07.04.2020 - UPDATE

 

Hello again lovely Year 2s, I hope you are doing well and keeping yourselves safe.  As you know, if you have read the Newsletter, I have been doing a variety of activities to keep myself busy including a little bit of walking.  I thought I would share some of the photos I have been taking in my travels which are below. 

Today, I even saw some beautiful ducklings.  Their mum was really busy trying to keep them all together.  She kept on quacking to call them back but some of them were really mischevious and swam in the opposite direction! 

 

 

 

 

 

These are some large ponds and lakes close by where I live.  What kinds of animals do you think live in these habitats?  Can you research what species of birds, insects, plants, fish or pond creatures you might find lurking about? 

Blog your answers or send me a picture of what you have found.  I will be posting information about the types of wildlife you may find here in a few days. 

 

Look in the science section to learn more about some of the animals that live here. 

 

Take care and keep safe.

1st April 2020 Update. 

Hello lovely Year 2s, 

 

I hope you are all keeping well and have managed the first week and a half of this lock down at home. 

I have been busy doing a bit of homeschooling with my daughter, giving my friends some top tips on teaching maths to their grandchildren, working on my computer and taking walks round the woods and the lake close to my house.  What have you been up to?  Let me know at by writing me a message on email or on the blog at www.coleyblog.net then click in year 2 and sign in with your password. (Your parents/carers got a text with username and password). 

I am even considering learning a new skill, such as sign language, doing a photography course or joining an online fitness class.  Are you learning a new skill?

 

Take care and keep well, 

 

Mrs Marin 

Dear Parents and Carers in Y2, 

 

Here are some activities which hopefully will keep you busy over the next few weeks.  The children have been given a plain yellow book to record any of their learning including any maths' jottings, art work, science, geography, spelling practice, extra homework projects,  annotations and jottings for their writing, etc.  Additionally, they also have a lined book which they can use for any extra writing activities they'd like to do. 

 

If your child is using the internet for any of the activities below, please ensure they are supervised. 

 

We would recommend that the children get a good mixture of fun activities, fresh air and exploration and formal learning times.  Balance is the key, together with little and often.  

 

Have lots of fun, do your best, keep well and see you soon. 

 

Mrs Marin
