I cannot believe we have reached the last week of the summer term. There’s no deny it has been a strange year, but I’m sure we have all recently enjoyed spending time with our families and learning new skills. One thing that has been really lovely over the past few weeks, has been seeing all your faces on our Google Meets sessions. You have all been so well behaved, polite and engaged, you have dressed up as pirates and brought along some of the amazing things you have made for show and tell.

Just before we sign off for the summer, all the year 2 team wanted to say a massive well done to everyone who has worked hard doing home learning and engaging with school. We have loved reading your emails, looking at your photos and even watching your videos. It has been a pleasure watching you all learn lots at home, create amazing art pieces and watching you all grow and learn new things!
We hope you all have a lovely, relaxing summer and we wish you all the best for year 3. I’m sure your teachers will be pop up to your new class in September to say a long awaited hello!
Take care year 2!
