Week 13 – Week commencing 6th July

Hi Class 2!

I hope everyone is well. There are some really fun activities for you this week – please see the timetable and the resources below.

You have your maths lessons, or course – you can either do the White Rose activity sheets or the BBC Bitesize lessons. Your English this week is the Mission Possible booklet – and you’ll get to plan and write your own story this week!

There is also an online safety activity, a science lesson and a Geography lesson all about the oceans. I’m very excited about this one, as you can imagine! I’ve also asked you to do some more of the ‘Draw with Rob’ activities – we really enjoyed doing this at school so I hope you enjoyed it at home too.

I hope you all have a great week. I miss you all very much. Please get in touch on Purple Mash and say “hello!”. It would be lovely to hear from you.

Miss Hailes

Hi Class 2 - I hope you enjoyed 'Draw with Rob' on Friday! Here are some of our creations!

Here is the link for those of you who would like to have a go at home. 

Week 12 – Week Commencing 29th June

Hello Class 2!

I hope you are all well and that you had a lovely weekend. I went for a very long walk on Sunday so my legs are a bit achy! But it was great fun.

There are some super activities for you on this week’s timetable. We are starting a new Talk 4 Writing English booklet called ‘Mission Possible’. This is a longer booklet so it will take us two weeks to complete it. On the timetable, I have suggested which pages to complete on which days – but you can do it differently if you like. Just don’t go past page 22 – that is for next week!

Also this week, you have online safety, science, geography, D&T and art activities – and of course maths (white rose or BBC Bitesize).

I’m very excited about the art activity. You’ll be learning how to draw like an illustrator. I’ve had a go myself and its really good fun!

I hope you all have a fabulous week. Don’t forget to say “Hello!” on Purple Mash and let me know what you’ve been up to!

Take care,

Miss Hailes

Week 11 – Week commencing 22nd June

Hello Class 2!

I hope you are all well and keeping safe!

Please see this week’s timetable below. As always, the timetable contains a range of lessons and activities that you could complete at home. Remember that the home learning tasks we set are just suggestions, and you should only do what is achievable for you and your family. If you would like to send in any photographs or work you have completed, please use Purple Mash or e-mail them to the school:

We will be welcoming some class 2 pupils back to school this week, but the home learning timetables and resources will continue as normal. If you need to contact me, please contact the school office and I will call you back.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week! I miss you all very much.

Miss Hailes

Week 10 – Week commencing 15th June

Hello Class 2!

I hope everyone is well and keeping safe.

Please find below this week’s timetable and all the resources you will need. I hope you enjoy this week’s activities – you will be writing Howard Carter’s diary that you planned last week. I have put an example diary here too – can you see where I have described what I could see and how I felt? I would like to see exciting description in your writing, too. You will also be doing an internet safety activity, a science lesson, a French activity, a geography lesson and a quiz all about the Egyptians! Also this week, for D&T, I’d like you to create an Egyptian tomb using a cardboard shoe box (or similar box).

I hope you have fun! As always, If you need anything please contact the school office:

Take care everyone!

Miss Hailes

Hi Class 2

I hope you've been enjoying learning more about Howard Carter and his discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.

Here is an example of a diary plan - this is the kind of thing I am looking for. If your plan does not have much detail then you might want to add a bit more - use the BBC video and the power point to help you.

A more detailed plan will help you next week when you write your diary entry. One or two words in each box will not be very useful!

Miss Hailes

Week 9 – Week commencing 8th June


Hello Class 2!

I hope everyone is well and keeping safe.

I really hope the weather improves this week!

You will find this week’s home learning timetable below along with all the resources you will need. Monday is World Ocean Day so I have included a brilliant fact file all about dolphins, plus a couple of dolphin activities for you. Also this week, you’ll be learning about how to write a diary entry, and about how Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb. And then you’ll be planning a diary entry from Howard Carter’s point of view! There are also maths, science, RE, art and e-safety lessons included in this week’s timetable.

I hope you all have a fantastic week, and please don’t forget to upload your work onto Purple Mash.

Stay safe!

Miss Hailes

For parents - additional home learning resources

Here are some fun science activities. Many only require typical household items. Warning: Some can be messy, so if you can, do them in the garden!

Transition Letter

Please find below a letter from Miss Hailes providing details of the new school year from September.

Home Learning

You will find your suggested weekly timetable below, which I will update regularly. Please do not feel you must do all of the activities in one go and feel free to adapt these activities to suit you and your family. I have also included a list of useful links for learning below. Have fun, and remember, the children may be just as stressed as you during this period of change, so if they don't feel like doing their maths one day, do not worry, just do what you can.


Their well-being is paramount at this time.


In your child's home learning book, you will find all the relevant online log-ins along with other documents that you may find helpful.


Thank you for your support during this time. I am available for advice and support via the office email.

World Book Day! On Thursday 5th March, Denton school joined in with World Book Day. The theme this year was 'Share a Story', and that is exactly what we did! Here are the Class 2 children enjoying sharing their stories. We also did a quiz, a word search, designed book marks, and wrote character descriptions.

Spring Term - How does the weather vary on our planet?

Well done to these Class 2 pupils for creating these fabulous MyStyles! Our theme was 'Roman Inventions'. Super effort!

Class 2 enjoyed a fabulous day vitising The Collection. They were archaeologists, shield-makers and Roman Army soldiers for the day!

Leader in Me.

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)


Growth Mindset


This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.

British Values

Homework is given out every Thursday, to be returned by the following Thursday.  It will consist of both English and Maths and will include Mystyle projects as well.


Children will also be tested on their spellings and Times tables on a Thursday.



Useful websites for additional homework ideas.
