Where Every Child Counts

Jan 18th- 22nd Home Learning

This is where you will find work for Mrs Ward's Dahl class. There will be daily Numeracy and Literacy along with ongoing Phonics and Spelling activities and a mix of Science, Topic and RE along with other enrichment activities to keep your children's brains busy.

Please can you continue to read daily with your children and to practise times tables using Time Tables Rockstars. Please message if your child has lost their password- and I will be checking to see who has logged in!

If you have any worries or concerns, please use the Remind App to contact me and I will get back to you ASAP. 

Please do what you can to help your children during these difficult times and take plenty of breaks.

We miss you all and can't wait to have you back in class,

 Mrs Ward, Mrs Henman and Mrs Otter.

We are continuing with money this week. The children will continue to count and compare, find totals and move onto making change and applying their knowledge to 2 step word problems.

Each day, watch the video, pausing if needed and use it to help complete the questions on the worksheets. I would love to hear how the children do on the Remind App.

After the death of Edward the Confessor, no one knew who would rule next. There were three kings who claimed they had a claim to the throne. 

-Harold Godwinson - promised the throne by leaders of England.

-Harald Hardrada- thought his family had been promised the throne by a previous King.

-William, Duke of Normandy- said that Edward has promised him the throne before he died.

What can you find out about each of the three kings? Record it here.


Please help your child to learn these and test them at the end of the week. These words are taken from the Year 2 Common Exception word list.
