Year 2

The Class Teachers for Year 2 are Mrs Caswell (2C) and Miss Powell (2P)

Welcome to the Year 2 homepage. Here you will find some information about what makes Year 2 so fantastic, as well as information about the teaching team and the curriculum. If you have any other questions about your child's progress or how your child is getting on in school, please either catch us in the morning or afternoon if your question is brief, or speak to us about making a before or after-school (preferable) appointment.




Hello, I am Mrs Caswell, I have been a teacher at St Matthews since 2013. As well as teaching my class I share responsibility for leading RE with Mrs Burse and also take a lead on assessment across the whole school. My favourite subjects are Science and Maths and I hope that my enthusiasm for these subjects will develop some scientists of the future. When I am not at school I enjoy reading and creating cross stitch pictures.




Hello, I’m Miss Powell and I joined St Matthew’s in 2013. I have a passion for languages and history, love to draw and paint, and am a keen referee on the infants’ football pitch. In the classroom, I endeavor to enable every child to fulfill their learning and personal potential. Last but not least I love to use my linguistic skills with any children with Spanish, Portugese or French as their first language.






I'm Mrs Lawrence, a Teaching Assistant and have been here for 9 years.I am also a Governor. I teach a maths intervention programme called 'First Class@ Number'. I enjoy listening to music and watching football.






Hello my name is Miss Kleyn! I started as a TA in November 2014. In the mornings I read with individual readers. In my spare time I like going to the theatre with my family. On Sundays I run 'Trackers' (Sunday School) at St Matthew's Church.
