Welcome to Year 2
Supported by Mrs Frederick and Mrs Hartley
Online Reading Library
Oak National Academy are working with the National Literacy Trust to launch a new online library for pupils. The Virtual School Library hosts free reading and writing content from children’s authors, providing a free-to-access book every week from the platform’s author of the week. This week’s author is Jacqueline Wilson.
A great way to keep children reading at home!

We will start the term by continuing the Christmas story with the visit of the three wise men and Mary, Joseph and Jesus’ flight to Egypt.
