Welcome to Blue Class, Year 2!
Your class teachers are Mrs Sandhu and Miss Doyle
This year we are focusing on Kindness. We are extremely kind to each other in Blue Class and we will be celebrating this throughout the week. Please see some activities below that you can do to put a smile on somebody's face
1) Choose a friend in the class and write them an email on 2Email explaining why you like them and what is special about them
2) Try and compliment somebody in your house at least once a day
3) Write a kindness poem on PurpleMash
4) Read books about kindness. Try listening to 'The kindness quilt' and 'Have you filled a bucket today?' on youtube.
5) Do something everyday that will make somebody smile. Maybe you can help with chores at home without being asked or making your parents breakfast in bed
Link helpful for children with SEND/ ASD
Please use the link below to access some fantastic interactive resources for your child. Digital skills are based on key thinking skills like being able to spot a problem or figure out why something happens. These resources touch on elements of the computing curriculum and highlight the skills children need to become digital citizens Enjoy, have fun and stay safe!
If anybody has completed their Science shoebox projects can you please email pictures to the class email address email@example.com I would love to see what you have created and post it on our website for all to see

We had an unexpected visitor drop into our classroom over the weekend...
They left a few of their belongings behind. Can you guess who it might be?
During Black History week we learned about Mary Seacole.
Her life and work inspired us to write some poems about kindness.
