Y2 Home Learning Tuesday 23.2.21

Here is the Y2 Home Learning for Tuesday 23.2.21

We are incredibly proud of our children and how well they have taken to the live lessons. As we embark on another term, we would like to share a few reminders to keep the children safe, and to make the most of the learning. Please remind your children to keep their microphone muted (unless told to do otherwise) and to keep the camera on at all times (unless told to do otherwise). Please ensure that anyone who might get caught by the camera is  appropriately dressed (all covered up) and that the children are prepared to learn with a pen/ pencil and a piece of paper/ exercise book.
