Dear Year 2 parents,
Another fantastic week of work from year 2. Thank you to everyone who has sent work across to the office for me to see or through Purple Mash. I have loved the poems, the habitat work and the creatures you are starting to make.
Miss Simmonds is now going to be feeding back to your child through Purple Mash - where there is a 2do set - for the rest of the term, so this is a great opportunity for your child to show a Year 3 teacher what they can do. It also allows Miss Simmonds the opportunity to get to know your child.
The activities on the home learning timetable for week 10 are:
I have put in a range of exercise activities for you this week so that you have a variety of things to do. You can always choose your family favourites and do more of those!
The reading activities this week are building up to a writing task next week. Please use books in your home or those online (see www.freechildrenstories.com) to help your child explore character and settings.
Reading old favourites is a good way for your child to understand what they like to read and why. I have also used this link for the daily story but David Walliams and J K Rowling are still available!
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. Extra words are topic based (spellings of the oceans) - Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, Indian, Southern.
This week we are still focusing on 3D shapes (in addition to ongoing multiplication). I have placed a range of multiplication activities onto Education City so that your child can choose the one that is best for them. Please encourage them to have a go with one that they are less familiar with.
There is a really good YouTube channel called Maddie and Greg who talk through different science experiments to try and give child friendly introductions to the topic. This week we are looking at weird and wonderful DEEP SEA creatures with different ideas of what you could do at home. I have suggested having a go with making the ocean model but understand that it depends on the resources you have at home. It is episode 33 for this week and the hyperlink is on the timetable.
I have put two activities on for this week as I know how popular they are.
The marine conservation society is a good example of how some people contribute to looking after God’s world; helping to keep our seas and beaches clean. The video
(link is on the timetable) will hopefully prompt a discussion around how your child can help keep this environment healthy (take litter home, use drinking bottles that can be used more than once etc). The 2do activity on Purple Mash will be read by Year 3 teacher Miss Simmonds and she will give feedback to your child.
Safety on the internet
I am very aware that your child is using the internet much more than they would ordinarily. At school we remind children before each lesson how to stay safe online. This is even more important now that we are exposing children to different YouTube links. Please ensure that you are working with your child when they are on YouTube to keep them safe. Many thanks.
I would like to reiterate, once again, that although I have timetabled the week 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.
Keep up the great work you are doing, we all understand that it is not easy and fully appreciate your efforts.
Mrs Bourne and the Year 2 team
