Possible School Closure
Home Learning Pack
To prepare the children for possible school closures, I have gathered some home learning packs for children to use. They contain activities that cover the core subjects of reading, writing and maths, with some further suggestions.
There may be further activities added to THIS PAGE if school were to be closed for an extended period of time. Please try and check the school website's 'Home Learning' page for further class communications.
Thank you so much for you're continued support, and most importantly, I wish you all to remain in good health and spirit.
From all the Class 2 team,
Mrs Milburn, Mrs Carter, Mr McDougall and Miss Allan.

New Home learning document - phonics
I hope everyone is well. I have sent two phonics booklets home with children today. I will add the documents to this page tomorrow for anyone who is already absent. All sounds have been taught once. My suggestion would be to re-cap TWO phonic sounds (i.e. two pages of the booklet) everyday. For children who are confident READING the sounds, then ask the to spell the words.
The below link to Geraldine the Giraffe will really help. You can search each individual sound and then play a short 2 minute video.
I have also posted a picture for a free sign-on to ‘phonics play’ website which is full of games for each sound taught.
You can also be creative and make it fun. Perhaps make the sounds using salt dough, or use a shoe-box to create a lucky dip with 5 or 6 sounds hidden in the lucky dip. Children love water play so if you have any floating objects such as ping-pong balls or plastic milk lids, write the sounds on the items and drop them into a bowl of water. Use a spoon or mini fishing net to fish a sound out then say the sound.
I have also sent about 5 reading books home with children today too.
Thank you for your support,
