To my stay at home superhero's I know tomorrow will be very different from the normal Monday's we spend together but I want you to know how very proud I am of you all for doing your part to help us all stay safe and healthy.
To my key worker superhero's I know you will be feeling very nervous about going somewhere different tomorrow but I want you to be the brave, happy confident children I have the pleasure of teaching everyday. You are doing an amazing job helping your mums and dads go to work to help us all stay safe. So treat it as one of our acts of kindness and make a new friend today by asking someone if they want to play and just so you know I am extremely proud of each and everyone of you.
You all have your packs of work to be getting on with and I will post extra activities on our class website page and on dojo's.
So do your bit by washing your hands, remember to do your act of kindness every day, complete your school work and don't forget to have some FUN!
see you all soon.
Love Miss Rush x
Your child will have received a QR login code for dojo's in their homework pack. Please log in to see extra suggested activities for your child to do at home. It is also a great way for us to keep in touch while we are away from school.
Please find below suggested timetables, activities and useful links to help your child learn whilst they are at home. Activities will also be put on dojos where the children are able to respond, show me their work and keep in contact.
Congratulations to Rose and Joey who have been picked as the winners of our monster sculpture competition. You will receive your prizes when we return to school.
A big well done to everyone who made a sculpture my niece had a difficult job choosing the winners as they were all so creative and imaginative!
On Thursday (9.4.20) we will be finishing for the Easter holidays. I know this Easter holiday will be different from the other Easter holidays you have celebrated but try to spend this time with your family and have some fun. I have put some Easter activity ideas and an Easter activity booklet below in case you want some ideas over the break. You can still send photos and videos of any activities you want to share with me on dojos. I will not post any work on the website next week as I think it is important for you to have rest. I will put some fun activities on dojos that you can continue to do if you wish. I will resume posting work on the website on the 20.4.20.
I hope all of Class 2R and their families have a lovely Easter. Stay safe and keep being amazing stay at home or key worker superheros.
Love Miss Rush x
I know a lot of you will be using ipads, tablets, computers and iphones a lot more while you are at home but remember what we have learnt about staying safe while online. Think back to our Digi Duck stories and always remember to think before you click and check with an adult.

I'm loving the monster sculptures you are making. I was so impressed I decided to make my own with my niece Annabelle. Take a look below. Don't forget you still have until Tuesday to enter the competition. The winner will be picked by my niece Annabelle and will be announced on here on Wednesday-the prize will be given when we return to school. Good luck!

Well done to all the children who have already sent me their mystery object photographs. Keep them coming!
Quiz time-can you guess what the mystery objects are? Answers will be posted next week. Good luck!
Looking for something fun to try then why not try this scavenger hunt that you can do inside. This was found by Amelie and she enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt herself. Well done Amelie a great find and thank you for sharing it with us!
I know lots of you are working very hard on your dojo tasks and the homework website tasks but make sure you take some time to have some fun too. I have created a chart of some fun activities that you can do indoors so if you are feeling bored or want something to make you smile then try some of these. Remember you can always share some of your fun activities with me by sending me a photo or video on dojos.
Fed up of staying indoors, then try some of Miss Rush's ideas for fun activities in the garden. Remember to send photographs of any that you try through dojos.

We have learnt about significant historical figures this year who all kept diaries during events in the past such as Samuel Pepys, John Evelyn and Edith Cavell. We learnt how these diaries are an invaluable source as they are an eye witness account.
Why not write your own diary during the Coronavirus outbreak? Who knows some time in the future children could be using your diaries to learn about the past.
write an entry for each day (does not have to be long)
Describe what you can see and hear
Talk about what you have done
