Year 2

Home Learning - 2H

Friday 16th July


Good morning 2H and all your families,


This morning in our live lesson we will be looking at some bug hotels that the children have sent me pictures of, going through the day's activities and then they will have show and tell.  I am expecting the children are very excited about going back to school on Monday!  I have found an online dictionary that looks good so why not try it and let me know what you think here.


This week we will have daily live lessons at 9.30 am.  If we overrun and your child needs to leave at 10.30, then they should give me a massive wave, I will say goodbye to them and then they can log off.  Toilet visits before hand please.  Please ensure that your child does not access google classroom before 11 and that an adult is with them until I join the class. Children should be dressed and not in their bedroom please.  Please note that all children should attend.  Please let me know if this isn't possible via the year 2 email.  Many thanks. 


I have suggested a timetable for your child to follow. You can do the lessons in any order but please do try to avoid letting your child complete the following day's work.  Most things I have planned for, can be done by using the sheet to work off on the computer screen.  So I hope this is helpful.  I am available via the class email, so do contact me if you need anything and I will get back to you as soon as I can.   Any work completed can be sent via the email. Please ensure the email subject states 2H and your child's name. If you see any errors or can't upload something, please let me know asap so it can be remedied.  Many thanks.

Accessing previous week's videos

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. 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...
Below, are pictures to help you access the google drive folders in case you are unsure of how to do this.
