Well done to all the children who have been learning online with us or learning through completing our learning packs that have been collected and worked on at home - Miss Lamb and I are very proud of you and your parents for keeping this going whilst we are not allowed in to school. We are learning new topics and techniques whilst staying home and it is so important that you have kept up this work as well as reading at home too.
Keep doing a brilliant job & stay home to stay safe.
Love Mrs Edwards and Miss Lamb xx
To all children in year 2. The timetable below sets out the online lessons that will take place each week during the national lockdown. There is a timetable for class 7 (Mrs Edwards) and Class 8 (Miss Lamb).
IF YOUR CHILD IS IN MRS EDWARDS CLASS 7 THEIR LOG IN FOR EACH LESSON WILL BE Class7.
IF YOUR CHILD IS IN MISS LAMB'S CLASS 8 THEIR LOG IN FOR EACH LESSON WILL BE Class8.
Please ensure your child is ready for each lesson with a pencil or pen and something to record their work on.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you online.
Mrs Edwards & Miss Lamb
If connection is lost part way through a lesson, please carry on with the task that has been set by the teacher.
If we do not manage to get on at all, children could access the following sites:
All passwords were given to the children when we were in school, so they should have them at home.
There are also many ideas listed below on our class page.
Please continue to try to log on at the start of each lesson throughout the day. Hopefully any ICT issues will be resolved quickly.
Thank you in advance 😊

HOME LEARNING UPDATE - 2nd June 2020 CK
Please follow this link to lessons for all year groups from Reception to Year 6:
If your child has sensory Special Needs, you may find the link below, useful.
Head Start Maths and English Learning Activity Booklets
We often use Head Start resources in school, so children should be familiar with the layout and style of questions given. It would be lovely to work through a few pages each day, allow your children to have a go independently and then work together to find the answers. (There is also an answer booklet for the adults! )
Your child has their own log in for the following websites:
All of the above websites have activities for your child to access for reading, writing, mathematics and phonics. We often use a website called Top Marks, which has a mathematics page, and an English work page. There are activities on there that your child can access, to help keep them on top of their learning at home.
This term our Science topic is going to be about materials. We will be identifying different types of materials and their properties. We will investigate how easily materials can be ripped and why this is so and we will investigate which materials are waterproof and what this is useful.
Geography and History
If your child is able to, then researching the following would be great to do from home:
This half term we will be focusing on The Great Fire of London. We will learn all about what caused the fire and the reasons behind it spreading so rapidly!
Drawings or information posters would be a great use of their time if your child has to isolate or learn from home at all.
Reading and Writing
There are lots of things that you can do at home to practise reading and writing.
Why don't you keep a daily diary and write about what you have done each day at home?
How about accessing Halton Library via the free app 'Borrow Box'. You need to be a member of the library and use your membership number to register and you will then have access to hundreds of free books online (both audio and e-books).
Have a look at the following links for some interesting things to read and reading games:
There are also some fun activities on the website.
We have been looking at farm animals during the spring term. Why don't you draw some of the animals you already know how to say and write the Spanish name for them too?
The PowerPoint we have used in school for farm animals is below.
In the summer term we will be looking at how to talk about the weather and also the names of some sea creatures, the PowerPoints are below for these too. It would be wonderful if you had a look at them and were able to tell me about them when we are back in school.
You can make up your own games. Test your families on the new vocabulary, play snap, play splat, make your own flashcards with the new vocabulary, stick the words and pictures around your house on post-its.
