Year 2 Home Learning

Dear Chipmunks and Ladybirds, 

We are sorry that we can't finish the term with you all at school. Here are some links to websites and activities to keep you busy over the next few weeks. Remember to stretch your brain muscles in lots of different ways including getting active, being imaginative with your toys, being creative with junk and playing games with your family. We'd love to hear about what you get up to or even see some photos.

You can contact us here : year2@dovecote.school

Have fun learning and stay safe.

From all the Year 2 staff.
