Year 2

National Insect Week


How many minibeasts have you seen outside recently? The warm weather has encouraged lots of these little critters to emerge. This week you are challenged to get outside and take a photo of the insects around you - remember that an insect has 6 legs and three body sections (head, thorax and abdomen), so slugs and spiders aren't included! For more information, you can visit Send your photos to me at the e-mail addresses below!

How to use the Home Learning section


Within each week, children are expected to choose one maths, one English and one 'other subject' activity each day (15 activities a week). In addition to this, children should continue to read for 20 minutes each day and practise their times tables on Times Table Rockstars daily.


On YouTube, you can search for the channel 'Miss Hendry' and there are videos of me reading stories to the class. I am trying to do a daily reading, when possible. 


If you need any help or have any questions, I am always available on e-mail.  

My favourite news from the past week...


Jaiden built an amazing underwater habitat in a jar!



Our lessons on the Titanic have proved very popular with the class and they created some stunning artwork. Here are Jasmine's and Sophie's.



Please keep sending in your photos - it could be yours I select next week for this page!
