Year 2

Year 2 Easter holiday activities week 1

Hi year 2.

We hope you are all staying safe and enjoying some family time at home. It is a big change not teaching you every day but I know you’ll be doing well and helping out your families.  Remember we are all a little out of our normal routine so we can’t do some of the things we’d normally like.  I’ve been keeping in touch with friends and family through video chat and telephone calls.  It just means we can’t see each other for a little while.  If you want to stay in touch and let us know what lovely learning you’ve been doing, remember you can do this through the email address.

In my house, Bam is loving having us around for extra cuddles and I’ve been training him to follow some new commands. His hair is all curly and long because the salon cancelled his puppy cut!  He’s even been trying to get his paws on my laptop to send you some work!

I’ve listed some activity ideas for over the holidays but remember you don’t have to do these, they are optional.  You might want to do other things that you are more interested in over the break or just have a rest.  Maybe start your own learning or writing about something that you’ve been wanting to do for a while and haven’t had the time?  Remember to get daily fresh air and exercise too!

Mrs Hudson and I are thinking of you and wishing you a lovely Easter holiday with your families.   Stay safe.

Year 2 home learning week beginning 30th March 2020

Hi year 2!

We hope you and your families are well. Please find attached some ideas to help on your home learning adventure. We have been thinking of you and wondering what you’ve been busy with at home. Maybe you’ve been doing some handwriting, reading an interesting book or maybe you’ve just been busy growing a little taller! It is very different without you in school but staying at home right now is important to keep you safe. Remember to help stop the the virus spreading by continuing to wash your hands! Stay safe everyone!

With love from

Mrs Timlin and Mrs Hudson xxx

The rocky shore

Year 2 had great fun at Cullercoats beginning our Science based topic of Beachcombers! We were searching in rock pools and discovering all kinds of sea creatures! 

Take a look at our amazing art.

 A superb exhibition of art work based on the topics the children have studied this year. Thank you to all who helped put the exhibition together and to the families and friends who supported us today?

Author Antony Wootten visits St James

Children enjoyed their time with Antony today. Hopefully he has inspired some budding writers.

The year 2 pirate crew had an arghsome time on their pirate day! Captain Raggy Beard came and told them about his adventures on the high seas! They practiced their pirate argh! They tested their stealth skills, sang pirate songs and even made their teachers walk the plank! 

Hula Hoop Performance

Wow! What a performance KS1 and KS2 gave us. They were absolutely fantastic and the routine they have been learning with Jen was not the easiest!  Well done to all those that took part in the Hula Hoop classes on Monday and Friday after school.  We were all very impressed!
