Hi Class 2,

Gosh, these are the last two days of term! How has that happened?

What do you and your family think your own qualities are? Try recording them on the template of a person below and you can also decorate and collage it too using cut out pictures and your own drawings. For more details, please see the project below.

Class 2 Home Learning - Wednesday 15th July

Hi Class 2,

Wow this week is going quickly! And it'll soon be the holiday!

We're concentrating on transition again as a result and today we'd love you to talk to your family about the friendships you've made this year. Who is important to you and why? Have a think about what you are most going to miss and then ask your family to help you draw around your hand on paper and carefully cut it out. Next, draw or write a good bye message to a friend, the class or your teachers.

For more details, please check out the project below and remember we'd love to see your work and hear your goodbyes :) We'll all miss you very much and we're sure you'll have lots to look forward to next year also.

Class 2 Home Learning - Tuesday 14th July

Good Morning Class 2!

Today's transition activity focussing on thinking back over all you've done and achieved this year and reflecting on what makes you proud. What are your proudest achievements in your learning? What are you most proud of outside of the classroom too?

Have a think about what you're most proud of and design an achievement medal. You could cut a circle out of cardboard or have a star-shaped medal. Go to town with your decorations if you can - after all, you've earned this! You could paint it gold or use silver foil to make it shiny. If you have ribbons or string you could also wear your medal with pride and if hold a ceremony during which you're presented with your medal!

We'd love to hear how you get on! Well done on all of your achievements Class 2 - we're extremely proud of you all :)

Class 2 Home Learning - Monday 13th July

Hi Year 2,

Welcome to the final week of term! Wow, where has the time gone? This week's project concentrates on transition and today we'd love you to create a 'Memory Jar' to help you cherish all your memories from this year forever! You could be super creative and decorate your jar and use different colours to show different types of memories. For example, you could use blue for friendship, yellow for teachers, red for favourite lessons and so on. You could include the school badge, drawings of your favourite moments and anything else to personalise your jar. For the finishing touches, try tying ribbons around your jar or gluing pictures around the outside. Please do share them with us and let us know what your favourite memories are!

If you'd like to get really creative with your decorations, watch this video for more ideas about how to decorate your jar:

Class R, Class 1 and Class 2, as we can’t all get together for a special assembly like we usually would in the last week of term, I thought it would be lovely to get together online. So next Tuesday, please join us (via Zoom) to have a chat with me and to have a catch up with the rest of your class! (Both in and out of school.)

We will be emailing out the Zoom link for your class prior to each 'meeting', so please keep an eye on your inboxes! 

See you Tuesday!

Class 2 Home Learning - Thursday 9th July

Good Morning Class 2!

We hope you're enjoying our Celebrations theme this week!

Today, why not try the dance activity from the project below! Gather everyone around the computer and listen to and sing along with the song, 'Celebration'. This is one of our all time favourites! As you sing, can you add actions to the dance as well? Try performing it for your family and have a concert, and do record your performance as we'd love to see it too!

If that's got you in the party spirit, why not try another of the creative activities from the project and become a party planner! You could plan a party for a person of your choice and write a guest list, create invitations and make a list of everything you need from food to banners, balloons and party poppers! You could choose songs to play and write a shopping list for the buffet. Don't forget our invitations too ;-) You could invite just those who are able to attend during lockdown or plan for the party-of-all-parties to celebrate the end of lockdown which will hopefully be something to look forward to!
