Year 2 Class News

Dem bones, dem bones ……….

Posted on Thursday 07 May 2020 by Mrs Freeman

This week, Year 2 have been enjoying some scary learning based on extracts from The Funnybones books.

When they had completed their reading task, the children were asked to get creative and make skeletons using materials they could find around the house.

Here are some homemade Funnybones characters.

Another great week of home learning!

First of all, click here for an important message we’ve received from one of our class mates. As well as staying connected with your family and friends, who you can’t see right now, it’s great that you are staying connected with us.

Here’s some more of your home learning and other activities you’ve been doing to keep busy.


Well done, Javier for reaching your next level. Great work!


Fluency texts and Pobble comprehension





Using Connect 4 to learn halves


Staying safe online


Drawing maps with keys


Exploring for plants

Can you identify these plants that one of our class mates found?

I’m looking forward to testing out an app called Picture This to help to identify plants when you are out and about.

Here’s what else you’ve been up to this week.


Working with clay

Cracking codes

Making scrapbooks

Making a lava lamp (and being a safe scientist)

Playing scrabble

Finally, sit back and enjoy this brilliant Stop Motion movie.

The Book of Hopes

The Book of Hopes: Words and Pictures to Comfort, Inspire and Entertain Children in Lockdown


Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this remarkable collection collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures with you. It was contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.

You can read it here.

Each text has been selected to give children hope, to entertain, to warm the heart and, though I’ve only read a few, they certainly fit that description. I’d definitely recommend giving them a go – they’re probably aimed more at KS2 children, but some would be great to read to younger children.

The collection is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals.

Take care,

Mr Owen

Today at Moortown Primary

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all well. We just wanted to share some of what we’ve been doing this week, here at MPS.

As well as doing our home learning, we’ve being gradually building up and adventure/assault course in the playground over the week. Each day it got a bit bigger and a bit fancier. Today, it became HUGE – it went all the way around the middle building!

The tunnel proved the trickiest, with quite a few of us getting stuck and looking like the Hungry Catapillar!

We also drew beautiful pictures in chalk.

And did a spot of gardening…

Stay safe everyone. We’re missing you all!

Mr Owen

Arrays everywhere you look!

Posted on Thursday 23 April 2020 by Mrs Freeman

It’s almost the end of another week. Thanks again for your photos – they’ve been amazing!

All of you have been finding arrays everywhere.

The Bog Baby story has been very exciting and there has been some excellent character descriptions and sequencing work.

Finally, a few extra ‘crafty‘ pictures to share.

Fractions, fluency, fresh air and fun
