Thank you for continuing to send in photographs of your children working hard at home. It's wonderful to see their beautiful faces and we enjoy reading about how the children have been keeping busy.
After speaking to Callum last week, I have decided to set an extra home learning activity this week. Callum and his brother Olly have been litter picking on their family walks as they were not happy about the amount of rubbish in the local area. I am asking all children to please make an informative poster or leaflet which outlines the problem with dropping litter and suggests ways in which we can solve the problem. If possible, please take a photo and send it to me via email and I will choose my favourites next week.
I have also set up a boys v girls battle on TT Rockstars so make sure you log on and have a go at winning the times table battle.
I have uploaded this weeks video message onto the website for you to view. Mrs Thurman and I will be phoning you all this week to hear your news.
Take care and stay safe,

As we reach the end of another week of home schooling I just wanted to say thank you once again for your support with home learning. So many of you have sent me photographs and emails with work attached. It's really heart warming to see how hard the children are working at home, despite the challenges this brings. Just a reminder, your child should be completing the tasks set on Purple Mash and saving the work so that it can be checked by a teacher. They should also be going on the internet to complete the daily lessons for Year 2 on BBC Bitesize. The lessons include videos, games and tasks, as well as links to other resources which will support and enhance the learning. Please ensure that your child completes at least one of the three activities that is included in the daily lesson, this can be in their blue book. Whilst I would like the children to complete the maths and English lesson each day, I would also encourage them to choose lessons from other curriculum areas. The lessons are approximately twenty minutes long and are designed to be fun and are easy to follow. Please read through the activities with your child to ensure that they understand the task.
I will be posting a new video update on Monday, please use the link below to view this.
Finally, I hope you all have a lovely, restful weekend. Stay safe and please tell your children that Mrs Thurman, Mrs Pickbourne and myself cannot wait to see them again soon.
