Year 2 - Sydney Class

Welcome to Sydney Class

Year 2 Home Learning Summer 2020

Hello to our wonderful Sydney Class!

We hope that you are all well and enjoying this break from school as much as you can. This is a good opportunity to keep up to date with reading, writing (learning some spellings in sentences) and basic maths skills like adding, taking away, multiplication and division facts for 2, 5 and 10 times tables, then your 3 and 4 times tables.

 

Don't forget to exercise your body as well as your brain!! Remember you can access Cosmic Kids yoga sessions on Youtube. I'm sure you already know that Joe Wicks, the fitness instructor is hosting live workouts on Youtube at 9am every week day. Plus there are Science sessions with Maddie Moate from 11 am, as well as dance lessons from Strictly's Oti Mabuse from 11.30 am. There's loads you can do to have fun and keep busy. Try some new art skills or ask your family if you can help them bake something! 

 

We are sure that you are all being the best versions of yourselves, behaving well and helping your family wherever you can. As this is a difficult time we know that you will need to be resilient, (showing that you can face a challenge and carry on) and we are proud of you all.

 

Stay safe Sydney Class, we miss you!

                         Mrs Tikare and Mrs Watson

 

You could have your work featured on our gallery! If you would like to send us pictures of your wonderful projects, or have any questions, please contact us on year1and2jubileeteachers@gmail.com

Hi our wonderful Sydney class,

WOW!! This is our last week, how has that happened? We are so sad that we have not been able to see you since March and have missed our final week together but we know you have been working hard at home and staying safe.

We hope you are all still well and continue to enjoy spending time with your family. We can't believe that when you come back in September you will be in year 3, that is crazy!

During the holidays make sure you rest and prepare for September. Try to continue reading and practising your handwriting, times tables and spellings as and when you can. Also make sure you have some fun and make lots of memories. 

For the last week of home learning keep up all the good work. Remember to send it to us so we can see your last lot of work from year 2. It is always a pleasure to hear from you! We love to see your work and like to post your pictures up on the Gallery pages. You can catch us on the following:

year1and2jubileeteachers@gmail.com

Have the best summer, stay safe and we hope to see you all very soon.

We have loved teaching you Sydney class and wish it could have been different but keeping you all safe was our top priority.

Sending you all the biggest virtual hugs and high fives for all the amazing work you have done in the last 16 weeks and throughout year 2.

Much love,

Mrs Tikare and Mrs Watson

Hi again, to our wonderful Sydney Class children and parents! 

Hopefully this message finds you all well and able to enjoy some of our summer weather. We always say it but we do genuinely miss seeing you all and the normal routines which go along with that. With the holidays  ahead we know it will be great to relax and have a well-earned rest, but it will still be important to keep up regular reading, along with some basic mental maths practice, in readiness for next academic year. Hopefully we will all return in September, fully refreshed and ready for all the learning ahead. In the remaining days ahead keep up all the good work. Remember to send it to us so we can see how you are doing. It is always a pleasure to hear from you! Of course we love to see your work and like to post your pictures up on the Gallery pages. You can catch us on the following:

Keep yourselves and others safe. Big hugs, as ever! Take care,

Hi Sydney class!

How are you all doing? We are missing you all so much and cannot wait to see you all again soon. What have you been up to? We would love to hear from you via the teacher email and keep remembering to send us your amazing work you have been doing at home. Another week has passed and we hope you have been behaving for your mums and dads. Did you do anything nice for father's day last Sunday? Are any of your brothers/ sisters back at school yet? Take care, look after each other and keep smiling.

We are really looking forward to seeing and hearing from you all soon. 

All our love and virtual high fives,

Hi Everyone!

It's us again! We cannot believe another week has passed without seeing your lovely, smiling faces in school. Obviously the only way we can look at it is that we are a week closer to normality returning and happily doing some of the things we used to do. Obviously we want to remind you to look after yourselves; take regular exercise, maintain the social distance as advised, try to complete the tasks as far as you can, enjoy yourselves too, but take care in the sun as this week ahead is set to be very warm. I'm sure all of these things will help us with the remaining weeks of home learning ahead. Don't forget that we love to hear from you and are pleased to post some great examples of your work. We hope that you are all doing well. As ever, we are sending big hugs and a huge thumbs up for the resilience you and your families have shown throughout this time of the 'new normal,'

Take care,    yes

love from

Hi Again... 

to our wonderful, Sydney Class pupils and parents! We hope that you continue to stay safe and well, and that you are managing to have some fun too!

Throughout the year, we will be learning lots and having so much fun together. We know you will impress us with your outstanding attitudes to learning this year. This is our class page where we will post different pieces of your work/achievements from lots of different subjects. When you feel proud of something, please let us know, so that we can post it onto our page. Remember to keep visiting throughout the year to explore some of the hard work that you have completed. On our page, you can also see what we are going to be learning about in our class newsletter.

This year we have been doing a 'Daily Mile' where we all go outside onto the playground each day and keep up our activity and fitness levels by walking around as a class.

 

In art this half term we have been doing sketches based on our topic 'Fire, Fire, Burning Bright' which is linked to The Great Fire of London. We have used pencils, pastels and charcoal to create our own scenes. We have also created sketches based on london now and compared the similarities and differences.

For part of Chinese New year we had a special Chinese New year dance workshop where we were taught about the different Chinese zodiac animals and learnt some Chinese dancing. We were also able to see and try on some Chinese dragon costumes and use Chinese fans.

In computing this half term we have been covering the topic 'We are astronauts'. We have been looking at algorithms and using the programme Splat to create a sprite and give it movement, actions, sound and control.

We attended a special assembly this half term to remind us how to keep healthy. As well as the more obvious reminders like eating and drinking healthily, Pascale who delivered the assembly spoke to us about how to keep your mind healthy too. In order to have a good level of general well-being we found out that we need to eat healthily, exercise regularly, get a good night's sleep, not have too much screen time and discuss negative emotions so we can feel content within ourselves.
Recently we have spent time perfecting our Christmas songs, learning our lines and developing our acting skills. We have worked very hard to know when we need to deliver our lines by listening to everyone else. Some of us are also dancing! We hope everyone enjoys the performance!
As part of our English and topic work, ('Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner!') we have been reading 'A Bear Called Paddington,' by Michael Bond. As part of our initial engagement process with the book we made bread in D.T. The bread was thoroughly enjoyable with marmalade on top, as eaten by Paddington. This also allowed us to read and write instructions, along with opportunities to measure quantities and scientific discussion about the changes in properties along the way.
As part of Remembrance Day and Anti-Bullying Week, (which was covered in SMSC and History,) we were lucky enough to experience a workshop about a soldier in the First World War. We found out how difficult life would've been in the trenches. It was important for us to learn about how to try to prevent conflict in the future. Although it was a serious subject we still had some fun following drill instructions and holding the enormous, wooden rifle! 

An external company called 'Splatz' came in to teach the children circus skills and support our cross curricular learning.

Year two pupils have been trained in basic first aid by an external agency. Here are some pictures of the training.

During our recent challenge and support day year two children planned and created their own circus equipment. They used a range of materials and discussed the most efficient ways to join these materials. They also evaluated their work and discussed how these skills might be used in the real world.

As part of year twos 'The Circus is Coming to Town' topic, children have independently created their own circus tents for their homework.
