Year 2 Home Learning Tuesday 12th January

Home Learning Letter – Year 2

WB 11.1.21

Dear Parents/Carers,

Whilst learning from home, there will be a suggested timetable of activities for the children to complete each day. These are the activities that children would have completed if they were in school. We understand that learning from home looks different for each family, and so please use the timetable to suit your family. Please also encourage the children to keep active during this time – this may be by using ‘Just Dance’ videos or games in the house.

This post outlines work for Tuesday 12th January­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­. Further guidance for the week will be uploaded in due course. When completing tasks, children can either do so electronically (via Microsoft PowerPoint or Word) or by recording work on separate sheets of paper or a notepad.

TEAMS ASSIGNMENTS

We will be setting two assignments via Teams a week, these tasks must be completed and submitted for feedback. If you have any technical issues when using Teams please contact the school office for support.

This week the assignments will scheduled for a Thursday (Literacy) and a Friday (DT). As there are food resources needed for DT, the assignment will be ‘live’ from 1pm on Tuesday.
