*IMPORTANT* Year 2 home learning

Hello Year 2,

We’d just like to start by saying welcome back to a new school term and we hope you all had a lovely rest over the holiday!

Unfortunately, we will not be returning to school as normal and as of tomorrow, we will be back to home learning. Unlike last year, our home learning will be taking place over Zoom and Seesaw.

We are aware that many of you will not be familiar with these two apps and we understand that you might be feeling overwhelmed, particularly given the short notice that schools, parents and teachers have had for the school closure.

Tomorrow, we will be holding a Zoom meeting from 9:45am to check who has access to Zoom and explain a bit more about how home learning will work via Zoom and Seesaw. There won’t be any formal lessons tomorrow and we will just be making sure that everyone is comfortable with how these two apps work!

Your class teacher will send you a Zoom link tomorrow morning – we will not be posting these publicly on the blog so please check your text messages and emails tomorrow morning.

Over the next two weeks, we will be following a timetable so that you are aware of what lessons are taking place and when. You can find that below:

This is NOT the timetable for Tuesday 5th January. This will be followed from Wednesday 6th onwards.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Welcome back on a happy Monday!

Maths

Today Zircon were able to show how to relate halves and quarters using part, part whole models.

English

In English we listened to an excerpt of The Witches and identified any vocabulary that was new to us and wrote sentences using that vocabulary.

Science

We found out, in Science, how an animal is best suited to its environment. What they need to survive, be it food, shelter and somewhere to bring up their young.

Welcome backĀ 

Hello my lovely Amber class, 

Before we start our exciting new project this term, I thought you would enjoy reflecting on all your hard work from last term!

 It is so lovely to be back in the classroom with you and I’m looking forward to another term of fun and hard work!

Time in ZirconĀ 

Over the past week the children have been learning time – more recently, in multiples of five minutes past and to the hour.

The children have made their own clocks to help them, please take a look…

With thanks, Ms Jacquart
