Sorry it has been a while. I hope you are all staying safe at home. It has been a pleasure seeing what some of you have been up to at home. It has made me think about how we can show support for the key workers who are keeping us safe and helping us in many different ways. On the school blog, you can see some children have been making key worker scarecrows and I wanted to challenge you to put your drawing and colouring skills to the test! I would love for you to pick a key worker and draw them however you like. Here are a list of just some key workers you could do:
shopkeeper/ shop assistant
There are many more to choose, these are just examples. Pick your favourite to create, label your drawing and send them to the school email address.
Above are some example pictures. I look forward to seeing your drawings.
I hope you are all doing well and managing to enjoy this weeks sunny weather safely. Yesterday I watched a program on the Great Fire of London and it reminded me of all the fantastic diary entries we wrote when we studied this in our English lessons.
So this week I would like to hear what you have been getting up to whilst we have not been in school. It would be great to read a diary entry from you explaining what you and your families have been getting up to.
I hope you are all safe and well. I thought I’d share these photos of a family members newborn lambs. They are two weeks old and are being fed by bottle three times a day. I usually go to see them and help out with this.
The farm is extra busy as they can’t have as much help as usual due to lockdown, so they all have to help one another.
I’ve been helping out my elderly parents by getting their food shopping for them. Have you been helping your families? I know lots of you are great helpers in school.
I hope you are all having a good week and are managing to stay safe at home.
As the weather has taken a turn for the worse this week, I have been doing some spring cleaning in my house and have found lots of different materials.
We looked at different types of materials before christmas and you were all very good at putting these different materials into different categories. So I was hoping you could help your grown ups at home and show me the different types of materials you have in your homes.
I have included a link to a short video to help recap what we learnt and I look forward to seeing what you find.
I hope you have been enjoying the lovely weather so far.
While at home I have been wondering what you have all been doing while at home. It has been delightful to see what some of you have been doing with your family! I have seen a lot of creativity.
I would love to read a letter about what you have done during your time at home staying safe. I have written my own letter below if you are interested in some of the things I have been doing:
Dear Year 2,
I have been missing our time together in the classroom and I have been trying to keep myself busy. I am writing to tell you some of the things I have been doing while staying at home.
I have been playing lots of board games including chess and scrabble to keep my brain busy and to have some fun at the same time. In addition to playing games I have watched a lot of Disney movies. As you know they are my favourite! Some of them were Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, the new Aladdin and the Toy Story movies. When I was shopping for food, I decided to get some ingredients to make a variety of smoothies. Some of the flavours were strawberry, raspberry and cocount. They were all very tasty and refeshing to drink. Everyday I have been playing with my dog Teddy in the back garden and I take him for walks so we both get the exercise we need. You can see some pictures of him below. I hope all of you are staying safe and I hope to find out what some of you have been up to as well.
Good afternoon everybody I hope you have all managed to enjoy the sun safely this week. I have been in school this week with some of our children and we would like to share the different activities that we have done with you in the sun.
During this week we have painted a rainbow out of different pebbles from the Early Years garden. We have also made made some biscuits and cakes, which we have enjoyed eating whilst we have watched our afternoon film. Yesterday we managed to wash all the bikes and trucks, although we all got a little wet completing this activity. To finish this week we have been playing in the mud kitchen making some exciting recipes for Mr Bean and Mrs Weedall to try.
We hope to see you all again very soon. Enjoy your weekend
Good afternoon Year 2. I hope you are all managing to enjoy the lovely weather we have had this week safely.
Whilst I have been in school this week, I have been looking over some of the science work we did in the last week we were in school. If you remember, we were looking at the different things animals need to survive in the places they live. I was wondering if anyone could help me and design a habitat for some of these animals?
Remember they will need a place for their shelter, some water to keep them hydrated, food to give them energy and air so they can breath.
Once you have created your habitat, don’t forget to send it to the school email so I can see what you have created. I will put the ones I get on the blog for your friends to see.
I hope you are all continuing to stay safe. Our last Science topic was about habitats and it was interesting to know all of the different places where animals live and survive. Try discussing with your family and see if you can answer these questions.
Can you think of an animal that lives in each of these habitats?
Can you also explain why they live in that habitat?
Example: I know that snakes are cold-blooded animals so they need to live in warm habitats like a desert.
I wonder what you will think of. Stay safe and I will write again soon. 🙂
