Year 2

Dear Parents

Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times. As your child has been asked to self-isolate, we are providing them with learning that can be completed at home. We understand that this is a difficult time and that many parents/carers are working from home and therefore access to technology could be difficult for some children, so we are providing work in a variety of formats.

 

Paper Based Activities

Attached  are some English and Maths paper based activities that can be printed and completed. If you do not have access to a printer, then you are welcome to collect a pack from the school office, it can be sent home with a sibling or we can deliver it to you.

 

Online Learning

We have started using Purple Mash as our remote learning platform and the children have had some opportunities in school to log on. The Year 2 teaching team will be setting a Maths or English activity and a topic based activity each day on Purple Mash starting on Thursday 15th October. This can be found in the 2DO section at the top of the screen and when completed it can be handed in by clicking on the relevant button. The teachers will then be able to look at this work and respond. We have attached a handout explaining how to use Purple Mash. If you do not know your child’s Purple Mash log-in, then please email the Year 2 teachers.

 

Other Activities

  • As Year 2 are learning about London, the teachers have set the children the task of drawing, painting or making a London landmark. They would also like them to find out 5 facts about their chosen landmark.
  • Write a story about a character travelling through London. Where do they go? What do they see? Who will they meet?
  • Practise recalling number bonds to 5, 10 and 20.
  • Read for 10 minutes everyday
  • Try to do 20 minutes of exercise each day. You could use Jump Start Jonny or Cosmic Yoga.

 

Any work completed on Purple Mash and handed in will be seen by a member of the Year 2 teaching team. Any other work completed or photographs can be sent in to the Year 2 email address and the teachers will respond. The Year 2 teachers will phone each parent early next week to see how the children are getting on with the work they have been set.

I look forward to seeing all the children back at school after half term
