I have been at Rode Heath for 8 years now and this is my second year in year two. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges of year two and helping to prepare the children for their transition into the juniors.
Out of school I have two boys which keep me busy and very much entertained! We cherish the time we have as a family and spend our weekends walking, swimming, playing cricket or riding bikes. If I have sometime for myself I enjoy Zumba, running, catching up with friends, watching a good TV drama or curling up with a good book.

I have been at Rode Heath for 7 years, supporting classes in both infants and juniors and have thoroughly enjoyed working with all the children. Part of my role has been sound and video technician in the sharing assemblies!!! :]]
In my spare time I am a team manager for a local swimming club and spend many weekends supporting my son in his swimming endeavours, which usually means a very early start!


Continuing the learning journey at home... 

Monday 30th March 

I hope you are all well and looking after one another.  I have been in school for three consecutive days and it has been very quiet and a little strange!  I miss my class terribly but I know we will see each other very soon. 

In the meantime, I will be updating the class page regularly with learning tasks, activities and some useful links to websites.

There are daily maths lessons on WhiteRose

The website is on week 2 of home learning but if you could start with Week 1, this teaches all about fractions which was our unit of work in our last week.  There is a useful video to watch followed by an activity sheet to complete and the answer sheet for your child to mark their own work!

Reading - we would usually read for 25 minutes in school per day.  If you could encourage your child to continue with this routine that would be great.  Allow your child time to read to you and it is fine to read to them too.  Discuss the books you have shared and use the questions in the back of your child's reading diary to check your child's understanding of what they have read.

For something a little different, why not listen to an author read a story aloud.  Many are reading a daily book through Instagram, You Tube and their own websites.  Here are a few suggestions to get you going:

As with all websites, please check the content before leaving your child to watch unsupervised.

Literacy - There are many activities in your child's blue pack to keep them busy for a while yet.  Here are a few other suggestions:

Other curriculum areas

I'm sure you have already come up with your own fabulous ideas to keep busy and hopefully, you were able to spend some time last week enjoying the weather and getting out in your gardens as much as possible.  Please enjoy this time with your families and please do not worry about home schooling your child.  Do what you can and do it your way!

Please see the files below for some daily tasks which will help the whole family their wellbeing.

Thank you for your continued support.
