Extra challenges:- Getting Year 2 Ready


This year year has been a very different one! We have had lots of time off school, we have been unable to see people we love and we have not been able to leave our houses and do things we like to do. Children in a few years will want to know what it was like to live in 2020. Can you help them by thinking about your own memories of this time and the things you have done to keep busy?

Create some art work or use this Time Capsule to help you remember this time!
