  • This is the final week of HOME LEARNING before everyone returns to school on Monday 8th March.  “Well done” and “thank you” to everyone for all your hard work while you have been learning at home.  We look forward to seeing you back in school next Monday!

Our final week of home learning has arrived!  We are all looking forward to having all of the children back in school next week!  For our last week we will be continuing with shape which we will finish when we are back in school.  In English we will be writing our own WANTED poster for the demon Ravanna using our adjectives and similes from last week to help us describe him.  Next week will be our final week on the Rama and Sita story, where we will be writing our own versions using our knowledge of the plot from our work at home and you get to show off all you have learned in school! We also have been challenged to a Times Table Rockstars tournament by Year3 – I know we can win so make sure we play this week!! All the best, Mr. Adams

Welcome back Year 2!  I hope that you had a lovely half term break and are ready for another week of learning!  This week we will be beginning a new Indian story all about Rama and Sita.  This is a very famous Hindu story, which celebrates the festival of light – I know that you will enjoy it!  In maths, we will be moving onto shape and we will be continuing to explore the little village of Chembakoli in geography and other aspects of Indian culture in Design Technology.  I cannot wait to see all of your hard work on Seesaw!  For Wednesday’s Zoom session, we will be playing a game of science bingo – so bring a pen and paper with you!  All the best, Mr. Adams

  • Welcome to the final week of this half term – we have finally made it! J  This week we will be completing our work on statistics ready to start our new topic of shape after half term.  We will also be finishing our work on the traditional Indian tale of “The Monkey’s Heart” where I would like you to write an extended piece in character as the crocodile persuading the monkey to come down off the tree – I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
  • Our home learning display is almost finished in school and I am so pleased with how it looks!  I will be taking a photograph of it when it is finished for you all to see on Seesaw!  Finally, have a wonderful break and I am looking forward to having us all back in school together!  Mr. Adams

Welcome to another week of home learning Year 2!  As I mentioned in our class Zoom session on Friday, I am just amazed every week by all of the hard work you are putting into your work – it really does make me a very proud teacher!  This week I have been treated to all of your amazing videos of you reading, waffles and ice-cream for breakfast as a treat (well done Harry!), walks in nature, piano playing, and all of the fantastic work you have also been completing!  Thank you so so much for all of your hard work!

Don’t’ forget … BIG CAT Books have made a number of reading books (school reading scheme books) from levels Pink (Reception) to Lime (Y2/3) available online (as they did last year).  Many of the books have audio, key word lists, some animation, a printable worksheet and teacher notes to support a discussion of the book.  To access the books, follow this link  Big Cat Books.  You will need the username  parents@harpercollins.co.uk  and the password Parents!21.  If you do not know the level at which your child is reading, please contact your child’s class teacher via SEESAW or email.

Welcome to our week four of home learning!  I have loved seeing all of your wonderful pictures, videos and work you have been uploading to Seesaw.  Mrs. Whittle has been busy this week getting our home learning display ready, which I am hoping to be sharing with you very soon!  If you have yet to send a picture in of you ‘doing’ the work then please do try to so we have at least one picture of everyone on our wall!  This week we will be writing our own poetry based on Elephant Dance using the similes we created last week.  I will also be posting a couple of lesson videos to Seesaw and if you have anything extra you feel I could help with then please let me know! All the best, Mr. Adams

  • When uploading your work to SEESAW, please place the work (single sheet) as flat as possible and maximise the view of the full sheet in the camera so that the image of your work is a large as possible for the teacher to see it clearly.

Welcome to our week three of home learning Year 2.  For another week, I have been amazed by all of the hard work, effort and participation you have shown in your studies – you should all be so proud!  Thank you to parents who have already uploaded ‘live pictures’ of their children working.  These will be printed and added to our home learning display in our corridor for the children to see when they return.  If you are yet to do so, do not worry but I would love to have at least one or two pictures of every child on display.  I have pre-recorded some of this week’s lessons and will be uploading these to Seesaw on the relevant day.  I hope you are all keeping well – have a great week!

  • Please note that the weekly plans for Years 1 – 6 are now two pages.  These gives the teacher a little more space to write more about each task for each day.  
  • Some (but not all) of the resources you need have been provided in the printed packs which are available from collection from school.
  • Some printed materials are not uploaded to the website – you will need the printed version to complete the task.
  • PE with Joe (Wicks) starts again this week – Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays at 9.00am
  • When writing answers on a worksheet to be uploaded to SEESAW, please write clearly and in black or blue ink pen or with a dark pencil mark.  Please avoid pencil crayons and gel pens as they are not clear.
  • When uploading your work to SEESAW, please place the work (single sheet) as flat as possible and maximise the view of the full sheet in the camera so that the image of your work is a large as possible for the teacher to see it clearly.

Hi Year 2!  Welcome to our second week of home learning!  Thank you all so much for uploading all of your fantastic work onto Seesaw this past week.  I have loved seeing all of your wonderful multiplication work and especially hearing all about your Christmas news!  A big thank you to everyone (grown-ups included) as we had a full class on our Zoom meeting on Friday – it was so lovely to see all of us back together again and your smiley faces!  I look forward to many more to come!

Welcome back! (Albeit slightly different to our usual correspondence!)  I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and managed to eat their way through as many Christmas treats as possible! With regards to school work moving forward, I am going to try and keep some elements of teaching similar to what the children are used to so we will be following the White Rose scheme of work for Mathematics, which also provides parents and children with videos to support their understanding before completing the work.  I suggest that the videos are watched by all before attempting the worksheet and feel free to pause and complete the task as the video is playing.  We will be starting our new topic of India next week where I have some wonderful texts for the children to explore in English!

Any questions please contact me through the e-mail y2teacher@northenden.manchester.sch.uk and I will aim to respond to e-mails during school hours.  Good luck and stay safe – let the children know I am missing them lots and look forward to seeing them all again!  Please upload any completed work or videos to SeeSaw – I look forward to seeing them all and I will be in touch regarding pre-recorded lessons and Zoom updates later this week!!
