Messages from Mrs Yiasoumi and Mrs Charalambous

It's Half Term!

It is hard to believe it is half term - it has been a very different term so far but hopefully we can see each other again soon. 

Thank you to everyone who has sent in work and photos/videos. It has been lovely to see you all smiling! 

 

Just a quick reminder that we will be moving over to Google Classroom after half term (from 1st June). Log ins have been emailed across and, within that email, there is a link to show you how to use it if you are unsure.

 

Have a lovely half term and see you over in Google Classroom :)

 

Mrs Charalambous & Mrs Yiasoumi

HELLO MY LOVELY PEOPLE!

 

We hope you are well! 

This is a reminder message to please email us your report comment. There is an example in the planning folder, with some prompts of what to add. 

 

Remember this is going on your End of Year Report, try to think of all the great things we have done in Year 2!  (Some reminders in the folder.)

 

Some of the ones I have received have been great and really thought out, thank you for those!

 

Have a great day!

 

 

Hello year 2 - you have been busy!

 

What lovely fairy stories you have written and Josh your scary monster story was amazing.

Your handwriting has come on so well, you must be in line for a pen licence when we go back to school.

 

The cookery looks fantastic- great birthday cake Sadie. I hope you enjoyed the day.

This week Mr Grew and I had a pizza making competition.  I think I got Star Baker with my seafood pizza.  

Mr Grew made ham, mushroom and peppers.  What do you think, which looks the best?

Maybe you could have a family bake off and make your own delicious pizza with your favourite toppings.

I would love to see pictures of them and possibly we could swap our personal recipes.

This morning we've made bread for our lunch. Do you remember making bread last year with soup?

Will you be making anything special for the VE celebrations?

 

I hope you are all keeping well and looking after each other.

Keep safe and happy.

 

Mrs B Grew

 

 

 

Good morning Year 2! 

 

There was a slight blip on the planning this week for English! 

On Friday, it should have said:

 

Well done you have finished your story!

 

Use this session to present your story in any way that you wish. 

 

You might want to: 

  • Create a PowerPoint for your story
  • Make a video of you reading your story (see Mr Brown's uploads for inspiration!)
  • Write it out using your absolute best handwriting.

 

We look forward to receiving more stories from you! 

 

Mrs Charalambous & Mrs Yiasoumi

We have had a few emails and questions in regards to your comments section of your report. Here is a great example of what could be written in yours!

Hi all, 

 

I hoped you liked my video this morning (saved in the video folder) as I mentioned before below is the link for the song we are going to be learning. 

 

At this moment in time I have someone recording a British sign language version just for our school.

 

Attached is the link for the song with the song words, please feel free to start to learn this. Once we have the BSL video we can add the signs.

 

I've been singing it non stop ( I think my neighbours must be going crazy, even Angelo's joining in.)

I hope you like it as much as I do, it makes me feel happy.

Good morning all, 

 

I hope are well and settled back into home schooling after a nice break.

 

This is a quick message to let you know I have changed this weeks Art lesson.

 

Our Andy Goldsworthy collages should have spanned over two weeks but I've received lots of pictures and most children have completed this. (If you haven't, please feel free to do so)

 

As it is St Georges day tomorrow i thought we could do some craft activities to celebrate this special day. I have attached a link to the planning document with ideas, I have done this as I don't know what resources you have at home and want everyone to join in. If you are struggling with resources, drawing a picture would be just as lovely. 

 

I hope you enjoy this.

 

Happy St Georges day for tomorrow!

 

Love from your teachers who are missing you !

MESSAGES FROM OUR LOVELY TEACHING ASSISTANTS!

Hello Year 2

 

I have missed you all so much. I often look at the school pages to see what you have been up to.

I can see there has been some amazing cookery going on.  I have been cooking too- lovely pies, cakes and hot cross buns.

Yes, the oven was a bit hot for the buns, but they still tasted good!

I spent most of the sunny Easter days in my garden planting flowers and vegetables.  

Can you see the white blossom tree?  Its a cheery cherry- I hope we get some big red cherries soon.

I was lucky enough to get a close up picture of a Tortoise Shell butterfly. Perhaps you could take some wildlife photos in your garden or while out for a walk.

I read a good book over the holiday. It was set in Venice, Italy and was about a family in the war, I couldn't  put it down.  

I hope you've found some gripping books to read as well.

