Year 2

Hello from Mr Murphy and Mrs Boland
 
We hope that you are all well and behaving yourselves at home for your families.
 
We have uploaded some good websites for your parents to explore with you and some non-screen time links.
 
All take care and we hope to see you all soon.

With all the concerns over the Coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during any potential school closures.

We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.

 
Please find below some learning websites which you can access while your child is off school.
 
Keep well,keep safe and keep reading!
