Remote Learning in Year 2

 Our aim at Greenwood is to provide quality learning for children both at home  and at school. 

Each week, your child's class teachers will be uploading a weekly remote learning timetable (similar to the ones that were uploaded during lockdown) to provide children who are isolating at home with the best possible teaching and learning resources to support their continued learning at home. 

These weekly timetables, powerpoints, videos and resources will also enable you to see what we are doing in class and support your child with any additional learning that you may feel they need. At the very least, you will be aware of our learning in school and what your child is doing on a day to day basis. 

 Please note

This is not additional learning for children who are already in school daily, unless you feel that your child would benefit from completing any of these activities.  This is primarily for children who are isolating at home and are not able to come to school.

What does school look like now for our children?

School does look a little different to what your children are used to. 

However, our staff have worked exceptionally hard to try and ensure that familiar things are around your children and that our classroom environments are engaging, bright and learning focussed.

How to support your child at home

Reading

1. Read for 5-10 minutes a day

2. Encourage children to use phoneme knowledge to sound out words they find difficult 

3. Ask children understanding questions about their text-who is the main character? What is the setting? Why did that character choose to do that and what were the consequences?

Writing

1. Make writing purposeful-why have they been asked to write? What should the outcome be of that piece of writing? 

2. Encourage the use of joining lines. Children should be attempting to start letters using joining lines in Year 2.

3. Encourage the use of basic punctuation-capital letters, full stops, finger spaces etc

 

Maths 

1. Play maths games such as timetable questions, mental math addition and subtraction, doubles and halves up to 10

2. Use maths in every day life-shopping, finding change, counting out things for tea time, shape spotting around the house etc MATHS IS EVERYWHERE!

3. Keep up basic number fact work-numbers bonds to 5, 10 and 20. 2, 3, 5 and 10x tables.

 

SPAG 

Spelling, punctuation and grammar

1. Encourage children to write spellings down, look at them, cover them, say them, write them.2. Find interesting ways to remember exception words eg. because-big elephants can always understand small elephants

3. Re-cap use of nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs...what are they? Can you think of examples of when to use them?

 

Phonics 

1. Encourage children to spot familiar sounds in words to help them read at pace 

2. Re-cap unfamiliar sounds regularly and quickly 

3. Find alternative spellings for the same sound...ai/ay/a-e   or   oi/oy
