Year 2 2020 - 2021
Welcome to the Year 2 home learning page!
A goodbye message...
It has been so wonderful to see most of you over the last two days. I am so glad we have spent some time together before you move into the Juniors! You have been a wonderful class to teach and I will really miss you next year. I hope you all have a fun, safe summer full of amazing activties! You are all superstars.
Parents, thank you for all your support during these difficult times. Your kind words, messages and generosity, especially as we come to the end of term, has been overwhelming. This has been a difficult and confusing time for us all but with your support, it made it that little bit easier. Thank you again.
Enjoy your summer!
Love Miss Tandy xxxx

Message from Mrs Croft SENCO
We appreciate this is a challenging time, I wanted to share this quote that has been circulating between schools. If after one day of home learning, you are wondering how you’ll get through the next few weeks read this, take a break, then start again tomorrow!
‘Arguing with your kids to do work is not what anyone needs right now. Instead, cuddle up together and read, read, read. Take turns reading. Read them your favourite novel (yes, you can read novels to small children). Do a puzzle. Build a fort. Bake. Watch TV together. Paint. Get out the lego and build together. Set up a tent in your living room and camp out. Look at photos of when you were a kid. In other words… Don’t stress about them forgetting. Don’t stress about home schooling them. Just spend time together. Your kids won’t learn much if they’re feeling stressed. Though this is a scary time, it could very well be a time they remember as the best time in their life.’
If you are feeling anxious, or would just like tips on relaxation for yourself and your child, download the smiling mind app. It’s great to do with the whole family. I use it when I can’t sleep. There are programs for different ages. It’s great! I have also put a list of charities and helpline phone numbers on my SENCO page. Stay safe and well.
