The Class 2 Superstars...

To all the Class 2 Superstars!!

The summer is finally here and you have nearly completed all your learning tasks - just 1 more week to go!!! All this weeks learning is below this message - just try your best and complete as much as you can. You can still email me on the teachers email or use Twitter so show me all your amazing work. To the children that are working in bubbles - enjoy your last few days with Mr Baker, Mrs Attwood and Ms Collier; they have kept me updated with all the wonderful things you have been doing and I am so proud of how well you have returned to school. To the children that are working at home - you have done an amazing job and I have loved seeing every photo, message and piece of work that you have sent me; thank you they have made me smile so much.


I am beyond proud of every single one of you for how hard you have worked these past few months; I know it has been really tricky at times but you have all been amazing! I have missed you all so much and cannot wait to see you all again in September - I know we will have lots to talk about and lots of stories to share and I am so excited already!!! Have a lovely week and remember I am still here if you need me. Love from Miss Mckeon x
