Well Year 2 what a year it has been, one that I know I will never forget. 

I am so unbelievably proud of how you have carried on through lockdown with positive attitudes and smiles on your faces.  Thank you to all of you who have been sending me work each week it has been great to see your smiley faces and I have loved finding out what you have been up to with your fantastic families. 

You are all amazing learners and I know in Year 3 you will continue to show that 'wanting to learn' attitude that you have shown me in Year 2.    

The learning this week has been set by Mrs Pemberton and has some fun activities for you to complete and are based around her getting to know you. She will go through these tasks with you when you have your Zoom meeting on Wednesday.

Year 3 Transition work for Mrs Pemberton

I hope you have a great Summer break, stay safe and I will definitely see you all in September.

Take care

Hello Year 2,

I hope you have all had a good week, the weather hasn't been as kind to us has it this week but hopefully you will have been able to get some fresh air in between the showers.

You all now know your teacher next year when you are in Year 3 is Mrs Pemberton,  with Mrs Doona and Miss Clark.

Mrs Pemberton I have told her how lucky she is to have such an amazing class next year and she is very excited to get to know you all.

Monday 6th July, will be our last Year 2 Zoom session so it would be lovely to see as many of you on there as possible.  The week after you will get to speak to Mrs Pemberton and listen to the exciting plans she has for you in Year 3.

Something amazing has happened this week ...

Good morning Year 2,

How are you all?  I hope you have been enjoying this lovely weather.

Thank you to all of you that came to the Zoom meetings again on Monday, it's fantastic to see each other every week and catch up on what we have all been up to.

Thank you to all of you that have sent work into me again this week, I'm really pleased to hear you are still enjoying the Peter Pan theme.  It is the last week of Peter Pan next week with the theme being 'Neverland' so I hope you enjoy that too.

Our caterpillars have really grown this week, they are now spending lots of time on the roof of their pot so I'm hoping they might start to turn into chrysalis soon.  Ozzie has been keeping me updated on his caterpillars to, so here's a photo of them both.

Hi Year 2,

I hope you are all ok.  It was really lovely to see so many of your smiling faces on Zoom last Monday, I'm really looking forward to it again next week.

You have all been so busy this week, I have been sent some great Captain Hook and pirates work.  There has also been alot of you taking part in the art challenge this week too which has really made me smile so well done to all of you that have done that.

Next week's learning is based on the lost boys, mermaids and indians so I cannot wait to see what work you do for that.
