Class 2

Hi All, 

As we have been off now for many weeks I just wanted to tell you that whatever you are doing at home with your children, you are doing a great job! In these unprecedented times you have had to become teachers and whilst we are here to support you, it has been down to you to engage the children with their learning.

When we first locked down there was a huge array of options of things for you to do. We have begun to slim that down somewhat, but we are also aware that different homes like different activities, and there has to be an element of choice. The links below seem to be the ones that most of you, between you, like to use. The White Rose Maths work is still there, but I have now added on the worksheets that you can print off and do at home if you wish to.

 

Had we returned to school much of the focus would have been on handwriting, phonics, reading and maths. 

 Whilst at home please continue to use:

for Year 1

and

                                         https://www.ttrockstars.com/

for Year 2

Some Y2 pupils have their revision books that they purchased from school which seem to have been a bigger blessing than we ever could have imagined!

Of course it is always good to get children writing. This could be in the form of creative writing, such as stories, or recount, like a diary of what they've been up to whilst at home. I would just ask the Year 1s to focus on correct sentence writing, and the Y2s to look at use of coordinating and subordinating conjunctions.
