Happy Half Term

Well done for all of your hard work this term 2ZY. I can’t believe this is the final half term of the year!

We’ve come a long way since September and despite everything that has happened I think you are all ready for Year 3. It’s been great to be back in class with you all and I’ve been amazed with your handwriting.

Don’t forget to practice your handwriting for our competition and keep smiling!

Here are some pictures from our congratulations assembly and handwriting competition first attempts:

Today was extra special for our school because some of our Y2 children became published young authors, thanks to the Young Writers competition we entered earlier this year. Here is the book with the published writing in our school library.

This week, as part of our English we wrote a script and presented the news explaining the importance of recycling to protect our beaches.

To celebrate Eid, which took place last week, we looked at different henna patterns and coloured some patterns of our own.

Would you like to create your own?

Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to share how you keep active with us on:


Did you spot me? 😉

We are bananas in pyjamas!

Happy Eid to everyone who celebrated yesterday!

Today was Pyjamarama day at school. Everyone looked very cosy in school today, including Mrs Downs! What a fun day it was! We helped BookTrust reach children with the magic of bedtime stories – all in the comfort of our favourite PJs.

Here are some pictures of what 2ZY have been doing this week.

In Maths we have been learning about volume and capacity, in English we are thinking about how we can help the environment in our new English text and in topic we have been busy learning how to sketch using different lines.

Would you like to practice sketching using different lines at home?

Have a lovely weekend and keep smiling!

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend

This week we have been busy planting our own seeds in Science, learning about 3D shapes in Maths, past tense and exclamation marks in English and exploring Bournemouth on Google Earth in Geography. What a busy but exciting week we’ve had!

Here is the 3D shapes song for you to enjoy, how many of these 3D shapes spot around your house?

How many human and physical features can your Eagle Eyes spot in the video of Bournemouth below?

Thank you for being such an amazing class, have a great long weekend and I can’t wait to see you all on Tuesday!

It’s all about the shapes…

What an amazing first week back we’ve had 2ZY!

We’ve been busy immersing ourselves into our new English text, The Snail and the Whale, started our Seaside Explorers topic and been learning about 2D shapes.

It’s been great to see you using our learning to learn behaviours lately 2ZY, I’ve spotted lots of super listening bats and really focused eagles, especially in PE!

I hope to see more next week!

Can you spot the 2D shapes we have been creating?

We used the Geoboard app on the iPads to practice drawing 2D shapes after learning about their properties.

Happy Easter Holidays

Well done for all of your hard work this term 2ZY, I’m proud of every single one of you!

You’ve made me smile every day and kept me entertained with your humour.

You also made me nearly cry during our circle time session on kindness yesterday with your kind comments!

You truly are an amazing class and I’m lucky to be your teacher.

Make sure you remember to be a super ‘listening bat’ during the holidays and have a wonderful break.

Here are your amazing kindness postcards which you created as part of our English recovery curriculum, I will be showing them to Oliver Jeffers via Twitter!


We are explorers…

This week we have been busy exploring different materials in our environment in Science and then looking at ways we can look after it in PSHE.

We also enjoyed our music lessons using the glockenspiels and wrote our own fact files about the Earth for English.

We had a virtual congratulations assembly with Miss Whitcombe on Friday too. What a fantastic week we’ve had!

Would you like to find out more about waterproof materials?


Year 2 entered a young writers short story competition a few months ago and I’m proud to announce 3 children were selected from 2ZY! I can’t believe we have some authors already, keep up the brilliant writing.

We have been busy planning our setting descriptions this week and will be writing them on Friday based on our book ‘Here we are’.

Keep a lookout for some on the next blog post!

Welcome back!

What an amazing week this has been! It has been so wonderful to have you all back this week, especially seeing your heartwarming smiles.

This week we’ve been busy taking part in lots of circle time sessions, recapping our place value in Maths, starting our new text in English and even doing our own Kandinsky paintings!

Have a look below:

This is our new text:

Here is a video to help you recap your place value:

Have a lovely weekend, I can’t wait to see you all on Monday!
