Y2- Home Learning 1/3/21

Y2- Here is the home learning for Monday 1st March 2021

Monday 1.3.21  

Thursday 4th March is World Book Day! If your child would like to dress up as a favourite book character for the live lesson on Thursday, they are more than welcome to, but there is no expectation that children do this. Please see the World Book Day blog (posted before Half Term) for more information about World Book Day. We are particularly excited about the potato book characters and  hearing about the children’s favourite books, in whatever way they would like to share them.  

Ideas for the potato book character can be found here: 

If you have done any World Book Day activities and your child would like to share them with their peers during the live lesson on Thursday, please either email them to your child’s teacher prior to the lesson or remind your child to have it with them during the live lesson. We will spend a large proportion of the live lesson on Thursday celebrating all things to do with World Book Day. 

If you would like any photos related to World Book Day to be shared on the website, please email them, with permission, to your child’s class teacher by the end of the school day on Friday 5th March.
