This is a wonderful picture of all thechildren in 2F, drawn by Yusuf. It has the brilliant message- ‘ We are all different, but we all share a smile.’ We have shared so many smiles this year. It has been such a wonderful year and the children have all worked so hard and made such excellent progress. I am so proud of them all.
Thank you for all the kind messages and gifts which the children have given me over the last week. Thank you too for all the support you have given your children and the school over the year… It really does make a huge difference. 🙂
All the Learning Support Staff have asked that I send a special, big ‘Thank you’ from them too for all the kind gifts and cards that they recieved.
The children are bringing home a transition leaflet and also a ‘Summer Challenge’ booklet. When your child completes a task they cut out the hexagon badge and stick it in the booklet. After the summer, bring in your booklets to share with your new teachers. The booklet has been put together as a fun project for the children, please do not worry if your family are busy or your child does not wish to do the challenge. It is completely optional.
Sorry for the brief nature of this post- written on my phone from the ferry terminal at Portsmouth! Pictures & details will be added later…. in the meantime have a wonderful holiday & thank you again. Mrs Fisher
– Back home and time to add the pictures from the last few days.
Everyone bought in fantastic games they had made as their last Learning Log task. We played the games together and shared our ideas.
On the final afternoon, we shared the story ‘Going Places,’ by Peter and Paul Reynolds. Below is a video based on the book.
I gave all the children identical LEGO kits, but with no instructions. Some of the children chose to work alone, others worked with friends. Everyone persevered, they created and tweaked, and kept going until they had made a model that they felt really proud of. It was a brilliant end to a wonderful year.
We had lots to celebrate during our final Special Mention. Our Mathletics celebrations included an award for Mathlete of the Year, Mathlete of the week and another 2nd Gold award! Our final Special Mentions were awarded to 4 children who has been the best they could be, putting in effort and determination into all their learning. A huge WELL DONE, is deserved by all the children, it’s been a wonderful year and I know they will all continue to shine in yr 3.

Most Friday afternoons, 2F enjoy a Circle Time together. We take time to reflect on the weeks learning, listen to each others news and show each other things we are proud of. Over the year, a favourite part of the Circle Time has been watching the boys perform their street dances. This week the class have asked that these final street dance performances are shared with everyone on our blog…..

What a wonderful time we all had on Wednesday afternoon, when Year 3 invited all the children in Year 2 and their families to join them for a special picnic. Thank you to the children in Year 3 who all were wonderful hosts and who had cooked such delicious cakes and potatoe snacks. Many thanks, also to all the Year 3 families who brought in delicious food to share. It was a wonderful opportunity for us all to get together and celebrate the end of another wonderful year. Finally a huge thanks goes to Mrs Daniels and Mrs Charlesworth for organising such an enjoyable event.

A huge well done to all the children for competing today. There was great energy and enjoyment coming from everyone. Also a big thank you to all the spectators – it really does make the day very special for the children!
The videos below sum up the day perfectly…
I would also like to give my congratulations to Ireland who were the overall winners!
Until next year…

This morning the children had a brilliant time at Sports Day. Everyone was so enthusiastic and did their very best. All the children and teams enjoyed the events and cheered the winning team, Ireland!
After Sports Day, we cooled down by listening to a poem called the ‘Sound Collector.’ You can hear the poem in the video below.
Each team shared their ideas about the sounds of sports day and we began to create a class poem. After lunch the children worked independently on Purple Mash to put their own ideas into a Sound Collector at Sports Day poem. At the top of the post, you can see some of the wonderful writing they did.
Well done to all the super athletes and poets in 2F 🙂

Mathletics and Mangahigh are two excellent online Maths websites which give children the opportunity to practise their Maths skills in a fun way. The two programs are quite different; Mathletics has an excellent maths dictionary, concept search and excellent resources for teachers, while Mangahigh has some fun games and different resources.
We would like to know what you think of each game, so that we can plan how we will use these games to support Maths learning next year. Please can all children who have played the game, complete the survey below. Parents views would also be very useful; please could you leave a comment on this post or contact Mrs Fisher.
