Montgomerie Primary School

Every Second Counts

Welcome to Year 2 Summer term

A very different term indeed!

What a strange situation we all find ourselves in! Staying at home and home learning! The most important thing is looking after yourselves and staying safe. Doing some school work at home each day will really help to keep your brain working and also help to keep you busy. You can do this by practising the skills you've already learnt and using online resources such as Spelling Shed, Mathletics, Times Tables Rockstars and Purple Mash. Also, I will be uploading a daily timetable on Google Classroom with a range of tasks. I would love to see your work and how you are getting on so please share it on Google Classroom.

 It is really important to make sure that you take breaks during the day and go outside for some fresh air and exercise too.

Try to keep up your reading routine of reading 5 times a week. You can access online books at the websites below:
