Friday 9th July - Remote Learning 

Welcome to the last day of home learning. We absolutely cannot wait for next week when we will all be back together again at school! 

It will be lovely to see lots of you in the whole school assembly at 2.30. 

Have a great day of learning and playing, and have a wonderful weekend. 

Miss Salmon, Miss Jelliffe, Mrs Rockey, Mrs Channon, Mrs Maloney and Rosie the dog!

English 

Today you will continue looking at the book Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain. This time you will try your hand at some poetry and create some verses with rhymes in the style of the book. 

/docs/01.%20remote%2009-07/Friday_Eng.pdf

Mental Maths

Let's get warmed up with some mental maths. Make some number cards from 0-9. Lay them upside down on the floor. Turn 2 cards over to make a 2 digit number. Say what is 10 more than the number and what is 10 less than the number. 

Eg:

57

10 more than 57 is 67. 

10 less than 57 is 47. 

Then turn the cards over and choose 2 more. Keep going and see how many numbers you can make. 

Maths 

In Maths you will be recapping fractions. 

Remember that a half is the same as 2 quarters. 

You will also need to remember that to work out 3 quarters, you must first work out 1 quarter (by sharing into 4 groups) and then multiplying the answer by 3. 

/docs/01.%20remote%2009-07/maths_worksheet_equivelent_frations.pdf

Topic

In Art today, you will be designing your own symbol in the style of Adrinka African symbols. You can caption your symbol with the meaning or a saying to accompany it (eg sharing is caring). 

/docs/01.%20remote%2009-07/TOPIC-Art_Fri_9th.pdf

Story Time 

Well done everyone for making it to the end of our home learning for this isolation period. One more day and you can enjoy some time out and about (Sunday). 

We hope you enjoy this story! This is the story of an ordinary boy on an ordinary morning going to an ordinary school...until he meets an extraordinary teacher, called Mr Gee. Mr Gee changes everything and suddenly the boy's world comes alive through the power of imagination. This is an uplifting story about imagination and about the difference a teacher can make.

It's Coming Home! 

Tomorrow (Friday 9th July) at 2.30pm there will be a whole school remote assembly, led by Mrs Budge. Please dress in (or bring along) something red, white and blue to celebrate England making it to the final of the Euros! 

 

 

The link to the special assembly will be emailed to you tomorrow. We hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Thursday 8th July - Remote Learning 

Good morning Year 2s!

Well done to everyone who attended the Assembly with our special Paraolympian guest, Sophie Carragill!  We hope that you felt inspired listening to her. We certainly did!

Although we should have been enjoying our races together in school this afternoon, fear not! We have worked hard to put together a virtual Sports Day that you can complete at home. We would love to see some photographs please! 

We have planned in the Sports Day activities for this afternoon (the time it would have taken place if you had been in school), so you will be able to complete your other remote learning tasks as normal.

Also, this morning we have our very special assembly with Olympian Sophie Carrigill. We hope that you will be able to join us at 9.30am. If you have not received the email link for the assembly, please do get in touch as soon as possible so that we can send you the link within plenty of time.

Polite reminder: Please ensure that an adult is with you for the duration of the assembly.

Please also remember to join the assembly with your microphone muted.

Yesterday, you thought of some questions to ask Sophie, so please have these ready and there will be a designated opportunity in the assembly for you to unmute yourself and ask your fantastic questions!

English /docs/Wednesday_Eng.pdf

Today, we will be listening to a new story called 'Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain'. This is another wonderful story set in Kenya. We hope that you enjoy it and the activities we have set for you.

Topic /docs/TOPIC_Wed_7th.pdf

We thought that after all your physical exercise today, we would end the afternoon with something a little calmer. Click on the link to find out about the activity we have planned for you to end our Kenya topic :-)

Story Time

Wow- you made it! 

What a busy, exciting and fun-packed day we have had, full of varied learning opportunities.

Now it is time to stop, rest, relax and snuggle up for today's story. We have heard that the Year 1 children absolutely loved this story yesterday. It is actually written by another Olympian- gold medalist Mo Farrah! The story focuses on achieving your goals and personal bests. We thought it was a fitting end to today. We hope that you enjoy it :-)

Tuesday 6th July- Remote Learning

Hello Zebras and Giraffes!

