Year 2

Welcome back!

Welcome to the start of another school year. It has been really lovely to welcome your children back, and we are all looking forward to a fabulous term of learning. As you know, Year 2 is a very important year, as we have the KS1 SATs coming up in May. We will be working hard to make sure that your child is ready for these, but we cannot do this without your help. Thank you in advance for all your support – it is always greatly appreciated.

Additional Responsibilities

 

This is only my second year working at Grinling Gibbons, but already, it feels like I have been here for much longer. After teaching for nearly thirty years across a range of schools in London, I can honestly say, that this is a really special school, filled with enthusiastic, polite, hard-working children, who have a real love for learning, and who can’t wait to come to school every morning. The same could be said of all our teachers and support staff too!

This year I am teaching in Reception, and I am always amazed at the new learning I experience every day. I hope I will be here for many years to come.

Lesley Lawrence
Teaching Assistant Year 2

Additional Roles

 

I have worked at Grinling Gibbons for over 20 years. I am proud to be part of such an amazing school and community. The children I work with are all wonderful with a love for learning, and this in itself, makes teaching fun and exciting.

I enjoy coming to work each day, and I myself am always learning new things. This helps me develop as a professional, and I always strive to be a positive role model for the children I care for.
