Year 2

2.4.20
 
Good afternoon year 2 families,
 
I wanted to begin by reminding you that today marks the last day of term. Learning will be sent through again in 2 weeks, on Sunday 19th April for a Monday 20th start. 
 
I have attached the mark scheme from today and I have seen the TT rockstars and Accelerated Reader pages have been updated, so I have posted the links on here too:
 
Well done to all the children that have made it on to the leader boards! Fantastic! 
 
Finally, have a brilliant Easter break.  I hope that you can keep active and creative, enjoy each other's time at home and enjoy eating chocolate! I have attached a website with 50 activities for Easter too, there are a few outside ones but most can be done in the home/garden, if you wanted some fun ideas.

Thank you,

Hi all, 
 
Thank you for the updates I have been receiving from parents letting me know how their children are getting on. It's great to hear how well you are doing. 
 
I have attached the powerpoint for tomorrow's maths lesson and also the mark schemes for today. 
 
I wanted to add that tomorrow is the last day of learning. I must have been a bit excited making the timetable for this week and added Friday lessons. I will just carry these lessons forward to the Monday back after the Easter break on the new timetable. 
 
On the news, I found this website which links to virtual tours of museums and art galleries, if you wanted to have a look: 
 
Thank you and hope that you're all well,

Good afternoon, 
 
I have attached the answers to for the reading and powermaths today. I have also attached the powerpoint for powermaths tomorrow. 
 
A few of the teachers have already sent around this timetable and I thought I'd send it on. It's a list of celebrity lessons that you and your child/ren may be interested in.  I have attached the picture to the bottom of the email. 
 
Please remember to check the timetable to see what your English and maths activities are, as well as any other activities planned underneath the timetable. 
 
Thanks,
 
Miss Guiler

Hello families of year 2,
 
I hope that you have had a happy, healthy weekend. 
 
This week, I have attached an ebook for you to use every day in your English activities. I have attached the ebook as powerpoint slides. The book is called 'Growing Chocolate' and follows the journey of how chocolate is made. It will link to your lessons each day. 
 
I have also attached the timetable for maths and English for the week and the powermaths powerpoint as I said I would on Friday. Included on the timetable is a list of other things to be doing during the day, including reading, quizzing and using TTrockstars. 
 
Any questions let me know!

Miss Guiler :)

Good afternoon and happy Friday! 

Thank you for taking on the week's learning. I have attached the answer sheet from today, but I have not added the new powerpoint for powermaths. I will do that on Sunday, along with the new timetable for the week of learning. 
 
Some of you have made it on to the leaderboards for TTrockstars and Accelerated reader this week - please have a look and see if you did!
 
 
Please remember, don't hesitate to message about anything I could help with. 

Have a lovely weekend, 
 
Miss Guiler 

Hello families of year 2,

I hope that you all are keeping well!

This first email is an outline to what I will be sending and posting onto the school website. We want to keep the children happy and engaged with their learning.

Once a week, I will send out the timetable for maths and English. I will also discuss allotted reading time, TT rockstars and other activities for the children to do. I will send through potential topic learning and other fun activities; however, Mr Hemmings will be setting a whole school topic too.  

Powermaths is set out in the same order each day: power up, discover, share, think together (all found on the PowerPoint emailed out each day) and then the activities in the books.

Every day, I will send out the answers to the different activities set, both for power maths and reading comprehension questions.

Finally, here are a few ideas for websites and activities:
Joe Wicks morning workout (9:00am each morning) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=the+body+coach
Youtube for Cosmic yoga or drawsocute
TWINKL - The code needed is UKTWINKLHELPS https://www.twinkl.co.uk/blog/how-to-utilise-twinkl-during-the-coronavirus-shutdown-a-guide-for-parents
NumBots (same log in as TTrockstars): https://play.numbots.com/#/account/search-school
Topmarks for maths games: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/counting

If anyone has any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to email me through eschools.

Many thanks,

Miss Guiler
