Friday 24th April 2020

Good Morning Year 2, 

Thank you so much for all the emails you have been sending in. It is lovely to hear from you and to see your smiling faces. It is clear that you have all been working very hard with your families and are learning lots. We will have so much to share when we finally get to see each other again! 

If you haven't posted on the blog or emailed yet, please do get in touch as I would love to hear from you all. 

 

Today I have added some Come and See work for you to complete and it is Feel Good Friday so get creative this afternoon and enjoy yourselves. 

 

Missing you all, 

Miss Wagner 

 

 

Come and See

Good Morning Year 2,

Happy St George’s Day! 
Like St Patrick and St David, St George is a patron saint and he is celebrated in England. Today I would like you to think about all saints and why we have them. What makes them special? 
 

I would also love to see more work from you so if you haven’t already sent a piece of writing into the school office you will find the email on the contact us page. 
 

Remember to log in to TTrockstars, Bug Club and Education City. I have been checking and some children are reading books on Bug Club but not answering the questions so your books are not complete. Remember to check carefully and then I can give you more books to read. 
 

Have a great day and remember to clap for our key-workers today..maybe some of them will be saints one day.
Missing you all,

Miss Wagner

Good Morning Year 2, 

 

I would like to say a big thank you and well done to all of the children posting regularly on our twitter, blog and also to those of you who have sent in emails to school. It’s so nice to see what you have been getting up to and I hope to hear from more of you as the week goes on. If you are experiencing problems or haven’t posted anything yet, please send me an email and I can address any questions you may have. 
 

Keep going with the work I put up on Monday and remember to check out the foundation lessons on the OAK academy. 
 

Missing you all lots! Have a great day 😊

Miss Wagner 

Tuesday 21st April 

Good morning year 2, 

Yesterday a new academy was launched for all of the children in the U.K. called the OAK academy. I spent yesterday having a look at some of the lessons and they look like they will be lots of fun and very interesting. Have a go at the foundation subjects this week by clicking onto the link below! 
 

Today is also our Queen’s  94th birthday. Get creative and have a go at making some party bunting, a birthday card or have afternoon tea. The Queen usually likes to celebrate with her family but she also has lots of garden parties in the summer so please enjoy some of the sunshine this afternoon. 
 

Finally, this week I would like you all to choose your favourite piece of work. It could be some writing, a book you have read or a foundation activity from the OAK academy. When you’ve chosen your favourite, ask your family to photograph it or take a picture of you holding onto it and email it into school with the subject 

FAO Miss Wagner 
It’s very strange not having any of your work to look at and I know how hard you are all working so I would love to see the work you are proud of. 
 

Have a great day, 

Miss Wagner

Good Morning Year 2, 

 

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter with your families and maybe just a little bit of chocolate. 

Today would have been our first day of our Summer term and it is so nice that we have beautiful weather to enjoy while we are home learning. 

 

Below is a list of activities for you to start working on this week. As the week goes on I will add some more activities so remember to check this page every day. I look forward to seeing all your hard work, smiley faces and hearing from you on our blog or twitter pages so please share and post as much as you can!

 

Take care Year 2, I hope you are all well and have lots of fun this week! 

Missing you all,

Miss Wagner
