Hello Year 2s. We would first of all like to thank you and your grown ups for being totally FANTASTIC in this very strange time. The Year 2 team miss you all so much and wish we could be with you. Your Facebook posts are super and we all love seeing your smiley faces and lovely learning at home. Please keep sharing these! We hope you're making use of the free websites, keeping up with your reading as reading helps us to be superheroes and is so important. We have been busy planning new exciting work when we are not working in school. Mrs Vine has been learning to bake in her free time and Mrs Munro has been improving her gardening skills! All of us are playing lots of games with our families like snakes and ladders, monopoly, scrabble and lots more. Are you enjoying playing games? Stay safe and enjoy precious family moments.

Home learning tasks are changing. As well as daily reading please keep up times tables practice, especially of x2, x5 x10 and x3, that would be super. Along with this, we have put together a collection of websites which can be accessed at home. Not all of these require the child to use the tablet/phone or laptop. They are websites which can be used by yourselves to set challenges too. If you want any further advice or help with this, please get in touch using the Facebook page or at yr2@windwhistle.extendlearning.org.

 

We’re happy to post suggestions on Facebook also so let us know if that’s something you might like. Year 2 are not going back to school yet so we will continue to support you in any way we can. All the home learning from previous weeks will remain on school website so feel free to go back and complete things that haven’t been done.  If your child is finding the Year 2 work from websites below too difficult please adjust and use Year 1.
