Hello Year 2,

I hope you’ve had a good weekend. I have sent your parents an invitation to join class dojo via their phone. Please ask them to accept it. Later on today I will add dojos for work over Christmas, being Lockdown Legends and all the fabulous work from last week. See how many you have!

Below you will find your home learning tasks for today. Once you completed them, you can send them to me using the Year 2 Blogs on Purple Mash.

To find the blogs go to Purple Mash and click on the green globe icon at the top that says sharing. When you click on that you will see a tab called Shared Blogs. Click on that and then you will see 3 blogs-one for English, one for Maths and one for Topic.

When you are in the blog, click on the green box with the + sign. This will give you a post to type into with title box, summary and content sections.

You can type answers into the content section or you can take a photo of your work and attach it using the icon that looks like a picture with a paper clip. I will then be able to see all of your wonderful learning. You can also ask me questions if you are unsure about any of your work. Remember to save!

Challenge-see if you can start your sentences in different ways.
