Welcome to Class 2V's
Welcome back to a new school year everyone.
After an unusual few months, it is time to get back to enjoying our lessons. All the classroom staff are really keen to help you have fun as you learn. My name is Mrs Breaks and I am the lucky teacher of Class 2V. Mrs Bruce is our lovely full time Teaching Assistant. We also enjoy working with Miss Allen every Monday and Miss Fort every Tuesday afternoon.
If you have any questions or worries about school, please catch and speak to one of us before the school day ( outside for obvious reasons during these strange times of Covid 19 .)
Rest assured that we will try to be as normal as possible in class this term, (but with lots of extra handwashing and desk cleaning !)
Alternatively, you could contact me via the class email or Class Dojo and I will get back to you when I am not teaching the class.
Please remember, we now have a Class Dojo Page .
( Your individual passcode was recently sent home with your child.)
This is the easiest way to contact me and to see what's happening in class, especially as you are unable to come inside at the moment.
The children love that they can get their Class Dojo monsters points in different ways in class.
Adding photos and messages directly to me is simple, as is commenting on our class page. Should you need to isolate, this is where I can give guidance as to what is being covered in class and where to find links. Please take a look if you haven't already.
We have being thinking about how to be a good friend. We enjoyed choosing a friend for a photo.
Well done to all the super readers in Class 2V.
Fantastic reading, those of you who are well on the way to reading 20 books.
Our aim is to reach the '100 reading books finished' target by the end of Year Two.
It's great fun to read an exciting book, so keep it up everyone.
Information to help your child if they are isolating at home.
Fingers crossed, we hope this year will go more smoothly than the last, but realistically there may be times when certain children, or even whole class bubbles, may have to isolate at home because of Covid 19. Any of the activities you are able to complete at home will be beneficial to your child, so please don't worry about if you're doing it perfectly. Just reading a story each day would be amazing
( especially if your child is feeling unwell). Below, we will add the blocks of work linked to what we are currently learning in class for you to use at home if your child is absent from school. There will also be worksheets available from school for those who do not have access to online resources.
Below you will find a variety of resources which we regularly use in school to help you with home schooling.The Maths consists of teaching videos and matching worksheets. The English will be a range of activities based upon skills we are learning in class.
Purple Mash is an excellent resource and covers many aspects of the curriculum. Apps like Doodle Maths and Numbots are very useful when you would like your child to work independently. The Oxford Owls and Phonics Play websites are great for developing reading skills.
If the whole class are in isolation, then refer to the blocks further down the page.
The work and plans here are to help you in organising your child's learning should they be unable to attend school and have to stay at home because your family is isolating.
The work blocks below have been prepared in case the whole class has to isolate at the same time. If this happens, you will receive daily advice on home learning via the webpage and/ or Class Dojo. If your child is isolating as an individual please follow the timetable above.
Below are some websites which may also be useful. This can add to and enhance your child's learning during self isolation but also in general throughout the year.
In school we often use the resources from a scheme called White Rose Maths. Follow the link below to their website, and this will give you access to our home learning videos. Your child can watch these (they will need to do this with support from an adult ), and then the pdf's below are worksheets that your child can then complete. Email to check which lesson we are currently learning.
Useful websites for home learning:
This is great for access to lots of reading books that we use in school, plus lots more activities too.
Purple Mash is great. You child can have fun creating their own games, writing stories, creating artwork etc really independently. It has videos to help you to learn what to do.
Numbots will develop your child's maths skills well.
BBC Bitesize has a range of videos to keep your child learning across the curriculum.
The Doodle website is fantastic, and gives access to maths and english activities.
