 Morning Herons and Hummingbirds!


Friday 3rd July

Happy Friday Year 2. I hope you have had lots of fun with your learning this week. One more day until the weekend when you can have a well deserved break!

Below is a video to get you up and moving. It's another Cosmic Yoga story. Enjoy!


Have fun!

Miss Green :)


Thursday 2nd July

Good morning Year 2. Below is a video all about Humpback whales. This is the same type of whale that is in our story. Have fun finding out some new facts about these animals.

Wednesday 1st July

Can you believe it Year 2? It's July already! Almost time to start thinking about the Summer. The snail in the story was able to go all around the world on the back of a whale. Hopefully you have drawn your whales already this week. If you haven't (or if you would like another go) here is a video that shows you how to draw a cartoon whale.

Maybe you could add some more sea creatures to go with him!

Have a lovely day :)

Hello Year 2- hope you have been enjoying the new story.

Some days it can be hard to stay happy and smile- especially when we are missing our friends and families. 

Below is an idea to keep your spirits up! It is a happiness jar. Today Miss Green is happy because she got to have chocolate pancakes for breakfast.

Hello Year 2! Another week of fun and learning is nearly over. We hope you had fun! Miss Green had a water fight yesterday with the nursery children and got absolutely soaked! What did you get up to in the sunshine?

Miss Green also started reading a new book. It's about a princess who goes to live with a dragon. They go on an adventure together.

Have you read any good books lately? Why not send a picture of you reading your favourite book?

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Green and Mrs Fry


Thursday 25th June

Phew! Hasn't it been hot! Have fun in the sunshine but make sure to drink plenty of water and get lots of shade. Don't forget your sun-cream. Below is a fun and easy activity you can do in your own garden. All you need is a bottle, a sock and some bubble mixture!

How long will your bubble snake be? We would love to see some pictures!

Miss Green and Mrs Fry
