Computing home learning:

Hi year 2!

This week I would like you to think about where you would love to go right now if you could go anywhere. Then, using a computer, phone or tablet, visit and choose a background to use. Write a sentence to say what it would be like there. Watch the video I have made on youtube and have fun creating your own sentences!
