Dear Class Two,

 

I hope you all had a nice week over half term and managed to get outside in the sunshine. I enjoyed some peaceful walks, tasty baking and I got to finish reading a really good book. Mrs Clements has been doing crossword puzzles, getting faster with her running and enjoyed a barbeque with her family. We are both missing you lots!

 

This week’s learning is going to be all about our new topic... Africa! Below are a selection of activities you can have a go at and some worksheets to help you.

 

For maths this week, if you have not completed them all, please continue checking out the White Rose website for their useful videos. If you visit the BBC Bitesize website for your year group, you can find some nice corresponding activities, worksheets and games too.

Keep smiling,

Good morning Class Two,

 I hope you are all staying safe, healthy and happy. This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and it has a special theme this year... kindness! This week I hope you can spend some time thinking about what you have done to help others recently. Perhaps you have been kind to a little brother or sister, kept your bedroom nice and tidy or maybe you have created something in your window to brighten up people’s days. Now we are allowed to go outside a little more, something as simple as smiling and saying hello to somebody on a walk may brighten up their day! Think about what you can do this week to make somebody happy.  I have attached some activities to do with mental health week which will hopefully help us to appreciate the things we have.

 Happy birthday to Henry – I hope you have a super special day on Thursday!

 This week’s home learning continues the topic all about minibeasts so please find below a selection of activities you can have a go at and some worksheets to help you. I am impressed to see that some children have been enjoying www.teachyourmonstertoread.com – keep up the good work!

Happy Monday Class Two,

 I loved talking to some of you on the phone last week and our phone calls made me really happy! It was lovely to hear from your mums and dads that lots of learning is still being done from home and that you are learning some important life skills as well. I am very impressed with how much cooking, science experimenting and bike riding has been happening over the past few weeks! You and your families all seem to be making the most of the current situation and spending precious time with your families is what’s so important right now. 

 It was a beautiful bank holiday weekend and I hope that you all got to spend some time outdoors in the sunshine with your families to celebrate the anniversary of VE day. I enjoyed a picnic in my garden and it was lovely to hear neighbours having fun in their gardens and know that people are still managing to keep smiling throughout this strange time.

 This week I have signed you all up to the ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’ website as it has some fun reading games that I thought you might enjoy. If you are playing on the website, go to :-

teachyourmonstertoread.com/u/5662696

Your player name is your first name, unless we have two children with your name in our class and then it is your first name and surname initial, without a space. E.g. Betsy, FreddieC, Sinead, JamesH. If you choose to play on the app, you don’t need a password but the star code is: 5662696. If you have any problems with logging on, please email school and I will do my best to help!

 This week’s home learning topic is all about minibeasts so please find below a selection of activities you can have a go at and some worksheets to help you.

Hello Class Two!

 This week I would like you to continue the home learning topic of plants. It was lovely to see some photos and read messages from you this week and I know you have been enjoying sharing your learning with your family members. Mrs Clements has also been busy in her garden and here are some photos of her plants and flowers.

 I have been enjoying baking this week and have made some coconut biscuits which were very tasty! When setting your home learning tasks last week, I noticed how much of our food comes from plants and I have made an effort to eat more fruit and vegetables this week too. In order to stay fit and healthy at home I have been joining Joe Wicks for some home workouts – I wonder how many of you have been joining in as well.

 A big happy birthday to Bobby and Flynn for yesterday – I hope you both had lovely days and got to enjoy some birthday cake! 

If you have been enjoying the daily White Rose maths activities then please continue doing those. Below is another link also, to the Book Trust website which has lots of lovely stories and fun activities to share. I have created another home learning menu with a range of activities to have a go at with your families to help keep you busy. This week’s topic is continuing the theme of plants. I have attached an ELSA wellbeing calendar too, which looks very fun, creative and will hopefully be something to help you relax and keep calm at home.

Well done to everyone who is helping out at home and showing your family how clever you are – I am so proud of you all! Hopefully we will be back to school soon and you can show me even more of what you have achieved over the last few weeks.

 

Love as always,

Miss Shepherdson

Happy Monday Class Two!

 I hope you are enjoying the reading books that were sent home last week and that you are sharing lots of stories with your families at home. I have really been enjoying reading and have managed to read a few books from my bookshelf so far!

 I have been talking to Mrs Clements on the phone and we have both talked about how much we miss you. Mrs Clements has been enjoying reading, walking, spending time with her family and she has even been practising speaking German with some online lessons!

 Jeff is enjoying looking out of my window and watching who goes by. At my house he has met a friend called Larry and they were very cheeky last week when they stole one of my chocolates! Jeff is excited to get back to school and come to see your homes when we get back to normal!

 We have been away for a while now and I know that some of you have been busy celebrating your birthdays. Freddie B, Betsy, Freddie C, Lacie and Hetty - I hope you have all had super days. Happy birthday to you all (and Lois for tomorrow!)
