Welcome to the Plumcroft Distance Learning Portal for Year 2
Welcome to the Plumcroft Distance Learning Portal. Here, you will find suggested learning opportunities for you and your families. Using these resources, you can put together a working timetable that fits your family’s commitments.
We would like to encourage you towards certain online learning tools that we believe contain the best content to support learning in the coming weeks. Mathletics, myON and Renaissance (Maths in a Flash) will be our primary sources for distance online learning – these will be monitored regularly by your teachers. Teachers will be setting projects on myONthat involve both reading and writing. Within these projects, there will also be links with art, science, history, geography and DT. There will be no deadlines set as every family’s situation is different, but we will be setting new projects regularly to keep the children learning!
Many of you have been requesting timetables for home learning. Daily timetables will vary due to many variables including your child’s age, your work and family commitments and how much time you decide to spend on each activity. The timetable below is an example only and details the times of the Read Write Inc live sessions. There are set one, two and three speed sound lessons.
9am – 9:30am
PE - Workout with Joe Wicks/ Read Write Inc set one speed sounds (www.ruthmiskin.com)
9:30am – 10am
Year one: Maths in a Flash accessed via Renaissance using myOn login

10.30am-11.00am- Read Write Inc set three speed sounds (www.ruthmiskin.com) / Yoga with Miss.Whytock on Tuesdays and Thursdays or Cosmic kids yoga would be beneficial as good exercise.

Science and Art – try one of the suggested websites or use materials in your home to make/draw/build projects.
3pm – 4pm

Tune in to Newsround to find out what’s been going on in the world
Don’t forget to read a book, either on your own or with a member of your family, for at least 15 minutes. You could also do some Helicopter Storytelling! There are some videos of this on YouTube but it is essentially where children tell you a story of their choice and you write it down word for word and then you act it out together!
Thank you for your continued support.
