Year 2 - Mr Blake

Class Information and Welcome

We are a happy class of 28. Our teacher is called Mr Blake and our teaching assistant is called Mrs Riley. We learn new things everyday and enjoy school very much.


We love singing and enjoy performing to the rest of the school and parents when we do our Nativity play at Christmas and our class assembly.


We work hard and love to take home stickers and certificates.


We need a PE kit in school everyday. We remember to bring our book bags to school each morning  and work hard on our reading throughout the week.


We also enjoy practising our spellings and playing maths games at home using the TT Rock Stars website.


We are also sharpening our grammar skills online this year using the website.
