Home Learning Friday 23rd October

Good morning Year 2,

Before I tell you what I would like to focus on for today’s learning, I would just like to say a huge well done for settling in so well this first term back at school. You have all done fantastically and I am so proud to have each and every one of you in my class.
This is not the end of our first term together that I had imagined, but the fabulous online learning I am seeing makes me feel so proud of how resilient and hard working you all are.
Thank you for being so brilliant, you truly are an amazing class.

For today, I would like you to focus on Maths, Phonics (speed sounds u-e, spelling u-e & reading real and alien words), PE (you can use the video resources, or maybe even try some of the skills you have been learning with Mrs Morton), Reading and finally History (completing the Mary Seacole timeline (if you haven’t already) and the hospitals then and now task. Don’t forget you can watch the videos again to help you).

Once again, thank you all for being so fantastic this first term.
Enjoy your half-term break.
God Bless,
Mrs Savage.

Thank you to all those who remembered to bring in their journals today.

Google Classroom

Mrs Sadler has now added all the children to their new google classrooms. The children should have received an invitation to join our Year 2 Classroom.

This will be updated weekly with all work we are covering in class should you need to self-isolate. You could also use the remote learning content as reinforcement/additional learning.

St Wilfrid’s Day

A little reminder that tomorrow in school we will be showing our support for the St Wilfrid’s Centre on St Wilfrid’s Day, Monday 12th October.

Throughout lockdown, St Wilfrid’s Centre continued to provide support to a large number of vulnerable adults in the community and as a school we would like to show our support for this fantastic centre.

At school, each class will be completing a sponsored event to raise funds. In Y2, we thought we would like to do a sponsored read in class. If you wish to make a donation to support this, you can do this via parent pay. The item will be called ‘St Wilfrid’s Centre fund raising day’. The St Wilfrid’s Centre will be extremely grateful for any donation you can make.

We are hoping to complete around four hours in total of reading and reading related activities.

As part of our events on Monday your child may come to school in non uniform or dressed as their favourite character. Either will be great! 

They can also bring in a book or magazine or comic – any reading material that they enjoy so they can read this over the day. We will be completing a range of work around books over the day and READING! (Think world book day but less stress and in October)

#Hello Yellow

The children all looked fantastic today dressed in their yellow/brightly coloured clothes. We have had a lovely morning learning about positive mental health and strategies we can use to help us when we feel upset, scared or worried.

Here are a few photo of some of the lovely activities we have been doing.

Reading and Phonics

In Autumn term 2, all Year 2 children will be required to complete the statutory phonics screening, just as they would have done in the summer term of Year 1.

In preparation for this we will be sending home an additional homework sheet for the children to complete. Starting from Monday, when children are given their new reading books they will also be given a separate sheet of words to practice at home. These sheets will have both real words and ‘alien’ words on them. Please encourage your child to spot the ‘special friends’ in the words before reading them.

The children are all working really hard during their phonics lessons in school and this additional practice is just there to ensure that they feel confident when faced with new and unfamiliar words.

Thank you all for you continued support.

Mrs Savage.
