Welcome to Cedar Class
Zoom transition meeting for children moving from Y2 to Y3 is on Wednesday 8th July at 5pm.
Hello lovely Cedar Class!
Well done to everyone for working so hard again last week! We continue to be very proud of you all.
Below you will find this week's suggested activities, as well as a list of general activities that will help you to keep up with your learning. Remember you don't need to complete all the activities, but do try to choose some of them. It would be really lovely if you could upload some of your work to Seesaw so that we can see how you are getting on! As always, please don't worry if you can't print work out; you can always just complete your work on paper then take a photo of it so you can upload it to Seesaw.
We are really missing you but we do love seeing all the amazing work you are completing at home. Please remember that we are still here if you need anything. Your mums and dads can email school if you need help with anything, or if you ring school and leave a message one of us will get back to you as soon as we can.
Stay safe and keep smiling
Miss Sutton and Mrs Holt
Suggested learning for week beginning 6th July
- This week for Maths we have uploaded a Shape booklet at the top of the page for you to revise 2D and 3D shapes.
- The English activities will be taken from the Year 1 and 2 English booklet at the top of the page. This week's activities are all about Space.
- For Science this week we are going to revise Earth and Space to match our English booklet. You can follow this link to BBC Bitesize where you will find some clips about the seasons and how the Earth creates day and night. There is a quiz and some other fun activities for you to complete. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk9mxyc
- For your topic work this week we are leaving the Powerpoint for you to watch all about Schools in the past. Can you have a go at writing a diary entry from a day in the life of a child at school in the past? What would they have done? What would it have been like? What might have happened to them at school? What would they have learnt about and what would they have played with?
General ideas of things you can do at home:
- One of the best things you can do is read. Read some books you love, it doesn't matter what they are. If they are books that are too tricky for you to read ask your mums, dads, big brothers or sisters to read them for you sometimes if they can.
- BBC Bitesize have launched daily home learning lessons via iPlayer and the red button. Here is the link for more information https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn9447h
- Bug Club. We have allocated lots of books for you to read. If you find that you run out of books there is a link to 'Oxford Owl' below in the useful links section. This has lots of free books for you to read online.
- CGP comprehension and reasoning books.
- Phonics games can be found in the 'useful links' section of the website further down this page. We are currently working on phase 6 but it is always useful to revise phase 5 too!
- White Rose Maths home learning. Every week this website adds five new maths lessons for each year group. It consists of a video, a worksheet and answers. This can be accessed here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/
- Purple Mash. There are resources for every subject including some wonderful maths games that will help you practice number bonds, times tables and fractions. We will also be setting some '2dos' on Purple Mash (click on the tab at the top of the home screen labelled 2do). Each week Purple Mash are setting some age appropriate home learning tasks. These can be accessed here: https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home/weekly_activities/weekly_activities_5-7
- TTRockstars-Mrs Holt has changed the settings so that you can practise your 2, 5 and 10 times tables and division facts.
- Numbots -Uses the same username and password for TTRockstars. This is a game to help with addition and subtraction. The school postcode is BL8 3AX-you can type that in when it asks for your school. https://play.numbots.com/#/intro
- Write a diary of some of things you do with your family at home. It's really important that you keep writing, whatever you choose to write.
- There are PE classes taking place every day on YouTube (one is at 9am with Joe every week day but I'm sure there are more if you're not a fan of Joe!)
- Remember you can always do some Cosmic yoga! Search for Cosmic Kids on YouTube - there are lots of wonderful adventures to choose from.
- Activities in your Home Learning books (see weekly list of activities above).
We have put some useful links under this information that will take you straight to the websites we have mentioned above. We have also uploaded some phonics information and spelling lists (further down the page) that the children need to know by the end of Year 2. There are lots of fun ways to learn spellings so it would be great if you could keep practising whilst you are off!
We hope you are enjoying having a go at some of the suggested Home Learning activities.
If you are working online, don’t forget to be safe and savvy!
Never give personal information to anyone! Think about the safety of what you are sharing or posting if you are online or on your phone.
Do not share your school log-ins or change your log-in details. We won’t ask you to do that.
Make sure you are accessing online material that is relevant for your age and tell an adult at home if you come across something that is not suitable for you, or if someone is trying to contact/talk to you that is not someone you know.
You can contact your teacher through Seesaw if you feel vulnerable or worried, or contact Childline 0800 1111.
