Hello Year Two,
I want to start by saying a BIG THANK YOU to all of you for the wonderful picture, it brighten up my Saturday evening. Mrs Martin, Mrs F and I loved it! I can't believe how grown up you all look. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart and I will treasure that photo forever.
I have loved reading and seeing all your fantastic work this week especially your Under The Sea stories and as always have loved talking to you on the phone.
This week is half term so I will not be setting any work, if you wish to continue working then you can either complete the pack I have uploaded or the Talk 4 Writing pack. I will also not be phoning this week but if you have any questions feel free to email me at email@example.com.
I am really missing you all but I wanted to say that I think you (and your parents) are all doing a wonderful job at home. Keep up the hard work and you all continue to make me the proudest teacher EVER!
Have a wonderful week and safe safe.
