move onwards and upwards to Key stage 2 and beyond.

Two members of a Newcastle mosque came into school to talk to the children in Key stage 1 about their religion. They talked about their mosque, how they pray and about their holy book the Quor'an.
Year 2 enjoyed a fun skipping session lead by Whickham School.
What a very busy day we have enjoyed at Clover Hill. So much to celebrate for Year 6 and Year 2 and of course a special wedding picnic in honour of Prince Harry.
Today the children of Clover Hill were very lucky to have lots of visitors in school. Not only did we have school Governors, Mr Stroud and Cllr Ord, we also had The Mayor of Gateshead (Pauline Dillon), Len Burns (the District President of the Rotary Club), Elaine...

Year 2 had a fantastic time at Whickham School's dance workshop. They learned about different styles of dance such as disco, rock and roll and jazz.
