Welcome to all the lovely children in Year 2
School seems so strange and quiet without you. Hope you are settling into your new routine and enjoying the sunshine. There are lots of activities for you to do and I hope you have fun doing them. Please continue with your life cycle project – I can’t wait to see them all.
Miss W and I miss you and hope to see you all soon. Mrs B

Other resources and ideas
There are plenty of science things to do at home. Take a look at some of these websites and ask your adults to use #ScienceFromHome on social media for more ideas and inspiration. You’ll be please to hear the mould experiments are coming along nicely and I will post a video soon.
