Hello! from Mrs John! :)

Good Morning Year 2. I have missed seeing you all each day, but have loved checking in on your learning and seeing all of your 'shining brightly' photos in the slideshow. Your hard work, beautiful crafts and creations have certainly brought a smile to my face! 
Have a lovely Easter break and i look forward to catching up with you all soon. From Mrs John. x

Good Morning Year 2! HAPPY FRIDAY!! :)

Woo! we've made it to the end of  our second week working from home! You have adapted to this challenge exceptionally well and Mrs Payne, Miss Neville and I are ever so proud of you! 

If you haven't seen it yet, here is a photo of the cake I baked yesterday. I'm quite proud of how it has turned out! :) Let me know what you think using the comments box below or by sending me an email. Does it deserve a place in the Shining Brightly Slideshow? 

 

Hi Everyone!

I got in to abit of a pickle whilst making my sock puppet. Class 6 will know how tricky i find art and craft - Mrs Eastman usually makes them for me! I snipped off the wrong part when cutting out the tail and ended up with a huge hole, so had to use some different socks instead! My finished puppet is below... let me know if you can guess what it is now. (Fingers crossed!)

Remember, if you, or your grown-ups at home have any questions, want to send in photos, or just say hello!... you can contact your teacher directly using the emails below:
