Year 2

Hello and welcome back after half term from Mrs Hughes and all the Year2 staff, 

By 9:00 am latest on a Monday morning, teachers will have provided a Timetable for the upcoming week’s work. This will be a pdf file and will appear on the class Home Learning page of the school website for viewing, downloading or printing.

There will then be a Daily Plan pdf file posted on each day of the week by 9:00 am latest to give more detail about that day’s activities. This will include reference to teaching videos and content provided on Seesaw by the class teacher, and links to external sites such as White Rose Maths, YouTube videos etc required for the activity. It will also mention other pdf resources that will be available on the class Home Learning page and needed for that day’s work.  

Each day there are at least 5 activities for children to complete. The first 2/3 of these are the day’s main activities – Literacy-(reading(phonics) and writing) and Maths.The other  activities will be shorter and link to the other areas of learning.

Even if files are uploaded on to the Home Learning page earlier in the week, we would highly recommend doing each day’s set work on the given day. That way, teachers are able to provide the video input that will support the children at home, and can also concentrate on questions and provide feedback for that day’s work.

Children should upload evidence of their completed tasks to Seesaw ideally by the end of that day. However, we are aware that children may be completing their work at different times depending on their access to the online resources.

Please contact us via our school office if you have any difficulty accessing any of our resources, or if you cannot find any of your log-in information. Children can always ask questions on Seesaw if they get stuck, and their class teacher and learning assistants will respond as soon as possible.

Children also have access to Sumdog and TT Rockstars.

However, if you wish your children to complete any additional work, there are lots of educational providers offering further online lessons and resources.

Phonics- As a Read Write Inc School it is great that the Read Write Inc YouTube Chanel is doing some videos again. The link is below. Year 2 children can do either set 2 for revision and or set 3.

BBC Bitesize – - From April 20th, they are offering daily uploads of core subject lessons and information. Some of their Maths tasks are from White Rose Maths, which we are using in our Oakdene packs already.

Classroom Secrets – - Each week they are providing free home learning packs and timetables. Some of the reading tasks used in our Oakdene home learning packs are from this provider, and some of their material will be used in the BBC Bitesize package.

Hamilton Trust – - Reputable educational provider again providing free home learning packs on the core subjects of English and Maths.
