Good morning. Hope you are all well.

We got the terrible news that school needed to close completely as of today. I'm not sure when it will open but I'm sure Mrs Perry will keep us all informed.

I've been amazed at the work you've been sending to me. keep going you are doing an amazing job. I'm going to put a video of Erin's bug hotel on the website later as she already has some guests.

I will be chasing up anyone who has not sent in any work as this is not a two week holiday. Please contact me if you are having any issues and we can come up with an arrangement.

Stanley, my dog keeps looking at me and he doesn't understand why I can't take him out for a walk.

Missing you already,

Mrs W



Wednesday 23rd September

Good morning I hope you are all well. Thankyou to the children who completed yesterday's work and sent it to me it was great to see the effort that you'd put into the work. I've been sent some great bug hotels. I can't wait to see some more. I'll put them on the website then you can all see them. I hope that the rain clears up then you can get out in the garden to work on your creations.

Check out the history folder. There is a Neil Armstrong timeline to complete and a significant person fact file to complete. It's just like the one we completed on Christopher Columbus. Use the powerpoint to help you complete them.

I've put two maths activities on for today. The white Rose maths includes a powerpoint and you should be able to access it quite independently. Which will help if your parents are working from home.

Please complete at least one maths and one english activity a day and email them to me. There is an expectation that you are working and not just having fun. I'll look forward to seeing all your hard work.

See you soon,

Mrs W


Tuesday 22nd September


Well what a crazy day it has been. I hope you are all ok . It seems such a shame to split up our Year 2 bubble after the fantastic start you have all made. I am sorry about the delay in putting work on today but it took me nearly 2 hours to get home and then my computer decided it didn't like me. Anyway here I am. I've put an english and maths activity on to complete today. I will be constantly putting on different activities to complete daily. I suggest completing at least one english and one maths activity a day then one other subject.  Don't forget there is also mathletics.

Today, while the weather is so nice try to get out in your garden and build a bug hotel. I'll put some ideas in science home learning. Please send me pictures of your bug hotels when they are done.

There is an expectation that all children will complete the daily work so please will you email your child's work to me when completed. I will be available every dayon:


Remember we will not be allowed back on school premises until 5th October. Should you need to pick a sibling up please contact the school office and they will make arrangements with you. Also, remember that we are self isolating and should be staying at home.

Y2 Curriculum



Please see the curriculum overviews in the relevant term below for details of what we are doing in the curriculum. The weekly spelling words can also be found there. There are ten spellings each week. Ms

Smart will increase the spellings to fifteen  when we have settled in. Please help and support your child in learning these words throughout the year.  Spellings will be given on a Wednesday to be tested on the following Wednesday.



Spellings will be part of the homework .

Other homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in on a Monday. This is likely to be maths or english but may also be other areas of the curriculum history research or even art 



Once established in Hawthorn class your child will receive a home reader. Please encourage your child to read to an adult for 5 minutes each day.  They will be given at least one reading day in school but we encourage each child to change their book when it has been completed. Please ensure their reading record is signed then we can facilitate this.



PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday . Please send in a PE kit which we will keep in school and send home each holiday. Please make sure all items are named.
