Week 2

Hello everyone!  

We have loved seeing how busy you have all been over the last week.  We can see that you have been doing some of the activities that we have set - well done!  The Charles II wigs were particularly eye catching and the models of flowering plants were very creative!  Thank you for the feedback that we have been getting - it is really useful to find out which resources you are using regularly and finding useful. 

We look forward to receiving more photos and messages this week.

English

Last week we started our new topic and were finding out about King Charles II.

Take a look at the document below and see if you can complete any of the tasks set.

There is an interesting podcast about King Charles II and the Restoration that the children might enjoy listening to.  Thank you to Mrs Shepherd for finding this!

Grammar.

Year 1 - Commands with exclamations

We are attaching practise questions with the Powerpoint but please don't feel that you have to print them all out and complete them.  Just writing a number of command sentences with exclamations would be great practise.  Or sorting sentences - identifying those that are commands.

Year 2 - Apostrophes - using simple contractions

We are attaching practise questions with the Powerpoint but please don't feel that you have to print them all out and complete them.  Amending sentences to include contractions is good practise.

We did not know that the school would close.

Phonics

This week, daily phonics lessons are live on YouTube with Letters and Sounds for Home and School.  These lessons are aimed at Year 1 children but would prove as useful revision for Year 2 children too.  Tune in every week day for a phonics lesson at 10:30am.

There is an extra lesson on blending for those who want more practise at 11am.
