Year 2 Home Learning – Tuesday 24th March

Tuesday 24th March 2020

Hello Year 2,

It was a strange day yesterday as I was working with Year 2 and 3 children but in a Year 1 classroom. We are all experiencing changes to our normal routines but I’m sure you enjoyed yesterday and are ready to carry on with your fantastic learning at home today.

I joined in with the Joe Wicks P.E lesson yesterday morning and my legs are hurting today.

It was wonderful to read what you have been up to. Children have been reading in different languages and exploring different topics with their families. Remember to comment on the blog so we can see how you are getting on.

Here is a reminder of our timetable for our learning this week.

    I’ve emailed copies of Callan’s work in again. It’s interesting to see how he works and what he’s doing at school. It also helps having a big brother as they played football together while i got on with some work 🙂
