Welcome to Year 2
School Closure Updates
29th June, 2020
Dear Year 2,
It’s been great to see lots of children engaging with the online learning on Google Classroom and it’s also been lovely to communicate with you through the messaging system. To view your lessons for this week please go to Google Classroom, tasks will be assigned on a daily basis.
We have noticed that some children handed in their work but nothing was attached. If you have any problems sending in work on Google forms or adding attachments you can email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the school and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can send a direct message to us through Google Classroom.
Please follow the instructions on the Lesson Overview document on Google Classroom and complete the tasks daily as outlined in the document.
If you are struggling to access activities online, remember you also have the packs sent home with you when school closed.
All activities and resources from the past few weeks are available on Google Classroom and by clicking onto the Closure Update posts below.
Online Resources – BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy
Please continue to use the great online resources, BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy. You can still complete daily lessons of English, Maths and a foundation subject or choose to dip in and out of lessons across a variety of subjects.
We appreciate all your efforts and thank you for doing whatever you can, whenever you can and hope to be seeing all of you very soon 🙂
Mrs Kennedy, Mrs Clements, Mrs McDonald and Mrs Wheeler
