Year 2

Miss Mitchell (Class Teacher), Mrs Potts (Teaching Assistant)
I have more than 25 years teaching experience having taught across Early Years and KS1 in six different schools all over the country.

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.

Year 2 Scientists

Year 2 enjoyed a fun session with Professor Brainstorm learning all about light and sound. The children found out how sounds can be changed, how shadows are made, what happens when colours are mixed and how our eyes can play tricks in optical illusions.

Working with an athlete in Year 2

The long jumper Scott Hall worked with Year 2 inspiring them to be the best they can be. The children were  enthusiastic about learning about a new sport and really enjoyed his workshop.
