Year 2 Class News


Posted on Wednesday 15 July 2020 by Mrs Freeman

It’s the end of the school year! All the staff in Year 2 would like to say WELL DONE and THANK YOU for being such a great, hardworking class.


Here’s a poem I’ve written for you. I hope you enjoy it!


Amelia, every day you make me smile,

And Tommy tells a joke, every once in a while.

Betsy a gymnast through and through,

And Javier, your confidence just grew and grew.

Penelope, your artistic eye just blew me away,

And Inaaya, the school rules you always obey.

Ehtasham your manners are great,

And Omar, remember those Skittles you ate!

Evie’s a great friend to one and all,

And Zhuokai’s very talented when playing football.

Ralph your efforts in school are simply superb,

And Moosa, is ‘jumping’ a verb?

Saif, such a character, who will be missed,

And Hafsa, when hula hooping, can really twist.

Leon is patient, kind and caring,

And Jiya is too, especially when sharing.

Theo, your head’s overflowing with fiction and facts,

And Kian, is talented with add and subtract.

Edith, a pleasure to work with and teach,

And Sunny, is now confident with his speech.

Cate, you bring sunshine into our class,

And, Danny, when given a challenge, will never pass.

Evan, your outstanding efforts should be praised,

And Ewan, with your worldly knowledge, you always amaze.

Hardev, your reading has got better and better,

And Jaiden, a developing, spelling checker.

Parnita, a hidden gem, her hand goes up more,

And Olivia, in many ways you’ve really matured.

Rufus, we’ve really got to know you,

And Sienna, your spelling scores were impressive, too!

Well, Year 2, the time is now here,

To say farewell, and a great BIG cheer.

Each one of you has progressed in many ways,

And, as you know, we love to praise.

Year 3 is waiting around the bend,

Good luck to you all we’d like to send!







Hello soon to be Year 3’s!

Hello Year 2’s, it’s Mr Wain here!

As you probably already know, I’m going to be your teacher in September when you come up to Year 3!

I’m really, really excited to get to you know all and I’ve heard really good things about you already!

I’ve made a short video for you which tells you a little bit about me, who will be in our class next year, where our classroom is and some of the things to expect!

Latest update

Posted on Sunday 12 July 2020 by Mrs Taylor

As we come towards the end of the school year, we are so impressed to still receive messages with great learning and other experiences you are having while being at home.

This week, we’ve heard a great story from one of our class mates who, during lockdown, has been selling old toys and books on a stall to raise money for the NHS, their football club and Hope Pastures Donkey Sanctuary. They raised an amazing total of £135! They even had the opportunity to meet some of the donkeys as a thank you for supporting the charity. Fantastic effort!

We’ve also been hearing about visiting the sporting hero’s scarecrow hunt in Boston Spa, lots more yummy fruit kebabs, making home made lemonade, virtual sports day (including the gymnastics challenge), creating some Warli Art (a very famous form of art in India), achieving best young football player at their football team awards and of course, some fantastic home learning.

Also, well done to Rufus, Evan, Kian and Tommy who have achieved their next level on Lexia. Great work!

Virtual sports day results and skipping challenges

Posted on Wednesday 08 July 2020 by Mrs Taylor

Well done to all children who took part, at home and at school, in the virtual sports day yesterday.

The results are in and can be accessed here.

Here’s our overall school results for each challenge (out of 217 schools).

Netball challenge 56th

Keepie uppie challenge 27th

Rugby challenge 93rd

Speed bounce challenge 46th


Skipping challenges

If you are interested in trying another physical activity challenge, Jodi from Skipping School – a regular visitor to school, is running a daily skipping skill challenge this week. Sadly, Year 2 and Year 4 have missed out on their skipping festivals this year so these videos will help the children to recap the skills they have learnt at school.


What’s been going on at home this week?

Posted on Thursday 02 July 2020 by Mrs Freeman

Here’s a quick catch up of some the super activities happening at home. This week we’ve had caterpillars, plants (and worm juice), painting, four leaf clovers, conjunctions, eggsellent experiments, reading thermometers, temperature adjectives, super heroes, transition to Year 3 activities and two HUGE fruit kebabs!

It’s been great to see all the photos that have been sent this week – thank you.

This week’s update

Posted on Friday 26 June 2020 by Mrs Taylor

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…

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

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.

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