Well Year 2, it's been a whole half term since I last saw you and you saw me so here I am!  I wanted to share a story with you that will hopefully make you smile.  Have a well-deserved break, keep smiling and hopefully I will see you all soon.  : )

Please leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. (comments need to be approved by a member of staff before they are displayed on the page). Thank You.

Answering Meymoona(less than a day ago)

Hello Meymoona. I'm pleased you enjoyed the story. I used to read it to my children when they were little and they liked it too! An elephant playing Hide and Seek - how funny!

Meymoona Ullah(less than a week ago)

Good evening Mrs Burgess Thank you for the reading a book, what a funny story:). My best part was when the elephants trying to hide but they can’t hide .

Zain Ghafoor(less than a week ago)

Hello Mrs Burgess I hope you are good .Thanks! For sharing a lovely story with us . I really enjoyed it.I really miss you and happy to see you in the video. Take care and, Eid Mubarak

Answering Juwariyyah(less than a week ago)

You clearly need me to give you a specific task to keep you busy! Right. Get some paper, use your amazing drawing and writing skills, and make me a food chain of your choice. Remember you must always start with the producer (plant) first. I am looking forward to seeing a photo of your amazing food chain!! If you get this done, why not look at ways in which you can make your mum or dad smile by completing an act of kindness? Send me another message to let me know how you get along. : )

Hi, I’m bored at home

answering Retal(about a week ago)

Hello Retal. I'm not putting every photo on the class page that is sent in or else there would be just so many! I am however trying to put up at least one photo from everyone who sends a photo in during the week. If you would like to send more photos of your work to me, I would love to see them! (I am also sending messages through School Ping so that you know that I have seen all your work that you have sent in.) Look forward to hearing from you.

Answering Suhayb(about a week ago)

Your grandad must be very proud of you learning your times-tables Suhayb and you must be feeling pleased with yourself too! I'm looking forward to quizzing you when we do eventually get back to school! Keep up the good work : )

Suhayb Abid(about a week ago)

Hello Mrs Burgess again, hope you're well. My grandad has been teaching me some maths over the phone. He taught me my timestables and i have learnt all my timestables up to 11 and i have learnt how to add fractions.

Answering Yusuf(about a week ago)
