We developed our mark making skills and learnt how to insert lines and shapes and how to fill with colour.
LEARNING IN YEAR 2
Mental well being is at the forefront of everything we do at Banwell and it is essential that the children understand the importance of it too! Below are some links that you might like to access at home that are good for the well being areas we use at school which are; keep active, keep learning, connect, be creative, and take notice.
