In Year 2, children will receive either a piece of literacy or maths homework that will be posted on Seesaw every Friday. This work will be expected in on the following Friday. You can find your child's login detail at the back of their reading diaries. If there are any quieries about how to access seesaw using these codes, please do not hesitate to ask me at the start or end of the school day. 

Children will also be given one project per half term that will be linked to their class topic. The children will be given all half term to complete their projects and a date will be set in the last week of term when these are due in.
