Year 2

Mrs Taylor

 

Welcome to our class page. While school is closed, we still want to stay in touch. We will use this page for information about learning you can complete at home, suggestions of activities and games and to share photos.

While you are at home, one of the most important things you can do is read, read and read again!

 

 

Talking of reading...You have now read 1100 books on getepic. Fantastic reading!

It was lovely to see so many of you on our final zoom this week. We loved seeing some of your amazing dance moves. Have a fantastic summer!
