Hello Year 2!
How are you all doing? We hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed last week’s home learning activities. We received so many fantastic photos of you creating treasure maps, making treasure chests and doing lots of fantastic learning. It was so hard to choose just a few photos so Miss Rolfe has created a brilliant video of all your home learning photos, take a look below. Don’t forget to send in your photos this week to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was great to see so many of your faces during our Year 2 whole year group Google Meet last week. This week we have lots more Class and Year Group Meets taking place, these Meets will have smaller numbers of children in them and will allow more time for the teachers and staff to chat to the children. As we are offering smaller Meets to all children there will be no whole year group Meet on Wednesday. Check out the ‘Extra Activities’ section or the Google Meets page to find out which day your Meet will be held, what the password will be and what you need to bring along with you to the Meet. Remember you have to log on to Google suites using your child’s .306 log on otherwise you will not be allowed into the Meet. Please click here for instructions on how to log on. Please email email@example.com if you need your child’s log on details, we kindly ask if you send in queries the day before your Meet at the latest so we can have time to email you back with the correct details.
This week, it is National School Sport Week. At this time of year we are often enjoying taking part in Sports’ Day. This year, our celebration of sport will be a bit different but you can find out more about getting involved in NSSW from home here: https://www.youthsporttrust.org/national-school-sport-week-home. As part of this week’s whole Trust challenge, we would like you to get active by building – and using – your very own obstacle course. Check out Wednesday’s learning for more information.
Also this week, it is National Picnic week. The sun is set to shine this week and what better way to celebrate than by having a picnic in your garden, local park or even on the floor in your home. You could bake something nice to take with you or help your grown up make the sandwiches before you set off. Picnics are a great way to spend quality time together, get some fresh air, play games or listen to music. Don’t forget to tidy up before you leave and bring you litter home with you if you can’t find a bin. It will be hot so remember to protect yourself with a sunhat and sun cream. Why don’t you take a photo of your picnic and send it into the year 2 email, we’d love to see them.
We have more fantastic pirate themed activities for you to complete in this week’s learning and you will also be finishing off your pirate chapter stories. We have an exciting soap sculpture lesson planned for art, a science lesson exploring habitats in your local area and a great PSHE lesson all about changes and our feelings. The year 2 teachers have recorded some more pirate stories click on the teacher’s name to watch the video. Mrs Clapham reading ‘Miranda and the Castaways’ by James Mayhew, Mrs Sullivan reading ‘Tim, Ted and the Pirates’ by Ian Whybrow and Russell Ayto and Mrs Sullivan reading ‘Class Three at Sea’ by Julia Jarmen.
