Good morning year 2!
If you go onto Mr Burrows section of the home learning you will see a little surprise that all of the Dawpool staff have been working on to bring a smile to your face and to allow all of you to see us all when we have all been apart for so long.
We hope that you enjoy it! We all certainly had fun filming it all for you guys xx
Thank you very much to Ben, James, Evie and Jasmine for your emails yesterday.
Ben and Evie your healthy picnics looked lovely and James and Jasmine, we have loved your lovely emails of how you are getting on. Your emails really do cheer us up and we love getting pictures of your happy smily faces. It is nice for us to share them on here so that your friends can see you too so please all keep it up.
Stay smiling everyone!! 
Speak to you tomorrow,
Mrs Broadbent xx
For any parents who would like it or feel that it is necessary, I have also uploaded a healthy eating certificate. This can be used to celebrate any other healthy lunches that your children make or maybe you might feel that they just need a little boost after working hard in their science lesson today.

Good morning everyone!
First of all I would just like to say that I have loved seeing the photographs that you guys have sent in of your science lesson heart rate activities!
I am so pleased that you have all had so much fun doing the activities and I love that lots of brothers and sisters have joined in to! It has also been lovely to see that some of you have thought of your own heart beat activities. Well done children and well done to the Mum's and Dad's who were able to get this all set up for me. I hope you enjoyed it too! (even if that meant that the enjoyment was from your children being slightly more tired out and quiet after the science lesson compared to normal!)
The ICT will need quite a bit of concentration today. I personally think that coding is one of our slightly more tricky topics in ICT but i think the children will hugely benefit from being able to do this unit at home as they will face less problems with the technology than what we do when we all try and log on and do this together. The unit plans that I have uploaded are really useful for doing these lessons. This is usually children favourite unit so I hope that you all enjoy it.
Have a great day, speak to you guys tomorrow,
lots of love,
Mrs Broadbent xx
Oh one other thing!!
I received a very exciting email from Mr Burrows this morning about a whole school challenge!
I think it is such a lovely idea and myself, Mrs McCann and Mrs Cutts would absolutely love year two to be involved! 
To find out more information go onto the home learning page and instead of clicking on the year 2 link, click on the link called 'Looking to the Rainbow'.
I think you guys are going to love this! All the details of how to take part are all on the 'Looking to the Rainbow' link. Please go and have a look.

Good morning year 2! 

There is an error on page 28 of today’s maths slide. 
I have been trying to change it but had a few little problems with the PowerPoint this morning. 
So I will set it as a challenge to you instead. Can you spot which of the answers on page 28 is incorrect? 
hope you all have a lovely day today.
love from Mrs Broadbent xx
