Moving to Year 3

Over the past few weeks, we have been having a taster of what it is going to be like in Y3. We are moving up into Aquamarine Class in Y3 and our new teacher is Miss Croxall. Our new teaching assistant is going to be Miss Beckingham.

Lots of things are going to be different next year. We will have a different classroom, a different cloakroom to put our things away in and different toilets to use but most of all, we have to go up some stairs to get to our new classroom.

Click here to check out Aquamarine class blog here to find out what they have been up to this year. All the exciting learning that we will do in Y3 will be on this blog too.

We are very excited to becoming Y3s but we will miss Miss Varley and Miss Morris.

The final piece of homework given is to be completed over the holidays. Can you do any of the things on the list below? Send some photographs and a message to Miss Croxall to let her know all of the fun things that get up to in the holidays.

They could be:

  • Ride a bike in the sunshine
  • Visit the seaside and look at how it different to Manor Top
  • Go in the garden on a bug hunt.
  • Visit the library and take part in the Summer Reading Challenge. Click here for more information.
  • Eat an ice cream with your friends
  • Have a sleepover
  • Eat a picnic in the park

Any photographs or messages can be sent to


Y2 Class Assembly

This week we had our class assembly and this was our chance to tell our grown ups and the rest of the school what we have been learning about this year.


This was our chance to sing some of our favourite songs and tell everyone about our fabulous trip to Whirlow Hall Farm. Click here to see the original post.

Thank you to all of our grown ups for coming to watch us.

Whirlow Hall Farm

This week, we had the most amazing opportunity to visit and stay at Whirlow Hall Farm on our first every residential. It might have been raining whilst we were there but that didn’t dampen our spirits and we had the most amazing time!

Here is just a little peek at some of the things that we got up to while we were there…

Getting excited on the minibus on the way there

Eating lunch

Being outside

Supper time


Grooming the ponies

Grooming the rabbits and guinea pigs

Visiting the hen house and collecting eggs

And our favourite part of the whole trip was being able to have a pony ride on Ruby and Bonnie.

Pearl class would like to say a great big thank you to Whirlow Hall Farm and our 480 sponsor Best Solicitors for making this trip possible. We really have had the best time ever.



Pride of Prince Edward

Check out the latest winner from Pearl class of the very prestigious award, Pride of Prince Edward…


Here is why he won…

He is an absolute pleasure to have in class and makes the classroom a brighter place to be. He is kind and considerate to his friends and will always help out a friend in need. He works well with others and can always be found somewhere in the classroom trying to extend his learning independently.

Maths, maths, everywhere!

Just because it is our KS1 SATs week, it doesn’t mean that we can’t make our learning fun. Today we played a maths game that challenged our understanding of maths problems in numerals and words.

All around the classroom were different maths clues that we had to solve with a partner. It was fun working with a partner to solve the clues!

Sometimes we could do the problem mentally or sometimes we had to use a whiteboard to help us to show our working out.

It was a race to see who finished first! Here are our winners! Well done everyone!

Next week is our KS1 SATs Week.

The children have been working incredibly hard over the last few months. All of the adults in Year 2 would like to acknowledge all of the determination, perseverance and effort that the children have shown.

Thank you to all of the parents and carers that have supported their child with their reading at home, weekly homework and extra work to help each child to reach their potential.

We wish all of the children the very best of luck. Have a lovely weekend and come to school on Monday with a smile on your face!

The Year 2 team xx
