Year 2 Home Learning
The resources published on this page are intended to support you and your child in continuing their learning in the event of them having to self-isolate due to COVID-19. These are for those individuals self-isolating in line with Test and Trace guidance (either they have symptoms/tested positive for covid-19 or someone in the household has symptoms/tested positive for covid-19), and initially for those self-isolating due to a school 'bubble' closure, but in the event of this school will send further information about home learning.
A member of staff will contact you during the working week to see if there is any further support required, but please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone or email and we will do all we can to help you as soon as we can.
