Home Learning Year 2


Welcome back, Year 2!

We hope you have enjoyed the half term break and made the most of the sunshine.  Miss Gadsdon has been enjoying lots of lovely walks with Penny the pup and Miss Purvis spent a day canoeing on the river! We are feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work and we hope that you are too…

We have added a new home learning pack below, as well as reading and spelling activities; more maths activities have also been set for you to complete on MyMaths. We have loved seeing your emails, so please keep on sending them through to us. A new Home Learning Star will be selected this week – could it be you?

A notice for parents and carers: your child’s school report will be emailed out on Monday 1st June – please keep an eye out for this. If you wish to discuss anything, please email us at Y2@northdenes.norfolk.sch.uk
