Year 2 KS1 Assessment Meeting

Home Learning 13th-17th July

Hello my Kingfisher's as we come to the end of a very strange year I want to thank you all for your effort and hard work during this term. I have been so impressed with your parent's creativity and the experiences you have had, I am in awe of your resilience! This week would traditionally be transition week at school. Attached are a selection of transition activities to hopefully bring some sort of closure and help in some small way prepare for year 3. If you would like extra ideas, please see below:

Maths Year 3 - ordering numbers beyond 1000; column addition and subtraction; times tables; telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes http://www.snappymaths.com/year3/ is a good website and you don't need to print anything, it can be written on paper. Mathletics and TTRockstars is still available.

English Year 3 - Look at the grammar and comprehension activities of the previous week; write a letter and either post or email to admin for your new teacher introducing yourself, your likes, dislikes, hobbies etc (mini autobiography) As always do as little or as much that suits you. Take care Miss Weyer 😊

Hello, hope you have all had a good weekend. Thank you so much for all the great learning that is still going on and I am amazed at all the different experiences the children have had during this very strange time from making videos to cooking to sports to science experiments to exploring the outdoors to crafts and everything in between. You have all done brilliantly! 

As always, do as little or as much that suits you. 

Have a great week

Take care

Home Learning 29th-3rd July

Hey Kingfishers! Hope you are all ok and keeping busy. I find it hard to believe we are entering July! Below I have uploaded the Home Learning for the week. I have 'freshened up' the Wider Curriculum learning for the last 3 weeks and it can all be completed without a computer. As always, pick and choose what suits you and do as little or as much that fits in with your family. Thanks for sending in any photos, comments or examples of what you have been doing at home, they are all great! Take care of yourselves. Sending you all a 'virtual high five!' 
Miss Weyer 😊

You are all doing such a great job with home learning. Have a fab week!

Miss you all

French learning from Madame Lawson

 

Babelzone (username and password both 'bromet') which contains loads of stuff - games, stories, phonics, songs, plus activities to print out such as wordsearches, puzzles, crosswords, etc. It is all topic based and the children can choose between French or Spanish.

https://www.lcfclubs.com/babelzoneNEW/

 

Another good resource is BBC Bitesize. If the children search BBC BITESIZE FRENCH KS1 or KS2 then loads of topic work comes up: numbers, culture, places in town, food and drink, school, daily routine, hobbies, travel, weather, our planet and birds, bugs and beasts. There is also a section devoted to stories, poems and songs.
