Kipling is an incredible class full of fabulous children!

We are named after the inspiring author, Rudyard Kipling, who wrote ‘The Jungle Book’, which highlights the brave and adventurous spirit which embodies our classroom.

In Kipling, we expect only the best from our wonderful classmates. We are a vibrant, bubbly group of Year 2 children, who love to listen to stories and be creative. We enjoy learning in a variety of different ways and are working extremely hard to be the best we can be!

Through a calm, happy learning environment we aim to build resilient learners who look forward to walking into the classroom every morning. We strive to demonstrate our school’s core values -respect, responsibility, resilience – in everything we do. Children and staff work together to develop aspirations and positive attitudes to learning throughout our broad and exciting curriculum. As a class, we love exploring new topics and learning about the world around us in all kinds of ways. Please ask us what we’ve been learning about – we can’t wait to share it with you!
