New Year 2 – Archive 18/05

Year 2 home learning support for week commencing 18/05/2020

We have now reached the final week of the first summer term. For the week beginning Monday 25th May I would ask parents to take a rest from the school work. Your child will need the opportunity to recharge and pursue other interests outside schooling. It will also give them the opportunity to reflect on areas that they have been most successful with and others that have presented challenges.

Your child should be able to complete the work on paper. There is no expectation to printout the work, use the phone/ tablet/ computer to view the work.

Miss Harwood would love to know how her class are getting on with their home learning. Parents are very welcome to send photos or videos of their child at work (or their work), also if you need a little help then the class teachers are there to guide you. Have a look at BBC Bitesize, where parents can find professionally produced videos to support their home learning (should you require them).

Whole school assemblies will be available on the school website this week. Monday and Thursday will be the final parts to the ‘Amazing Flowerpot’ story and on Wednesday will be children’s celebration assembly.

If you have any photos or video clips that your child would like to share in the celebration assembly then please email to headteacher@burghfield.w-berks.sch.uk (with a brief explanation). Or you child may just wish to light the 3 wicks (candles).

(previous weeks’ work can be found at the bottom of the menu on the right)

 

To help support your child at home:

  • give them dedicated times for their learning (children like routines)
  • make sure your child has regular agreed breaks from work (children like routines)
  • support your child with their home learning, talking about the learning helps children understand
  • have consequences, your child does need to do home learning (children like to know the boundaries)
  • Please remember home learning does not have to be at a table with pen/ pencil in hand.
  • Take the opportunity to teach your child new skills, they may be art/ craft, gardening cooking, painting, DIY (but in a very safe environment), games (including board games).
  • Children also enjoy leading their own learning, let your child choose a topic that interests them.

Please remember though children also like time to themselves, just like adults. Downtime for many children (when they come home from school) may have been XBOX, Playstation or other computer based games. Help your child with their Emotional Wellbeing- talk to them, play with them, help them with their home learning.

Together we can do this.

Please stay safe and follow the Government advice.
