Dear Year 2 Children and Parents,
In this section of the website, you will find a range of tasks and activities that give you the opportunity to continue your learning away from school. These will be uploaded daily and will follow the curriculum we would normally use at school. I will also provide links to useful websites that can be used as an additional learning tool for children and parents.
Just to make you aware that Year 2 tasks will look very different to that of the tasks set for the KS2 children. I will try my best to provide activities which are practical, interactive and easy to follow. Some activities will take more time than others, some might include recaps of previous learning and depending on how long this continues, the activities posted will be new learning for the children.
The lessons/tasks will include:
A daily English activity
A daily Maths activity
A weekly Topic/Science activity
Reading expectations are that you are sharing as many books and stories as you can and where possible accessing books and texts that the children can read themselves. I will include reading comprehension tasks within the English lessons/activities too.
Once you have completed a task - please email the work to the temporary email address below, in the form of either a photo, a word document or another appropriate alternative. In the case of practical activities, a short summary of how the children did, what they understood or found challenging would be fantastic.
It is essential that you complete the given tasks because we will not get this invaluable learning time back so please do your best to support your children with this as some of the activities set will be ‘new learning’.
If you find any useful activities/apps/websites etc that you feel would benefit all the children then feel free to share them and we will circulate them to everyone.
Most importantly, I care greatly about your health and well-being so please feel free to send me exciting, positive news or updates about your time away from school, not always to do with learning! I will do the same.
Also take this time to share experiences with your family and do things like puzzles, board games, cooking, gardening and teaching life skills like tying shoe laces and telling the time etc.
I will miss you all, stay safe and hope to see you very soon!
