Class Blyton -  Year 2

 

Starting back in September 2020

For children who do not have any siblings in school, their start time will be 9.20am, lining up on the right hand side of the barrier gate. The finish time will be 3.20pm, where you can collect your child from the pathway down Beech Close at the front of school. Your child will be escorted when crossing the road to meet you. For all other Year 2 children, the start time will be slightly different and this will be on your individual letter that was sent out on 10.07.20. These staggered start and finish times are in place to minimise congestion and contact with other bubbles of children.

Learning at Home

Fancy a challenge this summer? Why not sign up to the summer reading challenge?

Friday 17th July 2020

Happy Friday! The last day of term has arrived. It has been a strange end of year and we haven't been able to say goodbye to each other like we usually do. The good news is that we will all be back in September and raring to go. Once again I would like to say how much I have missed you all and how proud I am of you all for doing so much learning at home. You are all amazing children I am lucky to have been your teacher and even more lucky to be your teacher again in September, I really can't wait. I hope that you all have a lovely summer with your families and have lots of fun.

Stay safe and see you soon.

Good morning Class Blyton,

Happy Thursday!

We are almost at the end of the school year so let's reflect on the work that we've done and the experiences that we have had together. Your job today is to write/draw pictures about the things you most enjoyed about your time in year 2. Remember to post them onto Google classroom so that I can see.

Have a great day.

Love Mrs. Gough x

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Good morning Class Blyton,

Happy Wednesday!

Your work for today is to write a set of questions that you would like to ask me about being in Year 3 next year. You already know me and I know you, so your questions could be about our learning, topics and classroom. You could post these onto Google Classroom and I will answer as many as I can.

Have a lovely day and stay safe,

Love Mrs. Gough x

Tuesday 14th July 2020

Good morning Class Blyton,

Happy Tuesday! I hope that you are all feeling great this morning and ready for a small project.  Seeing as though this is your last week of learning before the summer holidays, why not create a piece of work about what you have enjoyed this year. I know that you have missed being at school for a long time, but try to think of something that you enjoyed earlier on in the year. You could write about it, do a report or even a comic strip.

Remember that there is no new online learning on the Oak National Academy this week so you can still access the BBC bitesize website.

Have a great day and stay safe!

Dear Parents and Pupils,

  The Public Health team want to know how you have been feeling during ‘lockdown’.

  Why do you want to know how I’m feeling?

Our emotional health and wellbeing is more important than ever and we want to help you to take care of it. We have created a very short survey (only 14 questions)  to help us listen to the children and young people of Barnsley.

 The information we get from this survey will help us to meet your needs properly and support you all as best we can through this difficult time. To go to the survey click the link below:

 Click here to take the survey

 Who can complete the survey?

We want to hear from all children and young people living in Barnsley.

Those of you who are 13 years or above you can complete the survey on your own.

If you are under 13 you will need a parent or carer to give their permission to complete the survey.

Parents and carers: you may want help your child to answer the questions in the survey if they are younger or need any extra support.

 Who will see my answers?

The survey will be completely anonymous and the questions have been worded so that there will be no personal information that may identify you. A link to the full privacy notice is included at the top of the survey which offers more detail on how we will use the data.

 But my feelings keep changing as different things in my life keep changing

We are aware that day by day different things are happening and the government restrictions keep on changing which is why we would like it if you can do this survey more than once. We would like it if you can try and complete this survey every four weeks as it will help us to see how your emotional needs change over time. We will send the link to the survey out to you every four weeks to help to remind you to complete it.

 Thank you for taking the time to be involved, we hope that with this information we can support your emotional health and wellbeing through these difficult times.

 Kind Regards

 Helen Goddard
