Hello!

 

We hope you are all keeping safe and well. 

 

We have update the reading page in the extra resources tab with Elevenses with David Walliams. Each day he reads an extract from one of his books for about 20 minutes. He picks a book at random each day. Why not have a listen. Head to the reading page to click the link. 

 

We would also like to share your Espresso and Purple Mash log in details:

These can be accessed for extra learning and we will direct you to specific parts when suited for any upcoming lessons.

We have uploaded a suggested timetable below which you may find helpful and wish to follow.

 

UPDATED: Accessing previous week's videos

Apologies for the slight technical issues in viewing past videos, we have hopefully fixed it and shared it with you all so you can now see them. We have created a folder on your school email's google drive to access previous week's videos if you want to re-watch any or if you missed one, you can refer back to it through the drive. We will be deleting the videos off the video centre each week to make the video centre less clogged and easier to navigate for the following week's videos. To access these videos, your child will need to be logged on to their school gmail account and they should have received an email invitation to view the classroom folder. Click open and it should take you to your drive where you click through the buttons: Classroom, Year 2, Home Learning Videos, Spring1, English/Maths/Foundation Subjects, w/c 11.01.21. The videos should then be there. (The foundation videos will be added as soon as possible but the English and Maths videos should be visible.) Below, are pictures to help you access the google drive folders in case you are unsure of how to do this. 

       

 

2H, your daily live check in sessions will resume with Mrs Hodgson and Mrs Graham the week beginning 25th January. 

 

2B your daily live check in sessions will resume with Miss Balfe the week beginning 1st February.
