Mrs Gallagher’s Class

Welcome to Year 1/2!

Your class teacher is Mrs Gallagher who works closely alongside the class teaching assistant, Mrs McNaboe.


In Year 1/2 we offer the children a broad and balanced curriculum which develops their independence, creative skills and inquisitive minds. The children explore this through a variety of exciting topic themed learning journeys throughout the year as follows:

  • Land Ahoy!
  • Muck, Mess and Mixtures
  • Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
  • Wriggle and Crawl

We immerse our classrooms at the start of each exciting topic in order to engage the children’s interest in their learning. We also go on fun day trips, have school visitors and complete an expressive project at the end of each topic to celebrate and share what we have learnt. You can find further information on the curriculum that we will be following this year by looking at the half-termly newsletters. The links to these newsletters are at the bottom of the page.

Our classroom is a supportive and vibrant environment where the children are encouraged to not only progress throughout the curriculum, but grow in confidence and enjoy their learning as well. To take a closer look at how we learn and see the amazing work  that is currently happening in Year 1/2, please take a look at our blog page:

Finally, our door is always open should you wish to ask any questions or discuss any concerns with a member of staff.
