Dear Year 2,
Transition to Year 3
This week in school we would have been enjoying our Transition Day, a chance to be in our new year groups with our new teachers. We cannot do that in person but here is the PowerPoint to support your home learning activities around the transition. Please don’t forget to bring your completed learning booklet back to school in September for your new teacher.
