Thank you for continuing to send us your home learning or other activities. We always enjoy receiving your messages.

Here’s an update from this week’s learning with some real life science.

Enjoying the school video – have you seen it yet?

Wow – snail eggs!

Observing caterpillars while they grow and turn into chrysalis. Finally, the butterflies appear.

Imaginative artwork

Potatoes harvested after scraps were planted at the start of lockdown.

More capacity maths, tessellations and Andy Goldsworthy art…

More great learning…

Posted on Saturday 20 June 2020 by Mrs Taylor

We are so proud to still see fantastic learning taking place at home after such a long time away from school.

Mrs Freeman and I will be posting the home learning again from next week. We are also based in school now so we’ll aim to reply to any messages as soon as we can. Here’s a reminder of our contact details – [email protected] and [email protected]

Also, a big thank you to Mr Wilks who has been posting the home learning for a few weeks.

Firstly, well done to Rufus, Olivia and Theo who have reached their next Lexia level.

Here’s a selection of what your Year 2 friends have been up to this week – it’s been another busy one.

Busy Bees

Mrs Taylor and Mrs Freeman really enjoyed being able to catch up with lots of you over the phone last week. It was great to speak to the children and hear all about the different things you have all been up to.

Have a look at some of these photos to find out what your classmates have been doing at home.

Brilliant Year 2 Learning!

Hello, Year 2. Hope you’ve had a good week back to learning. Thank you to Mr Wilks who has been keeping you busy with your home learning while Mrs Freeman and I are back at school working with the children who have started to return.

We miss you all lots and please do keep sending emails so we can see what you’ve been doing.

Another busy week at home…

Posted on Friday 22 May 2020 by Mrs Freeman

Another week has passed by. Well done to everyone for continuing with your home learning as much as you can.

This week, we have been scientists, spellers, artists, designers, photographers, poets, clock watchers and much much more.

Enjoy the weekend and stay safe!

The scores are in!

Posted on Friday 22 May 2020 by Mrs Taylor

Last week, the Year 2 adults were set a challenge to try and identify members of the class based on their baby photos. We have thoroughly enjoyed looking through the photos and trying to match them up – some being easier than others! All the staff would like to say a big thank you for giving us this challenge. It was great fun and it definitely made us smile.

As requested, here are the scores and, with no cheating, the winner is…

Mrs Maqbool who felt very proud to get them all right and get 22 points!

In second place was Mrs Bharath with 20 points.

In joint third place was Mrs Freeman and Mrs Taylor both with 18 points.

Thank you to all the families who took part in this challenge.

A week at Moortown

Posted on Monday 18 May 2020 by Mr Owen

Hi everyone,

How are you all? I hope you’ve had a good weekend and are raring to go for another week of home learning.

We had a good week at school last week. We made about as much sweet music as 8 children under 10 can make with xylophones…

We constructed weird and wonderful creations with bricks…

and tried something new when we made some lovely artwork with coloured sand.

What have you tried that was new?

Home learning

Posted on Saturday 16 May 2020 by Mrs Taylor

What great expressive reading of the recent fluency text!

Using Oxford Owl online is a great way to read a variety of texts.

Another creative design of the Eiffel Tower and a visit to see the real thing!

Wow – this model must taken some time and patience.

I also managed to find a photo from visiting Paris 15 years ago!

We loved this junk modelling – combining design technology, science and money education!

More creative junk modelling

Great money education and homophone spelling learning.

Science – experiments and trees

Keeping calm with some yoga
