A Note from Miss Williams 

Structured days not for you? 

There are also some extra challenges including times table rock stars and ixl that the children can access during school closure (log in details in their homework books). A NEW log in for ixl was sent out on Friday 17th April to all parents. 
 

Any work you do complete, do in your homework book or the book given out before we closed. 

Please see the suggested timetable on the main school closure page for how much time should be spent on academic activities. 

Daily- try to complete at least one of the following:

One Maths page from the activity booklets OR ixl activity (website ) OR daily 10 activity (website

One activity of the English  booklet or a Reading sheet or ixl activity (website

One Practical idea or creative homework task 

Writing task 

Three times a week

Reading a book

Year 3 and 4 spelling practise

Times table sheet (booklet given out to children) OR a times table game 

 

 


Structured days not for you?


Since the start of this journey many more resources have become available to schools and parents to support the ‘learning from home’ process, including the latest resources announced by the government on Sunday

So what resources are the right ones?

Whichever resources interest and stimulate your child the most!

If you have already found a path that works with your child, well done, do not feel you have to change from it. It doesn’t matter what you are doing- if you are doing some work in any format than that’s brilliant. The main thing is to keep exercising their brains in some way- ideally both in English and Mathematics.

However, if you still haven’t found a winning formula then maybe try some of the following:

Suggested Daily Lessons

Maths: Use the ‘White Rose Maths Hub’. Save this address in the bookmarks for ease, daily lessons are usually loaded on the webpage one week in advance. This is the same scheme/overview we follow in school, their resources are very good and they have supported the BBC Bitesize resources.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

There are some work sheets here, however you can view most of them on the screen and complete the work in your books if you do not have a printer.

 

Literacy: Both the BBC Bitesize Resources and the Oak National Academy resources may be used for your child. I suggest you choose which one to try first by asking yourself the following question:

How has my child responded to the work I have asked them to do so far?

If your child has been reluctant, or struggling to work at home for whatever reason then I would suggest you go to the BBC Bitesize site for English. There are a series of child friendly videos with attached tasks which would suit most pupils.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-lessons/1

 

Reading:
We hope your child is doing lots of reading! If you would like to look at some new books create a Log in for Oxford Owl- it's free and you get access to different e-books and comprehension activities.

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

If your answer is more in line with- ‘my child has loved every bit of work and wants more!’

The Oak National Academy work may be more suitable. I feel it is slightly more challenging and due to the lay out and set up feels more formal and requires greater concentration.

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-2/#subjects

 

BBC iplayer (including red button 9am onwards) - Primary Bitesize

On top of those options detailed above, there are also BBC programmes on I-player which are different to the bbc resources on the bitesize website. They are mostly 20 minute programmes for 5-7, 7-9, 9-11 year olds of which the first episode spent about 5 minutes on a maths concept, 5 minutes on a story time, 5 minutes on history, with some quizzes thrown in.

These might appeal to you if you have limited internet devices, or a super reluctant learner!

Music home learning resources
Artforms Music Support services have compiled a section of online resources for Music learning and enjoyment.
The strings section includes ideas for those learning violin and there are links to Music and singing websites.
