Class 2 Parent information March 20.03.2020

Friday 20th March

Dear Class 2 Parents,


The Government’s decision to close school from this Friday has given us very little time to prepare home learning for your child.  I intend to use School360 as the main means of setting work for your child.  This is a new resource, which I received a 20 minute webinar training for last night, so please be patient as I get to grips with it!  Please see separate letter for login information.


In the meantime, please find enclosed: 


‘Snappy Maths’ times tables practise sheets.  We do one of these most days. The usual routine is 5 minutes practise using ‘flip-it cards’, 10 minutes on times tables apps, then complete the Mad Maths Minutes sheet (MMM), against the clock.  Use times tables grid to self mark, make corrections and practise any they got wrong. 


White Rose Maths sheets

These are completed after a maths input.  I am currently looking for the best way to share this input.  For the time being, please complete as much as possible and email me with any questions or queries.  One sheet usually takes one to two lessons, depending on the content and child’s age.


English

Using details on Kids Classroom Secrets letter, please log in to https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/

Please complete a Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) activity from your child’s Year Group menu and a Reading activity.


Afternoon activities


Please log in to  https://school360.co.uk/ using your Username and Password.  See separate letter for log in instructions.


Design your avatar - get your child to click on their avatar to customise their look and choose a pet.


Click on Resources and select ‘Busy Things’.  Year 2 children choose from Key Stage 1 activities, Year 3 and Year 4 choose from Key Stage 2.


There are lots of great ideas for outdoor activities here  https://themuddypuddleteacher.co.uk/ and you can currently access resources for free with a 30 day trial.


For wet days, https://www.gonoodle.com/ has a wide range of activities from calming down to getting rid of excess energy!


I will be in touch next week and you can get in touch by phone or email : 01434 681572 glenda.glenwright@chollerton.northumberland.sch.uk 


These are strange and unusual times for us all.  Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we can all be back together at school and back to normal.  In the meantime, please keep in touch and stay safe.
