Croeso i Ddosbarth 2, Welcome to Year 2

Our Class Topic  is
Our Week

This Week's School Work

Monday 23rd March

You will find Year 2's work activities on the Google Classroom on Hwb.  Next week's activities will be 'live' at 7 o'clock on Sunday evening.

You can access this by going to the Hwb website and logging in.  Once logged in scroll down to the Google for Education tab.  You may need to put your email / password in again.

If you need some help please see Mr Turner's video by clicking on the Home Learning tab on the menu at the top of the page.

Useful websites - these have been updated to include all that have been on here previously as well as some extras.  It's always good to recap previously learnt work as well as introducing new skills. 
Other tips...
  • Keep practicing your high frequency words in the front and back of your homework books.  Once you can read them, practice spelling them correctly as well.  Can you put them into a sentence that makes sense?
  • Create a 'Lockdown' diary and add to it every day.  Include what you have done, how you feel and what you can't wait to do when you can get out and about as normal (or when you get back to school!)
  • Log into your Purple Mash account.  There are so many activities and games to complete.  Why not start with... Click on games and then Multiplication (it has a calculator icon).  Click on Custom and then select your options for your own game. 

Home Learning

  • Try to think about the routine we have in school.  Maybe make a timetable with your child and stick it to the fridge.

  • Don't beat yourself up if you have an 'off day' (speaking from experience here :) ) - tomorrow is a new day and you can start afresh

  • It will be difficult to begin with.  Many of us are also working from home and can't give our child/ren the time we would like to.... Many of us also have other children and of course we need feeding too!  You are human after all.

  • Share the load. - Consider linking up with other parents or family members and doing 'mental maths', 'storytime' or 'reading time' for example.  Have a look at the app 'Houseparty' but I know there are lots of other great apps like zoom that could be used. Having another parent do some work not only gives you a a break but also helps in that your child isn't taking instructions from you. ... we've all been there!

  • Ensure your child is getting regular breaks. We don't work solidly in school; our work is broken up with play/lunchtimes, worship, free choice etc.

  • Get off to a good start - Joe Wicks is doing daily exercise classes for children (and why not join in too?!)

  • Preparation is key - ensure you know what you want to achieve the next day.  It has helped me by setting the table up every evening with work and sticking to it as much as possible.
