Monday 30th March
Good morning and happy Monday Year 2.
We hope that you are all still smiling and you are taking care of yourselves and your families. It is important to keep busy in the next few weeks - keep your brain and body exercised!!
We have been trying hard to stay active and have been learning to skip again. This week we are going to try Joe Wick's PE lessons, have you had a go yet? Let's see if we can all do it everyday.
Also this week, we have been working from home to ensure that you will have plenty to do so that all of our hard work continues whilst we are away from school. We will update you on this further, later on this week. So keep checking the Year 2 page, keep working through your packs, and get don't forget to use Timestable Rockstars.
How many books have you read this week? Miss Borrell read two with her daughter, one in the garden and one in bed. Miss McKirgan has also been working hard, she read 1 more than Miss Borrell, how many did she read? Keep a record of the books you are enjoying reading at home so that you can recommend these books to us.
Remember to be happy, safe and kind to the people around you!

Things to Remember
Reading Books should be brought to school each day. It is important that your child reads every night and that you sign the home reading record every time you read with your child. Books can be changed throughout the week. Each day we keep a record of who has brought their reading book in to school. Children can earn stickers for every 5 books they read.
Homework will be sent out on a Friday and must be returned by Wednesday (or earlier). Each week we will send a piece of Maths and English homework. Spellings will be sent home on a Tuesday and children will be tested on Mondays. Children that do not complete the homework will be required to complete the homework in their own time. All homework must be completed neatly.
PE Year 2 do PE on a Wednesday. Make sure that you have your PE kits in school on these days :- yellow t-shirt, blue shorts and pumps or trainers for outdoor games.
