Building a Brighter Future

Week Seven (13th July)

 

Hello everyone,

 

We all made it to the end of the summer term, at last!  It was such a strange, strange year, one we'll never forget.  

 

The Virtual Annies Ceremony has happened!  Watch it to find out if Year 2 won any awards this year.  

 

This is the last week of home learning, but there is always the Anson Mini Olympics to keep you going over the holidays.  

 

We want to say that we are so proud of all of you, and wish you all a very happy and safe summer and a fabulous time in Year 3.  We wish we could see you in person to say it to your faces!  We look forward to catching up in September.  

 

Scroll down to the Music section for a special musical message from us to you, and to have a go yourself.

Read a book!  A new one, a borrowed one, an old favourite, just read!  Then discuss the book together (see some good questions below).  If you're not sure what a word means, please use a dictionary to find out.

 

If you've read a really good book since school has closed, why not write a book review on our school blog?   Your parents were texted your login.

Weekly focus: Rapunzel

Extra challenge:  Can you write a different version of the story?  Maybe you could change the characters, or the setting or the ending?  Feeling creative?  Why not make your own masks or puppets of the characters?  Could you write a letter of apology from one character to another?  Could you design and make Rapunzel's tower?

Time
