Hi Year 2,

It was so lovely to see some of you in school this week. I hope you had a good time. This is our last week of home learning before the Summer holidays. Well done for all your hard work. You have been a fantastic class to teach and I know you will all do very well in year 3. Mrs Hepplewhite is very excited for September!

Our home learning timetable for this final week includes the following:

- Three maths activities
- Three writing activities
- One reading activity
- One phonics activity
- A variety of three other summer themed activities.

All of the activities have been scheduled for Monday on the Google Classroom so that you can work through them at your own speed during the week, completing as many or as few as you wish.

I hope you all have a lovely Summer break and I will see you all in September.
Please feel free to share what you have been up to and keep in touch via Google Classroom.

Hi Year 2,

Firstly, I hope you are all well and I would like to thank you for all your hard work. You are all doing brilliantly with your learning in school and at home. I hope you have all had an enjoyable week and had fun with the activities.

For those of you still working from home, I have attached your timetable for next week. All resources will be uploaded to google drive for you to access from Monday morning so you can prepare your learning for the week. Weekly timetables will continue to be published on Google Classroom and our school website on a Friday lunch time for the following week.

I hope you have fun with the activities and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks again for all your hard work,
Mrs. Agar

Hi Year 2,

I hope you are all well and that you enjoyed spending some time outdoors in the lovely sunshine this week.

Underneath, is this week’s timetable which includes a range of different subjects to work through.  Again, I have tried to include practical activities that you can use if you are finding the internet more difficult to access.  All resources will be uploaded to Google Classroom on Monday morning for you to work through at your own pace during the week.

Please do not hesitate to contact if you need support in anyway.

Many thanks,

Mrs. Agar

Update 19.6.20

Hi Year 2,

I hope you're all safe and well!

As we move towards the end of this academic year, we want to help prepare you, as best we can, towards moving into Year 3. Transition packs are ready to be collected from school by your parents/carers. Each file contains the following:

  • a letter from the staff members that you will be working with, sharing some information about themselves – hopefully this might help get to know them a bit better.
  • a sheet in which we would like you to add information about yourself; It would be great to find out a bit more about you.
  • a history homework project for you to complete during the summer holiday
  • additional Maths and English activities, should you wish to complete during the holidays, with a blank exercise book

Our home learning timetable this week includes a mixture of maths, writing, reading and spelling as well as some transition activities.

If you are accessing Google Classroom, all of the activities have been scheduled for Monday so that you can work through them at your own speed during the week, completing as many or as few as you wish. As always I have tried to include a range of practical activities that do not need additional resources.

Please feel free to upload pictures of any of the activities you have completed.

Have a lovely weekend!
Mrs Agar

Update 12.6.20

Hi Year 2,

As you know, around this time of year at school, we usually move away from our regular timetable for a week and concentrate just on our health.  In the past we have worked with healthy eating chefs, completed a sponsored run-a-mile; competed with our friends in sports days; worked with the LAF (lifestyle and fitness) team and had the opportunity to work with a range of different coaches on various sports. We would still like to give you the opportunity to have a go at a some of these from home.

Our health and wellbeing timetable will take the form of a ‘menu’ with a range of P.E, art, DT, cookery, reading and writing activities all centred around staying well mentally and physically. Again, you can complete as many or as few as possible and work with any siblings from different year groups. Many of the activities are practical but we have still included some resources on Google Classroom that might help you should you wish to use them.

 It would be lovely to hear how you have managed and great to see any photographs that you might want to upload. I hope you enjoy it!

Mrs Agar

Update 5.6.20

Hello,

I hope you're all safe and well! Well done for completing another week!

I have attached next week's timetable below (WB 8.6.20). Please feel free to adapt it as you see fit and if you have any questions you can contact me through the Stream on Google Classroom or via the school's number or email address.

Enjoy the weekend!
Mrs Agar

Update 29.5.20
 
Hi Year 2!
 
I hope you've all been enjoying the lovely weather we've had and that you've had a relaxing week with your family! If any of you have completed the Daily Mile at Home feel free to share any images you took.
 
I have attached the weekly timetable below for the week beginning 1st June. Once again this is just a guideline, you do not need to complete all the tasks and you may adapt them as you wish. I hope you enjoy them!
Have a great weekend!
Mrs Agar

Update 22.5.20

Hi Year 2!

We have made it to half term! Well done to everyone for their fantastic work over the last 5 weeks!

Since it is half term, we thought that we would give you a bit of a break from our usual timetable! Instead, we have offered you a P.E challenge that you might want to have a go at. We usually have our ‘Run a Mile Week’ in school this term so it might be nice to have a go at this at home. The ‘Daily Mile at Home’ is a fun and easy way to keep fit and maintain good health and wellbeing for you and your family. During each part of the week, you are offered a different challenge when running your mile to add an extra bit of fun! I would love to see pictures of these if you decide to take part!

If you wish, feel free to access the other online resources that are available such as Timestable Rockstars, Numbots and Oxford Owl reading throughout the week.

We will continue with our regular home learning timetable from 1st June.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a lovely, well deserved week off relaxing with your families and making lots of new memories. Fingers crossed the nice weather continues too!

Have fun and stay safe!
Mrs Agar

Update 15.5.20

Hello everyone,

Can you believe we have nearly made it through a whole half term working from home? You should all be very proud (parents and carers included!) for the hard work you have put in under the challenging circumstances. It has been a delight to see what you have been up to and working on at home. Feel free to use the Stream on Google Classroom to comment on each other's posts too so you can keep in touch with friends!

