Over the last week, many of you have been reflecting on your time in Year 2. You have made memory jars full of the best bits; thought about what you are good at and of course, saying goodbye and thank you to your teachers.
A BIG thank you to all the 'home teachers' who have done such a good job at supporting the children with their learning while they haven't been at school. Their learning has been able to continue so that they are ready to come back to school to begin Year 3. I have loved receiving your e mails each week. I hope you all have a super summer holiday and you remember to keep smiling and stay safe.
The space project from last week has certainly got some of you very excited. I have received some really great work from you this week.
While keeping up with his Maths video lessons and spellings, Harry has also built himself a jet pack for a space voyage. He has learnt a mnemonic to remember the order of the planets in the solar system and has written a beautiful leaflet all about Mars. Excellent work, Harry - well done.
Take a look at Natali's amazing chalk drawing of the planets. She has used really beautiful colours and shapes to create the solar system.
Aidan has been working really hard with his handwritng and has labelled his own rocket design.
Chloe, Evie and Amelia have been creative this week. Chloe has enjoyed following steps to draw her own cat while Evie and Amelia have made fortune tellers which show some their tricky words spellings. What a great idea!
Kai has also been creative and built and painted this excellent rocket! I love the colours on this Kai! He has also learnt about the different planets in the solar system and has written a very detailed fact file about Jupiter. A fantastic effort, Kai!
Harry has become an expert on the planet Venus. He has read lots of information about the planet and has made his own factfile. He has drawn a diagram of a rocket and has included labels to tell me which parts are which.
Kes has designed an invitation to a rocket launch party, (which sounds like a lot of fun!) He has also found out about the temperature of some of the planets. A super effort boys, well done.
Marcy-May has been inspired to write her own story this week because of a painting she has done at home. She used watercolours to create this beautiful sunset which gave her the idea for her own pirate story. An excellent idea to get writing Marcy- well done!
Mason has got fully immersed in our Space project this week. He has written a fact file about the planet , Mars, designed his own planet and even tried his own space food! Mason wants to be an astronaut when he's older so he also thought about some of the things astronauts do when they are in space. Excellent effort, Mason!
Kai and Kes have learnt different ways to say hello and found out about different flags of the world.
Thank you and well done to Harry C, Aidan, Chloe and Arya for sending me some of their work. They have been busy with their learning projects as well as keeping up with their phonics, spellings , reading and maths. Well done to you all!

Thank you to Marcy-May, Storm and Mason for sharing their home learning with me. It is great to see your reading, drawing, writing and creativity while being at home. Your teachers at home must be very good! Keep up the good work!
