Home Learning – Summer Week 4 – Year 2

Dear parents,

It was lovely to get the chance to speak to you and your child last week and I hope you found the conversation beneficial with regards to home learning and expectations. It’s nice to know we’re all in the same boat! You are all doing your best and deserve plenty of praise for doing a difficult job under difficult circumstances so it is very much appreciated. It was lovely to speak to the children too so a throughly worth while experience overall (I did not manage to call everybody so I’ll be doing another round of calls on Monday!).

The home learning grid focuses on reading and comprehension activities, finishing off our Pentecost topic, as well as science, and art and design. Please remember, you only need do what you can with these activities.
