Dear Parents/carers

This is week 2 of home learning and I hope you are all feeling well. I completely understand that home-schooling is not ideal and can prove to sometimes be difficult, please know we are here as a school family to support you. Your and your child’s health and wellbeing are our first priority. The children have already missed so much school, so it is very important that we continue with our learning journey.

I am trying different ideas to support you and give you a number of options to submit your child’s work so that I can help. I will be putting on daily activities for your child to complete with your support on our class page.

Ways for you to submit your child’s work

Using our class page, you can access your child’s work and either print off the sheets or simply write the answers on paper or you could type the answers on the downloaded sheets (I recognise this is not always possible on some of the sheets but a word document would be fine). This could then be photographed and sent to me using our class email or if you have typed the answers you could just email the sheet back to me.  I will then be able to give feedback.

Alternatively, you can complete the activity using the home learning tab this is a similar process to the class email.

As another option and I think possibly, an easier option is to use Purple Mash. I have created templates for your child to record their answers for all daily activities.

The class email Year2@st-marymagdalens.lancs.sch.uk. Please ask any question and send your child’s work (if you can) for me to check and give feedback if necessary.

All children in class have been assessed and given IDL access which has tailored English and maths lessons.

If you are unsure of your child's username and password please email or call school. 

I will also be setting work on purple mash.

RE- Week 2 The Ten Lepers Luke 17:1-37 43 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers - 43 Jesus Heals Ten Lepers - YouTube Watch from 1 min 9 seconds Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!" 14 When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him-and he was a Samaritan. 17Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?" 19Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well."

Why do you think it was important to say thank you?

Do you always say thank you?

What do you think their life was like before and after they were healed?

Why do you think Jesus stopped to help?

Write a thank you letter from one of the lepers to Jesus.

Tapestry

The Year 2 team are very excited about intoducing 'Tapestry' this term which I would very much like to use as part of home learning, however I require consent from parents to use this option. 

'Tapestry' is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Year 2 curriculum, to build up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us. It is also an extemely effective platform to help us support both yourself and your child's learning at home, which is particularly benefical in the current situation.

Please view below 'Tapestry Letter to Parents'.

If you have not yet received a log in for 'Tapestry', please email me with your child's name, your name, your email address and clearly state your permission to use 'Tapestry' as a secure online learning journal for your child. 

Thank you 

Mrs K Taylor and Mrs Yates.
