Zoom Meeting to Meet Miss Higgins (Teacher for 2020/2021)
We have arranged a short meeting for children in Class Two to have the opportunity to meet with Miss Higgins (their teaher in Year Three). We hope that you will be able to join us. The meeting will take place at 3.30pm on Thursday 9th July. The ID code and password will be sent in a text message to all parents. In order to help safeguard all of the people involved, we ask that all parents make it known to the teacher that they are in the room at the start of the meeting. Parents do not need to remain on camera if they choose not to.
The Grange Primary School
Hello Class 2,
Mrs Fearon, Mrs Armstrong & Mrs Green hope you and your family are all safe and well. We have been home learning for a while now but we just wanted to remind you that the weekly learning tasks show the daily tasks and it is best to follow them in order rather than just click on Purple Mash 2 dos. If you follow the learning tasks in order some of the 2 dos will make more sense if you have watched all the clips and followed the learning first. Remember before you try the Purple Mash reading quizzes and activities you will need to read the Chapter of the text first! From next week June 22nd we will begin adding a GPS worksheet to the weekly 2do list. You don't need to print it out you could just write the answers on a piece of paper.
You can contact us on our class e mail - email@example.com and we will reply to you as quickly as we can.
You can also e mail us using Purple Mash, select the computing icon and look for 2 email. Thank you to those of you who have already used this and we look forward to hearing from more of you in the following weeks.
If you do need weekly printing please contact us.
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.
You have probably finished your school reading book by now but it is so important that you read every day. If you are looking for something else to read you can log on to Oxford Owl to find hundred of reading books. There is a link below. Look for the icon labelled Class log in at the top. The username is thegrange2 and the password is Class2. The Oxford Owl website has links to lots of activities and help for your parents too!
There is also a link to the new Government's Oak National Academy which goes live this week and includes weekly video lessons and activities for each year group so maybe you can check it out!
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. If you prefer a paper copy there are Home Learning Packs available. If you contact school they will arrange a pick up time for you.
WEEKLY MATHS CHANGES- from this week we will be using the White Rose Maths daily video lessons and worksheets. I will add links on the normal Weekly Learning Activities Tasks to a daily teaching video and also add a link to the worksheet that accompanies it. You do not need to print the worksheet you could just talk through it with your child or write answers on a piece of of paper but if you do want printed copies please contact us.
