Holy Trinity CofE Primary School

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 2

To my SUPERSTAR Squirrels, the BRILLIANT Badgers, parents and carers

Year 2 seems extra empty this morning without your smiling faces and energetic energy. We want you all to know how proud we are of the way you’ve behaved and kept smiling through these strange times last week, and we know that you will continue to do so at home as well.

 

Today, home learning packs will be made available to you. These are filled with a variety of English, maths and foundation based activities to keep you going to the Easter holidays. Please be aware that the packs are optional and there is no expectation that they will be completed. It is important that the children still have their normal Easter holidays as they have worked incredibly hard and will need a break to reset. Movement and exercise are important and we hope that you will encourage the children to be as active as possible in these uncertain times. There are some good websites on the pack to support fitness (among other activities as well) if you are looking for any ideas to help with this. If you feel you would like an alternative activity for the whole family to participate in then we suggest activities such as playing a family board or card game, charades, cookery or drawing and colouring activities as a family.

 

These are stressful times and we urge you to find the way that works best for you and your family. You might want to stick to a rough timetable and so below is the one we will be following in school:

12pm lunch and break

1pm Activity 1: Project work

Don’t forget to use all of those letter writing skills to stay in contact with each other. Post them, email them or deliver them if you can. It’s a great way to practise your communication skills and keep up to date with your friends. You could also keep a diary of everything you are doing- just like Samuel Pepys did!

 

Mainly, our hope is that you all remain happy and healthy during these times. We know that you’ll continue to be your normal superstar selves and we hope to see you back in school soon!

Take care!
