Good Morning Year 2

Today is Thursday 30th April, 2020


How was the apostrophe hunt?  Did you find any?  Do I need an apostrophe in this sentence? Sophias dog is very cute.  Beatrices crystals are very precious.  I dont know!  You will probably be able to help some of the adults in your house with their punctuation now!


Joke of the Day!

Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me.
