Welcome to year 2's home learning page
We can't believe it is the last day for you in year 2. 
Parents, we can't thank you enough for all of you hard work and support through this unusual time-perhaps you'll all be looking in the future to have a career in education?...maybe not! 
Children, it's not what we thought your time in year 2 would look like.  We are so proud of each and every one of you for all of your amazing work and positive attitudes.  We can't wait to see you around school in September.
