Wilstead Primary School Learning for Life


Year 2 (Dragonflies)


You made it!  It is the last week of term.  We hope that you have had a good week and thank you to everyone who joined in with the virtual sports day.  The home learning for the week commencing 13th July is below.  Don't forget Monday is an INSET day, so school is shut to all (except the teachers, who are all in training.)  Thank you so much for all of the kind messages and support, it is greatly appreciated.  We wish you a wonderful summer holiday, keep safe and have fun!  


Don't forget to keep reading and doing Mathletics over the summer!

Mental health awareness week 


As you may be aware with the media campaign this week is ‘Mental Health Awareness’ week. Please don’t forget to take some time to look after yourself and your children- go for a walk, do some yoga together, paint a silly picture, appreciate the spring flowers or lay on the floor and make pictures from the clouds. We’re well aware of how many pressures are on adults and children at this time. Take the afternoon off and enjoy each other’s company. They’re only little for such a small amount of time.

You’re all doing great, take that bath, have that cake and reward yourself for getting through the weeks. You’re amazing 😉 

Book cover challenge- I LOVE these please keep them coming!

Happy 75th VE Day !

 I’ve been hearing that quite a few of you have been researching WW2 and VE Day this week. Amazing!! I’m honoured to be able to share some original photos with you from VE Day. How amazing are they! In the table picture Taylor’s great Grandmother is one of the children sitting at the table celebrating and the other picture is her mother so Taylor’s great great grandmother on the left hand side holding the baby.
Thank you so much for sharing these, they’re amazing! Please share if anyone else has any pictures they’ve found from their research this week! 

Stay safe Dragonflies, hopefully you’ll enjoy a scone or two! (Cream then jam!!! )  

Get Caught Reading! Year 2- find the most bizarre place you can to read your favourite book and get your grown up to photo it. Send it in and let’s see if we can all “get caught reading”. Credit to our fantastic Dragonfly parents for this idea!

Dragonflies, you’re marking me so proud having to add more photo blocks!

Hello Dragonflies!

Not my favourite thing to do but just a little check in to say hello- missing you all!

More fantastic pictures from this weeks learning. Please keep them coming! If I've said I'll add you and I've missed you please let me know.

Learning so far in pictures (Don't forget to keep sending in your pictures for us to share)

Have you run out of reading books?


you can find a HUGE range of reading books - many the same as we use at school. These are staged to make it easier for the children and all free. All you have to do is set up a parent log in and browse away! 

The children recieved a message from The Hulk asking them to design and make a Superhero vehicle. After lots of cheering and excitement we set to work. They produced lots of amazing designs. Then with junk modelling, recycled materials and art resources we went about creating our vehicles. It was great to see everyone focused and enthusiastic. There was lots of patience, while waiting for cellotape and glue, but also lots of cooperation and kindness which was lovely to see. The final results were brilliant. We even had time to evaluate our work!

Year 2 kicked started the year off with Gymnastics in P.E! They worked on a range of ways to travel and jump across benches, mats and apparatus especially working on landing straight and pointing their toes. Good job Year 2!
