Welcome to Year 2!

My name is Miss Costen and I teach Kingfishers. I enjoy teaching Maths and I love reading whole class stories. I am also Computing Lead at Holy Trinity. In my spare time I love spending time with family and friends as well as looking after my family dogs. 

My name is Mrs Hoyte and I teach Nightingales. I enjoy teaching English, acting and I love learning new facts. In my spare time I enjoy making hand made cards, making short videos, watching quiz shows and going for long walks. 

We set high standards throughout all areas of learning and the pupils are encouraged to excel. Together as a team, we are also here to ensure that we deliver the curriculum in a fun and engaging way to provide differentiated learning for pupils.
