Year 2 Home Learning 20.01.21

Hello Year 2!

We hope you have had a restful weekend.😊

There will be two live lessons tomorrow, Maths at 9.30am and Literacy at 11am.  You should have received an invite for these sessions however if not, then you can join the meetings through the Teams app. Please come to each meeting armed with paper and a pen to write.

Following the Maths lesson, the worksheet below should be completed.  You do not need to print this sheet but the children will need to see it so they can work out their answers. Please choose the correct colour group for your child. They should know their groups but if they are unsure, please email the year 2 team.

Wednesday Maths Blue

Wednesday Maths red and orange

Wednesday Maths Yellow and Green

Following the Maths lesson, we will be carrying out our daily literacy. Again, please come armed with a pencil and paper. The lesson looks at acrostic poems and the worksheet can be found below if you wish to print it.

Literacy acrostic poem templates

If you are unable to attend the live sessions, a recording of the lesson will always be available afterwards.  Worksheets and any further instructions will be shared via the website. We understand that this is tricky for some of you working from home, especially those with siblings so we understand that it is not always possible to join live. We hope the recordings help to support this. 

Other home learning activities set for today:

Guided reading – please read the text and then complete the questions.

Deep Sea Explorers reading and questions

Spellings – our spelling rule for this week is the ‘el ending’.  Please see Mrs Thomas’ website post for today’s activity.

el ending spellings

Times Tables – please see Mrs Horler’s post for today’s activity.

Don’t forget to email us any work that you do or post it on the Year 2 homework blog.  We love to see the work you are completing at home and you might even earn yourself a gold card!

If you have any questions please email us on newdale.year2team@taw.org.uk

Many thanks,

Miss Newport and Miss Jones 😊 😊

18.1.21 Online Learning Offer Survey

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We hope that you all continue to stay safe and well.

 

The best way for your children to continue making super progress during this difficult time is for them to access our very carefully planned Online Learning Offer. These sessions are as they would be if your child were in school and in fact are the same offer as the ‘critical worker’ children we have in school. Paper packs are a last resort and we discourage this if there is any way you can gain online access for your child. (Call us if you need help).

 

For those of you whose children are accessing learning at home, we are keen to gather your thoughts as to the provision that we are offering.

 

Please could you follow this link https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=2s8TOK9SpUy44yMVeXcKujfWR1zrUJ1JhQgacqv0-RBUQUcwTEc3ODlOMlhIMjEyRVVUTVFaVUwzTS4u and respond to this by Friday 22nd January at 3pm.

 

Every response will be read and used to further improve our offer if needed. Feedback will also be passed onto staff and governors, who I hope you will agree are working so hard to keep your child’s progress as the priority.

 

Kind regards

Mrs Bishton

Supporting your child at home

The Year 2 team would like to thank all of the family members at home who are helping with home learning.  We know learning from home can be tricky but we are very proud of the efforts all of the Year 2 children are making.

For Maths next week we have put together this knowledge organiser to help you to support your child’s Maths learning.  We hope you find it useful!
