Thank you so much to all the Year 2 children who joined Miss Seymour's live maths lesson yesterday. We felt very proud of you, not only did you manage to log on to Teams, but we could see that you were all so engaged with your learning.
You are amazing learners Year 2. We hope you enjoyed the lesson.
We must all say a big 'thank you' to Mr Keeley - you might have spotted him on the live yesterday - he has been working very hard behind the scenes to make online learning possible for you all. Thank you Mr Keeley!
If you didn't manage to join yesterday, you can watch a little extract below - and see some of your friends learning. The full lesson is still in Microsoft Teams if you need to catch up on this and today's lesson.
As you are aware, 1GD children and staff are still isolating at home. Please continue to support your children with their learning as much as you can.
Below is a suggested daily timetable so that, where possible, children can follow the same routine as if they were at school - please feel free to adapt this for your family.
Do comment on the blog or email me with any questions you have about the work and to let me know how your children are doing with the tasks and their home learning.
We know how much our children love DOJO rewards, so I will continue to update the board when children complete learning tasks. Please also email to me any photos of other activities or home learning so that I can share them on the blog:
Miss De Sanctis - firstname.lastname@example.org
The children always start their day with a Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) workout. It gets the class awake and active and ready to start their learning.
Today's video is available here.
Below is a timetable you can follow at home and guidance of time to spend on each activity.
Handwriting - 10 minutes Today's letter is f - Practise writing the letter f on some lined paper with a pencil.

We have sent out Purple Mash logins, but please contact me if you don't have yours.
Literacy - 30 minutes Today I would like you to watch the story of Zog again, and talk about how the characters feel and how you know. What clues tell you how they feel?
Then, make a list of feelings adjectives. For example, sad, happy, excited, tired. Finally, write a sentence using the adjectives. For example: Zog is feeling happy. The girl is feeling sad.
