Welcome to Year 2
Please Note: I will not be adding daily Home Learning Tasks during the Easter Holiday period (Sat 4th April - Sunday 19th April). Instead there will be a range of activities for children to choose in the new sub-page Easter Holiday Activities. Don't feel you have to do all or even any of them if you don't want to. They are just there as ideas if children would like something to do.
Please continue to email any photos to firstname.lastname@example.org I will pick them up at the end of the holiday and put them on our 'See What Your Friends Have Been Doing' page.
For all home learning tasks, please click on the home learning tab above.
I have set up an email account so you can share all the things your child has done at home. I am really looking forward to seeing and hearing about everything you are doing with your child and receiving your messages. It will be strange not seeing the children every day and I will miss them all. I will be looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school when this situation is over.
Please could all parents check that they have the correct details for the new Y2 email address. The correct address is

PSHE: Healthy Me
Today we've been learning about the importance of relaxation and its role in keeping us healthy. We did a freeze frame of how we might look when we are relaxing and then we looked at different images of people doing relaxing activities and in stressful situations. We grouped them and discussed how the different situations made us feel and the impact on our bodies.

Y2 Class Performance: The Great Fire of London
I was so proud of all the children today for their fantastic performance! They have made such a lot of progress since we started rehearsing last week. Their speaking was confident, loud and clear their singing was tuneful and delivered with enjoyment and everyone was so smart. The dancers did a great job at representing the blazing fire. I know the children really enjoyed themselves and I hope you did too. Thank you for coming to watch and to support your child.
