Home Learning Activities - Week beginning 13.07.20

What a very strange Summer Term this has been!  Can you believe we are now in the final week? I know some of you will be working at home while others will be joining me back in school on Monday.  I am so looking forward to seeing you!  The classroom looks very different but it is still our special place even if it is for just one more week....

This week, as well setting Home Learning activities, I have also provided some useful links that will support those basic skills over the Summer holidays. These are voluntary activities and are there for you only if you would like to do them!

Please continue to read a book, complete a Maths, English and Spelling task every day then try an activity from the list below. This week's recipe is Muffin Tray tortilla pizzas!

Please keep sending in photos of the work you are proud of to: office.springgrove@kirkleeseducation.uk

Thank you Year 2 for sending in photos of the work you have been doing at home.  This is the final gallery of the year. I hope you enjoy looking at all of the photos!
