Welcome to Cedar Class

We are in Year 2 and Year 3. 

Mrs Bakary is our class teacher and Mrs Dixon, Mrs Cozens Mrs Statton are our teaching assistants.

Mrs Skinner teaches in Cedar Class on Tuesday mornings.

This year in Cedar Class we have 25 amazing children who all love to learn, investigate and explore.

 In Cedar Class, we pride ourselves on having a positive attitude to work. We enjoy making our brains stronger by challenging ourselves.

We celebrate success and know  that when something is hard, we just haven't mastered it "yet"!

We are all good friends in Cedar Class. We love to play games and enjoy using our school environment to have fun together.

We respect, tolerate and listen to each other so our classroom is a happy place to learn.
