We've come to the end of another school year! I think we can all agree it has been a very strange year, but one that we will all definitely remember that's for sure!


All of the teacher's in Year 2 would just like to say how proud we are of you for all of your achievements in school and at home whilst you have been distance learning, you have worked soooooo hard! 

We would also like to say a huge THANKYOU to all of your families for becoming your teacher's at home, they have done such an amazing job!!


We have put together a short film below of all of our wonderful memories of Year 2 for you to watch and enjoy laugh I think most of you will recognise the song playing in the background so make sure you have a good old boogie -'Lansdowne Style!!wink'

Hi everyone! laugh


We hope you've all had a lovely Easter break and have enjoyed some quality time with your families in the gorgeous weather we've been havingyes.

We hope you are all keeping safe and well and feel recharged and refreshed ready for the start of our summer term. Our topic this half term is called 'Electric Rainbow' - a science rich topic where we will explore all about light, sound and electricity!



Have fun exploring this topic and completing the lessons we have put onto the Year 2 page for you. Remember to complete as many of the tasks as you can but fit them into your own routine as we are aware that it is not always possible to follow the normal routines that we follow in school. So just complete your activities as and when you can. We would also love to see the work you have been doing at home so please remember to send us an email too. Our email addresses are on the main Year 2 page.


Take care everyone and remember to have lots of FUN!wink

Hi everyone!Its Mrs Palios-Bancroft here!


Hope you are all keeping safe and well. Its been really lovely seeing all of the fantastic work you've been sending us. You are doing a great job!yeswink02/04/20





Hi everybodysmiley


We hope you are all keeping safe and well at home with your families and more importantly spending lots of quality time together. We are missing you terribly but are really enjoying hearing about all of the exciting things you've been up to at home, whether that be the work that has been set up by your teachers through the website or home activities that you have been doing with your families. It has been wonderful to seeyes


Although we are so pleased with all of the learning that is going on at home please remember to be kind to yourselves. We talk a lot in school about being ready to learn, so if your child is struggling find out why? It is perfectly fine to stagger your child's learning if you need to so please don't put pressure on yourselves. We will continue to provide you with enough work to keep yourselves busy but please, take your timesmiley As long as your children are happy and calm they will adapt to the new routines set by you at home. As always, your teacher's are always at the end of an email if you have any questions, queries or just fancy a chat! We will get back to you as soon as we can.


As promised here's Mrs Palios-Hoult and Mrs Owen giving you all a big wave and enjoying a bit of time in the garden. Mrs Palios-Hoult's dog Tula also fancied saying hello to you all! 



Look after each other and stay safe everybody!


Best wishes,

The Year 2 team x



Daily Physical Activity

It is really important that our children stay active during this period of time that they will be learning from home. Here is a great resource that you can use at home with your children. Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is providing children across the UK with a daily P.E. session at 9am everyday! It would be great for your child to get involved and kick start their day with a bit of physical activity.


Click on the link to find out more and sign up to this fantastic FREE resource


Remember, if you complete any work digitally, please email it directly to your teacher who will endeavour to give you feedback ASAP!

Here are our emails: (Mrs Palios-Hoult) (Mrs Palios-Bancroft) (Mrs Powell)
