"Learning to love, live and celebrate as we grow in the knowledge and love of Christ"

Monday 4th May

Wednesday 6th May

Bitesize English lesson - handwriting activity 

Please note that we do cursive handwriting in school, so when the children complete the handwriting tasks they need to remember to include entry and exit strokes for each of the letters. They all know how, as we practise regularly in school! If you can, get the children to demonstrate how in class we practise writing letters in the air, on our arms, legs, and each other's backs to help us remember how to form each letter and join it to others.

Tuesday 5th May

Maths - Please see the attachment below as an alternative optional worksheet activity (plus answers) if preferred to the interactive Activity 3 on BBC Bitesize.

This week's message ...

Hello again Y2 and parents! We hope you are still safe and well and have managed to get out to go for a walk or ride on your bikes even though it's been a bit chilly and rainy. We have both been enjoying our daily walks: Mrs Simpson with her dog Lola and Mrs McAtamney seeing the bluebells in the woods which smelt lovely after the rain. We hope you enjoyed seeing the video message from everyone in school - and well done those of you who spotted Brownie!

We are continuing to follow the BBC Bitesize learning this week.  We will check the tasks when they are loaded each evening on BBC Bitesize and add any notes or attachments here if necessary so please check back. There are only 4 days of learning tasks this week as Friday is a Bank Holiday to commemorate VE Day so if we were in school it would be a day off! To celebrate the day you might like to dress up in red, white and blue and take a photo of yourself to share doing an activity - maybe you could colour in a Union Jack flag or even create one with food, decorate a paper hat or make some paper bunting. 

In addition to the Bitesize maths activities we will continue to set on-line tasks which link to the theme of the week's learning if you have the opportunity to access the Mathletics site. Log-ins should be inside the front page of Reading Record books.

It would also be good if you can continue to practise spellings from the list in home learning books, as well as times tables on TT Rockstars https://ttrockstars.com/. We will upload an optional written times tables test ready for Friday for those that want an extra timed challenge!  

Remember every day it would be brilliant for you to read and be read to. Whilst schools are closed Oxford Owl has free e-books available online in all of the reading bands and also suitable for free readers: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/books/free-ebooks/

We miss you all very much and think of you lots and hope we will see you soon. Keep smiling and try and to do some jobs to help out at home like making your bed or tidying up your things or reading stories to your siblings.

Lots of love from Mrs McAtamney and Mrs Simpson xxx
