Hello to all of 2ML and their families!
Please scroll down below to find today's maths lesson (10.11) and our daily lessons from tomorrow (11.11). All children have been given a purple exercise book for them to record their work in.
From tomorrow, (11.11) I will be posting a daily English, maths and phonics lesson for all of the children to access. There will also be an afternoon lesson based around our foundation skills curriculum. Our English lessons will be based on our class book Orion and the Dark which you can listen to on Youtube. I have included a link to this below. Daily maths lessons will have an Independent task A (usually easier) and an Independent task B (more challenging). Most children will be able to do Task A and some of you will also be able to complete Task B each day too so please challenge yourselves children if you can! There will also be some other challenge activities for some lessons - these can be done as an additional part of your child's learning each day but it is not essential.
If you have any questions at all or simply want some advice, then please do not hesitate to contact me via Year2wls@welearn365.com I will be monitoring this regularly during the school day and will get back to you as soon as possible.
All children can access phonics bug online to find digital books to read. There is also a link below for this but you will need to use your child's log in details. Please ask if you do not have them. Children who are reading AR books and quizzing in school can access this through the link below. They will have access to quiz during school hours. Again, please email if you need log in details re-issuing.
Children - please do email me photos of your work so that I can see how you are getting on and I will give you GEMS for all of your efforts. I will add any GEMS to our chart in school.
I hope that you all keep safe and well and enjoy our home learning during this period.
Take care
Mrs May.

Autumn B Week 2 Previous Learning 9.11.20-13.11.20
Weekly spelling and phonics home learning in Y2
From Wednesday 30th September, all children will be bringing home a spelling home learning book. A weekly page will be set here on the website and it is expected that all children should try to complete the activity during the week. The activity can be marked by an adult or older sibling or relative using the answers at the back of the book. It would be really beneficial if the children could discuss any mistakes they have made and correct them in a different colour.
These books should remain at home until we request that they are brought into school. 
If you have any questions, or require further advice then please send us an email.
Wednesday 30th September - complete pages 2-3 Words ending in y
Wednesday 7th October - complete pages 4-5 Short vowel sounds
Wednesday 12th October - complete pages 6-7 or and ur
Wednesday 19th October - complete pages 8-9 soft c
Wednesday 4th November - complete pages 10-11 soft g
PLEASE CONTINUE WORKING THROUGH THE BOOK BY COMPLETING A DOUBLE PAGE EACH WEEK. IF YOU HAVE A PHONICS QUICK CHECK BOOK, THEN PLEASE ALSO COMPLETE A DOUBLE PAGE EACH WEEK OR MORE IF YOU WANT TOO!
