Emergency School Closure

How to support your child at home

Year 2 Parents,

Below you will find weekly planning ideas and suggested activities for home schooling during the Coronavirus enforced school closure. These plans and resources will be updated on a weekly basis throughout the period the school is closed so that you can best support your child's continued learning at home. Planning is themed to allow the entire family to work on similar activities each day. Please work through as much or as little as you have time for, alongside possibly working from home yourself. We suggest either a Maths or a Writing task each day plus at least 10 minutes of Reading. There are a range of additional activities at the end of each plan if you do require extra work. Maths work is separate for each year group and is linked directly to the Year 2 Curriculum we have been studying in school.

Keep safe, healthy and happy smiley

Mrs Rhead

Internet Safety Day

Tuesday 11th February 2020

We spent today learning all about how to keep ourselves safe online. We learnt that the internet is an amazing place but that there are a few things we should all do to protect ourselves while using it. We learnt to...

  • Use an Avatar instead of a photograph of yourself
  • Never give out your personal information (e.g. your name, address, school, date of birth)
  • Be polite and kind to others online - do not bully people
  • Create a good online reputation for yourself - think about how you want others to see you.
  • Know how to use email safely and considerately. Never open an email from someone you don't know.
  • Understand how to be safe when watching videos online. Ask an adult if it is suitable for you.
  • Know how to safely use search engines to find accurate information.

 

If you would like to further explore internet safety at home with your child, have a look at these videos that we have used at school:
