Year Two at home! 

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well. The challenges will continue to be added on here over the coming weeks. Please do have a go at some of them when you can as any learning being done will help when we all return to school.

Thank you in advance to all parents supporting the children with learning during this time. If you have any questions at all or would like to share what your child has been doing you can email me on year2@olv.bcwcat.co.uk 

Don't try to replace the school curriculum at home, there are lots of different ways that children can learn. Sometime spent doing English and Maths will definitely help but spending time listening to and telling stories, keeping active, developing their imaginations through play and spending time as a family are all just as important at this time. 

Look after yourselves, Miss Earley

Online support at home

* A great website where you can support your child to read at home is Oxford Owl https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk Create a free log-in and explore e-books for your child to read, similar to those that are sent home from school.

* Another site to look at is Collins Big Cat. Go to Collins Connect and click on the teacher portal and enter

Username: parent@harpercollins.co.uk

Password: Parents20!

* Phonics Play is a great website that we use in school to support the teaching of phonics and spelling. It is currently free to parents by using the following log in details:

username = march20 

password = home

The main phases to look at are phases 5 and 6 but it is also a chance to practice sounds from other phases that your child might be unsure of.

* Please click on the letter below for information about daily phonics lessons taking place online. These sessions are being delivered by English Hubs and are funded by the Department of Education. The sessions follow the same scheme (Letters and Sounds) that we use at OLV. These sessions may be of benefit if you feel your child needs extra practice at certain sounds. 

As the weeks go on it is possible that your child will have more and more questions and maybe feeling more anxious even if they are not showing it. Here a couple of places to look if you would like any support around this. 

  • Jaime from Cosmic Kids Yoga has produced a useful YouTube clip for parents and children around using yoga to relive stress and manage anxiety https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga
  • Headspace also have some videos on meditation that can that parents can do with younger children to help with managing anxiety and relieving stress https://www.headspace.com/meditation/kids
  • Imoves has opened their resource free to parents. I use this resource in class and it has some fabulous things on there. If you use the link below to create a parent account you will have access to lots of boredom busters and mental well-being activities. https://imoves.com/imovement-signup

Daily Challenges!

Hi everyone!

As it is half term this week I will not be posting daily work. I'd really like you to keep practicing your number bonds and times tables so that you get quicker and quicker and to read some books with your family. I have also set a half term project that you can have a go at and there is the CSPTSA art competition that you can take part in. 

As a school we also have access to both Maths Shed and Spelling Shed. Both games can be accessed at https://play.edshed.com/login The same login works for both sites. If your child has lost their login then please get in touch. 

Should you wish to revisit any past learning the worksheets and slides are further down the page. 

I will keep posting photos of our caterpillars so you can see how they are growing and you can join me for a story on Wednesday. 

I hope you have a lovely half term - missing you all lots. Keep safe, Miss Earley x

CSPTSA Art Competition- Deadline 9th June

This year, you can still take part in our yearly art competition along with the other Catholic schools in Bradford. Our school has been extremely successful in previous years and let's make this year the same. We usually do some work in class for this but this year is a little different with you been at home. All the information is in the flyer below. Please send any work completed to our class email at year2@olv.bcwcat.co.uk by June 9th.

That means you have a couple of weeks to think and prepare something. You are all fabulous artists. Let's show Bradford! 

Enjoy!

Caterpillar Days

The caterpillars have everything they need inside the plastic container. The brown goo at the bottom is their food and they are definitely enjoying it. Have a look in the slides below to see just how much they have grown.

All your teachers at school know that you are fabulous! I know that sometimes it can be hard to feel that way but it doesn't mean that it isn't true. You can use this calendar to remind yourself how great you are everyday!

Our Fabulous Facts

Fabulous Facts from Spring Term

Fabulous Facts from Autumn Term

Our Learning!

Autumn Term - Our dinosaur topic!

The children did  great job of creating their dinosaur models. They looked at different non-fiction books for ideas and enjoyed adding spots, spikes and horns. 

Year 2 had a great time learning about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores by investigating dinosaur poo! 

Our trip to Cliffe Castle was brilliant! We learnt a lot about fossils and how they were made and looked at different dinosaur skeletons. We found out how to classify dinosaurs by looking at  their features and enjoyed making our dinosaur detective notebooks. We even got chance to play on the park!
