A huge well done to you superstars!!!
Miss Howes and Miss Rowland
Friday 17th July 2020
Good morning guys! Today is the last day of Year 2 for all of you and although it feels strange that we are not in school to say goodbye to each other, we would like to say a HUGE well done to you all. We wish that we could give you all a massive hug before you go and enjoy your summer holidays. You have all worked so hard this year and you have made us feel so proud.
We have been so impressed with your home learning activities each week that it has been so difficult to choose our Stars of the Week so this week our stars are every single one of you!
Thank you all for making us smile and laugh every single day this year. We have loved every moment of Year 2 with you all and already can’t wait to see you all in September.
We hope that you, your grown ups and your families have a fantastic (well-deserved) summer break!
Love from Miss Howes, Miss Rowland, Miss Mullett and Miss Higgins

Using a dictionary or Word Hippo: https://www.wordhippo.com explore and write down the meaning of these words in your home learning journal:
Watch the video all about Chester Zoo: https://www.chesterzoo.org/our-zoo/about-our-zoo/ and look out for the key words you found the meaning for.
Listen to this poem and write down all of the words that rhyme in your home learning journal.
Today we are going to think about our own poem about animals. Watch parts of this clip (it’s quite long so you don’t have to watch it all) and write down all of the animals that you know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VajIfQrjWkA&t=253s
Think of words that rhyme with the animals that you have written down and try and make your own poem i.e.
Don’t feed the camels
Or the hippos
Remember that the sloths
do not like moths,
and that wombats
absolutely hate hats.
Become a football star and play this game. How far can you get?
Think about someone that you love but who you have not been able to see or hug for a while. i.e. a teacher, friend, grandparent.
What have you done to keep in touch with them?
Think of all the activities that hedgehog and tortoise did in the story and complete one of them for the person you miss and love.
Ideas you could use:
- A letter to a friend
- A painting for a grandparent
- Film yourself dancing and send in to a loved one to cheer them up
- Sing a song with someone you care about

As this is the final day designing our theme park, today we would like you to use equipment available in your house (e.g. cardboard, Lego, building blocks, papier mache), to create a model of your park. This could be all of your park or just a section of it (e.g. create one rollercoaster).
We hope you've had fun designing your theme park over the last week! We can't wait to see what you have come up with so don't forget to send your work to Y2@mostonlane.manchester.sch.uk!
