Good morning Year 2!
It’s another day of home learning.
We’ve seen some great work that has been emailed to us, and we’d love to see more.
Remember we have a zoom register at 10.20am every morning. It is important you log in to this on time so that we can say good morning to each other, complete an online activity as well as explaining our work for the day. A link for this has been sent to the parent email you have registered at school. Please email us at the Year 2 email address if you need a new link sending to you.
Please bring paper and a pencil/pen to the zoom register.
Please remember to comment on the blog when you have completed your tasks, and to email us your completed work so we can see what you have been doing and support you if needed. Work can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day and we will be waiting for you when we can all go back to school together!
