Hi Year 2,

Well done for the work you completed last week. I know working from home can be tricky at times but I want you to know you are all doing fabulously (parents included!). 

Only one more week to go before half term - keep up the motivation just a little longer. I am available to ring you this week so I look forward to saying hello!

Take care and speak soon,

Mrs Finch

Hello Year 2!

It was lovely to speak to you this week. I enjoyed hearing about the fantastic learning you have been doing as well as some of the exciting activities you have been up to outside the house. The work you have sent in this week has been wonderful.  I think it's safe to say we now have continent and ocean experts in the class - well done! 

I hope you enjoy the learning for the week ahead. Remember to always try your best. 

Take care and keep up the hard work. 

Mrs Finch

Hello everyone.

As you have heard from Mrs Wade many of the children will be accessing home learning materials for the immediate future. Our Topic this half term is ‘The Great Fire of London’. Please see below the attached Topic Web, learning activities and links for this week.

Please encourage your child to continue to practise their spellings, handwriting and phonics.

In Maths the children will continue to work on ‘money’. This was our focus before the Christmas holidays so it will be a great way to consolidate and build upon their existing knowledge. On a Friday the children will start work on 'data handling' with Mrs Tunstall.

Our Guided Reading text which we will be working from is ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’.

Please do stay in touch and email jenny.finch@ksps.cumbria.sch.uk with copies of your child’s work or if you have any questions. Mrs Tunstall will be available on a Friday claire.tunstall@ksps.cumbria.sch.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Finch
