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

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

Possible Junior Bake Off contestant here having made their sisters’ birthday cake. Yummy!

Some of our class are completing their home learning at school at the moment.

Learning a new skill of touch typing…


A picture paints a thousand words.

Posted on Tuesday 12 May 2020 by Mrs Freeman

Year 2 are currently learning how to spell there, their and they’re.

Today, one of the children sent in a picture using one of these spellings. It made me stop and think just how proud we are of all our children.

One picture can paint a thousand words!

“They’re helping us.”
