Robins - Year 2

When things are completely different to normal and you don’t fully understand why, it can be difficult to cope with the changes. Today, I spent some time with the important little people in my life making worry monsters. We can write down our worries and let our worry monsters gobble them up for us. The worry monsters will let the grown ups know if there’s anything that needs talking about. Of course, there’s a giant worry monster for the grown ups too because it’s important that everyone gets the chance to share anything they might be worried about.

Friday 27th March

Happy Friday Robins,

Here's something you might want to take a look at today or over the weekend. I know some of you will have finished your reading books by now and might want something to keep you reading interesting texts. This site has texts to read and then asks you questions after each section. readtheory.org/auth/login

All pupils have been registered but I was not able to share login details with everyone. I can share your login details individually if you would like them - please contact me if you would like me to do this and I will happily send them your way!

 

Friday's home learning is attached below for you.

Here is your learning for today smiley  I hope you are keeping active, enjoying the sunshine and working hard! I planted some seeds in my garden yesterday and am going to do some weeding and cut the grass today to help me get some fresh air. I hope you've been getting lots of fresh air too. 

 

Keep helping your family with jobs around the house and remember to be kind to each other. 

 

From Miss Keogh

Dear Parents/carers, 

Thank you for visiting Robins Class page – this is exactly where you will find Year 2 home learning. I will attempt to provide you with the tools, resources, guidance and support to enable you to help your child to access learning from home. I will post messages, images, links and possibly even videos (if I am brave enough!) to help you to do this. I would really appreciate it if you could read the messages/letters I post here to your child or support them to read them themselves so they can continue to learn.

It will help your child if they have a timetable for their home learning day. You can use the timetable suggested in the document below or mix things up to suit your commitments. It would be really useful if this was put somewhere on display for your child to see so they know what to expect.   

If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me because the learning and well-being of all the children in Robins Class is, and will continue to be, my priority.

Kind regards,

Miss Keogh

Home Learning Monday 23rd March 2020

Dear Robins Parents/Carers,

 

Due to the cancellation of parents evening this week, I will be sending home pupil targets with children at the end of the day on Thursday. These were due to be shared and discussed with you during your appointment.

 

The 'home learning' section of the website is a key place to visit for links to online learning platforms, all login details are stuck inside reading records. In the event of school closure, I will post daily tasks for completion on this page and also post links to websites you may find useful.

 

Thank you so much for your support and positive attitudes during these challenging times.

 

Kind regards, 

Miss Keogh        

 

'Famous Faces'

The knowledge organisers below show the planned curriculum coverage up until Easter. We will continue to learn our topic words and extend our vocabulary using the words in our word lists. 

In Robins Class, we make good choices about behaviour. The document below shows how we celebrate this and how we support children to make good choices if they find it challenging.

We had a wonderful day in Nunney! We explored inside and around the castle and sketched what we saw. We used our history knowledge when talking about what we thought each part of the castle would have been used for.

We explored medieval portraits and talked about the style and techniques used. We then painted our own portraits of William the Conqueror using watercolours.

We have been exploring traditional tales this week. We’ve been looking at what makes a good traditional tale and have read some alternative fairy tales. We sequenced and retold the story of Rumpelstiltskin using our voices and bodies to show the qualities of each character.
