Meet the Year 3 Teacher
Monday 13th July at 4pm
Next week we will be holding Zoom meetings online for each class to meet their new teacher. This will give children the opportunity to meet and find out more about their teacher and ask any questions they may have.
It is really important for your child to attend this meeting. The office has emailed out details of how to attend this meeting. If you have not received these details, please call the office to get them.
Year 2 Class Zoom Meeting
Our weekly Year 2 Zoom class meetings will be moving to Thursdays at 2.30pm. I will email you the login details beforehand. Please can one parent supervise each child.
I look forward to seeing lots of you on our Year 2 Zoom meetings.
I know this may seem strange and a bit different to you at the moment and it is alright to feel worried or sad. For the time being the school will be closed because of that nasty Mrs Coronavirus, but you will carry on with your learning at home and I will still be your teacher. I will be working every day to plan lessons for you, help you and answer any questions you have. I won’t be far away, I will be working at my desk and thinking lots about you all.
I will be setting weekly home learning on a Monday for you to complete every day. You need to make sure you keep to a daily routine, get up at the same time every morning and follow our Year 2 timetable. You will still be working and learning, but from home!
You may want to set up a work desk in your house, if you have a table and chair. You can keep all your work together. You might also like to write out your own timetable to stick up on your wall – remember our Year 2 daily timetable. Don’t worry about Collective Worship:
09.00 – 10.00 – English
10.00 – 10.45 – Phonics
10.45 – 11. 00 – Break
11.00 – 12.00 – Maths
12.00 – 1.00 – Lunch
1.00 – 1.45 – Reading
1.45 – 3.00 – Topic/Art/RE/Handwriting
3.00 – 3.30 – Exercises (star jumps, running on the spot etc.)
Take care and I will be in sending more work soon.
Mr Parsons, Ms Mahmutaj, Ms Zein and Ms Anouf
Note for parents:
If you need to contact me about any queries with the task you can so on my email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be available from 8.30-4.30pm. If you email after these hours, I will seek to reply to your email the following day. Where appropriate, answers to questions in Maths will be uploaded every Friday and other subjects where possible so children can mark their work. Please look at the class page regularly for updates on tasks as these will be updated weekly. Children will be expected to complete all tasks within this pack however, I understand that access may be limited. If these issues arise, please just email me. Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you in advance for the support you are going to give during these challenging times. I want to reassure you that I am at the end of an email to offer support and advice to both children and parents.

Work of the Week
Dear parents and children,
I would love to see the fantastic work that is taking place at home! Please email photos of the work that your children are most proud of, by Thursday each week. I will be picking out a few examples each week, that will then be published on the school website. I can't wait to hear from all of you!
Monday 23rd March 2020
If you haven’t already picked up your child’s home learning pack with their login details, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for your child’s Bug Club and Times Tables Rockstars login details. The Times Table Rockstars login will also work for Numbots. Please tell me your child’s name in the email.
Bug Club is a key website to use daily. It allows your child to read a book at home everyday, I have already allocated the correct reading book level to each child. The link to Bug Club is listed below. You will need your child’s username, the password which is password and then the code rtmg.
Times Tables Rockstars allows your child to practise their timetables, starting with 1x, 2x, 5x and 10x this week. The link to the site is listed below. The first time you go on you will need to go to Login, School, Student and then find the school using the postcode, NW6 5XA. You will then need your child’s username and password.
Numbots is another site created by the Time Tables Rockstars company. It allows children to practise their addition and subtraction, with a starting focus on number bonds. The first time you go on you will need to go to Login, School, Student and then find the school using the postcode, NW6 5XA. You will then need your child’s username and password (the same one as Times Table Rockstars).
All websites might be slow at times, especially during school hours, as millions of children across the country will be trying to log on. Keep trying as some periods are better than others.
Best wishes and stay safe,
