Year 2 Lionfish

Hello Lionfish class,


Mrs Olaide here, writing to you from our colourful but quiet Lionfish classroom. It hasn’t been the same without you all over the last few months. You’ve been dearly missed. You have all continued to work incredibly hard, trying your best in this tricky time and we want you to know how proud we are of you all. 


I must say what a wonderful class you are. I have thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together; learning and sharing knowledge, laughing and watching you continue to grow into the fantastic children that you are. I feel so lucky to have been a part of your learning journey at Singlewell, I only wish it had been for longer.


Miss Furzer is very lucky to have you, I know you’ll have a brilliant time in Year 3-Key Stage 2!

I hope to see your smiling faces again soon.

Best wishes to you and your family,

Take care,

Mrs Olaide   XXX


Hello to all my little Lionfish,

I would have been with you all for 2 wonderful years now and it has been a shame that we haven’t got to spend the last term together having lots of fun!

I have loved seeing you all grow into such hardworking and caring children. It has been a pleasure to be your teaching assistant.

We have had so many good times over the past 2 years; with lots of laughter, singing and dancing around (of course lots of fun work too). I will miss you all very much and I hope you enjoy your summer holidays. Make sure you keep yourself safe and well!! Lastly, don’t forget to come and see me when you are all grown up Year 3s!!

Lots of love

Miss Ward XXX

Monday 20th July: IT'S PARTY TIME!


At Singlewell, we usually celebrate the end of the school year with a class party. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this together as a class this year, however it doesn’t mean you can’t have a celebratory party of your own with family.


You have all continued to work incredibly hard, trying your best in this tricky time and we want you to know how proud we are of you all


Below you will find a selection of ideas to help get your party started. We would love to see any photos you take so do email them over to your teacher!

Hello Lionfish class,

I hope you are all well and keeping safe. It was wonderful to speak to your adults and hear about how you are all getting on. I am so proud to hear of Lionfish children being so helpful towards their adults at home. Well done for being so kind and caring. It’s been great to see and hear what you’ve been up to for your home learning, so many of you have been completing lessons on Reading Eggs and have been busy on Mathletics. Well done you!


Miss Ward and I miss you all lots and we often remember the fun we all had, laughing at my butter fingers on the laptop, dancing while getting our belongings ready to go home and singing to ‘Old Town Road’ in the line ready and waiting for 5 past 3. We both stand outside and clap for our wonderful carers every Thursday evening, proud and grateful for the hard work our key workers are continuing to do. I’m still out and about walking most days, on my VE Day walk I saw neighbours having afternoon tea in their gardens, I heard that many of you celebrated by having an afternoon tea or picnic with your families too.   


Do remember that you are helping a lot by staying at home. Spending time with loved ones and showing kindness to the people you live with is really important. I’m sure you’ve been doing lots together that you wouldn’t normally do when you are at school or when the grown-ups are at work, so enjoy making lots of family memories. I’ve included an idea below that you could create over half term to record your memories.


Take care and keep up the hard work at home.

Best wishes to you and your family,

Mrs Olaide & Miss Ward


Try this half term task if you have some spare time...

Have you ever heard of a time capsule? Maybe your adult can explain this to you!

Can you make your very own time capsule so that when you are older you can look back at this time and remember all of the things you did?


Ideas for your time capsule: On a piece of paper (you can decorate this if you like) you could write:

· Your name

· What day it is

· Who you live with

· How old you are

· What you want to be when you’re older

· Things you have really enjoyed at the moment, e.g. spending time with family, playing board games etc.


You could also draw a picture of you and your family or include a real photo to look back at in the future. Add in some things that you want to remember this year by. Maybe a rainbow picture, a thank you picture for the NHS.

A selection of healthy eating menus, new vegetable super heroes, pirate ships, a variety of beanstalks and some number facts.

Please refer to the 'News' section of our website and then 'Letters' to complete our online survey as soon as possible. It has also been sent to you via the Smartschool app.

More exciting adventures of Supertato and pirate ships!

Supertato sequels and wonderful treasure chests!

VE Day Celebrations!

Supertato to the rescue!

Arrrrr, treasure!

Making the most of the sunshine!

Clapping for the NHS!

23rd April 2020

Hello Lionfish class,

I hope you are all safe and well. I’ve been making the most of a daily walk in this glorious weather, appreciating the wild bluebells and hawthorn blossom, as well as tulips growing in front gardens. Spring is most definitely in full swing! I hope you’ve been safely enjoying the sunshine too. Like many of you I have also created a colourful rainbow for my window, and enjoy spotting others when out walking. Have you spotted many rainbows? I have spoken to Miss Ward, she has been out for sunny dog walks and has played many games of Uno with her family. We both clap for our wonderful carers every Thursday evening and think of the hard work our key workers are doing. Have you been staying up a little later to do this too?

It’s been great to see and hear what you’ve been up to for your home learning. Well done for all of your hard work so far. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about the life of a pirate. How brave and fearless you would need to be!


Take care and keep up the hard work at home.

 Best wishes to you and your family,

Mrs Olaide
