What a fantastic day had by all!
Year 2 enjoyed a fantastic treat in the form of Polar Express. The excitement built as the children awoke to golden tickets and instructions to wear their PJ's for school. To arrive to a train track in their classrooms and adults in pjs too. We went on a fantastic, imaginary train ride, boarding the Polar Express and enjoyed watching the movie and a hot chocolate too.
What a fantastic day had by all!
We even know how the numbers are made up. We used our Part Whole Models, to show the parts of a number and how they are made.
We are learning all about place value - the value of the numbers and the place they are. We know that a 2 digit number is made up of tens and ones. Have a look at us sorting numbers, using diennes into our place value charts.
We enjoyed our hook into our new Literacy text today... Mixed! We had fun mixing the primary colours to create other colours, just like the book. We can't wait to do more work, discovering the colours and their emotions.
We have had a fabulous first, full week in Year 2. All the children are doing us proud and working exceptionally hard and adjusting to the new routines. Well done to you all.
Spelling books have started to go home, so just a reminder they will be tested weekly for their knowledge on spellings. Please practice them at home. We will begin to send phonic reading books and records this week.
Welcome to Year 2. Attached is a power point of information for what we need to share with you regarding your child's journey in Year 2 as we can now not hold the welcome meetings due to the current guidelines. If you have any queries, please contact us.
What a wet and horrible week it has been for the weather! On the plus side, what a great week on our Seesaw. Again I am so proud of all the work you are producing although there are a few of you, who I would love to hear from, whether this be on Seesaw or Dojo, as I know lots of you are learning at home using packs I have made for you or evens books your families have got for you. You are all fabulous, keep working hard.
Special Mentions this week;
Grace W consistently working hard on Seesaw and at home.
Freddy-James great effort in his home learning tasks.
Benjamin - fantastic work produced on Seesaw all the time.
Tillie-Jo - great home learning activities produced.
However a huge well done to you all! I have now caught up on all owed dojos and added some extra as a treat to say well done :-).
As we enter week 3 of our Summer term, I wanted to say again how much I miss you all. I have received some lovely cards and letters from you and it really does make me smile. I cannot wait to see you all.
Next week we have a new story of the week which will be uploaded on Monday for you. As well as this, each day I will upload 4/5 activities - 3 of which will be RWI, Literacy and Maths. You can use Purple Mash and TTR whenever you want to, remember Purple Mash has so many things on there. I know some of you feel a little overwhelmed when there are too many activities sat in the box, so the new ones appear each day but they will not be archived (removed for at least 7 days), this allows time for others to do them if they haven't been on.
I have picked out some lovely pictures from this week for you to enjoy just like I did, as well as a video that really did make me laugh when you listen to the poem being read. Well done all of you.
See you soon x
Wow, what a week! It's so lovely to see lots of you posting your work on Seesaw and completing the activities. I love seeing what you all get up to, listening to your voices, seeing your smiling faces and reading your fantastic activities you submit. So thank you to each and everyone of you! I know lots of you are also working at home with packs I have provided or books parents have bought and again this is fabulous. I am so proud of every member of my Year 2 family and I cannot wait until we are all back together.
I have attached some photos of some work so you can have a look and be proud of yourselves.
Elsie and Elise - superstars singing in the Young Voices International Choir. Wow - you were amazing. This song means so much to school, the words are so powerful. Well done.
Abbie and Charlie - excellent attitudes to their home learning, submitting great pieces and showing great pride. Well done you two.
The news is changing every day and I honestly don't know what will happen next or when we will be back together. I am back in school now with a bubble of children BUT I do miss you all lots. Mrs Lumb, Miss S Smith and Miss Wordsworth are checking on your Seesaw throughout the day and I am checking in along with Mrs Harding when we can and this will continue next week.
Keep working hard, enjoy making memories and stay safe. xxx
One activity that was set this week was for the children to make a musical instrument using recyled materials from home. You have absolutely blown me away with the effort that has gone into these. It truly was wonderful to see your creations through pictures and videos and it would be a shame to not shame them with you all so here goes.
Wow, what can I say as we sit on week 5 of our lockdown. It is so fantastic to see your wonderful hard work on Seesaw, seeing your lovely faces and photographs and watching any videos you upload. Our aim is that all of our children are accessing the app to help support everyone through these times. At the moment there are still a few who aren't signed up or who have not accessed, please do contact us if we can support or help in anyway.
Work is being assigned daily at the moment as I don't want to overwhelm the children by posting too much on there at the moment nor do I want them to attempt everything in one go. From the start we have stressed the importance of little and often.
Your work this week, as always is incredible so below are some snippets of just how fabulous you really are.
Miss you all lots.
