Year 2

Week beginning 13/6/20

THE FINAL WEEK!

It is hard to believe it but this is our last week before we officially start our summer break! This will be especially strange for the children who have not been into school at all since we went into lock down.

We have left the games from last week and the week before that on Studyladder. If you have not finished these, please try and use some time this week to complete these.

There is a PHUNKY FOODS folder on the home learning page with lots of healthy food, fitness and mind work. There are 12 sessions/packs, so a great time to start in the summer holidays!

 

We are very proud of all of you whether you have been in school or have done all your learning at home. We hope you have a super summer holiday and we are really looking forward to seeing you back in class in September.

Take care of each other, be good and stay safe!

Love from Mrs Rothery and Mrs Lawson.

Time for Sport's Day! That's right, Sport's Day! We can't have it in school so see if you can do it at home with your family.

Week Beginning 6th July 2020

Hello again Year 2.

We hope you are all well and that those of you who are not in school are working hard at home. Jenson Corrie continues to amaze us each week. Check out his pictures in the gallery!

                **************** IMPORTANT MESSAGE ***********************

We have moved to a learning programme called 'Study Ladder' as of Monday (20.4.20). You should have got some information sent to you about this and your child's login details. We are setting daily activities for the whole week, that are a mix of Maths, reading, phonics/spelling and either an art, music, science or ICT based activity to complete every day (some are two activities if one is a video tutorial).  When your child logs on, if the activities don't come up automatically, click on the yellow button- My Indiviudal Programme. Here you should find the activities for each day that week. The activities don't show up in order for some reason but please try to do them in the correct order (Week 1 Day 1 first). We can see when your child has been on and completed activities (well done to those who have already logged on) and we'll be sending messages to them over the weeks about their activities.  Please only access the activities between Monday-Friday, 8.30am-4.30pm. 

 

You can still use the website for ideas and the timetable if they have finished the Study Ladder tasks and want some extra bits.

 

Hope this makes sense and get in touch if there are any problems. 

 

Thank you! smiley

Home Learning Packs

Each day you should aim to complete at least one activity from the pack that was sent home with your child. We will add other activities to this page for the children to do. 

There are lots of online activities available and we will be adding links to these.

The most important thing you can do to help your child is to read lots. Snuggle up on the couch and share lots of stories.

Stay safe.
