GOOD MORNING YEAR TWO

It's Going To Be A Great Week! Happy Monday! Pictures, Photos, and Images  for Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Twitter

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend. 

Your work that you have emailed to me has been fabulous! I am so proud of how this is helping you to continue to make good progress in Year Two. Please keep this up - I know it is harder when you are not in school.

Remember that you only need to email work on Wednesdays and Fridays and I will tell you on here which pieces of work to send.

 

Monday 25th January - Whole-school Learning Focus

In order to enhance our learning, and allow siblings to work together, we have decided that each Monday we will have a whole-school focus on an interesting topic. 

It is all linked to the curriculum and we have extended it for different ages, but we felt working together would support the learning process.

Below are the learning tasks for today. The tasks that have 'essential' next to them must be completed. Once the essential tasks have been completed, you can choose from the choice tasks.

The tasks that have 'essential' next to them must be completed. Once the essential tasks have been completed, you can choose from the choice tasks.  

It says on the whole school learning page to email your writing today but there is no need for Year Two's to do this as I saw your fantastic writing on Friday. 

We hope you enjoy this format and would love to hear what you think of it!!

Enjoy todays lessons
