Learning at Home
Take a look at our Year 2 page for any help with learning from home.
 

From Monday 4th May, a weekly timetable will be displayed here, full of daily activities, including reading, writing, maths, PE physical, and another creative topic based subject with both discussion points and paper-based tasks alongside ICT technology based activities to give the option of both paper based or using a computer. The activities will be around 15/20 minute activities per subject. There is no pressure to complete all tasks each day and feel free to email with any questions or queries. This timetable will also be emailed to parents directly as well.

 

Key links for you to dip in and out of if you wish to use and photos of what the children have been up to for you to look at, will still be on our Year 2 webpage.

 

Please do not feel you must print this booklet to make use of it, unless you have access to a printer and want to.
Instead we thought you might like to use the activities and ideas as conversation starters to help you find out how your children are coping emotionally and to give them the opportunity to share any questions they may have.  
Any activities that are suggested as recording/drawing tasks can just as easily be done through conversation or be copied by hand however you like!
 
(Thank you to a kind parent for sharing this with us!) 
Year 2 have been very busy so far with their home learning and doing a wide range of activities - keep it up and feel free to send as many photos as you like to my email!!

What we get up to in
Year 2
On Friday 15th November the children really enjoyed a morning at Blyth Sports Centre participating in a fantastic Hula Hoop Festival. The children were fully involved and enjoyed every minute of it .. as did the teachers! The children learnt new tricks and techniques for hula hooping and can't wait to practise at home and on the playground with the equipment. A great, fun way to exercise!
 
Our whole school theme in Spring term is "Sustainability"
 
In Year 2 we have thought about how we might save the planet and what we can do to save the planet for the future. The children have come up with ways such as reduce plastic in the sea and pick up litter off the pavement as initial ideas to protect our planet for future generations. 
 
A key text we have been reading as a whole class is 'Greta's Story' the school girl who went on strike to save the planet.  We have begun to look in science at the effects of climate change on habitats and the animals that live there. The children have enjoyed looking at woodland habitats so far and finding out what animals live there and key features of a woodland habitat.
 
In art we have looked at pointillism and the artist Seurat, the children really enjoyed using the point of a cotton bud to create the effect of a tree in the style of Seurat.
