Welcome to our Year 2 home learning page!

Accessing home learning may feel strange at first but we have made lots of activities to keep you busy! The activities for each day are below and have explanations/videos to go with them. 

 Every morning at 9am, Mr Oates and Mrs Atkinson will be hosting a morning greet on Microsoft Teams. This will give you all a chance to say hello to your friends, to us and we will talk about your activities for the day! 

We will also be reading a live story at 3pm for you to interact with and also gives you the chance to talk about the work you have completed that day.

It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible on these meetings but please don't worry if you are not able to access it. As long as you have a go at the work set out on the website, then you are doing a great job.

 Throughout the day, you can contact your teacher via Tapestry or via email. Please do get in contact if you are struggling with work and we'll be happy to help you. We'd also love to see your completed work and provide you with some feedback, so please send this to us too by uploading it onto Tapestry! 

 We look forward to seeing and speaking to you. We know that you will be just as amazing during these strange times as you have been since we returned to school in September. You are all absolute superstars and we have no doubt that you will try your very best, as you always do.

Stay safe, 

Mr Oates and Mrs Atkinson