Below is the timetable for the week beginning 18th May. Once again I hope you enjoy the activities included and find them useful in supporting your learning.

Enjoy the weekend!
Mrs Agar

Update 8.5.20

Hello Year 2,

 

Happy V.E Day anniversary!

75 years ago to the day, peace one again prevailed in Europe. Today, we have a bank holiday to celebrate and remember those who fought so bravely during the Second World War. V.E Day, which stands for Victory in Europe Day, was the day on which allied forces announced the surrender of Germany in Europe on May 8th, 1945.

You may now be at home due to the Coronavirus outbreak, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a weekend of celebrations to mark this special moment in history. There are plenty of ways you can still get involved in the big day, from hosting a special VE Day celebrations picnic or afternoon tea with your household to decorating the house with flags and bunting. I hope you enjoy celebrating VE Day today and I would love to see what you have done to commemorate this special event so if you wish, please share them on Google Classroom.

 

On another note, it was great speaking with families again this week and I was so pleased to hear you're all doing well. I hope since our conversations many of you have managed to access www.oxfordowl.co.uk to support your reading from home. If there are any further questions or queries about this feel free to contact myself either on here, by emailing the school on blackfell.primary@schools.sunderland.gov.uk or by calling the school directly.

 

I have attached next week's timetable (WB 11.5.20) with suggested activities. Remember not all activities need to be completed as this is just a guide. Activities can be adapted too to make them simpler or more challenging. The most important thing is you're safe and taking care of one another.

 

I hope you all have a lovely, long weekend!
Mrs Agar

Update 1.5.20

 

Hello!

I hope you're all keeping safe and well and are enjoying the different tasks and activities being shared.

 

VE Day

As you may notice on the timetable attached for the week beginning 4.5.20, we have left Friday open to complete activities linking with VE Day. Had we been at school, we would have been celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE Day (the end of World War 2) by taking part in special events and activities. As this is not possible we have prepared a range of activities (in an additional document below) to help you celebrate this special day at home.

Reading

We appreciate that many of you may have completed the reading books you were sent home. Fortunately, one of our reading schemes, Oxford Owl, have released many of their books as free e-books that can be read at home on tablets, laptops or computers. In order to access these books, you need to follow this link to create a log in. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/user/sign_up.html

Once you have verified your email address you will be able to view the free e-book library and the books available. To find your child's level, click on Levels then Oxford Level. I will be in touch next week (week beginning 4.5.20) to tell you which Oxford Level books your child should be reading. You can make a note of the book and pages your child has read in their reading diary as you would for school.

Important Contact Note: 
For confidentiality, please contact school via telephone or from your own personal e-mail account to blackfell.primary@schools.sunderland.gov.uk as Google Classroom is an open forum and designed to assist children and parents with work at home. Any messages left there are not private. 

 

I look forward to speaking with you all next week and seeing more of your hard work.

Hello,

I hope everyone is well and has had a relaxing Easter. I have loved seeing the work you've shared so if you wish please continue to share what you are up to at home.

Here is another suggested timetable of different ideas and activities for you to use. Once again there are a range of activities on Google Drive as well as some practical activities which you can adapt. Remember the main thing we are asking you to do during this time is to stay safe and take care of each other so don’t worry if you do not complete every task. You may also continue to access Purple Mash, Timestables Rockstars and Numbots at your leisure.

I hope you enjoy this week's activities!

Update 3.4.20

I hope everyone is well and has managed to access the resources on Google Classroom without too many problems. Thank you for your continued support during this time. We have compiled some fun, hands-on Easter activities for you to have a go at during the Easter holidays if you wish. There is a huge variety of activities and although some have been designed with year groups in mind, any of them can be completed by children regardless of year group. Please take some time to unwind and relax. If you do feel like trying some of these activities, any additional resources you may need are numbered and uploaded on Google Classroom. I would love to see some photos of your creations if you make anything (you can post these directly on the Google Classroom 'Stream' or onto the assignments set in classwork). We hope you have a lovely Easter break with your families. 


A new timetable of suggested activities will be posted for the first week back after the holidays. Children can still use Google Classroom and the blog on Purple Mash to keep in touch with me and each other. 

Many thanks, 

Mrs Agar

Good afternoon everyone! We hope that you are all staying safe and at home as much as you can. These are extraordinary times and all we can do is do our best to deal with them calmly, professionally, with good humour when we can and determination that we will get through this together. We sent home learning packs with the children last week with tasks that they could complete at home. We will be posting a weekly overview of some tasks that your child can do at home. 

These are suggestions for your child and they can do as few or as many as they wish.

We have also provided further resources for your child using Google classroom.

To log in to the classroom please follow the instructions below.

Cameron and his brother Graysen have been very busy at home over the last two weeks so they sent us these pictures of the fantastic crafts they've produced! Well done, boys - it looks like you had a lot of fun making these!

Updated: 23.3.20

Hi everyone!

I've been thinking of you over the weekend and I  hope you're all safe and well. It's great to see that some of you have already been on Times Tables Rockstars and on Purple Mash. Remember you can access all the games and resources on Purple Mash when you log on at home just as you can in school. Also don't forget if you save any work I can see it too so I will be logging on regularly to see what you have been up to. Feel free to leave a comment when you complete your '2dos' and I can send a reply back to you too. I look forward to reading them!
