Good morning Year 2
Good morning Year 2,
I hope you are all well and have enjoyed a nice, relaxing Easter weekend with your families. We have some more exciting activities to share with you today, as well as some reminders about extra daily activities if you wish to continue with these. You may choose to complete 1 activity each day, 1 a week, or you may decide to complete your own activities, or have a complete break. All of these options are fine, as these activities are only ideas, and are optional. You may also wish to continue with your daily activities, which are listed below.
We continue to be available via our Year 2 email address at email@example.com, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have, to share work with us, or just to say hi! We love hearing from you.
Thank you again for all of the hard work and effort you have all been putting in over the last few weeks. We really appreciate it, and its clear from the emails we have been receiving that the children are producing fantastic work. We hope you have a restful remainder of your holiday, and enjoy some family time together.
The Year 2 Team
Share your work!
We’d love to share a piece of artwork your child has done. It can be of anything – a rainbow for the NHS, a piece of home learning, a poster, a drawing, a painting, a design, anything! Just make sure you only send in a photo of the work, not the child or anything on the photo that may identify them (e.g. full name). Simply email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do the rest! We’ll make a video montage of it, and share it on our website. We would love to have as many entries as possible. Closing date is Sunday 19th April!
