Hi all! What a busy first week we have had! I must say it was so lovely having a classroom full of children again! Just look at all of their smiling faces. Oh how I had missed it!
I have been so impressed with the children’s cooperation and patience this week with the new routines and regulations in place as we operate our way through these different times. I have also been blown away by the children’s resilience and bravery returning to school after such a long time off. The way they have adjusted to the ‘new normal’ and adapted back to school life is truly admirable and it has been a pleasure to have a sense of normality again. They have all been so excited to be back in school again, as have I and I am looking forward to the learning we have in place for next week.
Thank you to Lucas for this lovely picture he sent me at the beginning of lock down. I have been waiting patiently to share with you and thought it would only be right to share on the last day of term. Thank you again Lucas, I love it.
Also thank you for all the lovely emails with your kind words I have been receiving, it is really appreciated .
I just wanted to say thank you so much for being a fantastic class this year and for all your hard work. I thoroughly loved teaching you all and you made me proud to be your teacher everyday. I was devastated our year together was cut short but you have done a fantastic job of continuing your learning at home. I have loved seeing you all on our Google Meets and on transition day last Monday. Thank you to those who attended. I wish you all the best for Year 3 and will hopefully see you around! (I’ll only be in the classroom next door).
Parents, thank you so much for your continued support throughout this year, particularly within the last few months having to take over my role as teacher! I couldn’t have done it without you. You have all done an amazing job supporting your child.
I hope you all have a lovely, restful summer break.
Thank you so much to all of you who came to our transition morning yesterday. I was thrilled to see almost the full class!! We had lots of fun catching up, reflecting on the year, playing games and having a story before Miss Allison came. Thankfully the rain held off for us too!
Well done to Renaya, Lewan, Yumin and Leah for achieving their 100% attendance awards from Ms Price.
As a class we also achieved ‘Punctuality Champions’ in the year group. Well done to you all as you achieved this together 2HL!! So proud and well deserved.
I hope you are well and had a lovely week. We have only one more week of school to go and I am SO excited to see you all on Monday for our transition.
This week Ghulam-Ali has been completing his daily White Rose Maths learning. Well done Ghulam-Ali!
Edward baked some delicious looking banana muffins with a chocolate center. YUM! He also completed many of his home learning tasks including Geography and R.E.
Neave made this lovely face out of natural materials.
Charlie has also been creative with natural materials. He wrote a fantsic letter and researched Florence Nightingale. How fantastic is his illustration of her! He also made a model of the Salt Mill in Saltaire!
Aidan also researched Florence Nightingale and completed his reading activity.
Well done everyone for your home learning sent and on the online platforms too. It’s so lovely to see you all still engaged in your learning.
In school this week we have been looking at Superheroes. We started the week making our own superhero with powers. We then made a comic strip story including a villan! I was very impressed with the imagination and illustrations. As the week went on we looked at real life super heroes and wrote who are real life super hero was and why. Lastly we came up with ideas how we can be real life super heroes and wrote a pledge. We came up with some really good ideas including picking up litter, donating to charities and visit care homes.
On Tuesday it was virtual sports day. Obviously it wasnt the same having you all in school for this like we usually would. However we still had fun carrying out the different activities none the less!
Our EPIC update this week is 250 books in total! WOW that means between you all you have read 100 books since last week.
Our home learning heroes this week are Edward, Amari and Charlie. Well done boys!
Our TT Rockstars are Edward, Evie and Ata. Well done to you too!
Have a lovely weekend 2HL! Hopefully the sun makes and appearance and stays for us on Monday! Please bring waterproofs in case it is a wet day and a bag to bring your books home in.
We have reached the end of another week with only 2 more school weeks to go! Very hard to believe! I really enjoyed catching up with you all again this week on Google Meet and hearing all of the fantastic things you have to share.
On Monday 13th July our class can come into school for a transition time from 9:30-11:30am. This gives us the chance to see each other one last time and say goodbye to Year 2. You will also get to meet your new Year 3 teacher for the last hour. How exciting! I hope to see you all there!
Some of the home learning I have received this week include…
Edward has been spending time outdoors and found a little friend on his travels! Fantastic spotting! He has also wrote a lovely letter to Gabriel. Well done Edward!
Fatima has been working really hard to complete her home learning sheets.
Evie has been completing her history, geography and reading comprehension work. She’s also drew lovely portraits of herself and mummy.

WOW I was blown away when checking Epic today. Since launching at the start of the week, as a class we have earned our 150 badge!! That means between you all you have read 150 books!!! Check out the message I received below. I wonder how many books we will read next week?

Huge congratulations to our Home Learning Heroes this week – Leo, Noah and Lewan! Well done to you all 😊
Happy Friday Year 2! What a glorious sunny week we have had! I hope you have been out enjoying the good weather.
Aidan has definitely had a busy week of home learning. He has learnt all about the life cycle of a frog and even found his very own tadpoles which he has made a lovely habitat for. He has also been completing his reading comprehensions and made a face collage using natural materials. Great work Aidan!
Edward has also been enjoying the outdoors. He made a den in the woods and has planted some sunflower seeds in the garden. I love your den Edward, it would make a great hiding space!
Fatima has been using measuring skills to do some baking. She made some delicious buns for her family to enjoy. Well done Fatima!
Ata has been recapping his knowledge of oceans by making his very own Earth picture. Fantastic geography work Ata!
Amrit has done some beautiful writing this week to complete her home learning tasks. Great work as always Amrit. What a lovely letter you have wrote for Ava.
I was also super impressed with Amari’s handwriting in this piece of work this week. Huge improvement Amari, you should be so proud!
This week in school our topic has been ‘Toys’. We have compared Victorian toys to modern day toys as well as look at different toys and games around the world. We made our own cup and ball game and had lots of fun playing with them. Have a go at home, we wrote some instructions on how to make one. It is very easy and fun to do. We also made some marble runs on our tables. Again, a very fun game and easy to do!! Lastly we designed our own toys that we think will be available in the future.
This weeks home learning heros are Amari, Isabelle and Fatima. Well done to you all! This week you should have recieved a letter from your new Year 3 teacher. Please let me know if you did not receive this.
Have a lovely weekend. I look forward to seeing you all on Google Meet next week. Please check parent mail for times. Miss Lucas.
