Week 14 - Home learning - Year 2

Week 14 

Home learning - Year 2 

Year One | Huntingdon Primary School

Good morning everyone,

It feels very strange writing this weeks blog as it is our last week of Summer term which means its the last week of Year 2. We would like to congratulate all the children for staying motivated in these uncertain times, you have all been amazing! It is very sad that we won't be able to say good bye to our classes but we wish them the best of luck for Year 3. We have been working closely with our Year 3 team and they're currently planning exciting lessons for you all.

This week you will be receiving a call from your child's current teacher to discuss your child's end of year report and also a call from their teacher next year so they can introduce themselves and answer any questions you may have. These calls will most probably come from a withheld/unknown number, so look out for the call.

This week we have planned lots of exciting transition activities for you to complete, please see the timetable below:

Week 14 - Home learning

We would also like to thank all of the parents/carers for their hard work over these last 14 weeks. It has been a very challenging time but we have made it through together.
Enjoy a well deserved summer holiday!

                                                                               Take care,
                                                                         The Year Two Team

Good morning everyone,

It feels very surreal (and a bit emotional 😥) writing this week's blog, as it is our last week of Year One. We are sure for many, many of us, it has been a time like no other, but especially for our children. They have been such an amazing year group and we are incredibly sad that our time has been cut short.

However, we have been working closely with our Year 2 team who are very excited about the year ahead with them. As part of the transition, 3 of our team will be moving up with the children. Miss Davis will be moving on with Apricot Class, along with Miss Maguire from Beech and Mr Reeve from Walnut Class.

Thank you to everyone who submitted questions. We loved hearing about what the children wanted to know. Below are the lovely Year 2 teachers answering the questions. You will have to excuse the pace of the video (it is a little fast, you may need to watch it a couple of times). Creating and editing videos is a new skill which still needs perfecting 😂.

    Year Two Team for September 2020

    Meet the Team - Play Works

    Hi Year One,

    It is now the time to introduce you to your lovely, amazing teachers for next year!

    If you are currently in Walnut Class, your new class teacher is going to be......

    Miss Tynan

    "Hello Walnut Class. I'm the Year Group Leader and also your teacher. Next year will be amazing. We have so many new and exciting learning opportunities planned for you. I can't wait to get started!"

    "We are going to be in Mulberry Class. The classroom looks a little bare at the moment as a Reception bubble is using it, but when you come back in September it will be ready for you. We are talking to your Year One teachers to find out what your favourite things are and to make sure we bring them with us."

    If you are currently in Apricot Class, your class teacher is going to be......

    Miss Davis

    "Hi everyone, I am so excited to be with you again next year. I feel like the luckiest teacher in the world! We are all staying together but we are moving to a new classroom, how exciting!"

    "We are going to be in Pine Class. It looks a bit empty at the moment as Reception is using it as a bubble, but I will be coming in over the summer to put my stamp on it so it is ready for us to start in September!"

    If you are currently in Beech Class, your new class teacher is going to be......

    Miss Hamilton

    " Hi everyone! I have been in Year 2 for the last couple of years and I can tell you, it's an amazing year! We have already started planning new and exciting topics. The only thing missing, is you guys!”

    We are in Rowan Class, which is opposite to Mulberry and Pine. As the other teachers said, it is looking a bit bare at the moment as it is being used for a Year 1 bubble, but by the time you see it, it is going to look amazing!

    This the Year 2 outdoor area. Just like in Year One, the outdoor area is used as an extension to the classroom with many learning opportunities taking place outside. 

    Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing videos featuring your new teachers, so keep an eye out! 

    Many Thanks 

    The Year One Team
