Your reading task this week is to continue to listen to Audiobooks and discuss them with someone else in your family.

This week we are continuing to listen to Kid Normal. There are still quite a few chapters left so you might want to listen to two chapters today. 

Remember to talk about what has happened in the story with somebody at home.




Today we will be learning all about the incredible adventures of Sir Ernest Shackleton.

He wanted to be the first man to reach the South Pole. Sadly, after 4 attempts to get there, he never made it.

During this lesson, we look back at the heroic journey Shackleton and his team took, trying to reach the South Pole.

This week we are still working on our exciting project at St John the Divine. 

This is to put together an online choir performance of the children from different year groups.

Mr Postles has put a new Blog on the Music page about this.  You can access the Music Blog from the same place you access this page every day of use this link below to go straight there: 




In order to make this happen, all you need to do is to record the child singing along to one (or all three!) of the songs chosen for this project. There are a few things we need to get right, so please refer to the information on the blog!

To see Mr Postles explain the information in a video, please follow this link: 




I hope you all enjoy the work that has been set for you today.

Remember that you can always email me any questions at admin@sjtdprimary.org.uk showing ‘Year 2’ in the title.

Have a good day!
