This half term we are learning about Plants. When you are next in the supermarket please could you buy a packet of beans to plant and if possible a bulb so that we can look at the differences and watch them grow.

Happy Friday!!!! and Happy New Year (in Chinese) Don't forget Star of the Week Assembly at 2pm!!

Today is an opportunity for you to catch up on any learning and try to clear any Seesaw tasks. I have put a Tangram activity for you to try on Seesaw for Maths https://mathigon.org/tangram this is the link too, there are pictures for you to try and make using the shapes at the bottom of the screen, take a screenshot and upload it for me to see, if you can.

The main thing today is to go onto Adobe Spark and think about how you would like to show your learning about Chinese New Year. I have put some ideas on Seesaw for you but this list is by no means all the ideas. Have another look at Millie's dragon work - the link is on Tuesday to remind you what Adobe Spark can do. If you could send me your ideas today just rough notes, but take your time with the video anytime over the next week is good, but remember it is your learning for today so I would like something even if its only a couple of slides. If you are struggling technology wise then anything similar will do, but we will be using Adobe Spark more in school so the more you experiment now, the better.

And finally I hope you have a lovely holiday, spending time with your family, going for walks, doing jigsaws and reading stories and books. Try to chill out and sleep too. If you fancy a film Mulan is a good one set in China!

Parents and adults who have been supporting remote learning thank you so much for all your support and kind words. Its been challenging for all of us in so many different ways, but everybody has risen to the challenge and you have supported your children amazingly. The children have produced some fantastic learning and I am so proud of them - the writing, poems and dragon reports, in particular. Take some time to recharge your batteries too and enjoy some family time together having fun!!

Best wishes and stay safe

Fiona Tingle

PS Something to make you smile - Millie B has been missing us all so much she has drawn pictures of us all to have on her wall so that we are with her when she is learning - just like in the classroom - what a lovely idea Millie. We are all missing you too.

Thursday 11th February

Good Morning everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead!! There were some great Spark videos - I hope you had fun!!!

This week we are celebrating Chinese New Year (which is on Friday), so things will look a little different, apart from Maths, in which we have a couple more days on statistics and data handling. Each day I will put up new English / Reading and Maths learning to be completed that day, but for topic I have put a list of learning choices below which tomorrow I will move to the top of the page for the rest of the week. Please try to complete some topic learning each day, but as some of them are resource dependent any order is ok and there are plenty to choose from. You don't have to do them all but try to go for a variety. They will also be on Seesaw, the new Maths / English learning will appear at the top each day. For those children who are in school on some days I have put the day of the week the activity will be covered in school in brackets. Obviously extras like cooking can be covered at home and even into next week. At the end of the week I will ask you to put together an Adobe Spark video of your learning about Chinese New Year so make sure you take plenty of photos / videos!!

Happy Friday - just one more day of amazing work Team Orion before you relax and chill over the weekend!! A reminder about the Code of Conduct to read and sign with your child if you haven't already! Also remember Star of the Week will be streamed at 2pm, you are all making it such a difficult choice each week because of the incredible work you are doing!!

Today is our final day for The Dragon Report - I have started to put some of them together so they look like a page in an information book but need your help with finishing touches. More details on Seesaw!

Next week we are going to have a bit of a change and celebrate Chinese New Year. I will put a selection of learning activities on at the beginning of the week so you can plan what to do across the week, as there will be cooking, dancing, arts and crafts to look forward to, which may involve shopping!!

Topic - over the next couple of days I would like you to download Adobe Spark onto your device - it is a video app where you can do all sorts of different recording of your learning. If you have a brother or sister further up school they might have shown it to you already. You will need to set up an account at home. I will try and add some simple user instructions today to help. Basically I would like you to have a play with it and see what it can do - I know you will be fantastic. Click on the + to get started. It gives you a few options but if you skip to editor at the bottom then + you can use the photos on the left hand side  to search and add them in , then use the microphone to record you giving information or telling a story. if you add several photos it will turn them into a video. I am hoping next week we can use it to record our learning in a different way.

Topic / PSHE - After the sad news about Sir Tom Moore I thought it would be a good opportunity to talk about his contribution as a significant individual. There is some information and questions on Seesaw but this of more of a discussion task, the questions are just ideas not to be fully answered, more to recognise the good he did and why he will be remembered. If the children would like to record a message on Seesaw that would be lovely but not a necessity.

Friday 22nd January 

 Happy Friday everyone, another super week of learning and posting, posting, posting on Seesaw!! You definitely all deserve a weekend of chilling!! Plus enjoying a book!

PSHE today is Friendly Friday (powerpoint in files)

Maths please watch the video https://vimeo.com/492603633  task on Seesaw

English Today we are writing our poems instructions on Seesaw - I cant wait to see them, I will try to put them all together in an e-book again for you to share each others'

I would like to publish the finished poems for you all to read like I have before, Ideally I would like them this weekend. The easiest way for me to do this is if you can type the poem onto the word document below and email it to me. There are 2 different backgrounds for you to choose from. I know some of you might not have a access to do this on Word so you can do it on Seesaw which i can then retype onto Word. This is because I have to turn it into a PDF document and I can't find a way to do that from Seesaw. I have put both backgrounds on Seesaw so you get the same choice

Topic - making a rain gauge using the 2l bottle, activity in files or on Seesaw, please add response on Seesaw to upload a photo

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, but I will as quickly as I can.

I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for the standard of learning and support you are giving the children, I know many of you are facing challenging circumstance and you are all doing a great job!! The Year 2 team would also like to say a huge thank you for the very kind gifts we received at Christmas (which seems a long time ago now!) we were very touched.

I have also included a short PSHE powerpoint in the files section, to help with the children's emotional and mental well-being - today's is called 'Mighty Monday'
