Lockdown 2.0 

05/01/2021

 

Hello people of year 2. As I am sure you are all aware, we have entered a second lockdown and our school is shut to most pupils. However, work will be posted daily along with some live lessons starring Mr Redmond and Mrs Sorvel. For this week (6th-8th of January) there is work on the homework section of the website. If you could please send work back via the website that would be great. 

It is also vital that children still access reading materials daily. Please ensure your child uses bug club everyday as obviously we cannot send books home in the current circumstances. If your child finsihes all of their books or is struggling with their username/password please let me know.

In the meantime please feel free to get in touch with me if there is anything you are worried about via my email year2covid19@outlook.com. 

We also have a class twitter page- @stjohnfisher_y2 where parents can post pictures and messages of their children doing some work, exercises or anything else you think it might be good for other parents and kids to see. 

Enjoy this time with your children, I really hope home learning goes well for you. 

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. 

Mr Redmond and Mrs Sorvel
