Week commencing 07/09/2020

Year 2 have had a fantastic first week in Year 2. They have massively impressed Miss Byron with their ukulele skills and she thinks she will soon have 30 musicians on her hands! The children have worked extremely hard this week, focusing on their own wellbeing, and ensuring their confidence and enjoyment of returning to school was at its highest. They have been completing wonderful artwork as well as writing numbers in words up to 50 and practicing their handwriting daily. All the children should be extremely proud of how sensible they have started Year 2 and are terrific role models to the younger children. Keep it up Year 2!!
