Welcome to Year 2!

13.07.20 (Week 14)

Our final week of Class Two has arrived already! Even though we haven't managed to spend the whole year in the classroom together I can honestly say I have enjoyed every second of being your teacher. I am so proud of every single one of you and I want to take this time to say a huge thank you to you and your families for your support during this difficult time. You are all awesome!

A massive thank you as well goes to everyone who has sent an email or two to the class email address. I love reading your letters, notes, work and seeing pictures of what you have been up to. It has been lovely seeing what you have been up to and great to see you have been enjoying our topic weeks. The email address is below if you need it.

This weeks focus is 'Space'. A wonderful topic and lots of activities to enjoy. A great topic to end the year and lots of opportunities for you to be creative, especially when designing a rocket! Lots of books, songs and videos and a challenge for everyone to know the names of the planets in our solar system. Make sure you continue to stay safe and supply everyone around you with those amazing smiles!

We are also continuing on with our geography topic for the term:

Why does it matter where my food comes from? 

Nearly three-quarters of the land area of the United Kingdom is classified as farmland and this enquiry aims to provide an introduction to farming and farms for younger geographers. This is built upon and extended in enquiries at Key Stage 2. The central paradigm of geography is the investigation of how people interact and are interdependent with the environments that surround them (be they rural or urban). Investigating farming is an important way of illustrating this with younger pupils.

Our final session in our geography topic is 'Linking our Food with Space'.

Please also look at the RE planning document all about the Universal Church.

The Archdiocese have sent some links to the following new resources which include:

  • Reflections to sustain and encourage in uncertain times – hope.

All can be accessed/downloaded at or through by clicking on ‘Prayer and Other Resources’.

Remember to continue to complete My Maths every day plus one other maths activitiy as well as a spelling, reading and writing activity each day. There are also activities on Abacus Maths that you can complete each week. It is very important to keep up with practising these skills ready for when we return to school.

New on Abacus is the Bug Club. Have a look when you sign on as there are new fun books for you to read. In each book there are a number of quizzes that you can complete. Enjoy!

If you already do IDL, there are now some maths activities on there which you can access using the same login. Have fun with those!

 If you're looking for more to do, remember to check out these daily lessons on BBC bitesize. They're great! Just click on this link BBC Daily Lessons.

Finally, if you wish to send any of your brilliant work to me so I can have a look, please use the Class Two email address:

We are missing you all and really miss listening to what you have been up to.

Stay safe and keep smiling! 


Many thanks

Mr. Whiffing and Miss Donato
