Building a Brighter Future

Week Three (20th April)

Hi Year 2,

 

We hope you're all keeping well and happy.  We know you're probably missing your friends, we're missing you all too.  

 

Have you logged on to the School Blog yet?  There's been amazing posts from Dante, Ellie, Razane, Remi, Mimo and Isa.  If you haven't logged in, make sure you find out your login from your parents and take a look.  Then, why not let us know what you've been up to, and how you are.  We'd love to hear from you.

 

Have a great week,

 

From 

Mrs Williams and Mr Bradfield

Reading

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.

PE

Children need regular breaks and exercise. If you have a safe outdoor space please ensure you get some fresh air and exercise. If you do not have an outdoor space try one of the dance or HITT videos below.  Or if you want a half hour children's workout to wake you up, at 9am every weekday try this:

 

 

If you accidentally missed it, you can go back later in the day to watch the video.  No excuses now!
