Merit League Table and Quiz Results

Happy Friday Year 2!


Today would have been the last day of the Spring Term. So you won’t find any new learning on the Yellow News page for the next two weeks. There might still be some videos. Ms Essor is going to finish reading Hodgeheg. Will Max stop wuddling his mords? Will Max find a safe way to road the cross?


Expect another video from me too, as I take you on a tour of the countryside. It’s very different to West Green!


It was nice to talk to lots of you and your families on the phone this week. As you will know, I’m still doing merits. You can win merits by making a comment to any of my blog posts, by sending any work to, or by doing MyMaths or TimesTables Rockstars.

  • Claudine Geddes says:

    Amelia Earhart was the best explorer because she followed her dreams. And never changed her mind.
    From Nala

    • Mr Morgan says:

      She didn’t let anyone stop her from doing what she wanted to do. Let that inspire you too! She proved a lot of people wrong!

  • Melina Ada says:

    Amelia Earhart because she followed her dreams and I want to do that too.

    • Mr Morgan says:

      So you should Melina! You can achieve anything you want to achieve if you have the same belief and mental strength that Amelia Earhart had.
