Good morning Year 2

It was really lovely to speak to some of you yesterday and hear how you are doing. There is some amazing learning going on and we are so proud of the attitudes you have in this strange time.


Word of the day: momentum

What does it mean? Can you find synonyms for it in a thesaurus? 

Where do you think the word came from?

 Type 'momentum word origin' into google and find out!
