Year 2

School Closure Extension (12th June 2020)

School Closure Extension (6th June 2020)

Welcome to Year 2!



Dear parents and carers,


We hope that you are all still safe and well.  As lockdown continues for most children, remote learning conditions still apply and therefore, each week, class teachers will be putting a learning grid onto the class pages of the website.  Children are encouraged to have a go at the blue sections every day, and the sections in yellow are suggestions of extra projects that children could undertake if they / you choose to. 


In these challenging times, children’s happiness, wellbeing and safety are paramount and the most important aspects of day-to-day life.  Although we are uploading ideas to the website, there are no definitive expectations of what you must do or not. If you are able to support your children with their learning at home, then great! We appreciate  that it may be difficult for some families to support their children in home-learning so please do not feel any pressure for children to complete these tasks if your circumstances are such that it is not possible – do as much or as little as you see fit.  There is also nothing wrong with playing games, baking, having fun and enjoying life!


Please email school if you have any further questions or need any support and guidance.  We would also love to see photos of any home-learning that children have completed in order to celebrate these on the school website and on twitter too (@HMCPS).


Thank you for all of your continued support.  Look after yourselves and stay safe!
