Have a look around your new classroom. See you all Monday 🙂.
Year 2 2019-2020

Well Year 2...

 

... we've made it to the final week of the school year.  We hope you and your families continue to be well.  We have been so proud how you have embraced all your home learning as well as finding time do all sorts of other wonderful things.  We have loved seeing all your photos, chatting on the phone and reading your emails. 

 

It lovely to see some of you back in school last week.  Mrs Vickery and Mrs Dalby were very tired after those days!!! 

 

Your home learning continues for the final week (13.07.20) ✏️🗒📏.  If you scroll down you will find all the documents 📑, links 🔗, games 🕹and activities ✂️ you will need.  We have organised the webpage with more headings so these should be easy to find and access.  The documents etc for the next two weeks will be at the top of each subject section. Remember there are also some great mindfulness 🧘‍♀️ 🧘‍♂️ exercises you could try too.

 

Mrs Lancaster has very kindly made you a video showing you what Year 3 is like in preparation for September.     

 

 ⛔️🖐 Please remember to always make sure an adult knows which websites you are accessing and if you see something that makes you uncomfortable, minimise the screen and tell your grown up straight away. 🤚⛔️

 

Take care, keep safe, keep washing your hands and remember to social distance!

Love from Mrs Vickery and Mrs Hawkins

Agatha & Albert made Mrs Vickery go in this opitcal illusion tunnel. The floor stayed still but the walls went round & round & round! You can decide if Mrs Vickery enjoyed the experience! 🤪

A description direct from Charlotte: “So this is the shuttle Endeavour leaving Florida (Kennedy space Center) August 2007. It was going to the international space station. We couldn’t be any closer to the launch as basically the noise, gases, temperature etc would kill you!”
