Good morning everyone!Thank you for your emails yesterday. I will be responding later today! Don't think I've forgotten!
***Our weekly Zoom meeting will be at 10am this morning. Details are under my blog (from yesterday.) We hope you can join us!
As we are reminding ourselves during Children's Mental Health Awareness Week to be creative and engage in activities that make us happy and enable us to express ourselves, we will start and indeed continue throughout our Zoom meeting with a musical and creative theme. Have your masks ready if you would like to channel your inner African tribal vibe and bring your musical instruments along. Don't forget your dancing legs too! Remember, homemade instruments will be just as good. In a couple of minutes I’ll explain what I'd like you to practice and have ready for our meeting.

A Chance to reflect on the life of Captain Sir Tom
I think that many of you will have heard of Captain Sir Tom; the 100 year old man who raised so much money for the NHS.
Sadly he died on Tuesday, but his family will be so proud of all that he achieved and Captain Tom will be smiling down on them from heaven, I am sure. During this week when we think about ways to feel happy and lift our selves up when we feel down, I wonder what message we can take from Captain Sir Tom. Enjoy the PowerPoint below and share with someone in your family what you admire most about what Captain Tom said and did.
I think you will have been quite busy this morning. If you have any time left, you might like to complete your fact sheet about the animal you painted or made yesterday. I've not yet looked at my emails; so I will share any photographs tomorrow after we have had a chance to share at our Zoom meeting.
Our Maths Learning
Year 2 Maths
Today we are learning about odd and even numbers. Think of them as counting in pairs; in 2's. Like counting in pairs of shoes. We need 2 of each to have a pair. If there is one left out then that's an odd one so its an odd one out. Once you see the pattern you will always remember it!
