Hello Year 2!
We hope you and your families are well. We hope you enjoyed the work on the weather (we ordered the variety of weather on purpose 😉!). The next two weeks on animals 🐻 🐼 🐨 🐯 🦁 & dinosaurs 🦖 🦕 are your last before the Summer holidays. We have been so proud how you have embraced all your home learning as well as finding time do all sorts of other wonderful things. We have loved seeing all your photos, chatting on the phone and reading your emails. WELL DONE YEAR 2!
Some of you are coming back to school this week, either on Tuesday or Thursday. Below are some photos of how the school and classroom looks so you can have a peek before you come in.
Your home learning continues with another two weeks worth of work (06.07.20 & 13.07.20) ✏️🗒📏. If you scroll down you will find all the documents 📑, links 🔗, games 🕹and activities ✂️ you will need. We have organised the webpage with more headings so these should be easy to find and access. The documents etc for the next two weeks will be at the top of each subject section. Remember there are also some great mindfulness 🧘♀️ 🧘♂️ exercises you could try too.
We hope you are enjoying the videos, activities and facts we are putting onto the webpage. Please keep sending us your photos.
⛔️🖐 Please remember to always make sure an adult knows which websites you are accessing and if you see something that makes you uncomfortable, minimise the screen and tell your grown up straight away. 🤚⛔️
Take care, keep safe, keep washing your hands and remember to social distance!
Love from Mrs Vickery and Mrs Hawkins
