How many different ways have you been 'shining brightly' this week? 

(Last week's slideshow hasn't disappeared, it is now at the bottom of this page!)

Good Morning Year 2 - It's Thoughtful Thursday!

This week we have been thinking about acts of kindness and many of you will have added them to your kindness jar. See if you can carry out an act of kindness for each member of your household including any pets you have. Maybe you will help do some chores, say something kind to someone or show your family you care for them with a big hug! 

We hope you've had a good start to the week and you are looking forward to meeting your new teachers on Zoom as much as we know they are looking forward to meeting you. Maybe you could think of a question you would like to ask them about what it is like in Year 3. 

This is the last week you will have to access Mathletics, TTRS and Steps to Summit. We have set new Mathletics activities so see if you can complete at least one of these.

Keep in touch with your teachers and let us know how you get on. We're available via email if you need us. We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Stay safe and keep shining brightly!
