Assalamu’alaikum and welcome to all Year 2  children and parents for this academic year!

Assalamu alaykum!

I hope you are all safe and sound during these uncertain times. Despite the challenges, the children have continued to work hard online and participate in practical activities. The learning has adapted to suit the needs of the children. However, the children are looking forward to going back to school and working with their adults. In the meantime,  please read below for information concerning the upcoming term as there are slight changes to the curriculum and timetable until the children go back to school.  The Year 2 Timetable is under the Online Learning Tab. I am looking forward to seeing your children face to face again.

If there are any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to come and speak to me. Thank you for your ongoing support in your children’s learning, especially during these challenging circumstances.