 

Keep up the brilliant work at home.  help your family, keep safe and happy.

 

Look forward to seeing you all soon.

 

Mrs Grew

Nice to see the sun has been shining for us all makes me smile . I have been doing some courses , sorting out my mountain of recipes and getting my teenager into cooking. I’ve been doing some colouring in books called mindfulness in my garden . They take a bit of time but it’s fun and I’ve even been using pastel and glitter pens . I enjoyed helping Alice make her Easter cheesecake it looked pretty and tasted delicious. Looking forward to doing art activities with Alice or even on my own . I’ve seen you all have been busy doing your online learning but also having fun with your families. Which is so lovely to see . Your all doing amazing .

Hello Year 2 ,

I hope you are all having a lovely time with your family and also working hard with your home schooling. I miss you dearly and can’t wait to see you all again soon.

Well I have been busy studying too and making videos for the reception children with the puppets. They have been busy learning too !
My children, Luke 19 and Ben 15 are learning how to bake and cook as well as studying. They have helped with some painting and gardening too.

In the evenings we play the monopoly board game and the PlayStation monopoly too, it’s such good fun. 

I’m looking forward to seeing you all and hearing all about what you have been up to at home.

Take care , Mrs Bateman x

A big welcome back!

We have missed you!

We hope you have have a rest, enjoyed some quality time with your family over the last two weeks and had a Happy Easter. I can't wait to see all the things you have been getting up to.

 

Mrs Charalambous and I have been spending time with our children and enjoying the sunshine. As most of you know we are both Greek Orthodox so we celebrated our 'Easter' a week after Easter (the weekend just passed.) We have lots of Greek traditions that we try to stick to, the most important being EAT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! We dye hard boiled eggs and play a game where we crack them together to see who has the 'champion egg!'

 

We also do lots of cooking and baking, I made special rolls and shaped them with Angelo and Christopher's initials.  

 

As well as all that fun, I have been doing lots of gardening. I've now planted some tomatoes, strawberries and some new flowers.  I will upload photos when they start to grow, I cant wait to eat them.

 

I had so much fun helping Christopher with his year 3 project, he is learning about the Romans so we decided to make a Roman Villa. This was super hard and fiddly and took us a few days to finish but the end result was worth it! 

 

I will post all the work into the relevant folders for this week, as always please remember to email for support or if you have any questions. We are more than willing to help.

 

Mrs Yiasoumi and Mrs Charalambous 

 

 

 

 

Hello from Mrs Charalambous and Mrs Yiasoumi!

 

Can you believe that next week will be the start of the Easter holidays? We know that it has all been a little strange and somewhat surreal but we have been impressed by how you have all worked so hard. We absolutely love receiving your work and we both light up when we see new emails ping through! It’s great seeing the work you have done and the creativity at home has been overwhelming smiley

 

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for working so hard and taking such pride in your work. We also must say a very big thank you to those at home who have helped guide you with your work and have been very supportive during this time.

 

We hope you have all enjoyed looking through the Hall of Fame section on our class webpage – it’s a great way to be able to see what your friends have been up to. Don’t forget that we also post messages up in the Messages section so do keep an eye on our posts!

 

We will be setting an Easter project for the next two weeks for you to complete. Details will follow in a separate post, explaining everything you need to know and what will be expected.

 

Don’t forget that it is your time to rest too (and eat chocolate eggs!) so enjoy time at home with your family and friends and you are more than welcome to email across what you got up to during the holidays! 

 

We look forward to hearing from you in the coming weeks.

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Kindest regards,

 

Mrs Charalambous & Mrs Yiasoumi

It's Thursday already!

 

The week has really flown by and it's been an absolute pleasure to receive your emails of what you have been up to smiley

 

Both Mrs Yiasoumi and I have been very busy making sure you have plenty to do at home but we have also had time to have some fun too! Today we have been playing around with augmented reality - and you can do this too! There are a range of animals that you can have right there in your home (but without the mess to clean up!) and you can take some great photos with them.

 

How creative can you be? Email your best pictures to us and we can upload in a little gallery on the school website. 

 

If you are unsure of how to set this up, watch the video below. You need to have Google Chrome installed on a device and you can search for the list of animals in 3D that you can have in your home. 

 

Any questions, feel free to drop us an email and I can try to help but hopefully the video explains it.

 

Have fun! laugh
