 Welcome to the Year 2 

         Home Learning Page       

Friday 22nd May

It is strange to think that it is the end of half term today and we haven't seen most of you during this time. We hope you are all  safe and well.

Hasn't it been a lovely week? The weather has been beautiful and we know lots of you have been out in your gardens. It is really important to get outside for some fresh air and exercise.

Thank you for letting us know about how well you have been getting on with your learning. You are trying really hard.

We hope you enjoyed the butterfly book. Have you seen any butterflies? There have been a few in our gardens! We have also been spotting birds and other wildlife. 

It looks like you had some fun with the topic this week.  We have seen lovely flick books and some great movies that you have made too.

Thankyou for all your emails. Look at the photo gallery. They always put a smile on our faces!

Have a lovely half term break. We will be setting more home learning work from the 1st June.

From all the Year 2 Team
