Dedicated to all my lovely children in Russia class. I have had a fantastic year with you. Wishing you lots of love and best wishes for Year 3.

Hello everyone


It has been a  very unusual but great year with Russia class. Although it was a short year in terms of time at school, it feels like we packed a lot in!  Thank you for sending photos of your children at home and supporting them throughout, with their learning.


I am very much looking forward to September when we hopefully get time to see the children again and to help ease them into Year 3. Miss Austen, who has been working with the children throughout the year will be moving to Year 3 with them, which we hope will be reassuring for the children. 


Our final Zoom call is on the 21st of July at 10:15am and I am very much looking forward to seeing you all there.


As term finishes on Tuesday 21st July, I have planned two days of home learning activities as usual - please see the link below.


Further to this, along with the rest of the school, we are setting a 6 Week Summer Challenge for the children.  This takes the form of a variety of activities to do during the school holidays, to provide the opportunity for continuation of learning. These activities are entirely optional.  The challenge is to complete 15 minutes of an activity to receive a 'reward'. Please scroll down to see the new link with details of the Year 2 6 Week Challenge. Please let me know if you need paper copies and I will get them printed by Tuesday the 21st of July.  


In September I look forward to celebrating all of the children's hard work - whether it be work completed, as home learning during term time and / or the 6 Week Summer Challenge. 


Please do contact me if you need clarification on anything.


Wishing you a wonderful summer,

Mrs Ganguly

Look at how we have been keeping busy at home!

Russia class have been very busy and are enjoying their home learning activities. Well done for all your hard work. A BIG thank you to our parents who are making it exciting and enjoyable for us.

Please keep sending your photos! 

Look at what we have been doing:
We had such a fun, muddy time at Forest School!  We loved exploring our outdoor space, playing games, making and following trails for each other. Thank you to Miss Barratt for organising such great activities for us!

The children had a great time at their Christmas party.

We have been learning about Apollo 11 and in DT we are making our own rockets.  In science we made our own 'rocket explosion' by adding some mints to Coca-Cola.  We loved the result!
We went to West Park to explore how it has changed over the years.

Our classroom is full of wonderful time-machines that are ready to zoom back into the past or into the future!  We loved showing and talking about our creations.
