Year 2 Home Learning
Please find below some learning websites which you and your child can access while your child is in isolation or accessing remote learning at home.
If your child is self-isolating, a two week 'Isolation Education' learning pack is available for your child. A detailed two-week plan of learning will be emailed out to you and you can access all videos and resources via ‘Microsoft Teams’.
If your child's class bubble collapses and they are sent home to self-isolate, your child will access our ‘Remote Learning’ education. Remote learning information and guidance will be emailed out to you. We will use ‘Microsoft Teams’ as a virtual online platform to provide an interactive online classroom with virtual face-to-face connections with the teacher to keep classrooms and lessons connected, communicate with children and parents and provide feedback.
Please contact our school office if:
- your child needs their Teams log in and password re-issued or reset,
- your child is eligible for Free School Meals,
- you do not have the IT facilities to access home learning or to print out activities and worksheets.
