Hello Year 2!


You're in to your second week of home learning and the last week of term. I can almost hear some of you cheering from here!


We are so impressed with the effort you have been putting into your home learning so far. It has been lovely to see some of you sharing this work with us. We are feeling tremendously proud. Remember, any work that you want to show us, ask a grown up to email it to the school office so we can see how you're getting on. 


Times Table Rock Stars Update:

2LW are still in the lead but it's all still to play for, with 2 days left till the competition ends.
