Good morning Year 2! It’s a very wet day today, which is a bit disappointing isn’t it. Luckily we’ve had some good days of sunshine so I hope you were able to get outside for some exercise and fun in the garden this week.
As I’ve been in Reception recently at school, I have been lucky enough to see some of you when you drop your siblings off at the gate and this week I have started to notice something! I saw 3 children from Ennis class and one thing was the same…you have all grown! Suddenly you look really tall and it got me thinking. It’s been 3 months since we were last at school together and it seems that a lot can happen in 3 months. Do you think anything about you has changed over these last 3 months? One thing that has changed about me, is that my hair is very, very long and in the next few days, I will have a new pair of glasses. My hair has grown so much, I definitely need a haircut now!
Can you tell me something that has changed about you, since I last saw you? Maybe you’ve lost a tooth, or cut your hair, read a whole book by yourself, or learnt to ride your bike. I love celebrating all of your successes in Ennis class, so I hope that we can share them virtually now. Let me know what’s changed about you and I’ll share them here tomorrow.
I read this story to Reception yesterday, so I wanted to share it with you too. It’s called ‘While we can’t hug’ and is a lovely story about a Hedgehog and a Tortoise. I hope you enjoy listening to this story. I’m sure you will enjoy some of the inventive ways the characters make each other smile.
Today, The Duchess of Cambridge is delivering an assembly at 11am through The Oak National Academy. It would be wonderful if you could join in and watch, as this is such a special thing to happen for children like you. It can be watched live at 11 on this link, or accessed here afterwards if you cannot see it at 11. https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/
I hope that you have a lovely day today, despite the wet rain and I’m looking forward to replying to your emails later with your work.
