Welcome to Emerald Class. 

Our class is named after the gem stone Emerald; a vibrant green stone symbolising wisdom, growth and patience.

Monday 30th March

Good morning Year 2.  It is the start of our second week of 'school from home' and we have lots of ideas for you to do this week.  Our first exciting news is that, with the help of Mr Leavins, we are now able to launch the Year 2 blog.  We hope that you will be able to post us some pictures and messages to let us know how you all are and to tell us what you have all been doing. 

First you need to click on this link:  https://padlet.com/emeraldtopaz2/Year2blog

 

You will be taken straight to the joint Emerald and Topaz blog and you will see messages on there from the three of us plus a picture of Mitch who is Mrs Douglas' ginger cat!  If you would like to post a message or picture you need to make sure that an adult checks it first.  Click on the big pink button on the bottom right of the screen to add your post.  It will then go to Mrs Douglas who will approve it before it appears on the timeline for everyone to see.  When you post something please include your first name and the initial of your surname only so that we know who it's from.  Mrs Douglas will check the posts twice a day for approval so please be patient as your post won't necessarily appear immediately.

 

Did you work out Mrs Greenway's riddle on Friday?  Answer: the stars!

Here's today's riddle for you. 

Monday’s riddle
If a man carried my burden
He would break his back.
I am not rich
But leave silver in my track.

 

We've attached the answers to Friday's grammar challenge so that you can check that you got the capital letters and full stops in the correct places.  This week we are setting you a couple of challenges each day.  There is an English challenge which requires you to read or listen to a story and then complete an activity linked to the story and a maths challenge which you might like to do instead of an activity on the home learning grid below.

We can't wait to see your pictures and posts on the blog.

Friday 27th March

Good morning Year 2.  We hope you liked Mrs Greenway's daily riddle.  Did you guess who was speaking?

Answer: a Robin!

Here's today's riddle for you. 

Friday’s riddle
At night they come
Without being fetched
And by day they are lost
Without being stolen.

What are they?

 

This is the end of our first week of home learning and we hope you have enjoyed tackling some of our challenges and found a routine for yourselves.  We are all getting fit with Joe Wicks.  Mrs Greenway's current favourite workout activity from Joe Wicks's PE session is 'The Spiderman' - what's yours?  Hopefully you now all have a beautiful clock to help you tell the time and you've all had a go at some of the English and Topic activities we have suggested for you below. 

 

Mrs Douglas, Mrs Greenway and Mr Deighton have started to settle into being a 'virtual' team and are learning new things every day!  We miss seeing each other and sharing ideas but we've learnt to replicate our great teamwork via email, text and FaceTime this week.

 

We've attached the answers to yesterday's maths challenge.  Did you work out the new times correctly?  Don't forget to help put the clocks forward by one hour on Sunday - after all you are the experts now! Today's challenge is slightly different because we thought we'd set you a grammar challenge.  This is something everyone in Emerald and Topaz class need to work on!

 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Mrs Greenway, Mrs Douglas and Mr Deighton

Thursday 26th March

Good morning Year 2.

Thursday’s riddle
Use the clues in the poem to work out who or what is speaking.

I’m called by a man’s name
Though I’m as small as a mouse.
When winter comes, I love to be
With my red target near the house.

What am I?

How are you all getting on?  We hope you are enjoying our daily challenges and have had a chance to get into a routine and try out some of the English and Topic activities we organised for you at the bottom of the page.  Have you tried the Great Fire of London Game yet?  We love this game - the graphics are amazing and the story is one you all know really well now.  Why not give it a go if you haven't tried it yet.  Click here to go straight into the game:  http://www.fireoflondon.org.uk/game/

 

Mrs Greenway was so inspired by Mr Deighton's efforts in the garden, she mowed her lawn for the first time this year yesterday!  Meanwhile, Mr Deighton managed three laps of his local park as part of his daily exercise routine - he must have been inspired by Joe Wicks!  You will be amazed to hear that Mrs Greenway and Mrs Douglas also learnt a new skill yesterday - how to make a Whatsapp Video conference call and we had a really good online meeting with Mr Deighton planning some more activities for you next week.

 

We've attached the answers to yesterday's maths challenge so have a look and see how you did.  Today's challenge is linked to the clock's going forward at the weekend - can you find out why we put our clocks forward and when we first started doing it?

We'll post the answers to today's challenge tomorrow.

Have fun everyone.

 

Mrs Greenway, Mrs Douglas and Mr Deighton
