Right my little dinosaurs are you ready for a super challenge?
My friend Kirsty is a 'Cyber Protect and Prevent Officer' for the police force and she needs our help!
I told her how good we are when it comes to online safety and that's when she told me about her problem. She needs to come up with some ideas on how would be the best way to teach others including your friends, parents, guardians or carers about how to keep yourself safe online. This could be through posters, leaflets, power points, stories or any other ideas you can come up with.
Kirsty very kindly has shared one of her power points with you to help give some ideas. I will attach this to the class page for you to see. If you make sure that you put it into slide show then you can select the answers you think are correct when going through the slides.
Should you wish to accept this challenge please feel free to send me your finished ideas to either the google classroom or the school email address.
I look forward to seeing what great things you can come up with i know Kirsty will be just as excited!!! Good Luck!!!
Morning my little dinosaurs
Hope you’re all looking forward to be starting a new week! I am just waiting for a exciting email to arrive then I have got a really fun challenge for you all to do! In the mean time I have found these lovely stay home pics you could print out and colour. I know how much you all love your colouring!
Love Miss Newcombe : )!
Hey my little munchkins
I hope you are all as excited as me that it is finally Friday!!!
Can you believe that you have all made it through the first week of being at home? Definitely need to give yourselves and the grown ups who have been with you a pat on the back!
I have set up a google classroom account which is very new to me and I am going to try my hardest to get my head around it. You know what I’m like when it comes to technology! Hopefully this should be a way for you to communicate with me and let me know some of the fun things you have been doing this past week. All you need to do is check with a grown up that they have a gmail account then head to google and search for google classroom then select join a class.
You will need the code: w3b26o7
I hope you manage to get logged on as it would be lovely to hear from you all!!!
Morning my little dinosaurs!
I hope you are able to make the most of the sunshine.
This has been a very strange week for me not being able to see all of your happy smiling faces! Thankfully I remembered about the hot cross bun photos which helped to put a smile on my face. I will pop these pics on the website for you to enjoy!!! I think it is safe to say that Pebbles (the cat) is definitely getting fed up with me invading his space everyday. I will put up a photo for you too see just what the poor munchkin is having to put up with! Bump is being just as cheeky as ever and getting himself into all those awkward positions that make me uncomfortable. He does seem to be getting hiccups all the time which does make me giggle!
I have been thinking of some activities for you to do while at home and will set you a variety of things to to do on purple mash. Please don’t worry if you can’t access it as I know some of you are having trouble due to so many people trying to use it all at once. I’m sure your parents have seen that you can join in with an online PE class with Joe Wickes every morning on YouTube at 9am. Also Oti Mabuse from Strickly Come Dancing is doing a dance class from her front room for you to get involved in. I know how so many of you enjoy your dancing! You can find these one her Facebook, instagram and YouTube accounts every day at 11.30.
I will be in touch again with some more ideas soon! In the mean time keep looking after yourself and the people around you! Hopefully see you all soon!!!!
Miss Newcombe : )
Pebbles wasn’t too happy with his new friend coming into his house!!!
You can have animals pop in to see you too! All you have to do it get your grown up to type in an animal name into google and then scroll down until you see an option to view in 3D. Once you select this you can see the animal in your front room!!! Which animals will you choose to pop round for a visit?
You could use all of your story writing skills that you have developed over the last term to write an adventure story about what happened the day the animals came into your home!!!
Good luck!!! I look forward to reading these stories when you come back to school as I know from your last ones they will definitely be entertaining!!!
Miss Newcombe : )!
In the event of children staying at home during normal school time I am offering the following advice and guidance to help them to keep working.
Please find below a link to Twinkl website as they are offering free activities for parents to access at home:
Once logged on, you should see a link for home education resources that are year group specific.
Classroom secrets kids has some lovely learning activities and you can create a free account with individual 'seats' for each child.
In addition to this the following are also suggested:
1. Read for pleasure. This means there is no expectation to write comprehension questions and answers but children may wish to let me know what they are reading. Again, this can be reported on their Purple Mash Blog. We have experienced great fun on World Book Day recently and the children can revisit any activities they enjoyed, be that art work, rewriting extracts as play scripts and acting scenes out, reading using expression etc.
2. For daily maths practise:
Any of the Y2 units for maths and English on Purple Mash. At this stage, they are all relevant.
3. Artwork - What a great opportunity to get out in the garden and practise those sketching skills.
I shall also set some Purple Mash 2Dos that can be done at any time up the end of the Easter holidays - these will be available from tomorrow and will be updated regularly.
If you are unable to access these online activities, please ring or email and I will send some paper copies home.
