Dear Year 2,

We have given you lots of different pieces of work to do while you are at home.  The work we have given you is a selection of all of the things that we have done in Year 2 so far.  Don’t worry if there is something that you can ‘t do, or that you don’t understand, you can ask anyone who is at home with you to help and if you still don’t understand we will sort it out when you get back to school.

We will keep setting different work for you, and you will be able to find this on the school website.  There are also lots of extra things in your pack that you may be able to do by yourself, but if you don’t get time to do it all that’s fine.  We have also given you a list of lots of websites you might like to use to help you with your learning.

While you aren’t at school enjoy your time with your family, do as many things as you can that you really enjoy.  Play board games, play in the garden, watch a film together, do some baking, read your favourite books but most importantly take care of each other. 

We will see you all very soon.
