Year 2 – Panthers

Latest Updates

Our class pages have been adapted to support you through this time of school-closure. The content for English and Maths will be updated daily and the grids below will be updated weekly with a mixture of tasks for your children to have a go at.

We have tried to make sure there is a balance of fun and keeping in touch activities with some meaningful learning activities alongside.

Reading: Children should read for thirty minutes every day. This might involve reading on their own, reading with an adult, listening to stories or discussing what they have read. Children should read a range of fiction and non-fiction. Oxford Owl is a useful resource with e- books for the colour band level children are reading at. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/

Writing:

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar: Children can access their Spelling Shed accounts to practise their spellings. They will be able to access Espresso online and use a username and password to access all areas. The children have been shown some of the most useful sections in school over the course of the day. https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk/what-we-offer/discovery-education-espresso (Username: student10836 Password: school).

Phonics: Children can access the free PhonicsPlay account. The purpose of the phonics programme is to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. Guidance will be added weekly by teachers with a focus. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/ (Username: march20  Password:home). http://www.phonicsplaycomics.co.uk/comics.html On this website, children access comic strips to read related to the sounds they are working on.

Maths: Each day the White Rose Maths Hub will be publishing daily videos and work sheets (with answers) which the school have paid for so that all parents can access. The resources are excellent and we regularly use them in school so the children are very familiar with the content and style. The video can be found by following the link below (there is one for four days of the week) and then the questions and answers will be shared on this website daily.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to do the best that we can to support our children and community through this unprecedented time.
