Welcome to our Year 2 class page.
In order to help parents to continue their children’s education as effectively as possible and to open channels of communication between home and school we are setting up class email addresses for each teacher. The address for your class is firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you are aware, teachers are posting learning tasks and links to educational websites on their class pages on a weekly basis. The email addresses can be used to ask teachers questions about the weekly tasks and about how to teach certain aspects of the curriculum. Don’t worry about asking questions that may seem daft; it’s much better to ask than to struggle on or to avoid certain subjects or topics.
I would not expect that there would be more than one or two emails per child per week. Please limit your emails to questions about children’s learning, and the tasks which have been posted each week and don’t return completed worksheets for marking. Teachers will aim to respond within two working days but will not be responding with additional tasks for individual children.
Many thanks, Mr Waddington
To Year 2 children, parents and carers,
I hope you’ve all had a lovely week. I haven’t added any new tasks for the forthcoming week as it is half term. I will leave the tasks from last week on in case you would like some more time to finish them.
Please reach out via email if you have any questions or would like some support with any of the tasks.
Our science activities are all about plants again this week. Follow the link here for some great videos all about plants htps://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks1-ks2-ivys-plant-shop/zh2hkmn.
The link below will take you on a summer flower hunt. This might help you when you are hunting for plants and flowers using the activity sheet below on the downloads.
More activities can be found on https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons/1 over the week.
I know Year 2 loved this website in class and I thought it might be useful in the current circumstances. The site offers lots of free mindfulness activities and it can also be accessed via a free app . Try https://www.gonoodle.com/
I hope you are all staying safe and well and I’m missing you all.
