SCHOOL CLOSURE HOMEWORK
Hi all, we hope you have had a fantastic Easter holiday and you have spent some quality time with your families!
As we are not yet back at school, work will continue to be uploaded onto the web page. If you feel it is necessary to ask a question about any of the set activities please email firstname.lastname@example.org between 9:00 and 3:30pm and Mrs Ross will attempt to support all queries.
Thank you for all the effort you have put in so far, we are so proud of how you are all accepting this new way of learning. We hope to see you in class soon and we miss every one of you!
As we are not able to celebrate VE Day at school, Mr Bagley has created a Art competition for you all enter! Make your design as colourful as you can and show how proud you are of Britain's history. Entries will need to be brought into school when we return. Everyone who enters will receive a special pin badge and the winner picked from Year 2 will win a £20 voucher!
I know you will have have a go and create some fantastic designs. Good luck!
Here are the spelling lists for the Summer Term 1 from Mr Bagley.
Remember to look up the words from each theme so that you learn more than just the spellings. Thank you.
I have also added the National Curriculum spelling link.

|CLASS NEWS THIS WEEK:||
Children are expected to read each night at home and their books should be brought into school each day for extra reading practice. Year 2 children complete a small quiz in school when they have finished their book (any day of the week – just let your class teacher or teaching assistant know when you have finished each book) and will then be able to choose their own new book.
We have already seen some amazing homework taking place, so please continue to build your projects! Also continue to practice spellings, ready for our spelling test on Fridays.
