Happy Friday! 


Congratulations on making it through your first week of Distance Learning. I have been absolutely blown away by all of your work this week. Thank you for working so hard...you are all superstars! 


I can see that you all loved the measuring challenges yesterday. Woody wanted to have a go too so he used his toy fish to measure Jeremy!




Your alliterative sentences about dinosaurs were AMAZING! You are all so creative!

I wanted to share a few examples with you...


Tilly the Tyrannosaurus Rex trotted through the town. (Hetty)

Seven Stegosaurus stomping suddenly swishing their spiky tails. (Max)

The brachiosaurus banged his head on a big brown branch. (Ava)

The piping playful plesiosaur plodded past the people in the park. (Haris)

Timmy Triceratops tickled Toby the T-Rex. (Ethan)

Plesiosaurs play with plants and pick purple, pretty petals. (Sarah)

Tim took a T-Rex on a train. (Theo)

Big Billy Brontosaurus broke billions of big bones busily. (Miles)

Tracy the turquoise and tiny Pteradactyl was tumbling terrifyingly towards the tall trees. (Mirabel)

The angry Apatosaurus ate apple, avocado and anchovy. (Jack)

Iguanodon is allergic to icecream. (Henry)

Seven Steggies sat on Sebby. Sebby soon was squashed! (Sebby)


Here is some exciting news for you all...

Our fabulous Friday Brilliant Book Assemblies will still continue! Each teacher has done a video recording of the child from their class who has impressed them the most this week. Keep an eye out on our school Twitter feed today to find out who is in it from 2C!


I hope you all have a great day and a lovely weekend. Stay safe.


Missing you all.

Good morning! 


I hope you all slept well and are ready for another great day of fun and learning.


It was such a beautiful day yesterday. I know that a lot of you enjoyed time outside walking, skipping, bouncing, playing football and gardening. Woody and Jeremy enjoyed some fun in the sun too.














However, after messing around in the grass I thought it was about time Jeremy had a wash so he had a super spin in the washing machine! Luckily he does not suffer from motion sickness!


Thank you for working so hard yesterday on the tasks I set. I read some great poem reviews and could see that you are becoming more confident at ordering lengths. It was also great to receive some more pictures of your beautiful rainbow pictures as well as photos and videos of you completing the skipping challenge.



I have created a Photos/Videos section on the Year 2 Distance Learning page so that you can all see each other's creations! I've also added some photos of your pets and you all having fun in the sun! Keep sending in photos. I love receiving them!


Have a super day.

Good morning 2C! 


How are you all feeling today? I hope really well and ready and raring to go!


How many of you did the Joe Wicks workout yesterday morning? Jeremy and I loved it! Woody was not so keen and opted for some yoga instead!     




Thank you again for all of the emails. I am so proud of all of you for working so hard. As well as completing the Maths and English tasks I have set, many of you are doing extra activities. These included writing stories, doing jigsaw puzzles, taking part in science experiments, creating beautiful artwork, dancing, singing, running, bouncing, skipping, going on nature walks, computing and much more! Wow! You are all AMAZING!


I hope you have a great day today. 


Missing you all.

Happy Tuesday lovely children!


I hope you all slept well and have woken up feeling refreshed and energised. I know that many of you enjoyed the workout with Joe Wicks at 9.00am yesterday! I am definitely going to do it today and will try to encourage Jeremy and Woody to as well, although as you can see they're both still in bed! Lazy boys!


Thank you so much for all of the emails you sent yesterday with all of your completed distance learning tasks. I was so impressed! Keep up the hard work. I look forward to hearing all about how you get on with today's challenges. 


Look after yourselves. Stay safe!

Good morning 2C!


I hope you all had a lovely weekend and were able to get out in your gardens to enjoy the sunshine! 


It feels so strange that I won't be seeing you today. I will miss all of your smiling faces! I hope you have fun completing the distance learning tasks. I look forward to hearing all about how you get on.
