How to use the Home Learning section
Within each week, children are expected to choose one maths, one English and one 'other subject' activity each day (15 activities a week). In addition to this, children should continue to read for 20 minutes each day and practise their times tables on Times Table Rockstars daily.
Please remember that work has not been set for the Easter break and take this time to have a break from home learning (both you and your child!).
On YouTube, you can search for the channel 'Miss Hendry' and view me reading a book (or part of a book) daily. You can recommend other books for me to read by e-mailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need any help or have any questions, I am always available on e-mail.
Highlights from the past week
It is always wonderful to receive messages from the children to find out what they have been doing at home during these abnormal times. All of the updates are available on the class page (https://www.newscotlandhill.co.uk/year-2/) but here are a selection of some of my favourites....
Lydia and Grace spent time completing their calendar task and I was most impressed that they remembered when my birthday was!
Flynn has been practising his handwriting by choosing an acrostic poem (and he identified it was an acrostic independently too!). I particularly liked the final line relating a moon to being a night light for the world.
Oscar has impressed me with his design and technology skills when he created a moving tractor from Mecanno. He even sent me a video of it working (see on our class page!).
There has also been a lot of baking being done too. Sophia created the most delicious looing sponge cake and Oscar wrote out the recipe that he used for a bakewell tart. Mmmmmm! All of this is related to our maths task from Week 1.
And finally, this awesome artwork from Jaiden really caught my eye! It is huge and incredibly colourful. It certain raised a smile on my face
