Home Learning during Lockdown
Starting the week beginning 11th January activities will be put on the Seesaw learning platform and produced as a paper pack weekly. You can collect your paper pack from school each week on a Friday - our timeslot for collection is 2.15 - 2.40. Children can then either upload a picture/evidence of their work for teachers to look at and respond to through Seesaw or return work on a Friday when you collect work for the following week.
Welcome to Year 2!
