Year 2

Hello Year Two

Hello Little Ladies and Gents,

How are you all? I hope that you are all enjoying your home learning tasks! I am trying my best to set nice things for you to do each day! I hope that you are all managing to do lots of reading as you know how much Mrs Winstanley loves reading!  I am missing you all lots and lots but Archie and Albie are keeping me very busy!

Albie’s Adventures- Well this weekend Albie has been making us all laugh with his funny voices and the things he says! He keeps saying to ‘Bot, bot Mum, go get one, Good girl’ and we all know that he’s not supposed to have a bottle now! Then when I bring him what he wants, he has started to answer with ‘Thanks Love’ I don’t know where he gets it from!

Keep smiling everyone!

______________________________________________________________________

Prayer

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the beautiful weather that we have had this week! Thank you for the sunshine to brighten up our days and make us smile.  Thank you for the amazing workers that are looking after everybody and keeping them safe and thank you for our families that are looking after us and keeping us safe and happy!

Amen.
