Good morning Year 2, I hope you are all well and enjoying your week!
I am so impressed with all the work that you are sending in, you did a fantastic job finding all the vocabulary in yesterday's English lesson and showed a super understanding of pictograms in Maths! Today, in Maths, we have another lesson on pictograms using our times tables and counting skills. In English, I would like you to list lots of exciting vocabulary to describe the Great Fire of London and finally in Music, you are going to pretend that you are the DJ hosting a Year 2 party! Thank you for working so hard, I miss you all lots! Keep smiling and have a lovely day
