Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 section of the St Ignatius’ website. In this section of the website we aim to include details that may be useful to parents of Year 2 children, such as homework, help videos, spellings and details of Year 2 routines. We will also showcase a selection of the fantastic work that our talented children have produced.

We believe that the best outcomes for your child are achieved by taking a collaborative approach to their learning; therefore if you need to contact us then please do so before or after school.  We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child’s learning journey is a positive one.
