Dear Year 2 parents,
Thank you to all who are continuing to encourage and support your children to complete school activities.
I have seen some great work on Purple Mash (angry sea descriptions and letters) plus work that has been sent to the office - including food chains, dinosaur fossil artwork and dinosaur cards. I continue to monitor everybody’s work and love reading comments written by the children. It is good to know what they are enjoying .
The activities on the timetable for week 6 are:
PE Joe Wicks and cosmic yoga continue to be popular. Do whichever suits your family and gets your child ready for learning.
We are continuing to use Purple Mash and Education City in Year 2. The latter, children can mainly do independently but with the Purple Mash most children will need some adult help with the reading.
Please encourage your child to complete the activities through the week. Well done to those who completed the Mary Anning online multiple choice again last week. There were some impressive scores and attempts. If your child has not had a go then please encourage them to do so.
Please continue choosing words that your child cannot spell yet on the high frequency list or the common exception list. These are words that Year 2 children should be able to spell within their writing tasks if they are working at the year 2 standard. Any extra words to try would be topic based so your child could try: Omnivore, Carnivore, Herbivore, classify, classification.
Please continue to encourage your child to complete the maths activities set. With Purple mash your child can choose their level in some activities and with Education city it is levelled for your child. TT rockstars is the same for all but is very fast. With this in mind, I have set some of your children multiplication games on Purple mash instead. Please let your child use objects to help them with the activity such as dried pasta or Lego. I have been pleased with the scores I saw last week.
Before your child starts their writing tasks please remind them to think through each sentence they want to write before they start. Once written they then read it back to make sure it makes sense. They need to remember to vary the conjunctions used (instead of using “and” they could put so, when, because, while, but etc). They also need to check their spellings and avoid repetition. Please then submit their work onto Purple Mash so that I can see it and feedback to your child. We continue to be very grateful for all of your hard work and support at this unprecedented time and understand how hard it is to juggle your own work and work set for your child. You are doing really well.
I would like to reiterate , once again, that although I have timetabled the week ( as some children like this structure and some parents want more specific timings ) please swap days and timings around to suit you and your family.
Both the PE and the audio stories can be accessed at any time on the YouTube channels as can Purple Mash, Education City and TT Rock stars.
Many thanks and please look after your own wellbeing.
Mrs Bourne and the Year 2 team
