‘Growing in love, in the spirit of Christ, for the benefit of all’

Week beginning 23.3.20

Good morning Year 2, 


Everyday home learning tasks will appear below this paragraph with links or documents to the work to be completed. 

There will be a daily English, Phonics and Maths task with an additional activity to complete. 

Alongside the daily tasks there are lots of online resources to use too.

Everyday Joe Wicks is doing a PE session so watch the video and keep active!


Please keep reading, read as much as you can! I would love to hear what books you have been reading so send me an email to and we can share our books with everyone in Year 2! 


As a school, we are looking to collect some special prayers for those who are suffering during this difficult time and for those people who are working really hard to keep us safe. If you would like to write one and share it with our school community, please email it to I know that some of you have already done this – thank you!

Take care of yourselves and let me know if there's anything you need.

Best wishes, 

Miss Egerton
