Y2 Notice Board during school closure

SCHOOL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS.

We will post school work on this Notice Board on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you need to contact us please use the following email addresses:

 

apricots@belmont.hounslow.sch.uk

damsons@belmont.hounslow.sch.uk

 

We have created a password protected Y2 page which allows us to post children's work and photos safely.  You will receive a parentmail with the Y2 password. Please do not share this beyond our immediate Y2 community.

 

We hope that you and your families stay safe and well. Here is some advice from the Healthy Schools team: Staying Healthy - Information for Parent 

If for any reason you are unable to do these tasks, there is nothing to worry about. We hope they will be helpful! Tasks will disappear as new tasks are added (on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) so you could take a screenshot of any task you want to save for another time. 

  • Here are some video clips of my guinea pigs - Cookie & Biscuit. Biscuit is the silky one and Cookie is the fuzzy one! They are loving the sunshine. Love, Mrs Nicholas x

         

  • Some parents have asked about using Class Dojo at home. If you go to www.classdojo.com/beyondschool/ you can set up your own account and create your own Dojo monsters! You can give points for home learning, chores etc. Unfortunately we can't add you to our school Dojo system but you can still set up your own version to use at home.

    After the Easter break we will be moving onto our new science topic of ‘Plants’.

    What can you remember about plants from Year 1? You could write some ideas into your notebook.

  • Task: Plant a seed and observe it over the next two weeks. What does your seed need to grow? Where does your plant need to be to grow? You could keep a growth diary or any changes. Write down what you can see, draw or take photos of any changes and even measure these changes with a ruler.
