Purple Mash Coding and Gooseberry Planet (e-safety)

The Y2 children have been working so hard on their coding skills recently. Don't forget to use your Purple Mash logins at home, you can access coding, games, activities and more! 


You are also able to access Gooseberry Planet at home - our e-safety website. Again you can access a range of games and activities all based around staying safe online. 


If you have lost any of your logins, please speak to a member of the Y2 team. 

What we are learning...

This term we are focusing on a new and exciting topic called Wriggle and Crawl. We will be focussing on minibeasts and are really excited to explore and learn more about insect adaptations and their habitats.

Let's get creative!

Each week we are developing our skills in painting and drawing. We have so far been focussing on the techniques of sketching and stippling. The children have created some wonderful artwork in their sketchbooks. 


The links below will take you to some short videos, which we have looked at to develop our skills. Why not have a go at home! 



A quick reminder!

Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school (t-shirt, hooded or zipper jacket, joggers/shorts, pumps or trainers). Our P.E lessons will take place on Wednesday mornings. Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school, these can be purchased from the school office at a cost of £1. Thanks!
