Dear Year 2!
We hope you are keeping safe and well at home and remembering to wash your hands regularly! We wanted to write you a message to say that we are missing you all very much while school is closed and we are looking forward to all being back together again soon.
Under this Home Learning section, there are many exciting activities and tasks for you to complete at home, so you have no excuse to be bored! Make sure you are being good and remember to be kind to your family. And don't forget to wash your hands!
See you soon!
From your Class Teachers and LSAs
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you are keeping safe and well. While children are off school, we would suggest that they get up, washed and dressed at the same time each day, to encourage a sense of routine. Extra suggestions will be added to the website regularly but we would like to emphasize the importance of daily reading, literacy and numeracy practice (including practising spellings and times tables). We have also included some suggested daily timetables below which may be of help.
The Year 2 Team
Here is the latest information about the RWI lessons on Youtube (updated 21.5.2020)
From 1st June:
All lessons will be available at 9.30 am.
Set 1, 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will restart.
Set 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will include new words for reading and spelling.
New daily films:
ords 1: for children who are reading Red, Green, Purple, Pink and Orange Read Write Inc. Storybooks. Many children are able to read these in Reception.date
For an updated schedule and further information on our new films, head to www.ruthmiskin.com.
We use the White Rose Maths scheme at school, and it is a great resource. This link includes a short video teaching a concept, followed with an activity. The answers are also available after you've finished. Please work through the lessons at a pace to suit your child.
Don't forget to do your homework on MyMaths. You can also go on Times Tables Rock Stars and there are lots of fantastic games on www.topmarks.co.uk. Under the main Home Learning section of the website you can also access the Year 2 Maths pack on Classroom Secrets which covers everything we have learnt so far this year. It's always good to go back and consolidate your learning!
Remember to read for at least 15 minutes every day. This is even more important while you are not at school. Many of you will have lots of books you can read at home or share with an adult or sibling.
However, for a fantastic range of free e-books, we would strongly recommend that you visit Oxford Owl (click on the link below) and set up a free account. You will then have access to hundreds of books to read!
You can also now log in to your Accelerated Reader account while you are at home, using this link:
You just need to type in your user name and password.
We have also attached a parent guide to MyOn which is a feature currently free to us which gives you access to over 7000 AR books (including bi-lingual books) and also daily news. You will then be able to log in to Renaissance Place and take the quiz on the book.
See here for more information https://readon.myon.co.uk/
Some pupils have not been able to find books that have quiz numbers attached to them. This is because some of the books are international and the quizzes aren’t available in UK. Renaissance Place have sent us this message:
"Our readON library contains titles from our international collections, that is why most quiz numbers refer to the US version of AR. The easiest way to check which books have quizzes on the UK version of AR would be to select English (UK) in Filters > Languages. To do a more thorough search I would advise to go to https://arbookfind.co.uk first and select myON books in Topics in Advanced Search, as this will also allow the students to filter the books using their ZPD range."
We understand that you might not be getting outside as much as you normally do but there are ways that you can stay active at home! Here are some ideas for you:
1. Join Joe Wicks in his daily PE lesson on Monday to Friday at 9am on YouTube.
2. Try some Cosmic Kids yoga on YouTube
3. Do a Just Dance video from YouTube.
4. Keep moving with Go Noodle! GoNoodle has more than 300 dance videos and mindfulness activities for children!
5. BBC Supermovers gets kids moving while they learn, and covers everything from KS1 Maths and English, to Phonics and PE. They'll be dancing their times tables in no time!
