Good morning Year 2

How are you doing today? We love talking to you on the phone and hearing how you are doing. Don't forget to check on your friends to see how they are too.


Word of the day: characteristics

How many sounds does the word have? Use your magic fingers 

What does it mean? Can you look it up in the dictionary?


Philosophical question: What is friendship?

Miss Wilson: Friendship is one of the most important relationships we can have. It means caring for people, looking out for them and supporting friends. Friends should always be there for each other in the good and bad times. You can rely on your friends and go to them for help. You can make new friends when you go to new schools, start new clubs and go to new places but the best friends will always remain. Friendship is sharing experiences and memories. I love doing things with my friends and miss them lots while we are apart at the moment.

Miss Williams: Friendship is a very special bond between friends. It's a relationship built on trust, support and fun times. It's important to have and to look after your friendships throughout life as they help to make you who you are. Friendships are made through shared interests and good times but friendships are made stronger through hard and challenging times.
