Welcome to SUPER Swifts!
Welcome to the SUPER Swifts home learning page! Here you will find lots of daily interactive activities that reflect a day in the life of a Swift. Where we find ourselves in a situation similar to before, I would just like you to know that I will be here every step of the way with you. May it be through the activities posted, MARV ME messages or seeing what fabulous things the children have been up to through the class email account - firstname.lastname@example.org, I will do my very best!
A Day In The Life Of A Home Learning Swift
I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you all during this stressful time. I am here to help in any way that I can so please do not feel as if you are on your own. To help, I have set out a brief outline of what your home learning day could look like in Year 2. It's similar to one that we use in School...
* 9.00am - A positive start to the day with Miss Sangha.
- A Wake & Shake to get our brains and bodies moving!
* 9.15am - Phonics
* 9.45am - Snack and Break
* 10.00am - Maths
* 11.00am - Time to Read
* 11.15am - English
* 12.15pm - Lunchtime
* 1.15pm - Cross Curricular activity (Art, P.E, Science and Topic based activities)
* 2.30pm - Story Time with Miss S
* 2.50pm - Time to Reflect
- A positive end to the day with Miss Sangha
Please do NOT feel obliged to stick to this routine as it is just a guide. You can dip in and out of these sessions throughout the day or just stick to the core sessions provided in the morning. The afternoon sessions are OPTIONAL. You decide what works for you and your child
Our Home Learning page consists of a structured routine that is similar to one in School. Below are daily stars with activities linked to our learning journey. In these stars you'll find:
* A timetable,
* Interactive videos posted to guide you or other resources like PowerPoints or website links,
* Online activities / tasks
A typical day will look like this...
A good morning from me with a positive affirmation. Straight into a wake and shake to get our brains and bodies moving! A Phonics task which will include something interactive. Followed by a snack and break. Afterwards, we'll go straight into Maths which will be led by a video introducing the concept for that day if needed. Followed by an activity related to the video/powerpoint/website link. There'll be a 'time to read' where I'll post a reading challenge. This will lead nicely into our English session. You'll be pleased to know that after that it'll be lunch time! There will be a cross curricular task for the afternoon session which will be either Art, P.E, Science or Topic based. There will be a 'story time' session led by yours truly where I'll choose a book to read to the class. To end the learning day they'll be a chance to reflect on the positives. This could be the perfect opportunity to send over all the FABULOUS things that you have been doing via email
On Fridays, or shall I say 'FRI-YAYS' I will be posting quizzes relating to learning that week. This will be our 'FREAKY Friday!' This is the perfect chance to take part in a FUN and interactive quiz with yours truly. The winner will receive a SPECIAL and personalised well done and possibly even get a dip in my MYSTERY BOX when they return... How exciting!
Children that are in school will be doing the same learning set so this is consistent across our year group. We are collecting their work in the form of a book to keep track of all the wonderful things that they are doing. This would be great if you could do the same. Children can work in a book or on the sheets provided which are then put in a folder- whatever works for you! Where possible, I will try and post answers to help you. When children are able to come back they can bring in their wonderful work and share this with me
As phonics is an essential part of our daily routine, it is important that children engage with some form of phonics learning or activities everyday. If you would like any more on phonics I have created all of the children their own account on PhonicsHero. This is a a really cool website where the children can play games and complete activities in order to release the superheroes and capture the bad guys! We have trialled it with the children that are in school and had amazing feedback and lots of smiles! They love it!
Please find the website below.
Please email me for your child's login details at - email@example.com
Just like phonics, reading is an important part of a child's development. Reading is a vital skill! As well as our daily story time, make sure to check out BUGCLUB regularly. This gives children a chance to read books and answer questions to earn rewards and play games. I will be logging on daily to have a look at how the children are doing and making sure they don't run out of books! We use this regularly at School so children should know how to use it
If you need their login details again or any advice, please email me at - firstname.lastname@example.org
Talk To Teachers
Have no fear, I am here! I will be available throughout the sessions to help guide, give advice and support in anyway that I can. You can reach me through our class email account - email@example.com. Please feel free to email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I'd love to hear from you and see the wonderful work that children have done so please do share! This can be through messages, photographs or even a short video recording. Whatever works for you!
Please keep an eye on your MARV Me app too as I will be giving feedback on work shared and rewarding children through the MARV Me badges. I have made brand new ones to share! This is a great way to keep track of all the fabulous learning that is happening at home! I wonder how many you can get...