Well done for completing your home learning tasks yesterday. We were so pleased to see so many of you at our class assemblies and it was wonderful to hear your news.

Today's remote learning is set out below in the usual format. As always, if you have any questions at all, please do get in touch via the class email/ Tawk.

Have a wonderful day !

From the Year 2 Team :-) 

English /docs/Tuesday_English_.pdf

Today, you will be enjoying a new story called 'Lila and the Secret of the Rain'. It links beautifully with our Kenya topic, so we hope that it helps you to find out even more about what it is like to live in Africa.

Read, Write Inc /docs/RWI_Tues_6th.pdf

 

Mental Maths

In order to get your Maths brains warmed up today, we would like you to practise counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s. Chant the numbers out loud. Do you notice anything special about the numbers you are saying?

If you need to look at the number square to do so, that is fine. 

For an extra challenge, can you count out loud in 3s or 4s? Counting backwards in 3s and 4s is even more tricky. Give it a try!

Maths Introduction /docs/maths_video_TUES.pdf

Today, we are going to be subtracting numbers.  Work through the lesson slides first.

Maths Activity /docs/Maths_worksheet_subtraction.pdf

 

Time for lunch!

Enjoy a well deserved lunch stop!

Afternoon- time to relax our bodies 

Before you begin your afternoon work, let's relax our bodies and clear our minds. We hope you enjoy taking part in this Cosmin Kids  yoga video:

Afternoon work: Olympian Visit 

 Story Time

Let's end the afternoon with another lovely story. This story is called 'Arnie the Doughnut' and it is read by Chris O'Dowd.

Arnie looks like a regular chocolate doughnut covered in sprinkles, but he is not happy. He wants to change his fate and the future of all doughnuts.

Arnie knows that if you want something badly enough, you can make it happen! 

Sit back, relax, snuggle up and enjoy!

Maths

In Maths this week, we are going to recap how to add 2 digit numbers. Before you begin, get your Maths brain warmed up with the quick maths activity below:

Quick Maths Warm Up:

Practise adding 10 to the following numbers. If you can do this quickly mentally  (in your head)- fantastic! If you need a little help, use the number square below. (To add 10, move down one square)

12,     34,     50,    72,    89,    76,     63,    80

Now see if you can subtract 10 from the following numbers. If you need to use the number square, remember to simply move up one square. This is the same as counting back 10.

64,   40,   21,   90,   75,   38,   66,   82

Great warming up everybody! Now you are ready for today's main Maths activity:

 Topic

 In Geography today you will be comparing schools in Kenya with schools in Westbury. We know lots about our school. Watch the clip to find out what schools are like in Kenya. Maybe you could use your computing skills to research yourself with adult supervision. The search engine "Kiddle" is great for finding information whilst ensuring children are kept safe online. 

 

 Now that you have worked hard on your learning, have a relax and listen to the story Harry Saves the Ocean. It is a lovely story about looking forward to going to the seaside. It has an important message about litter and pollution and how we can all do our part to ensure we look after our oceans and planet. 

Thursday 1st July 2021

Good morning Year 2s!

We are very sorry that we cannot start the new term face to face together. Last night’s announcement to switch to remote learning from today was a bit of a sudden surprise for us all- but as we have done this once already, we absolutely know we can do it again! Year 2s are SUPERSTARS! We have planned some lovely learning for you to do at home today. You will have Read Write Inc (phonics) and an English activity, Maths, Handwriting and some Topic work to do. We would like you to complete as much of the learning as you possibly can, so if you get stuck, or have any questions  about your work or any difficulties accessing it, you can either email us or use Tawk (our live chat facility) between the hours of 9am and 3.05pm and we will reply to you.

Zebras (Mrs Rockey and Mrs Channon):

Once you have completed your work, please could you email it to us (perhaps take a few photographs) so that we can give you some feedback and so that we are able to see what you have managed to complete.

Many of you returned your remote learning exercise books to school (and these were pretty full up too) so a new one will be doorstep delivered to you in due course. In the meantime, please record your work on some paper and you can stick it in your new book when it comes.

We hope you all stay safe and well.

Happy learning everybody!

From your Year 2 Teachers and TAs (and Rosie the dog!)
