Happy New Year 2 and parents and welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a well-rested break. I have missed you all very much. It is such a shame that you are not in school at the moment but keeping safe is what is most important. Even though you are not back in school, I hope you are all ready for some home learning. You are all amazing and I can’t wait to see all the fantastic pieces of work that you will be producing at home.


Each day I will be doing a register, once in the morning and again in the afternoon. I am really looking forward to this as I will get to see all your smiley faces! I will also be available each day between 11:00 and 12:00 to respond to any questions or concerns you or your children may have. We can discuss any queries at the allocated time via e.mail or over a Zoom call.


Reading Bingo is back for the spring term. Have a go at some reading fun and earn house points at the same time. You can find the Reading Bingo sheet below. You will also find on the class page ‘topic grids’ with lots of different activities on. I will be using these to set some of your activities too.


Please ensure that all work is uploaded on to the class blog only each day. If work is set on Purple Mash or Mathletics then there is no need to put this on to the blog as I can view the work completed on the website. Your home learning activities will be uploaded on to the class page (below) each day along with any resources to support you. Mrs Machlarz and I are really looking forward to seeing all your hard work and we will be checking what you do daily. So try your best and if you need any help, please let us know. I will still continue to award you with Dojo points for your efforts. Parents please let me know if you are having difficulty completing the work set. This is a difficult time and if we can help in anyway, then we will. 

Remember to take plenty of brain breaks (check out the different ways of doing this on the class page below) and don’t forget to exercise.


Keep Smiling Year 2! smiley

Daily Message 25.1.21

Hello Year 2,


I hope you enjoyed your weekend. The snow definitely put a smile on my face. I was running around and playing in it with my son!


I was so impressed with the work you achieved last week. So many of you have really challenged yourself and have shown such creativity. You are doing amazingly and I am looking forward to seeing what you achieve this week. 


I will be working in school everyday this week so Mrs Machlarz will be doing the register and story time on Zoom. I know she is looking forward to seeing more of you. I will still be checking my e.mails if you have any questions and I will be checking your work too.


Have a brilliant day!

Happy New Year! In Music this term we will be using the online Music learning programme, Charanga, which you used last year.  If you don’t still have your login please ask your teacher for it or email me at

Log in to your Yumu account at

First, click on Assignment, then on Elements of Music 2Click on each of the videos on the right hand side to remind yourself about the elements of music that we looked at last term - pulse, rhythm, pitch, tempo and structure. Can you describe to someone at home what each of the words mean? You could also write each word down and draw a picture to go with it and post it on your blog.

Have fun!
