Year Two

Dear families,
This has been a really tough couple of weeks for everyone. It is incredible to think that only a week or so ago we were having an amazing science day, our baby chicks were hatching and life seemed normal. There was excitement in the air at all the fantastic events we were doing. Nobody could have anticipated that school would have to close on Friday 20th March due to Covid19. Nobody could have anticipated the extent of this worldwide virus. 
I can't make this better but I hope I can make things easier. All of year 2 have received their home learning packs and I have also added it to the Year 2 section of the website incase of unforeseen coffee spillages! All I can say is I am here to help in any way I can. My email address is on the home learning pack and I am available to answer any questions. 
Every single person at Amble First has rallied together to ensure this all goes as smoothly as possible: pupils, parents, governors and staff and I am sure together we can ensure that your child goes from strength to strength in their learning. The learning of the children might look very different at the moment but they are still learning. Children are like sponges and just by talking to an adult they are learning something new. They amaze me everyday and we will do everything we can to ensure their learning goes from strength to strength while doing home learning and on our return to school. 
In year 2, we have been studying the Great Fire of London. Perhaps in years to come children will be studying the events of 2020. It would be incredible if your children could keep a diary. They could look back on it in years to come and remember the strange events of this spring. 
My heartfelt best wishes to you all during these tricky times and please get in touch if I can help in any way. I will be adding a daily written message to the children on School360 and if you look at the scores section of MyMaths I will add learning feedback on there. If anything else would be useful please let me know.
