Shade Primary School

Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day

Year 2


Mrs Fogg- Class Teacher

Miss Douglas - Teaching Assistant (pm)

Mrs Rennoldson - Teaching Assistant (am)







As you will already be aware, Shade School will be closed from the 20th March until further notice. Children who were in school on 19th or 20th March will have received a Home Learning Pack. On the back of the front cover is your child's TTRS and Purple Mash log on.  Your child will also have come home with their learning log which has a project in for them.  Any work that they do as well as the project can be done in the learning log and kept all together ready to share with each other when we get back.

Below I have uploaded some activity packs to keep Year 2 busy! Both packs contain a range of Maths, English, History and Geography topics.  Your child can pick and choose which activities to do and in what order.  I will keep this website page updated and I will send regular texts.   Finally please keep yourself safe.  Mrs Fogg, Mrs Rennoldson and Miss Douglas. 


I will update the spellings on here every week and text to let you know when the new ones have been put on.

Monday 3rd February 2020 - Todmorden Fire station

 Year 2 had an amazing visit to our local Fire Station.  We found out what equipment is on the Fire engines and what it is used for.  We also got to sit inside the Fire Engine, it was a bit tricky getting out of it though.  To finish our trip off, we got to pretend to be fire men and use the hose.  That was the best part of the day!

Tuesday 24th September 2019 - Thornton Hall Farm

Year 2 had an amazing and busy time at Thornton Hall Farm on Tuesday.  We got to meet lots of animals, feed the claves and the lambs, stroke ponies, guinea pigs and rabbits, went on a safari ride, where we saw a great, big bull called Marshall and a red dear called Bruce who had very impressive antlers.  We even had time for a play before we had to come home.
