Hello Class 2, Mrs Fearon, Mrs Armstrong & Mrs Green hope you and your family are all well.
Well done for working so hard to complete activities that have been set for you over the last couple of weeks.There will be no new work set over the Easter holiday, but you will still have full access to the wonderful on line resources like Purple Mash, TT Rockstars and Espresso. Tasks set so far will stay on our class page so please use the time to complete any activities you've not had a chance to do so far. Try to read everyday and keep learning those times tables! Remember the most important thing right now is for you and your family to stay safe. We miss you so don't forget you can contact us on our class e mail to keep in touch or ask any questions you might have.
We will be adding new tasks all the time so don't forget to check here for any new ones as well as choosing your own on Purple Mash and Espresso.

Supporting your child at home
The following links will take you to Espresso and Purple Mash. Both contain numerous resources for supporting your child in all areas of the school curriculum. Individual log in details can be found in children's reading records. For further information about the curriculum please go to the Curriculum section of the school website.
From Monday 30th March we will add a weekly set of Suggested Learning Activities as well as a Key Stage 1 Project link. Do what you can with your child but the main thing is keeping safe and well. Class 2 staff are checking our class e mail throughout the day and would encourage you or your child to keep in touch.
SPELLING & WRITING
There are lots of videos and activities on espresso and Purple Mash for the Year 1 & 2 spelling patterns that we learn. If you can choose a different pattern each week and try to encourage your child to learn those words. There are links below that will take you directly to the sites. The Year 1 & 2 common exception words are in the front of the reading record books. For those who don't have those at home there is a link below that you can use to help tour child learn them.
To keep up with writing & handwriting it would be a good idea to write sentences using the new spelling words or keep a little diary of what they are doing at home, they could even e mail us to keep in touch !
For anyone with access to a printer we have added Year 1 & Year 2 activity booklets from HeadStart and one from TTS - the links are below.
