Week Commencing 1st June 2020


Dear Year 2, 

We hope you all had a lovely half term holiday. We hope you managed to get out for some exercise and have lots of fun playing. We went out for some nice walks and bike rides!  


We hope you enjoyed the activities we set before half term and we would love to see some of the things you have been doing. You could also send us anything exciting you may have done or made during the holiday. Remember to email us on hello@gig-mill.dudley.sch.uk, putting Y2 in the subject box. Thank you to those of you have already done so. It really does brighten up our day to receive a message from you! 


This week we are continuing with the Oak Academy lessons in Maths and English. There are some great challenges for you to try too.


For our topic work this week we are going to be finding out about Tim Peake and his epic journey to space. It would be great if you could find out any extra information which you could share with us.


We hope you will enjoy making your pictures of space- remember to be as creative as possible and think really carefully about the colour, shape and size of the different parts.


As always, remember to do your best with the activities and don’t worry if you can’t complete them all. Continue to find time to be with your family and help out around the house too! 


Take care, 


Mr Bottoms, Miss Davies, Miss Moore

Week Commencing 18th May 2020

Hello Year 2

We hope you have had a good week and have enjoyed the activities we have set you. Thank you for sending in pictures of your work for us to see. Remember, if you would like to share your work or send us any pictures, you can use the new school email hello@gig-mill.dudley.sch.uk (Please put Y2 in the email title/subject). It really brightens up our day when you do. 


This week we would like you to continue with the Oak Academy lessons for English and maths. As well as this you have some challenges in both subjects. Our topic continues looking at journeys and this week has a geography focus. Hopefully you managed to make the most of the dry weather and explored the local area last week. This week we would like you to compare it to a seaside location. In science we are continuing to look at materials and thinking about which would be best for making a boat. Don’t worry if you can’t complete every task, just try your best. 


The focus for wellbeing this week is Stay Safe and we are focusing on how we can keep safe online. In P.E. we would like you to have your own sports day. We have suggested different races you could do but feel free to think of your own. If you don’t have anyone to race against you could compete against yourself by doing the same race twice and trying to beat your time. 


We hope you all received and enjoyed reading your letter from your teacher this week. We all miss you and your happy faces. Stay safe! 

Miss Davies, Mr Bottoms and Miss Moore. 

Week Commencing 11th May 2020

Hello Year 2! 

We hope you have been making the most of the sunshine this week as well as enjoying some of the home learning tasks we set for you.  

Miss Moore, Miss Davies and Mr Bottoms have all been in school over the past 2 weeks and it has been lovely to see some of the work you are doing to make the school bright and beautiful. The amazing artwork on the school gates made us smile before we even got into school. If you live nearby its definitely worth walking past to have a look! 

This week we will be carrying on with our online learning for maths and English. Remember to also use what you have at home, maybe you could find some books and read one to your family that you haven’t read for a while. As part of your topic work, we would like you to explore your local area so hopefully the weather is nice and you can go for a walk.  

This week the focus for wellbeing is ‘Get Active’. We would like you to be as active as possible. This can be done inside your home or outdoors if the weather is nice. Remember that a healthy body equals a healthy mind. Make sure you encourage your family to get involved, this can be something fun that you do together.  

It has been lovely to see some of your work you have been sending in. Remember, if you would like to share your work or send us any pictures, you can use the new school email hello@gig-mill.dudley.sch.uk (Please put Y2 in the email title/subject). It really does make us smile seeing all of your hard work.  

We are really missing you all and can’t wait to see you
again! Keep up the hard work.

Week Commencing 4th May 2020


Good Morning Year 2! 

We hope you are all well, happy and enjoyed the tasks we set for you last week! We are very excited about the new topic of ‘Journeys into the Unknown’ and seeing the designs of your own rockets to travel into space. It would certainly be unknown for all of us to be there! It would be great if you could share some of your work with us by emailing it to the school at hello@gig-mill.dudley.sch.uk (Please put Y2 in the email title/subject) 

This week we would like you to continue with the daily Maths and English lessons on The Oak Academy website, hopefully you are enjoying them and learning lots from it. To go alongside this there are some extra challenges where you could describe a setting you might visit in your rocket and make your own obstacle course using directions to navigate it. 

This week, we'd also like to invite you and your family to join in the celebrations for the 75th anniversary of VE Day, which is happening on Friday 8th May. Please click on the link on the school website homepage or here.  

We all know how tough and difficult it is to be at home for such a long time now, but remember the more exercise and activities you can do will make you feel more positive, healthier and happier! 

If you can, take a minute to have a look our special video on the school website and see if you can spot all of the Year 2 team with our special words to you all. 


We all miss you lots, have a great week! 


Mr Bottoms, Miss Moore & Miss Davis 

Week Commencing 27th April 2020

Hello Year 2! 

We hope you are all well and staying safe with your families at home. We have missed seeing you all in school but hope you have enjoyed playing in the sunshine and learning at home! 

As we would now be starting our new topic in school, we thought we would share it with you and start to send some fun and exciting activities for you to try. 

The new topic for the summer term is Journeys into the Unknown. Over the next few weeks we will send ideas for you to have a go at including Maths, English, Topic, Science and PE.  

It would be great if you could spend a bit of time each day working through them and if you would like to share it with us, we would love to see it! 

We hope you enjoy learning about these new things and still have time to play and have fun with your families.

Take care, 

 Mr Bottoms, Miss Davies & Miss Moore
