Year 2

Dear Year 2,


We are updating the website weekly. Please don't feel like you have to do all of the activities, but we just wanted to make sure that you had enough to be getting on with! The weekly themes are 'Animals,' 'Under the Sea,' 'Dinosaurs,' 'Knights and Castles,' 'Heroes,' 'Materials' and 'Summer.' We hope you enjoy the activities!


Hopefully, we will see you soon, but until then, this is what we are up to for the next couple of weeks... Mrs Bayes and Miss Macleod are continuing to work with the keyworker children in school and Miss Longman is looking after some of the children coming back into school in Year 1.


We miss you all very much and can't wait to see you again soon to hear what you have been getting up to. 

Stay safe at home, look after your family and keep smiling those lovely, big smiles!


Love from

Mrs Bayes, Miss Longman and Miss MacLeod
