Willow Class - Year 2

 
 
 
 
Please find a NEW topic related Homework Challenge Grid below along with STEM projects and this week's new look home learning!
 
Reading here and reading there, we love reading everywhere!
 
Well done to Libby, Freya, Annie and Harrison who have all completed the random reading places challenge! You are all super star readers! Keep on sending in your pictures and I will add them to our new reading gallery below. Have you all spotted me getting in a bit of reading practice too? 
 
Miss Palmer has been busy painting a pebble to add to Freddy's pebble snake at North Hall Playground. Have you added yours yet? Mine is on it's way soon (I promise Freddy!) and I'm looking forward to seeing how long the snake is when I go and add mine.
 
Next week's learning is all about 'around the world'! Have a look at our new style Weekly Home Learning Grids to see what you can all get up to next week!
 
I have been really impressed with the home learning that I have been seeing this week. You are all finding different ways to learn and I am really impressed. If you haven't sent me any pictures of what you have been up to yet, please do as Miss Palmer and I love seeing what you come up with!
  
Don't forget to join in with the Specsavers Sussex Virtual School  Games? https://www.activesussex.org/virtual/ 
 This week is netball and basket ball skills! You have until Friday at 12pm to enter your scores for the school. 
 
(If you have any pictures or videos of your sporting fun then please send them to year4@loxwoodschool.com and Miss Price will pop them on the website for you.)
 
Carry on being brilliant Willow Class!
 
 
 Love Mrs Rolland and Miss Palmer :-)
 
 
(Miss Palmer and I will continue to try to call roughly every two to three weeks,  although we are now likely to be needed in school, so this may become less regular or you may receive a call from another member of staff. If you would prefer for us not to disturb you at home then please email and let us know. Please do contact us via year2@loxwoodschool.com if you need any support. )
 
Below in our Home Learning Gallery are some of the wonderful things that our Willow Classmates have been getting up to so far.
Can you spot what your friends have been busy doing?
 
 
We are really missing seeing you all at school, but we are thinking of you and would love to hear about what you have been up to be it learning, creating or whatever! Please send any pictures of what you have been doing to our class email address so that we can share in your learning and fun. We will try to include as much as possible! 
 (Please remember to let me know if you give permission for the image to be used on this page.) 
 
Please find new home learning below and some exciting new STEM Home Learning Activities! 
  
Home Learning Projects
 
I am pleased to add Week 7 of our new planning for the Summer Term. Week 7 officially starts on 8th June and it looks a little different. We will now be planning in a new daily format in order to help us follow the same planning at school when we are in teaching key worker groups. 
I have also added a NEW Home Work Challenge Grid inked to our topic of 'Once there were giants!' packed with fun activities to keep you going!
 
If your child finds aspects of this planning particularly difficult, especially in English or Maths, you may wish to access lower year group plans on the appropriate class page - the format for each year group is the same so you will be able to navigate this easily. There is also a SEND edition which may be more appropriate for children who are on the SEND register to access. Of course if you have any queries about this please email the class teacher on the class email address. As always work through the planning in the way that best suits your children and your family circumstances.

We totally understand that everyone's situation is different and appreciate that while some families will be able to engage with lots of home learning, for others this will not be possible. Please only use what is helpful to your family at this time. We do not wish to cause additional stress to families at what is already an incredibly stressful time. 
 
Please find below the White Rose Maths Resources to accompany the Home Learning plan for week 6. 
Links for Week 7 can be found on the new weekly home learning plan. Further resources linked to the White Rose videos are available on the BBC Bitesize Daily website each week going forward. 
Home Work Challenge Grids and Additional  Activities
For those of you who would like more learning to try!
Keeping up with Reading!
 
So, your child can't come to school to change their reading book, but the books can still come to them! If you register for free with Oxford Owl, you can access lots of free ebooks, all in of our colour bands. There are even games to play too! Click on their age and then book band to find your child's book colour. (If you cant find their colour try in the earlier age range.)
Happy Reading!
I spotted this game on BBC Bitesize and thought you all might enjoy playing it! It fits in with our theme of 'Once there were giants' too! Dinotastic!

Internet Safety
This may be even more important at this time. Use the resources below to remind your child of the rules that we have already learnt about at school.
