Year 2 Home Learning

 

Hello Year Two

 

So, home learning is now looking very different through the use of our new learning platform ‘Seesaw’. You should have all by now received an email giving you a little insight into what Seesaw is, also I have sent an email with login information and login details attached. If you have not received this, then please do email me and I will resend the email with all this information on.

Seesaw went LIVE for Smallthorne children on Monday 8th June, so if you haven’t already then please do ensure you create an account as this is where the main part of your home learning will be stored from now on.

Also, just a little reminder that if you haven’t collected your ‘Power Maths’ book and ‘Read Write Inc’ Spelling book from school that you please do this, as these will be an essential part of your home learning from now on.

 

Thank you for all the lovely pictures of the work you have been doing over the past couple of weeks. If you head over to our ‘Wall of Wonder’ page you should see your pictures there.

 

Remember to email if you need anything year2@smallthorneprimary.org.uk

 

Stay safe

Miss Bailey and Mrs Roper
