Good Morning Otters, I will be setting and marking Learning from Home activities over the next few weeks, whilst Miss Brook looks after and works with my Hedgehogs. I am looking forward to seeing what you do.
Welcome back to the Otters class. All our Otters have been super smart and impressing the grown ups with their learning and behaviour, keep it up!
Year 2 is an exciting and challenging year! In Year 2 we are always reaching for the stars and we love learning. As the oldest children in our school, we act as role models for younger children and set a good example both in work and in play.
Come and have a look at all the different things we have been doing...
Have you seen the Kids’ Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites!
Do you want to have a go at an experiment at home?
Cliffe House have sent me this exciting way to show how Trees Drink.
The experiment helps you understand the way in which trees and plants get water from the ground.
You will need some equipment to help you. Click the link below to find out what to do!
I hope everyone is ok and managing to keep smiling at home!
In school we do our writing through 'Talk for Writing' which allows us to explore a variety of different stories. We can imitate, innovate and invent our own stories easily. Here are some super home learning resources they have released.
Inside the booklet it tells your grown ups what to do!
I wonder if you could have a go at some amazing talk for writing tasks?
Don't forget you can email your work in to firstname.lastname@example.org as I would love to share what you have been up to!

Welcome back everyone. This is a very strange start to the summer term. Our new topic for the Summer term is 'Huddersfield Jigsaw'. This half term the children will learn about Christianity, Islam, and Sikhism. They will consider the way of life for all our communities and beliefs, they will make comparisons with other faiths identifying the similarities and differences between them. They will develop and understanding that the Huddersfield community is made up of many different communities and religions. This topic will link heavily with the British values of tolerance of those with different faiths, beliefs and cultures.
Our new talk for writing story is 'Noah's Ark'.
Here are some links to the story:
A super story to help your children to understand Coronavirus.
Hope to see you all soon!
