Monday 23rd March

Good morning everyone,

I hope you’re all feeling fit and healthy.

If you haven’t done so already, today could be a good day to create a timetable or make some simple ground rules about how you’re going to learn at home by having a discussion with your child and agreeing what works for both of you. You might give your child some extra responsibilities around the house or create some challenges for them to complete throughout the day.

Every day I will post and English, Maths and Reading activity, linking these to curriculum objectives (the same ones handed out at parents evening). I will also post a new physical challenge and household challenge daily.

During this time, to ensure you can communicate easily with me it is vital you are connected on Class Dojo. If this is not the case, please email admin@baschurch.shropshire.sch.uk referencing Year 2 Class Dojo login and I can send you an invitation directly from the Dojo website for you to set up a login.

All challenges will be posted on this page and on our class Dojo page, however extra videos and pictures to support tasks will only be available on our Dojo page.

Here are today’s tasks and challenges!
