Year 2 – Final Video

Hi all,

This is our final video of Year 2.  We want to say a huge thank you to all the grown ups for your support over the past few unusual weeks – your children are so lucky.  Once again, we have been amazed by the children’s work this week.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed photographs and videos – we have loved having the opportunity to continue seeing the children learn and develop.

We hope you enjoy this final video – get your tissues ready!

Take care and have a great summer.

The Year 2 team 😊





Transition Week home learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

Many of you will have received your child’s home learning pack for transition week in the post, and if you haven’t already, I know you’ll be eagerly waiting by the letter box!

If your child attends school in a bubble, they might have brought it home with them already. Also, children who are in school on a Monday or Tuesday will be given their packs in person.

For children who are attending school in the last week of term, there will be lots of time and support to complete the activities here at school. However, we still wanted you to have a copy of the activities so you could share in the experience and talk about it together at home.

We would really encourage you to share your home learning during transition week with your new child’s teacher/s. Some activities can be posted back to school in the envelope provided. Alternatively, sent a picture to them via email (new class teacher emails are included in the packs). Check out your new year group class blog for updates too!

Below are the packs for your information. We have tried (really hard!) to make sure the correct pack was posted to the correct child, but just in case one slipped through the net, here are the resources for you to access.

If you have any questions, or we can help in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Year 2 Movie – week beginning 29.6.20

Wow Year 2, you have blown us away this week with your hard work – wait until you see some of the fabulous posters on sporting heroes.

On Monday, you will start your last home learning pack from Year 2 because the following week, your new Year 3 teachers will be setting your work.  We have absolutely loved teaching you all and want to say a huge THANK YOU for all the effort and hardwork you have put in, when we were in school and since lockdown.

Enjoy your last week of being a Year 2 pupil – we can’t wait to see pictures of your work and what you have all been getting up to.

Have a great weekend.

Keep smiling,

The Year 2 team 😊

Year 2 Home Learning – week beginning 6th July

Hello everyone,

Here is your home learning pack for week beginning 6th July.  This will be the last Year 2 home learning pack you will receive because next week, your new Y3 teachers: Miss Cooper (Y3K), Miss Ellis and Mr Beard (Y3W) will be sending you some exciting activities to do for your final week before the summer holidays.  You are all just so amazing.  We have been so proud of what you have done this year and you should all be too.  Don’t forget to send in photographs of your work or other things you get up too.

Have a great week and keep smiling,

Y2 Home Learning Week beginning 29.6.20

Hi Year 2!!

What a fabulous week it has been! Hopefully it has mean that you have been able to enjoy being outside as much as possible.

We hope you have enjoyed the Sports Week and managed to beat the teacher on some of the challenges! Mr Beard’s was particularly challenging, so well done to those that beat him!

It’s been great to talk to some of you and your parents/ caregivers this week. We miss you! Hearing how you have been getting on has been fab. You are all working so hard.

Some of you are starting to really miss school and your friends so it’s been nice to hear that you have been able to see a few people out and about (socially distanced) around Totley.

Here is this week’s learning. As always – do what you can. Try your best. That’s all we ask of you.

Please send photos of your work-and if anyone wants to send in their completed posters to school that would be amazing – the best ones will be displayed on the Year 2 corridor board!

Thanks again.

P. S A couple of parents have asked for extra work – so it is attached here as separate documents (Additional Reading Challenge/ Maths Extension Challenges) to our weekly home learning packs. Please note there is no expectation to do this – it is there to be used only if you want it.

Virtual Sports Week

Hi everybody,


The week commencing 22nd June would have been our school sports week. We would have completed many challenges throughout the week, had some extra PE lessons doing some unusual sports and competed for our house teams on sports day. Unfortunately, our plans have had to change, but we can still celebrate a week of sport at home or in our bubbles at school.

Attitudes to Sport

One of the projects you can have a go at, is to think about famous sports people from around the world and how they have demonstrated our attitudes to learning to help them succeed. Have a look at the PowerPoint presentation link below to help you create either a factfile, PowerPoint or a poster about a sports person.

Sports Week 


Virtual Sports Day

On Friday 26th June it would have been our Sports Day at Abbeydale. We have created a ‘Virtual Sports Day’ set of challenges for you all to have a go at to try and win the trophy for your house.

A big thanks to the Mrs Crookes for helping to set this up and to all the teachers who have filmed themselves completing the 7 challenges.
