Year 2 Home Learning

Dear Chipmunks and Ladybirds,

We hope you have all managed to have a rest and have done some of the things you would normally enjoy doing together during the holidays. The weather has been perfect for getting outdoors and it would be great if you could keep this up in the coming weeks. Please share the newsletter below and find out about what you will learn this term. 

We are back to posting a weekly home working grid with your learning for this last half term of the school year. Remember to look for our website page with the date of the current week. The green boxes are activities we think are really important for you to keep up with and the white boxes are activities you can choose to do.

All of your teachers are missing you and would love to hear about any school work or activities you have done at home. Please send in photos or email us your news at:

year2@dovecote.school

Our Wildlife page will be very important to us this term. Let's fill it with photos of as many different animal species as we can find. Good luck to everyone doing the 30 Days Wild Challenge this June. 

From the Year 2 Team!

Here is some useful advice for parents and carers:

Keeping fit and healthy

A lot of you have been keeping fit with Joe Wicks each morning. Here is some information Mr Yates would like you to read about physical activities you can take part in alongside other school children in Nottingham.

What has Mrs Loughran been up to?

I spent a lot of half term in the garden and outside at the park. I love looking at wildlife and managed to take a few photos so have a look at some of the things I found on our Wildlife page.

Wii fit

As well as getting outdoors for my exercise I have got my old Wii out again to help me keep fit. I like doing the jogging and boxing.  

70 years

It was my dad's birthday at half term. I delivered a present to him and we talked doing social distancing. It wasn't what we had planned for his special birthday! Can you work out which year my dad was born in?

Best wishes to all of you who have celebrated during lockdown.

I was very sad not to be able to take some of you on the Year 2 camp this year. Some of you had a go at camping out at home. Send in some photos if you haven't already. I taught Lennox how to put up the tent by himself. We had hot drinks and ate smores and finihed with a couple of games of Uno. Here's Lennox, Max and I enjoying sausage sandwiches for breakfast after our night camping in the garden.

What has Miss Measom been up to?

Last week I spent some time re-decorating as I have recently moved into a new house. I am giving the walls a new coat of paint and putting down a brand new floor!

One of my favourite past times is reading and I have already finished a book this week.

I decided to re-read one of the classics- Jane Eyre. I think I have read this book four times now!

Jane Eyre

I have been making sure I get my daily exercise through both yoga and walking.

It has been lovely enjoying the sushine and listening to the birds tweeting away in the trees. It's definitely starting to feel like spring!

Next week I hope to start some jobs in my garden. I have a tree root that needs cutting back and some very long grass to cut.
