Welcome to Year 2!
Thanks for visiting our Year Two page. Below you will find a range of websites that will help your child with their learning. Some of them we already use in school in lessons, so the children will be familiar with them. We hope you have fun!
Hi Year 2!
We hope you're safe and happy. We would love to hear from you and see what you've been up to! It makes us really happy to hear from you - we miss you lots!
We have uploaded Week 8 of the Home Learning Pack for this week. As you know from your home learning last week, the new format slims down the learning activities and provides a daily timetable with lessons that build on each other and progress as the week goes on. After speaking to many parents last week, we are pleased to hear that the structure of the new timetable is making home learning easier. Don't worry if you notice that your MyMaths activities have disappeared - we will now be setting weekly lessons and activities linked to the maths lesson videos on the NCETM Youtube channel. These lessons are set as extra challenges and do not need to be completed. However, if your child can access the NCETM video lessons independently and would like extra maths linked to that week's focus, then feel free to get stuck into the MyMaths.
Next week (starting 25th May) is half term, and we'd recommend that you take a well-earned holiday from school work. For this reason, week 9's learning timetable will be available on this page on Monday 1st June.
If you have any thoughts or comments on this new format, please don't hesitate to contact us. Your feedback is invaluable.
We understand how difficult it is balancing work and home-schooling (with many of our staff also facing the same challenges), and - as the link below details - a routine where the children are doing short bursts of quality learning is much more effective and manageable than them sitting and doing school work for 6 hours a day. A nice way of signalling the end of the school day to the children is by having them ring a family member and read to them for 5/10 minutes.
You are doing an amazing job, and if we can help in any way, don't hesitate to contact us via email.
As for us, we really miss seeing you each day and we are busy making plans for the exciting day that we can return to school. This got us thinking about some questions that we would like to ask you so that we can think about how to make your learning as exciting as possible when we are lucky enough to teach you again. It would be amazing if you could talk to your parents about these and then send us an email with your thoughts. Thank you to those of you who have already done so.
