Welcome to Class 2V's Web Page
Hello , my name is Mrs Breaks and I am the lucky class teacher of the children in Class 2V. We have a fantastic full-time teaching assistant in our class called Mrs Blackman . We also have the support of Miss Fort on Tuesday afternoons.
If you have any questions or worries about school, please come and speak to one of us before or after the school day.
w/b Monday 6th April, 2020
As Class 1P, Class 1/2 B and Class 2V have been sadly unable to take our farm trip, here are many super links to take you on Virtual Trips Around the World!
The Macaroni Kid website includes a great link to different types of farms too:
There are 11 different farms to explore, from a dairy farm to an Apple Orchard.
You could write about what you find out and draw pictures in your book.:)
Some Activities to Complete Whilst we are Learning at Home

I know that Class 2V love stories. Enjoy your own books ,or you will find that You Tube has many popular books online!
You could choose your favourite book and have a go at some of the activities I have added below...
Whether you choose a familiar story,( Like those from Apple Tree Farm) or something new- have a read!
You could print them off to keep with your activity booklet.
Time to Shape Up!
Here are some 2D (flat shape) worksheets and 3D (solid shape) work sheets for you to have a go at . Remember, there are lots of 2D and 3D objects for you to find at home, which you can borrow to help count features like corners and sides.
Activities for over the Easter break
I have added a document of Easter Activities which you can print off and complete and play the games, do the colourings etc.
There is also a good website with Easter links to RE and craft activities.
I have also attached a document from the Lancashire English team which has activities based on a story with lots of links to online documents. There will be one of these released each week after the break, so keep checking back on this page weekly!

Within the workbook and worksheet pack your child will have at home are an endless source of activities . There are sheets within the workbook, with links to many useful websites for English, Maths and Science in particular.
Please look at the list of websites the children are familiar with below...
Children have been given their login details for the above websites inside their purple exercise books.
The websites below are all super websites - many of which are offering FREE subscriptions for at least a month.
We use this regularly in school and all the children are really familiar with the games. Try any games (Phase 3, 4 or 5). You may need to create an account but lots of games are free.
You may need to create an account but this site has lots of READING BOOKS similar to those we have in school. Reading is THE MAIN area of learning we recommend for our children - it is so important! Try and read a book as regularly as possible!
Another amazing site with a HUGE amount of activities, stories, games, worksheets for all subjects - English, Maths, Science, Geography, History... everything!
This is a new website which we haven't used before but is offering free log ins for children. Their log ins are in the purple exercise books.
Log ins are the children's first names and password 'pig'.

Gonoodle.com is a fantastic website for Year Two children. It has been LOVED by previous class members. There are lots of dance and mindfulness activities to enjoy. Some are just for fun, whilst others are linked to areas of the curriculum.
Class 2V have always used the free elements of this website as a treat after SATs in previous years. If you explore, you will find songs, raps or routines which will quickly become your favourites. It will be fun to do this together when we are back at school.
Do you remember the milk bottle elephant, sitting in our classroom? Whilst you are at home, with an adult's help with cutting the plastic, you could make your own Elmer the Elephant at home. Instead of using tissue paper, you could cut up old magazine pictures into squares,to decorate his patchwork body. It would be lovely to see your finished creations. Mrs Breaks

Colouring Sheets to Thank the NHS
Here is a chance to colour a beautiful thank you picture, which you could stick in your window to make people smile. It is a chance to say thank you to all the hardworking hospital staff at this difficult time for them. You could be even more creative and design your very own Thank you poster.
All ready for Mother's Day!
Super Salads !
We were very excited to try out different salad ingredients.
It was hard to decide on which salad ingredients to include in our own side salad recipe. It was fun preparing our side salad, but we most enjoyed eating it all up!
We loved performing our Christmas play 'A Midwife Crisis'. Thank you for coming to watch us.
Happy Friends in Class
We had great fun enjoying 'The Twits' and finding out all about Roald Dahl and his fantastic characters. We enjoyed dressing up on Roald Dahl's birthday.
Thank you for all your donations for the Roald Dahl Foundation.
Fruity Fun !
In our Science lessons, we have been enjoying investigating things.
This week we were busy investigating if the biggest apples always have the most seeds.
Useful Class Information
- Children will be taking a Spelling homework sheet every Friday. The words on the sheet will be checked in a Spelling Test the following Friday. Don't feel that you need to get the homework in quickly, you can keep it until the day of the next Spelling Test, so that the completed sheet can be used for practising at home.
- Reading books are sent home daily. If your child has a thicker book, feel free to read a few pages each day, rather than rushing it. Just add a note of where they are up to, so that we can follow on from the same point when we read in class. To develop their independence, children are given time each morning to change their own book if they have finished it.
- Doodle Maths and Numbots are available online so that the children can boost their understanding of Number-They have so much fun, they don't even notice they are learning new Maths and improving the skills they have! Children will be reminded of their passwords in class if they need help.
- Our PE lesson is on a Thursday afternoon. Children need to have black shorts, a white t shirt and black pumps for this part of the curriculum. These items will be sent home every half term for a wash. If your child wears earrings, please remove these each Thursday.
