Online Learning Platforms

We use two online learning platforms at Sherwood:

Espresso a video rich, online learning platform. Used for learning across the whole curriculum.

Mathletics – a Mathematics based learning platform. We can assign specific tasks and closely follow your child’s progress.

Your child’s login details for these online platforms can be found in your child's Remote Learning Book or Home/School Diary. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you child experiences any difficulties accessing this content.

We invite you to share your child’s learning with us by emailing:

year2@sherwood.lancs.sch.uk

You could email pictures of completed tasks or photographs of pupils engaged in a particular task. This is a positive way to keep your child engaged throughout this period and provides a valuable assessment/feedback opportunity for us.

We are committed to providing learning opportunities that are appropriate for all pupils. Please use the email address provided to contact us to discuss how learning tasks provided can be adapted to meet the needs of your child.

If you want to complete any extra activities, Year 2 Recommends:

PE

  • Keep tuning in to Joe Wicks on YouTube every morning from 9am-10am. It is a brilliant way to keep the children active ☺️🤸🏻‍♀️  https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv
  • Have a try at Yoga! Have a wonderful and relaxing time, enjoying the stories and movements in these great videos! https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga

ART

  • Every Tuesday and Thursday, an illustrator #DrawWithRob has an online tutorial at 10am. Have a go on a piece of paper or even your Remote Learning books! 🎨           http://www.robbiddulph.com/draw-with-rob

WRITING

  • Please can the children make a short diary of what they have done each day. This can be completed in their Remote Learning books or separately. We are living in history and we would like the children to have something they can refer to when they are older- we may have the new Samuel Pepys amongst us

READING

  • There are some reading comprehensions on the files to download section for the children to complete- if you have time. 
  • Please see below for the audio version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe read aloud by Miss Hough.
  • David Walliams is also reading aloud some of his own short stories which make up his best selling novels: 'The Worlds Worst Children.' He will be reading these at 11am each morning. They are free. Tune in! https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses
