Friday 3rd April

Good morning Year 2! Well done to all of you for sharing your work on Purple Mash this week!  I have really enjoyed looking at the posts each day, where you have been so creative with things like; cooking, gardening and even pottery! As well as keeping fit and joining in with the daily P.E challenges. I have been so pleased to see that so many of you have started to comment on your classmates work and give each other praise and words of encouragement, which has been lovely to see! 

Over the weekend I will be putting on some Easter activities for you to complete but for today I would like you to start off by making an Easter card to give to someone in your family. Please post them on our class Blog for us all to see! 

Thursday 2nd April

Hello Year 2! I hope you are o.k. You have been so busy again blogging and keeping in touch with each other, which has been lovely to see. I have really enjoyed talking about all of your achievements and looking at your great creative work. If you would like a challenge please have a go at the Rainbow scavenger hunt. I will post it on Purple Mash.

Wednesday 1st April

The 1st April is also known as April Fools' Day, a day where people often play tricks or jokes on each other! I would like you to send me your best joke on our St. Elizabeth's Purple Mash Blog! I look forward to reading them all! :-)


Tuesday 31st March

Today is Mathias' birthday! Don't forget to wish him a happy birthday on our Birthday Blog!

Once again it is fantastic to see so many of you completing the tasks on Purple Mash. I have seen that Mrs Cracknell has been busy baking chocolate brownies with her family. I have also been baking and we made a yummy chocolate cake! If you have been doing any cooking I'd also love to see your recipes or pictures of what you have made! Take care x


Monday 30th March

Hello again Year Two! Thank you all for completing such fantastic work last week and for all of the photos that you have put onto our Purple Mash Blogs. I have looked forward to seeing them each day. I can’t believe it’s been a week since I last saw you but being able to keep in touch on our class blogs have really helped to keep the community spirit going. 

I have set a weekly selection of tasks for you to try to complete and hopefully you have your home learning packs to work through as well. 

I look forward to chatting with you again on our class blog during the week.

Don’t forget to wish Samuel a happy birthday on our new 'Birthdays' Blog on Purple Mash, as he was 7 on Saturday! 

Keep safe and stay in touch. 

Home Learning - Week beginning Monday 30th March


A message from Mrs Cracknell


Good morning year 2!  I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.  Last week was a very different week for us all! We were very lucky to get such wonderful weather and hopefully we will have some more of the same this week!


Above is your list of activities for the week from Mrs Gillett.  I have set some English, Maths and Science activities below for you to complete.  As I said last week, do as much as you can do. The English and Maths have three different levels. Pick the task which suits you best.  In addition to the activities below there is a Mountain Gorilla fact file activity on Purple Mash and a Measures task on My Maths.


I’ll be catching up with the blog today. If you do any Easter crafts make sure to put them on there! I made some chocolate brownies with my children this weekend, have any of you been baking? It would be great to see some delicious treats on the blog and please share any recipes because I’d love to try them out! smiley

Friday 27th March

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday!

Don't forget we are still going to be counting your reads, so if you have reached the next milestone e.g '100 Reads' please email the school office as soon as you can. We will also be choosing someone for Headteacher's Award and they will have their name in today's Newsletter. Finally, you may have already seen on the 'Artist of the Month' Blog, (on Purple Mash) that we thought it would be a good idea to award more of you winners now that so many of you are being so creative at home! I will now be looking out for 'Artist of the Week', whilst we are doing our home learning. Again the winner will be announced in the Newsletter! Good luck. 

Thursday 26th March

Good morning year 2! I hope you had a good day yesterday. It is lovely to have the bright sunshine again today. I will be starting a new blog on Purple Mash called 'birthdays'. We will be able to wish our class members a Happy Birthday. If it is your birthday please add a photo of your celebrations and tell us what you have done. I am still looking for an Artist of the Month, so get your artwork uploaded on the 'Artist of the Month' Shared Blog on Purple Mash. (Go to the green world icon called 'sharing'.) Take care. Lots of love, from Mrs Gillett x

Wednesday 25th March

Good morning Year 2! I hope you are keeping busy and enjoying working through some of the activities set for you on the home Learning page. It has been great to see so many of you completing the tasks on Purple Mash and taking part in our Class Blog. Well done! 

Home Learning - Week beginning Monday 23rd March

Good Morning to the fabulous year 2!


For most of you today is the first day of home learning.  Don't worry if you find it a little bit confusing to begin with, it's a new thing for all of us! Each day you will find new lessons and activities for you to do.  You will find a printed version of your Maths, English and Science work in your home learning packs.  You will find some extra English and Science activities on Purple Mash under the 'to do list' but remember these are optional. Don't panic if you don't manage to get everything done, do as much as you can.  If you get a little stuck remember that you can ask me a question on the Purple Mash St. Elizabeth class blog or your adult at home can email the school office who will forward me your message.


I'll be checking the blog regularly throughout the day so please upload any photos of what you've been up to or work that you are proud of. The blog is a brilliant way for you to communicate with your lovely year 2 friends too!


I look forward to seeing everything that you've been doing.  Don't forget to get some fresh air in the garden if you can and join in with the Joe Wicks workout at 9am on his youtube channel!


Have a wonderful day, 

Mrs Cracknell smiley

During the last fortnight we have been learning about instructions. The children have written recipes and had great fun making gingerbread men. They have also made beautiful clay poppies and wrote their own instructions about how they made them.

Congratulations to our Year 2 School Council representatives: George and Mia, who were voted for by their peers. Their speeches were truly amazing! Well done to all of the other children that also presented a speech to the class, as they displayed great confidence and enthusiasm.
Welcome to Year Two! We have had a fantastic start to the new academic year and everyone has settled in to their new classroom very happily. Below is the PowerPoint Presentation that was used in Mrs Gillett's Parent Information Session.
