Another weekend has gone by and another week of fun learning lies ahead. I hope you all managed to think of 10 things that make you happy after reading my last message; if not, have a go, it’s important to think of the happiness in our lives.
I do hope you’ve all had a super weekend, the highlight of my weekend was Elodie saying ‘Eh up duck!’ Very funny indeed.
Anyway, below is lots of new learning for you to do day by day as well as some new art learning objectives and activities. Don’t forget the BBC Bitesize lessons too, it would be great to hear that you guys have been doing other subjects like music, geography and computing. Have fun everyone and keep the email updates coming!

I hope you’ve all had a super week! I will be adding the new learning on the learning zone on Sunday, ready for Monday. There will be new English and maths tasks and also some NEW activities and ideas for our topic area, with a particular focus on art and design – so keep your eyes peeled.
Over the weekend I would like you to think of ten things that make you happy…here are mine…
Elodie, Mrs Welsh, my family, my best buddy Mr Flint, porkpies, clear blue skies, cups of tea, Juno my floppy eared basset hound, books and YOU LOT OF COURSE!!!

Hello there girls and boys!
Mr Welsh here, emailing from his home office with Elodie trying to close the laptop lid (not helpful!).
Another week has gone by and another week of smiling at all of the lovely work that has been sent through. If you didn’t get in touch last week, I’d love to hear from you all and update my Wow Wall!
I am really missing you all. I’m sure we are all missing someone in our lives at the moment but remember, tough times don’t last but tough people do and I know Year 2 are a tough bunch of cookies!
Check out the new learning! There is new English, maths, spelling, and reading comprehensions. Also, I’d love to see some science learning so use the BBC Bitesize link to find some juicy experiments!
Speak again soon! Mr Welsh 🙂
Hello again I just thought I would write a midweek message! I hope all of your learning is going well? I’ve really enjoyed reading and seeing what you have been up to on my email. With all this online learning going on, it’s really important to remember our internet safety skills that we have learnt in school. A visit to the website thinkuknow is really helpful to remind us all how to be safe online. I have added a permanent link at the top of the page for you all to use.
Have fun with all of your super learning!
Hi all – I have uploaded 3 reading comprehensions for you to carry out throughout the week. It is important we keep up those reading skills so have a read, answer the questions and perhaps think of your own questions you could ask. I will upload 3 new comprehensions each week for you to keep up those important skills.
Hello hello, Year Two. How has your week been? Thank you to all of those who have sent me more learning; some of it is fantastic! I have uploaded some super writing on the Wow Wall so go and check it out for inspiration.
I’d love to hear from you all about what you’re reading at the moment! Send some pictures of you reading – you can make these fun and unsual and I will put them in the ‘Get Caught Reading’ section! I have also put on some new learning in the ‘day by day learning’ but have had a different idea for spellings…check it out!
I look forward to hearing from you all again – remember – GET CAUGHT READING!
Hello everyone! I hope you have had a lovely Easter. If this is the first time you’ve been on since before the Easter period, check out the previous messages on the link below.
As we start the new summer term I thought it would be a great opportunity to start our new topic! Our new topic is ‘Horrible Histories’ where we think closely about Kings and Queens from the past, their way of life and what it was like in different times. On this page, I have set different tasks for lots of different subjects that link to our new topic. They are a bit like our GANAS project ideas so get creative and have fun whilst learning along the way. Remember, any online learning you do, think about our important online safety rules. If you have forgotten any of them, click here to look through them.
I have also set a short maths and English task for each day that you can complete. Your spelling, reading and multiplication practise should be happening regularly too so use the reading, spelling and maths areas on this page to keep those skills alive.
Please keep sending me updates by email so that I can post your success on this website. It is so great to see the different learning you are doing and even better for me to share your achievements with your friends on our WOW WALL! The WOW WALL is now at the bottom of the page and so is the virtual thumbs up!
Easter Messages from Mr Welsh:
Hello hello hello Year Two. I hope you have all had a lovely Easter so far, the sun certainly has been shining for you all! Do you know how I just love learning? Well, I thought I would learn a new instrument during the time we have to stay home and have got my very own ukulele! Check out my progress so far! I make a few mistakes, but remember, mistakes are marvellous when we learn from them! What new skills have you learnt this Easter? Have you got anything to share? If so, send me an email! Thanks to all those who have emailed me recently. I will be uploading NEW learning material from 20th April, so keep your eyes peeled!
Miss you all!
Do something creative everyday; creativity is intelligence having fun!
Well, the end of the spring term is here and what a funny one it has been. I am sad that I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I usually would have with all of you. What makes me really happy is that you have taken all that we have learnt and used it to be my inspirational, independent learners. I have received so many wonderful emails of your wonderful learning and I can see all of your individual strengths shining though. Above all, you have all been smiling which is just perfect because we all know that what we learn with happiness, we never forget! I am not going to set new tasks over the next two weeks, instead I am going to ask you to read lots and choose some of the family learning from the family learning choice board. Enjoy every moment with your family and make magical use of all this spare time. Happy Easter everyone. I miss you all.
Quote of the day ” Learning is a treasure that will follow its pirate anywhere!”
I am so so SO impressed by everyone who has got in touch over the past few days. There are so many different types of learning going on and most importantly, everyone is smiling. Keep up the wonderful learning Year Two and check to see if you have a mention on the Wow Wall!
I have added some extra reading tests in the reading section; give them a go and remember to use the text to prove your answers. Don’t forget the Day by Day Learning section that gives you a maths and English task you can have a go at each day.
Also, in our writing section there is a new image called ‘Animal Town’. It is from Pobble 365 and is perfect for our Africa topic! Give it a go and send in any of your creative pieces of writing!
And finally, to cheer us all up, here is the wonderful Michael Rosen and his Chocolate Cake recount…

Hello again everyone,
I hope this message finds you all with a smile on your face and you have managed to have a go at some of the activities below. I have decided to set an optional daily task for English and maths that you can take part in to learn new skills. I will keep all the original activities and websites below and update the spelling lists because these are fantastic to keep our brains working! Also, don’t forget Pobble 365, TTRS and IXL – they’re great to keep those skills alive! Also think about the project ideas that are at the bottom of the page. I miss you all so don’t hesitate to email me any of your work that you’re proud of! Thank you to those who have done so already! Take care children!
