Castle building!

Hello Year 2

Tomorrow we are going to build a model castle!  Please collect some recyclable materials, such as a cereal box, kitchen roll tubes etc.  If you are in school tomorrow, you will need to bring your recyclable materials with you in a bag.

I hope that you are all enjoying spending more time with your family.  We are really missing having you all in class together.

Best wishes,

Miss Harrison and Mrs Mcfarlane

Birthday Celebrations

This Friday (27th November) we will be having our first birthday celebration, this is for all of the children who have had a birthday during September, October and November. These children can come to school in their own clothes and the rest of the children will either come in their normal school uniform or PE kit if it is there usual PE day.

The children do not need to bring anything in for our celebration, school will provide a cupcake and candle for each birthday child and we have planned some games to play in our bubbles where the children will have the chance to win some sweets.

We have some banners to put up in all of our classrooms and we will play some party music to try and create a fun and exciting birthday atmosphere. We hope the children enjoy celebrating with their friends!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me (

Thank you

Mrs Hargrave



Dear Parents,

If possible, please can your child bring a pair of wellies (or old shoes) into school tomorrow, as we are exploring habitats during our science lesson.

Many thanks,
Miss Harrison

Flu Immunisation

The flu immunisation for the children in Reception to Year 6 will take place on Monday 23rd November 20.

Maths week Rock out 2020

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2020 and it’s all done online via

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.

Thanks for your support and Rock out!

Mr Harvey


Year 2 PE

Dear parents,

Due to a change in timetabling, our class will now have PE on a WEDNESDAY only.  Children will need to come to school in their PE kits every Wednesday from this week.

From Miss Harrison,

Year 2 Home Learning

Happy Friday Year 2!

A huge thank you and well done to everyone who has been working so hard on their home learning tasks on Seesaw.  I have been so impressed by the quality of learning that has taken place at home since Wednesday.  As we might have to isolate again in the coming months, it is really pleasing to see how quickly and easily you have used Seesaw to continue your learning and prevent any lost learning time.  You all need to say a big ‘thank you’ to your grown ups for helping you Year 2.  ⭐️

I have set you some tasks for today and I am really looking forward to seeing the work you produce from these activities.  Keep working hard Year 2!

Have a relaxing weekend at home everyone.

Best wishes from Miss Harrison and Mrs Macfarlane.

Home Learning 14.10.20

Good morning Year 2!

We hope that you are all well.

I have uploaded all of your work and lessons for today on to the Seesaw App.  You need to complete the following:

1) Watch the Maths lesson video and complete the tasks attached on a separate activity.

2) Watch the Oak National Academy English lesson video.  This video has activities for you to complete within the teaching video.

3) If you are in my Read Write Inc phonics group, there is a video for you to watch to consolidate your learning of the ‘are’ sound.  If you are not in my RWI group, please can you practise your spellings in one of the ways outlined on the KS1 Spelling challenge sheet on Seesaw.

4) A reading lesson.  I have set a book for you to read on Oxford Owl, with a comprehension activity linked to the book you will read.

5) An Art lesson based on creating a seaside collage.

Most of these activities can be completed in your homework book, which was sent home a couple of weeks ago.  If you can attach a photograph of your completed work, that would be fantastic.

If you have any problems with any of the activities, please email me

Have a lovely day!  From Miss Harrison and Mrs Macfarlane.

One of our PE slots has changed.  Your child will now have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday, so children need to come to school in their PE kits tomorrow.
