Mahatma Gandhi Class

Welcome to Year 2!

This year, your class is named after the infamous civil rights activist, Mahatma Gandhi, who’s protests and demonstrations gave India independence from British rule and inspired civil rights movements across the world.

We are a class of hard workers who never give up! We have been learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables over the past half term, and we love to read fiction and non-fiction books every day.

Have a look through our page to see what we are learning about.
