Teal Class (Year 2 and Year 3)

Home Learning from 06/01/21

Hello everyone,


Hope you all well and had a wonderful Christmas!


Below is a timetable with suggested activities. Each maths lesson has a link to a Whiterose Leaning Video and the accompanying worksheets can be found in the children's paper packs. For English I have recorded lessons and will update these for the following days learning. If you click on the blue writing, it should take you to the corresponding lesson (fingers crossed).


I have also put in a selection of Topic lessons including Science learning that is carried over from last term and our new History unit, The Great Fire of London. The Great Fire of London will begin next week :)

I haven't over loaded the pack for the first 3 weeks but don't forget there are many different links under the useful home learning links which you will find under the timetables just down the page. I haven't given the children any new spellings but would suggest that children practise the spellings at the front of their 'normal' spelling books  and of course continue to read at home. 


We are hoping to get some session up and running on Teams for the children so we are able to have check ins and group meetings but bear with us as this can take a lot of organising! I am always on the other end of Dojo if there are any problems and will do my best to help in any way I can.


Best Wishes,

Miss Barker

Spellings and Times Tables

In Class 2 Spellings are on a 2 week rotation. They are given out on a Monday for a 'mid way' test on Friday and sent home again for the following week. This is to help the children learn the spelling rules not just the spellings. It would be great if you could go through these with your child to help them learn them.


Times tables are done weekly in class in a 6 minute challenge on a Friday. The children will go through learning all of their times tables. All children have access to TT Rockstars to help them develop their fluency- You will find their user name and password in the front of their spelling books.


This websites also contains some great times tables games to play at home.
