Online Safety
Dear parents and carers,
 
You have been emailed an attachment and link about online safety so please check your emails for these. Just in case you can't access them through the email, they are here too.
It gives some guidance and insight into some of the usual as well as latest apps and websites and the dangers they pose for children and tips on keeping them safe.  This is especially important at present where we are expecting children to access online learning but this may not be supervised all the time.

 

Please check back here weekly. Miss Morris and Miss Carlin will be setting work for all of Team 2! 

.

Have a look at the 'Maths is Everywhere' resources below for some fun outdoor maths learning and games.

The children across the school have  been introduced to a new scheme to enable them to develop their Personal, Social, Health and Emotional education.  We had only had a few weeks before the school closed but the children are really engaged and enthused by the content.  Holwell school is able to provide the following link for you to continue to explore this.  You may find some elements of this useful particularly in this time of uncertainty.

In Year 2, our puzzle piece was the pink one and their name is JO.
