Summer 2 Week 7 - Week beginning 13.7.2020

Hello Year 2!

I can’t believe this is your last week in Year 2! Where has that time gone?

This week the whole school will be working on the Take One Picture project where all of our work is based around a picture. The staff have chosen a wonderful painting for this year by an artist called Radosveta Zhelyazkova. I hope you enjoy completing the tasks and I’ll look forward to seeing the things you have done on Seesaw. Your timetable is below.

I hope you have a wonderful week learning some different things. Do give the cosmic yoga a try if you can – Mrs Hall and Mrs Ashcroft had lots of fun with it this week in Year 1.

I want to say thank you so much for being a wonderful class and let you know that I really will miss teaching you all next year. Out of all of the classes I have taught, yours is definitely one of my favourite classes and I will look forward to waving at you across the corridor in September.

Have a wonderful summer.

Take care

Summer 1 Week 6 - Week beginning 6th July 2020

Hello Year 2,

I hope you’ve had a lovely week and that if you were in school on Wednesday, you enjoyed being back.  Well done to everyone who took part in the virtual sport’s day – you did brilliantly! We are now at the last week of lessons as next week we will be doing Take One Picture, where we base our work around a painting. This week I have chosen one of my favourite books for English, Mrs Rainbow and our art work will be about colours. Your weekly timetable complete with links is below.

Spellings

This week it is the big spelling test, where you are tested on the spellings you have practised this half term. Remember the strategies you can use to practise the spellings on your own, e.g. look, cover write, check, writing them out in rainbow colours or different styles of writing. Ask an adult to choose 12 at random to test you on.

Summer 2 Week 5 - week beginning 29.6.2020

Hello Year 2,

I hope that you are all well and safe. This week would have been our sports week (which is probably why it has been raining) , so Mrs Asquith has arranged a virtual sports week for you. All of the details are on Seesaw.  Good luck!

Some of you will be coming back into school on Wednesday which I’m sure you are very excited about and perhaps a little nervous. Unfortunately, I won’t be teaching you but Mrs Young is incredibly excited. She cannot wait! In fact, you might even get a happy dance. I have planned the weekly timetable as usual, but if you are coming back to school, you won’t have to do the work on the timetable for Wednesday.

This week’s work is all based around sport and health. On Tuesday, I have recorded a video lesson for English which is on Seesaw. I’m really sorry if it seems a little rushed but Seesaw only allows videos up to 5 minutes long.

Hello Year 2,

***** IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING MATHS VIDEOS *****

I am really sorry but I forgot to add this information before now. You might have noticed that the videos are different from the worksheets. This is because the children have already covered the ‘length’ lessons and so they are working on the alternative lessons for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday will be as normal. To access the correct videos, click the days as usual on White Rose Maths and then the link which says alternative lessons which is under the worksheet link. I have pictured this on the document below.

I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. This week for our Titanic topic, I would like you to use what you have learnt to create your own project.

Seesaw is an app that allows teachers to set activities for the children to complete. Children can complete/respond to activities, post to their journal and view class announcements. Children do not see the work of any other child in the class.

The app will allow the children to upload files or post me pictures or videos of the things they have have been doing.  It was lovely to see some of the children’s work through emails and Facebook this week and this is another way we will be able to keep in touch.

Each child has their own unique access code which will be sent out to parents some time tomorrow.

To use Seesaw:

  1. Install the seesaw class app OR go to https://web.seesaw.me on a computer
  2. Tap “I am a student”
  3. Type in your access code
  4. Post to your journal, respond to activities and read class announcements.
  5. Remember, this code is like a password. Keep it safe!

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
