Welcome to our Year 2 class page.
Dear Parents/ Carers.
This week and next, I will be meeting with each Year 2 child for a short individual video meeting. This will just be an informal chat with your child about how they are and how they are getting on with their home learning and to discuss how they feel about their return to school . I will send a text message with the day and time of your child’s meeting. Then, your child will access the meeting through Microsoft Teams in the same way they would access a normal video lesson. If they go to Posts, a meeting will be posted in the afternoon with their name on it. They will just need to join at the time they have been given and wait in the lobby and I will let them in when the meeting starts. If your child is a Key Worker child and attends school on a Thursday they will have their meeting with me in school instead. If your child is a Key Worker child but learns from home on a Thursday, their meeting will be a video meeting.
Many thanks for supporting us with the home learning by helping your child at home. Please use the email below if you have any questions.
Week commencing 11th January 2021
I would like to say well done to our fantastic Year 2 class for working so hard and making a super start to the new term. I would also like to thank parents for their co-operation and hard work at home as we adjust to our new way of learning. Our 9.15am sessions will be a maths focus and our 11 am session will focus on phonics, reading and writing. We will also have live sessions on Monday and Wednesday at 2pm to introduce work for the afternoon and celebrate achievements.
Work will be uploaded onto SeeSaw every morning. Where possible I will create a pinned note with all the links to the tasks to make them easier to find. We understand, however, that the situation is different for everyone and that work may have to be done at slightly different times due to work commitments or other circumstances.
Please encourage your child to read everyday . Children can log on to the Oxford Owl website and search for a particular title.
