Year 2 Nativity!
Unfortunately, we were not able to put on our usual KS1 Nativity this year. However, we didn't let that stop us from making a COVID-19 safe version! Please take a peek at our Y2 Nativities linked below:
No bubbles were mixed during the making of these videos. All costumes were quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours between filming, and all rules from the school risk assessment were followed very carefully.
Remember - Year 2 have P.E. and Dance on a Wednesday. Please make sure your child comes into school in their P.E. kit on this day!
Unfortunately, we are unable to send home any reading books at the moment. We will be assigning reading books online using Seesaw and the Oxford Owl website.
Here are the Oxford Owl log in details for year 2:

For home learning and for those who are isolating we will be using the platform Seesaw. Login details have been sent home.
Each week Maths, Phonics and Topic homework will be added for your child to complete.
To support you with accessing the platform, we have attached a user guide for families. You can also access a video all about Seesaw at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9FyB1SCbeM (note it is now called Seesaw Class not Seesaw Learning journal as noted in the video) and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1_mBy1EI0M We appreciate that everyone is still adapting to this new way of learning.
