Dear Heather Class, parents and children,
Well, another school year has passed and we are at the end of our journey in year 2 and the KS1 department. We shall all join again in a few weeks time, on Monday 7th September, in our new class in KS2. We are lucky to be taking the big step together into year 3 and this will be lovely to be able to continue with your children.
The Summer Reading Challenge has started and is all on line this year. Please follow the link for your child to join. https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/parents-carers
Please have a safe and enjoyable summer holiday. Keep smiling and working on all the positives and lovely things. Take a breath and step back. Have a few lazy days. Go on lovely long walks and enjoy the outdoors.
Miss Eddy x
Reminder again of the class email firstname.lastname@example.org
A suggested day may look like this between 9am and 3.15pm...
It may be best for your household if you try to get into a routine each week day with some school work, as you don't want to get bored just playing and watching tv all day long! Encourage your children to get showered, dressed and have breakfast, as usual. If you feel you can't cope with the school work and juggling home life, then just do what you can. We are all finding this difficult. Don't feel that you are failing, you aren't. Keep strong, which ever way you can and try to smile.
Perhaps you would like to start with PE/fitness with Joe Wicks each morning, live between 9 - 9.30am or catch up during the day https://youtu.be/Rz0go1pTda8
Or if you've had enough of Joe, then do some other heart beating work outs through this website (more in the web resource page at the bottom) https://inspiredschools.co.uk/inspired-5/ If you would like to do more active things, school has this resource for OUR SCHOOL - home.jasmineactive.com Parent email: email@example.com Password: stjohnscof
Do a little bit of writing or grammar from the daily set work.
If you have time, perhaps copy out a page from a favourite book or poem, obviously using best lead in flicks.
Have a 20 minute break and if safe, keep your distance go outside for some fresh air.
Try the 10 club - see below for all the sheets.
Do some maths from the daily set work. Challenge yourself with additional learning through the free White Rose material (via FaceBook - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/). I've also been recommended this site, although I believe you need to pay for it https://www.themathsfactor.com/try/
You may wish to go on this website to watch a variety of educational videos and play games https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk (email me for log in details firstname.lastname@example.org)
Eat your lunch and a big drink to hydrate your brain. Have a wiggle and a giggle for an hour.
Read a book (there are e-books on here) and get an adult to keep a log of what has been read please.
Practice your look, cover, write, check spellings and try to use them in a sentence either written or spoken out loud.
Look at the topic, science and RE websites - just choose one each afternoon.
Alternatively challenge yourself to this new project for the summer term - to make a living miniature garden. This could be made on a tray or in a shoebox.
Sketch and perfect drawing something. https://www.crayola.com/athome
If you are craving a sing along 🎶 then this site is free and a cheerful alternative https://www.outoftheark.co.uk/ootam-at-home/
As of 20th April we will have access to a singing resource FREE for 3 months www.singup.org/singupathome
Finish with a story time. (see the stories in the star) or stories from a website, like this one https://stories.audible.com/discovery .
REMEMBER - Keep safe online. Don't talk to strangers. Ask your parents to check before you click on something. If in doubt tell an adult.
