Year 2

With all the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during any potential school closures. 

We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have provided links to a range of content for your child that can be completed independently or with adult support.

For independent learning and games, we recommend using Classroom Secrets Kids.  Packed with fun and engaging content, this online learning platform will guarantee to keep your child learning independently.  Parents will need to register and create a free account for each child in the household before accessing these resources.  Registration is easy and explained clearly on the site.

In the event of a school closure, staff will update this page with daily activities to complete. If this page is not updated, please refer to the class packs above.

Some of our Year 2 friends have created this video for staff and children, it's absolutely amazing!

Visit our Year 2 class page to see all of the exciting things we've been doing at home.

 

If you'd like to share a picture of something you've been doing whilst keeping safe at home, please email it to your class teacher.

Week beginning 20th July 2020...
This week's online learning is posted below. As we officially finish for summer on Wednesday 22nd July, we have added some summer learning booklets below and some links to useful websites. We hope you have a safe and healthy summer with your families and we look forward to seeing you all in September.
This week will be our last full week of home learning activities.  We will be adding some learning links, for some other useful websites and a summer activity booklet.  Mrs Clyne and Mrs Perry hope you are able to relax somewhat, over the summer, and come back revitalised in September.  Enjoy!
