Mrs Cosgrove P2
Our class teacher is Mrs Cosgrove and our classroom assistants are Mrs Hobson (Monday to Wednesday) and Miss Marie Louise (Thursday and Friday). On our class page you will be able to see all of the wonderful work we have been doing in school. In Primary 2 we love outdoor learning and take lots of our lessons outside to our outdoor classroom. We are super scientists and participate in lots of science investigations throughout the year.
This year we are continuing our Shared Education project with our friends from Harpur’s Hill. This involves three joint Play Based Learning sessions per term.
Primary 2 are fantastic Eco Warriors and are working very hard to ensure we maintain our Eco Schools Green Flag. Lots of our class work throughout the year contributes towards our Eco Schools topics.
