Happy Friday everyone!
It is the end of Summer Term 1! Can you believe it? I can’t. Even though we have been in lockdown, it has still gone pretty quickly. I am looking forward to receiving your presentations today of all the fabulous work you have been doing over the last 5 weeks! You should be so proud of yourselves!! J
Challenge: For today, I would like you to rewind your memories back to when we learnt how to make paper aeroplanes at school and tested how far they could fly. Can you design your own paper aeroplane? Think about how to make it streamline so that it can fly further!
Have a brilliant last day of term! Remember to send me your work! J
Good morning! How hot was it yesterday?!
It is nearly the weekend! It is meant to be lovely and warm! Remember to put on your sun cream and sun hats and drink lots of water!
Challenge: Seeing as most of you have been taking part in Joe Wick PE sessions each day, I thought it would be a good idea for you to make a fitness routine and put your family through their paces. It can include any exercises you like. Think of all the skills you have learnt in PE at school.
I hope you have a fabulous day!
Where are you all?? You have been very quiet this week, I hope you are all okay! Can you believe it is half term next week?! Today’s challenge involves movement!
Challenge: Follow the link and take part in some ‘Wakka Wakka’ Just Dance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCzgc_RelBA and ‘Happy’ Just Dance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G74_o_43_RQ
Hello everyone! :)
I had some lovely videos on Tapestry from Reception of their amazing obstacle courses, they looked like so much fun!! I haven't heard from many of you in Y2 lately! I hope that you are all ok.
Challenge: As you were so great at building towers, today I am challenging you to build a den that can fit at least two people in. Make it as wacky and exciting as you can!
I cannot wait to see what you create :)
Good morning Year 2!
Your work set for this week is below!
It’s the last week of term. Can you believe it?! I received some lovely videos from you on Friday which made me smile!
Today the challenge involves being outside - it is lovely and sunny here.
Challenge: Create an obstacle course in your garden – using anything that you think would make a good course. Make up your own rules and teach someone else in your household to complete your obstacle course!
Have fun! I can't wait to see the pictures!! :)
Happy Friday Class 1!
One week left of this term! It has gone so fast. I have been so impressed with your learning and have loved the pictures you have sent me via email. I’m glad you enjoyed the yoga again! I thought that today it would be nice for you to make a video message for your friends/family.
Challenge: Using a phone, Ipad/Tablet create a video message which can be shared with family/friends/teachers about your experience of lockdown/home learning/what you have been doing.
I hope you enjoy this challenge J
Good morning Class 1 :)
I hope you enjoyed making playdough. I love making homemade playdough, but it doesn’t always turn out like it should! Today’s challenge involves exercise! But don’t sweat it – it’s a great activity.
Challenge: As most of you enjoyed the Pokémon yoga, I thought why not do another one? This time it is a Trolls yoga. Follow the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9Q6FKF12Qs
Happy hump day! (It’s the middle of the school week)
WOW, WOW, WOW – how amazing were your towers and shadow drawings? Some of them were so tall and looked so strong!! You are so creative! Today’s challenge involves a little mess!
Challenge: Make your own soft dough for model making using the following method. Mix 8 tbsp plain flour with 2 tbsp table salt. Add 60ml warm water, food colouring and 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Mix everything together carefully and start modelling.
Have fun – what can you make with your home made playdough?
Dzień Dobry (good morning in Polish)
Week 4 of the Summer term already!! I forgot to mention yesterday - It was so lovely to see what some of you had created for VE day – such a special day to remember. Today’s challenge needs the sunshine, but can be done with a torch.
Challenge: Shadow Play - Place a toy on paper or card in a sunny spot. Draw around your toy’s shadow at different times of the day. Label the time on each drawing. Investigate and record what happens to the shape, position and size of the shadow over time. If the sun doesn’t come out, use a torch and put it at different angles to see if the shadow looks the same or is different.
Remember to send me your challenges! :)
Bom Dia! (good morning in Portuguese)
It's Monday again! Your work for this week is in a document below :) All about the Amazon Rainforest. The Whiterose math worksheets have been added below too.
This term is going so fast! I hope that you are all ok today. It really does make me smile when I receive your emails and pictures. There are still so many of you I haven’t heard from though! Take a look at what your friends have been doing on each of the class page pictures for Class 1. Today’s challenge is all about construction and building!
Challenge: Toppling Towers - Make free-standing towers using a range of materials including boxes, construction kits or recycled items. What is the tallest tower you can make? Which tower is the sturdiest?
I am looking forward to seeing your towers! Make sure you measure them in any way that you can J

It has been lovely weather the last few days! I hope it stays sunny and warm. Are you looking forward to today’s challenge? I am!
Challenge: Bird Bathers - Make a bird bath using a shallow container and stones or gravel. Investigate and observe the birds that visit your bath. What do they do? Can you name and draw your favourite birds? The RSPB has a useful website to help you with identification. https://www.rspb.org.uk/
I am looking forward to seeing all your different bird baths.
Bonjour! (Hello in French)
How great was the challenge yesterday? Which Pokémon was your favourite? Mine was Charmander! Today’s challenge needs to use things from inside your house.

Hi Year 2!
I hope that you are enjoying the work this week so far! I have really enjoyed seeing all your learning to our new Brazil topic! Keep the pictures and videos coming :)
It's been very wet and rainy here last night. So I cannot paint anymore of the fence! I wonder when you go on your daily walk, could you do a nature hunt and then make a collage at home? Make sure you wear your wellies and water proofs though!
Good evening... I have a special message for you from Mrs Allan....
Hi everyone - I hope you are able to login to and use charanga! If you have any issues send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
And I can help you get started! For those of you that have been on already, well done I can see the time you have spent completing your tasks.
I have recently added a folder which contains some singing assembly songs. After you have logged in, go to assignments and you should see the singing assembly songs. Most of them you will know however there are 2 that you don't know so have a go at learning them and we can look at them when we return to school. 😊 stay safe,
