Friday 8th May: Year 2 go merit crazy!

Happy weekend Yellow Class!


It’s been a bank holiday on Friday, but it hasn’t stopped you commenting or sending me work. There have been some very special pieces of work this week and it’s been nice to see some new children making comments, using Purple Mash, or doing times tables rockstars. I’ve set some of you challenges, and Kianosh has been setting nearly everyone challenges! To do a challenge, play “Rock Slam”.


Here is Mr Morgan practising his times tables on “Studio”. Remember, I am an adult!






I’ve tried to set it up so that most of you are only practising your 2s, 5s, 10s and maybe your 3s. Please let me know if it is giving you other times tables that are too tricky, so I can try and fix it.


Lots of you are still sending in pictures, which is great! Adem has been writing sentences about dinosaurs, inspired by reading the book Monstersaurus.


Kianosh has been enjoying Purple Mash this week! Also, Vihansa won the Scientist of the Month for sending me lots of extra work. Here are the photos.




Vihansa has also asked me to share something with the class. I’ve spoken to some of you on the phone who wanted to do this as well. Just email me at and I will post it next Friday. Edasu! I know you want to!



“Buddhist people all over the world celebrate festival of ‘Vesak’ tomorrow. Vesak is one of the most important Buddhist festivals. It is a celebration of Buddha’s birthday, enlightenment (when He discovered life’s meaning) and death.
I like to share this fact with my friends.
In Sri Lanka, we make Vesak Lantterns. I also made a colourful lantern with the help of my family and sending you’ll a picture to enjoy.”




It is making his brain melt, because you won more than one-hundred merits this week!
