Welcome to Year 2 September 2020

Well it's great to be back to school after such a strange year last year. Many of us caught colds as soon as we got back, but at least it's nothing worse so we are still smiling.

We've already made a start at our new topic 'Marvellous Me'. We went out in the playground to play Who am Eye? Don't worry, it's not a spelling mistake, it's a game where we have to see whose eyes are in some photographs. You need to be very observant scientists to get them all right. It turned out that you children were much better at it than Mrs Trott and Mrs Wilkinson. Perhaps our eyes are getting tired, or perhaps we don't know you as well as you know each other.

Anyway, use your sharp eyes again to have a look at the pictures of the game. Can you see yourself?

Hello year 2 (soon to be year 3) It is Mrs La Frenais here. It was great to meet some of you last week in the playground. Here is a short video introducing you to year 3. I hope that you have a good summer and I will see you in September. Mrs La Frenais.

Week beginning Monday 20th July

Happy Holidays everyone. It's lovely to see the sun and blue sky today and I hope that you are all enjoying it.

I promised to put any of your 'Magic' stories on the website if you sent me and I am pleased to say that both Yritha and Claudia have sent me theirs. I typed them up so that they are easier to see on here and I have put them below. 

I have also attached some more of the maths mysteries so that you can have a go at them any time in the holidays if you are looking for something extra to do.

Finally I have taken off the Vimeo videos as the screencast links started working again and the videos take up rather a lot of space!

The Magic Nose

In a house far away lived a nice, calm dog that had gold food and a magic nose. Dog would only use it on people who steal food. But some robbers came in the house and stole food. The dog put the magic nose on them.

One day later the robbers were small and the food was giant. The robbers ran as quick as their tiny legs could run. But in a flashing light the food was right behind them. It was a dead end and the food was about to eat them. Then one of the robbers said stop. The other robber said we will never steal food again. Then in a puff of white smoke they changed and they never stole food again.

The Magic Phone

Once there was an island called Easter Island and a boy called Archie and he lived here. Archie had blue hair, he was cheeky and he dyed his hair so many times. He had a toothy smile and he was a very happy boy. He loved all animals except scratching animals!

Archie had a magic phone, it could do all sorts of wonderful things, but only for Archie. The first thing it could do was make things vanish which was very handy if people were being mean. It could also make things as big as an elephant and as small as a pea, which was useful because he could make cakes bigger!

One day Archie was walking across a busy road when he saw two boys kicking a dog. This made him furious so quickly he took out his phone and shrank them so now they were the size of a rubber.

The two boys, Ben and Jamie, were really scared and ran away. All of a sudden, they found themselves in a busy city. They felt it was hopeless. The people were huge, they seemed as big as giants. How are they going to escape? The ran across the countryside and stumbled across a mouse in a mouse trap. The quickly helped the mouse out and, as Archie had been following them, he saw the whole things. He saw them and turned them back to their normal size. The boys had learned their lesson and were never cruel to animals.

Week beginning Monday 13th July

Well it was so lovely to see you all this morning. You all looked really well and I'm sure most of you are quite a lot taller than I remember you! 

Latest news. I am now putting the screencast lessons on here using vimeo. For some reason every lesson appears 3 times. I don't know how to stop this. You only need watch one of them.

The password for all of them is   ladbrooke2          (It is all in lowercase with no space before the 2)

It seems that there is a problem with the screencast lessons...I have put too many on this month. I didn't know there was a limit, they must have buried that in what they call the 'small print'. I will have to try to switch to the premier version and hopefully this will make these lessons available again. I will do that when I get home this evening as screencast doesn't work at all from school.

Don't forget to look out for the video from Mrs La Frenais. That won't be affected by the problems with mine. 

This week is the last week of term and I am really looking forward to seeing many of you on the school field on Tuesday so that we can say goodbye for now and I can give you all your work from the year. If you have things that you would like to show me that you have done, you can bring that with you, but I will have to take it away and look at it later as there won't be time on the field. Otherwise you can bring it to show me or your new teacher Mrs La Frenais next year.Ofcourse if you do some work this week and want to send me a photo of it, that is great too.

Our maths this week is all about time.  Spellings are some more red words and English is to write a story. There will be lessons to help you do this.
