Hello Year 2 from Miss Writer
** WE ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED**
Dear Children of Year 2:
WOW! Some of you have earned Mathletics certificates! Well done for your hard work. In the Mathletics area there is now a MATHLETICS HALL OF FAME and I will write down the children who earn certificates each month. Also, if you can't find your Mathletics password, I have saved them there too.
What can you do at home now? Click on the pictures below.
Remember you have logins for Lexia, Mathletics and Times Tables Rockstars. Read lots and lots. Draw pictures. Paint pictures. Make things.
I miss you and I am thinking about you every day.
I hope you are all well. As school will be closed for the unforeseeable future, the class page will now be our main point of contact.
Please ensure your child knows how to spell all Year 1 and 2 common exception words.
These are the prayers that we say in class
Father in heaven You love me.
You are with me night and day.
I want to love You always,
In all I do and say.
I'll try to please You Father.
Bless me through the day.
Before Lunch Prayer
Bless us O Lord as we sit together.
Bless the food we eat today.
Bless the hands that made the food.
Bless us O Lord.
End of Day/Night Prayer
God our Father, I come to say, thank you for your love today.
Thank you for my family and all the friends you give to me.
Guard me in the dark of night and in the morning send your light.
Our Class Mascot
My name is Moji the meerkat. I have decided to stay in Miss Writer's classroom whilst you are all at home. I will be taking care of Herod, the smart board, and everything else in the room. Enjoy your time at home and do lots of fun things. I look forward to hearing about your adventures at home when you return to school. Oh! Make sure you write a diary because I REALLY want to hear about what you have all been doing. Maybe you can share something funny that happened in the day. Maybe you can tell me how you feel. I really LOVE descriptions of what things look like, how they smelt, what they feel like. I won't get to see what's going on in your home, so please write it down and share it with me. I also love lots of drawings!
I promise I will behave myself at school and use my manners and I won't eat too many nuts!
The children have reading books and should be reading for about 10-20 minutes a day. Please encourage them to read by making it part of their daily routine. It is really helpful to question them about what they have read to check their understanding.
The children will be read with once a week. This may be in a guided reading session where we will discuss a story and ask questions about the text, for example: why an author may have chosen to use certain language or write in a particular style, to make predictions and inferences. We also ask the children to make links to other books they are reading at home. In addition, the children will read every other week in a one on one setting and change their home reading book.
