Friday 27th March
Good morning everyone and happy Friday !! Lets start our day again with P.E with Joe Wicks, the last one of the week. We would normally have assembly where some children would get a certificate for being a super learner. Why not pick a piece of work or anything you have done this week that you are proud of and tell your grown up why it has made you proud.
Today, finish your non-chronological report about your chosen bird. Don't forget to check your success criteria. When you have finished, maybe you could illustrate your report with images of your chosen bird.
Try and read daily for 20 minutes either with a grown up or independently. Why not, if you have siblings read with them taking it in turns to help each other. The Book trust have loads of amazing books you can read online and story time videos you can watch.
We have done lots of arithmetic practice this week so for today's maths, pick from the challenge cards and answer them in your workbook. We haven't learnt time in class yet but you are all super mathematicians and I think with your grown ups help you could have a go!!
Maths challenge cards
We would usually have our art session in the Artelier this afternoon with our art teacher working on our observational drawings. So, why not pick something at home and do an observational drawing? This could be one of your toys, a pet or even your grown up!! Remember to take your time, draw to scale and keep looking at what you are drawing.
We love to colour in year 2 Willow during our golden time, we find it so relaxing especially when we put mindful music on in the background. If you don't want to colour or do a word search, remember this is your time to choose whatever you enjoy doing, this could be building, maths or even quiet reading. Enjoy whatever you chose
Thursday 26th March
Morning 2 Willow Today we would normally have P.E first thing so lets again take part in Joe Wick's P.E session but also why don't we do a 5 a day challenge! Click on the link below to take part. My favourite one is the Big Jubilee, give it a try.
Now that you have made an amazing plan about your chosen bird for your non-chronological report. You can start to write your report. Remember to re-read and take your time. I am looking forward to reading all the incredible facts you have found! Before you start, have a look at the checklist below and use this to remind yourselves of what you need to include.
Checklist for report
For topic today, have a look at these amazing animals made from things found outside and in the garden. Have a go at creating your own animal from things you find. If you are not able to get outside, why not use recyclable things you find around the house instead?
For today's maths, have a go at some fractions word problems. Read the question carefully with your grown up before you workout your answer. Pick and try at least 2 of the problems. Why not at snack time see what fractions you can cut your fruit up into? I like my oranges in quarters.
Try and read everyday for at least 20 minutes, this could be a magazine a comic book even a joke book! Literacy shed have lots short films and reading activities you can do also once you have read.
Tuesday 24th March.
I hope you have all slept well and are excited about today's learning. Lets start the day at 9am with P.E with Joe Wicks. Follow the link or search his youtube/blog Joe Wicks the body coach.
Today's maths is arithmetic practice and a recap of all our shape work. Remember to use our maths methods to help you and don't forget to show your working out and check your answers.
Practice our talk for writing Puffin non-chronological report each day with actions. Then you can pick your own bird to research (there is a list of videos below to help get you started). Write all the interesting facts you can find in your workbook so they can help you write your own non-chronological report later in the week. You can do this as a mind map or as bullet points.

Welcome to Year 2 Willow class page
I am very excited to be working with both your child and you this year. This page is a wonderful place to find ALL the information you need for the year ahead. I will regularly update it with pictures of your child's learning in school. If there is anything that I can help you with please do not hesitate to ask.

Every day routines
School starts at 8.50am prompt, this is a time for parents to come into school and settle their child into their learning. We call this S.O.D.A time (start of the day activity)
School finishes at 3.30pm prompt. Please be on time to pick up your child, if you are delayed or someone else is collecting your child please contact the school office.
Your child has a colour levelled reading book that they will change in school with an adult. If your child has read their book and needs a new one, please put it into the box by the door at the start of the day along with their reading record. We have very high expectations of parents and expect that your child reads at least 4 times a week and changes their book regularly. Please remember to sign their reading record.
Reading at home and in school is so important. In the words of Dr Seuss, You can find magic whenever you look.. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!
Please can your child bring their book bag to school every day.
Homework will be sent out every Friday, please return the homework by the Wednesday so that it can be marked. Each week there will be a Homework Star of the Week presented in our Friday Celebration Assembly.
Year 2 will have Physical education on Monday and Thursday (all year). Please bring their PE kit into school and leave it in school for at least each half term (they really don't get too dirty)
We have an awards assembly each Friday for approx. half an hour. In this assembly there will be 2 certificates awarded in each class. You will receive a text by Wednesday if your child is going to receive a certificate inviting you to come along and celebrate.
