Year 2- Friday 17th April

Good morning Year 2

Hello Year 2,

We hope you and your families are keeping well. Have you had a good breakfast and warmed your body up ready for the day ahead? What will you achieve today? Maybe you can set yourself a challenge to complete a random act of kindness for someone you love. Perhaps you could pay them a compliment, or help them with a job. Maybe you could thank them for all of the things they do for you, or write them a letter? Kindness doesn’t cost a penny, but can really make someones day.

Remember that we are contactable via our Year 2 email address at year2@stmarksce.org.uk and would love to hear how you are getting on!

Have a lovely day,

The Year 2 Team

Year 2 – Wednesday 15th April

Good morning Year 2

Hello Year 2,

We hope you are all well and are enjoying time with your families! What is one thing that you are proud of this week? Maybe its that you have been a great team player at home this week, or perhaps its because you have shown lots of resilience at this challenging time. Whatever it is, you should feel really great about yourself, and know that you are doing a great job!

Perhaps you would like to try one of the activities that we shared in yesterdays post, or maybe you have some other activities that you are going to do. Either way we would love to hear about it via our Year 2 email address at year2@stmarksce.org.uk.

Year 2 – Tuesday 14th April – Easter Holiday

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 year2@stmarksce.org.uk, 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.

Many thanks,

The Year 2 Team
