Y2 - Mr Wright 2019 - 2020

Mr Wright

Welcome

My name is Mr Wright and I teach Year 2 along with Mrs Ward and Mrs Hooton, who support our class. I have been teaching at Northway ever since I completed my teacher training in 2014 and I love it.

Having spent several months at Northway during my teaching practice, I was delighted to become a member of the teaching staff and being a teacher is something I have always wanted to do. I believe that children learn best when they are engaged and enjoying their learning so I always aim to make my lessons as entertaining as possible. As well as teaching Year 2, I am also responsible for leading Physical Education throughout the school.

Daily Home Learning Plan

So, it looks like school might be closed for a little while but we don’t want you to stop learning! It is really important that you carry on practising your basic skills and keep your creative juices flowing!

Below is a list of ideas for things you can do when you should be in school. I will update our class page by 9:30am every Monday with some new ideas to keep you ticking over.

Don’t forget to use your online learning log-ins to keep your skills going. The links for some websites are below:

Top Marks Maths Games – https://www.topmarks.co.uk/

Phonics play – https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Some children may also have log-ins for these accounts:

Active Learn – https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0

IDL - https://www.idlcloud.co.uk/

Doodle Maths - https://www.doodlemaths.com/

Times Tables Rock Stars - https://play.ttrockstars.com/

Numberbots - Try logging into https://play.numbots.com/#/intro using your TTRockstars username and password. It is a new game to help you practise number bonds and improve your understanding of place value. It starts off very easy but it is important you work through each question so you can move onto challenges. You can earn rewards in a similar way to TTRockstars. 

Also, check out the ‘Files to download’ section of the class page because there will be some helpful documents for you to look at there.

This week’s inspiration:

WB 30.3.20

Creative time: Last week you might have made a moving vehicle but there wasn’t a driver! So your creative mission this week is to make a figure to ride on your vehicle. An easy starting point is to twist some tinfoil or paper to form the base of your person or animal.

Music Chill time: Listen to some Elton John music and see if you can sing along – especially to Rocket Man. We liked that one!

Science: Have a look through the PowerPoint saved on the ‘Files to download’ section of your class page called ‘Materials’. Have a materials hunt around the house or your garden if you have one. What are things made from? Is there anything made of a material you are not sure of?

History: Make an information page all about the Gunpowder Plot that you learnt about last term. Put it with the one you made last week about the moon landing. You can make a museum wall in your house!

Geography: Revisit the countries within the UK and their capitals. Can you locate them on a map of the UK? Have a look for places you have visited. There are maps of the world and the UK in files to download.

Mindfulness challenge:  Listen to some calming music such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUXEeAXywCY whilst you spend some quiet time colouring in. There are lots of lovely examples for you to download and print https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-c-1551-mindfulness-colouring-sheets-bumper-pack.  If you can’t print them try this: https://www.mombooks.com/dp-online-activity/relaxing-art-therapy/?imprint=1 You can colour the screen online!
