W/C: Monday 29th June 2020

 

Wow! Can you believe that we are over halfway through our final half term in Year 2? This week is especially exciting as we welcome many members of Year 2 back to school! I am extremely excited to see you all again and to find out more about what you have been doing over the last 12 weeks. Of course, we understand that some of you are unable to return so we have matched the home learning to what we will be learning in school as it is important that you do not miss out.

 

Please find below the planning for the week and any additional resources you may need. On Wednesday, you should complete the activities on www.phonicsplay.com (to consolidate your phonics knowledge), www.letter-join.com (to practise letter formation and handwriting), www.ttrockstars.com to practise your times tables and www.nessy.com to develop your spelling and reading. If you are not in school, please remember to send your learning back to Margaret Wix via the stamped addressed envelope provided or via our home learning email: homelearning@margaretwix.herts.sch.uk .

 

I can’t wait to see you all on Monday!laugh

Week 5 Additional Resources 29.06.20

W/C: Monday 22nd June 2020

 

Hello Year 2 (the best class in the world!)

 

We've done another week's learning- yippee!

Thank you for always putting a smile on my face with all of the lovely stories you tell me and by sending in some fantastic home learning. Thank you to the wonderful Year 2 parents for being so kind, supportive and for working so incredibly hard to keep our children in good routines. It doesn't go unnoticed and we really do appreciate you!

 

This week is International Week so lots of our learning will link to an amazing country in south Asia called Bangladesh. Have you heard of it? This is where my parents are from- I have visited it three times in my life and it will always hold a special place in my heart! I truly hope that you enjoy learning about this beautiful country through this week's activities. Below you will find the planning along with any additional resources you may need for Week 4.

 

Keep going, we're nearly there!

Week 3 Additional Resources

W/C: Monday 8th June 2020

 

Hello Year 2,

 

It is always one of my highlights talking to you all on the phone and last week was no exception! It's been great finding out about who has been celebrating birthdays, who is now riding a bike without stabilisers, who has been helping out around the house by doing chores and who has been developing their gymnastic and handwriting skills! It's also really lovely to hear that lots of you are managing to keep in touch by sending each other homemade gifts and letters. I am so proud of you all for staying positive and making the most out of a strange situation. Fingers crossed we will see each other soon! In the meantime, please find the planning and resources for Week 2 below.

 

Please note that this week we are expecting all parents to engage with the school by sending in their child's learning to: homelearning@margaretwix.herts.sch.uk. I am really looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful work and thank you so much to those of you have regularly been sending your child's work in.

 

See you soonlaugh

Welcome back to your final six weeks in Year 2! I hope you have managed to make the most of the glorious sunshine this week and had an enjoyable half term break.

Below is the planning for the week as well as some additional resources that you may wish to use. Don't forget to send your wonderful work to homelearning@margaretwix.herts.sch.uk. Congratulations to Anaya who was Year 2's learner of the week before half term! I wonder who it will be this week?

Week 1 Planning 01.06.2020

W/C: Monday 18th May 2020

 

Hello Year 2!

 

It was absolutely lovely speaking to you all on the phone this week and finding out about the things you have been doing to stay active and keep busy. This week is Health and Wellbeing Week which means I would like you to make some extra time to make sure you do some of the things you really enjoy and spend some quality time with the people you love. I wonder if you can spread some kindness this week too? heart

 

I have loved looking at all of the work which has been sent through to our home learning email so far. Congratulations to Arisha who was our Learner of the Week in Year 2 last week! Remember to work hard on all of the tasks this week and it could be your name that Mr Johnston announces in his Celebration Assembly this Friday! Below you will find the planning for Week 5 as well as any additional resources you may need.

 

Have a fantastic week and keep working hard. I am very proud of each and every one of you. Keep smiling and I'll see you soon!laugh

I hope you managed to enjoy the glorious sunshine this weekend and stayed safe with your families. Did you watch Mr Johnston's Celebration Assembly on Thursday? Congratulations to Elliott who was our learner of the week in Year 2! I wonder who it will be this week?

I have been extremely impressed with all of the work that I have been sent in over the last few weeks- please do keep sharing your work with us all as it really does make our day!

Hello Emperors, 

 

I have been very impressed and extremely happy with all of the home learning I have seen so far! A special mention to Arthur who was our Learner of the Week last week- congratulations! I am looking forward to seeing what this week will bring from all of you! Don't forget that Mr Johnston is still doing his Celebration Assembly every Friday so keep working hard on TTRockstars and Nessy and maybe this week you'll get a special mention too. 

 

You will see on the weekly planning that I have included Friday even though it is a bank holiday. If you would like to spend this day relaxing with your family, then please do so, but if you would prefer to complete the activities set then this is also fine. Please find below the planning for Week 3 and any resources you will need. 

 

Remember to send in your brilliant home learning to: homelearning@margaretwix.herts.sch.uk- we really do LOVE seeing it and it truly does make our day!

Thank you to parents and the children who have been sending their learning in for me to see- the quality of work has been super! This week, I would absolutely LOVE to see some work from EVERYONE!

Week 2 Planning- 27.4.20

 

Hello Emperors,

 

I am missing you all so much but, like me, I hope that you are looking forward to lots of fun learning this Summer term! Our new topic is British Seasides and the book we will be reading is a favourite of mine called ’The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch‘ by Ronda and David Armitage. Lots of our learning will be linked to this story so I hope that you enjoy it too.

 

Each week, I will post activities here and remember (parents) that if you are unsure about any of the activities, please use our email address for any questions: homelearning@margaretwix.herts.sch.uk

 

Emperors- please do your best and remember to share some of your work with us using the email above. I have added an example of a daily timetable that you could try to follow to help you stay focused on your work. I am looking forward to seeing you when we are back in school! Take care and stay safe.
