RIDGEWAY Primary School

Year 2-Remote Learning Page

 Please check this page each day for the new learning. Any problems please contact us by email. Mrs Wilkinson will be setting the Maths and Mrs Tingle English and Topic.  

Our Maths learning will follow White Rose, which will consist of a video and linked worksheet. There will be points in the video to stop and do a couple of questions (worksheet on Seesaw). We have used this in class so the children are used to listening to Jim and working in this way - in case remote learning were to happen.   Please read the document below about changes the worksheet on Seesaw.

Phonics / SPaG learning - in class we follow 2 children Kit and Sam on their adventures on Powerpoints. Again the children are familiar with this, we use this as  a reading activity too. We encourage the children to read out the story and answer questions such as - What are the characters thinking? What do they predict will happen next? How do they think the characters are going to react given what we have learnt about them through previous stories?

It would be good to discuss with your child what they have already learnt in previous weeks. A follow up activity may be put on Seesaw to reinforce the learning but sometimes it will just be the Powerpoint, this will follow on each day through the week.

It may be that work is 'sent back'.  If this is the case please read the comments, which should explain where your child has gone wrong.  As we wish to move the children forward in their learning this is one way we can ensure they make progress.  Where children are asked to write sentences please remind them that they should begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop or other appropriate punctuation.  When work is sent back please encourage your child to 'make it even better' and to resubmit it!

We are both available for any general queries and will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Please bear in mind that on some days we will also be teaching in school so a quick response may not be possible. Many thanks for your support and understanding, together we can make this successful, working together to support your wonderful children.

Keep safe

Mrs Tingle & Mrs Wilkinson


Please can you save a straight-sided 2l pop or water bottle for an upcoming science project?  Thank you  WE WILL BE USING THEM ON FRIDAY 22nd JANUARY. 

You will also need scissors, sellotape, a 30cm ruler or a tape measure and a marker pen to write on the bottle. 


STICKERS - As I go through your work I can see some of you have tried extra hard.  If we were in school you would be getting stickers so I am making a record of those children who have won a sticker and, one day soon, I hope, you will get a sticker in school to add to your chart.  If you earn a sticker it will tell you in the comments.   

Monday 18th January

Hi everyone as Mr Wilson said in his letter last week,  Mrs Wilkinson is now working in Rec, so I am full time planning and responding to learning in Year 2. The challenges of the pandemic for us all seem ever changing don't they? So this means any questions send your emails to me. My days in school working with the critical worker children (at the moment, but this does keep changing!) are Wednesday and Friday, so please bear in mind I will not be checking emails as regularly or responding to work as quickly on those days. Any urgent issues on those days please email school and me as the office may read it first, and I can try to help as quickly as possible. You may have noticed previously that Mrs Wilkinson and I tried to cover for each other on the days the other was in school, to respond as quickly as we could.
