Thank you for the lovely messages from William and from Felix. You are both keeping very busy and I'm glad you can now ride your bike William.

I would like all Year 2 children to log onto Kids Classroom Secrets and watch a video in the Year 2 section.
This is something we've done at school but some of you still find it tricky.
Here is the title:
Subtraction with 2 Digits Place Value Chart Video Tutorial
Parents: to subtract a larger ones or units number eg number 7 here: 43 - 27, you need to exchange one bundle of 10 sticks into 10 single sticks then the calculation can be done. The video above doesn't go that far.
This video may help:
Spelling hive Wednesday 29.04.20
Well, I know that at least four of us tried the spelling hive this morning but it doesn't work. Let's abandon that and chalk it up to experience! Thanks to Lilly, Billie and Isabelle for trying!
Please continue learning your other spellings on Spelling Shed. You were all give your log in and user name in your packs just before we finished. You need to google Spelling Shed - it is not part of Purple Mash.
If you have lost your log ins then please let me know.
Keep reading and exercising on a daily basis!
Bye for now,
Tuesday April 28th
Spelling Zones - apologies for the children who attempted to play at 10.00 this morning. It turns out that the games I'd set had timed out so I've set 2 games. You need code 430673 for the first game at 10.00 tomorrow and hopefully it will work. Another game is code number 927178. It's a learning curve for me too is all this technology!
THANK YOU to Ollie, Harry, Isabelle, Lilly and Billie for letting me know how they are getting on with Kids Classroom Secrets and other work. Harry - you only need to let me know once a week but it was great to hear what you are all up to!
READING Every day please!!
I think that is it for today,
April 27th 2020
I have put some new spelling words on Spelling Shed for this week. See if you can beat other children in the class at 10.00am every day. Enjoy!
New things to do ideas!
As the messages don't all seem to get through to your parents I will post on here.
Please look at Kids Classroom Secrets. The link is below.
Get your Mummy or Daddy to join as a parent on the green frog section. It is free.
Then choose Year 2 and start at the beginning.
Do at least 1 maths game, 1 grammar game and 1 reading game every day.
You can do more if you'd like!
Enjoy the challenges and let me know what you've done by sending me a message on here. I'll look forward to reading them.
I've added a task about Easter. Don't worry about printing it out just use any paper you have to complete the task. When you've done it drop me a line via the form on the Young Voices page in the school clubs section of the website. Mrs Hartley.
All children have a half-termly homework grid in their homework books. Homework should be returned on a Monday. In addition the children have a weekly spelling test on a Friday, the spellings are sent home on a Friday in their spelling/handwriting folder for children to practice. Please return these completed by Friday.
Children should also read regularly at home, ideally every night. Their reading diary should be signed to show what has been read. Please send reading books into school every day, they will usually be changed daily except for Tuesdays. In addition to reading books children have library books. Our library day is Tuesday.
Thank you for your continued support, I really enjoy marking the children's homework and it is evident that lots of time and effort goes into it.
