Transition week

Welcome to Year 2 with

Mrs Richards and Mrs Priddy!


Hello to all of our new year two children! We can't wait to meet many of you on Wednesday but for now we have some activities for you to think about ready for moving up to year two.


Each day we will give you two different activities to have a go at so we can get to know you.


Monday 20th July


Activity 1

What makes you happy? Have a think and talk through your ideas with a grown up. You can draw a picture or write in each bubble things that make you happy! We would like it if you can think about things that make you happy at school as well as home.

Activity 2


Starting a new year can be exciting and a chance to achieve new things! Have a think with a grown up about all the things you are looking forward to in your next school year.

You might want to think about different lessons or a skill you want to achieve.

Tuesday 21st July


Activity 1


Today we would like you to use the template below to create a sheet that is 'all about you' to show your new teacher next year! We can't wait to see your answers :) We will be telling you our answers when we see you tomorrow too. 

Activity 2


Your final task is to create a self-portrait. We would love for you to choose the style of your self-portrait. You could make a collage, painting or drawing. We can't wait to see what you make year 2 so please send us a photo to our year 2 home learning email address.


Thank you year two and we will either see you tomorrow or in September! 

Have a fantastic summer holiday.
