Year 2

Picture 1


Hello Year 2,


We hope you enjoyed your learning about ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. All of your postcards and letters from other objects were fantastic and really imaginative. We also LOVED the challenge drawings using all of your colours - they were amazing!


This week we are going to be looking at a book called Not Now Bernard by David McKee. Miss Brown will be reading it in Monday's live lesson as well as explaining the DT task. Please look at the timetable below to see when the live lessons are for this week.


  For DT, you will need some junk/recycled materials so keep anything that you might think will be useful for making a monster!


Value of the month for July is mindfulness. Your topic lessons for this week will focus on this.


We only have two more weeks to go!

Mr T’s Challenge

Hello Year 2, I miss you lots but I have loved seeing all of your fantastic work.

I have a challenge for you this week! I would like to see your best active photos. Here is my attempt. 




Be as creative as possible. You could even use props or fancy dress. We would love to see your photos so please upload them to the Year 2 ‘Chit Chat’ blog.


I have been really impressed with all of your action shots so far! It looks like you all had great fun making them. I have uploaded them to my 'Well-being and fun' star for other year groups to admire.

In this video, Miss Flanagan is dancing to a song called Reach by S Club 7. It was made 20 years ago but the words are still important today. Dance along with Miss Flanagan and sing the words if you know them. You could even make up your own dance routine and send it into school so we can see it.

Mrs Bignell's message 1

Hi everybody,

I miss you and hope you are all staying safe.

I go out for a walk every day and noticed there are lots of daisies growing everywhere, so I decided to pick some and take them home and see what I could make with them. I have made a bouquet of daisies, a bracelet, a necklace, a flower crown and some shapes. What could you make with daisies? Please be careful when picking daises and always go out with an adult and make sure you wash your hands.

To Year 2 and the wider Middleton community,
I hope that this video of me singing The Climb by Miley Cyrus cheers you up just as it did for me while I was making it.
Miss you all,
Miss Flanagan
