HOME LEARNING LINKS!
Please try and continue your learning at home! Particularly as this is a SATs year, it's important to keep learning and revising what we've learned if you are unable to attend school. This web page will continue to be updated with lots of things that you can do at home to keep learning! :)
If you would like to connect with the class during this time, go to https://student.classdojo.com/#/login?redirectTo=%2Fstory click ‘enter class code’ and enter the code FGQKXX or use the QR code below. This’ll link us all to the same page and allows us to update each other on our learning! If the code doesn't work, click here for your student login or click here to join in as a parent!
WELL DONE TO EVERYONE WHO’s LOGGED ON SO FAR! The code changes after a period of time so check on here for the code! Once you’ve logged in and sighted up, you won’t need to re-enter a code.
This is a website/app that the whole school will be using to set weekly tasks for the children to ensure the children are receiving full coverage of the curriculum during this time period. Please ensure that you sign up and spread the word to other people in the school if you can!
Thank you for your lovely emails and messages! Some people are asking what we would be learning in school currently, so I will continue to attach some ideas!
- We follow the White Rose scheme of learning to inform our Maths lessons which you can access here. These are the current objectives we would be focusing on (fractions!) The topic after that is measurement.
- In English, we were looking at advertising as part of our Chocolate topic. Children were going to design and create their own chocolate bar/wrapping and write some description/ an advert to persuade people to buy it! This links to our science topic by exploring uses of different materials and how they are suitable for their product.
- In Guided Reading, we were reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and were going to design our own character to appear in the story! We were then going to write a character/setting description and a part of the story, using our writing goals which are included in the home packs.
There is no expectation for the amount of work you need to complete at home. Try to do a little bit each day from your homework pack, with a range of phonics revision (from your diary), reading and answering questions about the text, maths work and something fun and creative!
Spring Term 2020
Topics this half term
This half term we will be learning all about the 'Frozen Planet!' We will be looking at habitats of animals who live in the Arctic, where in the world this is and why it's so cold! After that we will be looking at where we live, and the '7 wonders of Nottingham'!
Please make sure that you read with your child at least 4 times per week. Your child can change their reading book as often as they wish. Rewards are given at the end of each half term for children who read 4 times or more each week but this must be signed by an adult in reading diaries. Reading diaries are checked each Friday.
Every Tuesday, parents have been asked if they would like to join us until around 9:30am for a reading session! Feel free to join in if you're available!
On Tuesdays children will be taking part in P.E. sessions. On Tuesdays this will take place outdoors – please ensure your child has an outdoor P.E. kit in school! On P.E. days children should come to school in their uniform as normal and they will get changed before and after their P.E lesson.
Forest School -POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Forest school will take place on Friday afternoons. Please make sure that kits are in school in a named bag and should include wellies and old clothes that you do not mind getting dirty!
Homework this year will be given out on Fridays, and should be handed in the following Friday. This should be completed to the child's best abilities! Please encourage work at home as much as possible to support learning in school.
In Year 2, children need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables! Please try and practice this at home too. This could be counting steps in multiples while walking or going up the stairs, counting money or even just making a poster to have them displayed around the house!
Below are some great daily learning resources! Download the document or click on each one to download the resource. Keep on learning! :)
20/3/20 We've had a lovely week learning more about chocolate! So far, we've learned how it's made, written about the process and looked at packaging and the uses of different materials. This week we've looked at the features of instructions, tasted different types of chocolate and followed a recipe of how to make Rocky Road!
Every Tuesday morning from 9-9:30am, family members have been invited to come read with us! Thank you for helping us, see you again next week!
