Our last post for a while…..

Now that we are back to learning online at home, we will not be setting ‘Home learning’. Instead, we ask you to complete the tasks that your teacher is setting and in addition we would ask you to complete the following things:

  • To read every day and record in your reading journal or in another book. You can access online reading books via WONDE on sites such as Oxford Owl, espresso and Teach Your Monster to Read
  • Continue to work through your spellings, remember you have access to Spelling Shed, where weekly spellings can be set and where you can play spelling games.
  • We also ask you to continue to work on your times tables, which you can access via SPARX.

If you need any help, have any questions, need a challenge or want to send in any work (which we’d love to see), it can be sent to our email: y3homelearning@exwickheights.devon.sch.uk

Year 2 Bug Club! How to access online reading books for your child.

As a school, we have now subscribed to Bug Club, which is an online library of high quality eBooks, for our younger pupils.  This is to enable your child to have increased opportunity to read at home, as well as offer an exciting new dimension to their reading experience.   As such, your child can now access and choose from a selection of eBooks allocated to them by their teacher (in addition to the books already being sent home).

Information about how to access Bug Club can be found in our online learning help page: https://exwickheightsblog.co.uk/online-learning

.  Please do let us know if you have any problems accessing this information or Bug Club online.

Stick man

The children have been so excited by this week’s story; the much loved ‘Stick Man’. Even the youngest children have been able to join in with key phrases and notice that some of the words rhyme. The story has been read so many times this week, but each time it has been received with such enthusiasm.

To help Santa over the next few days, we have created an ‘elf workshop’. The enthusiastic elves have been designing and constructing with toys. The busy atmosphere in the work shop has been delightful to observe!

Outside, our builders have been industriously constructing a variety of brick homes for us to work in and the dumper trucks have busily distributed sand all over the playground!

Each class has been continuing the count down to Jesus’ birthday and Christmas day using our advent calendars. Everyone is becoming very excited with just four days of school to go before we can begin more Christmas festivities.

  • We are collecting recycled materials for our junk modelling station. Due to allergies that we have in school, we would only like containers that have not had any contact with food e.g. tissue boxes and tubes. Please could the items be brought in a bag and labelled, if possible, with the date they are brought in. Thank you J.
