Welcome back to Term 6!  We are really excited that we will be seeing the Year 1 children soon and hope that our term will run as smoothly as possible under the circumstances. We will continue to post work for Year 2 children on our class web page and look forward to seeing the Year 2 work on Seesaw as before. 

Please can we remind you that we cannot operate our usual "open door" policy at present, but that we are very happy to answer questions via email or phone.

Home Learning

We understand that this is an unsettling time and we hope having access to these ideas may help you create a sense of routine and support your child’s learning. Equally we are aware that people have caring commitments and that every family will be doing their best day by day and as such, not every activity may be completed.

 

If you would like to use them at home our usual prayers can be found here: 

Morning Prayer 

Lunchtime Prayer 

End of the Day Prayer
