Welcome to Year 2!
Wednesday 1st April
Hello Year 2. Well, today is the first day of April, and is traditionally known as April Fool's day. Have you played any tricks on members of your family or were you tricked by someone this morning? Mr Lowrey has videoed an assembly for everyone to see about the traditions of April Fool's day, and you can see that on our website under the heading 'Assemblies'. Do take a look.
Well, I have been really missing my little Llamas while we have been having to stay at home, so I decided to do some baking yesterday. I made some cookies in the shape of ... yes, you guessed, llamas! Here they are:
I just wish I could share them with you all.
We are beginning our Easter break tomorrow, so perhaps you could do some Easter baking or some Easter art activities. Don't forget to complete your Purple Mash activities, and we will be adding some new tasks after the Easter break.
Happy Easter to you all.
Tuesday 31st March
Well it's the last day of March Year 2! I wonder if you can remember what is special about tomorrow?
Mrs Parker-Gorman and I have been very busy putting extra things for you to do on Purplemash. Firstly, Polar Bears, I have put a noticeboard up for you too, where I have already put some of your work for display. To see this you need to look at the bar at the top of your Purplemash page and select 'Sharing'. You will then see a polar bear icon, select this and you are there! Llamas, I know you have already done this!
Secondly, both Llamas and Polar Bears, we have created a class blog for each class, where you can send messages, work or pictures of what you have been doing at home or on walks to show us. This will only appear to your class teacher first and then we can approve it for the whole class to see. To find this you again go to your tool bar on Purplemash, then select 'Sharing', then select 'shared blogs' and finally your class or subject icon.
Well as well as checking and marking your work, I have been in my garden again, this time collecting eggs from Greta and Bruce Goose. Their eggs are HUGE and very good for baking, so today I have been making some cakes. Unfortunately, Bruce Goose does not like me taking the eggs, so I have to run very fast after I have collected them! Here are some pictures of the geese and Mrs Carter's cakes.
