Facebook link for home learning
Can children or parents add the following groups on Facebook:
Holy Family Catholic Primary School Parent Information Page AND
Year 2 Holy Family.
The first page is a whole school Facebook page where staff will share announcements, links to work and resources and share ideas to do at home.
The second page is for Year 2 children where work can be shared and celebrated. Mrs Curran and I can help the children with their work if needed and award Class Dojos for effort and work produced.
I look forward to seeing your amazing work!!

Year 2 took part in the Quad kids event held at the Doncaster Athletic stadium. They began by warming up their muscles in a fun warm up. Then they took part in a 200m run, a 50m run, the tennis ball throw and the standing long jump against other schools in our area. Even though the weather was cold, we all had a great time!
We are currently reading George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl together every morning, unpicking the vocabulary and answering questions on the text. Also, we are reading The Ice Monster by David Walliams which links to our topic The Stone Age. We love reading!
Children need a reading book in school each day, they are also expected to read at home every day in order to improve fluency and accuracy. Books are closely matched to their reading ability and will be changed as they improve and can answer comprehension questions about the text.
As part of Judaism week, we held a Mitzvah Day. Mitzvah is a Hebrew word which means 'deed'. The idea is to give up some of your time to help people in the community. We talked about the people in our local community who had suffered in the recent floods. We collected items to help them and wrote prayer and made cards to send to them to show them we care and that they are part of our school family.
Mitzvah Day 2019
PE Day is Thursday - please make sure you bring the correct kit (white top, dark shorts and indoor shoes in the Winter term). Please make sure any earrings can be removed or are not worn on PE days.
