Hello Year 2!
We hope are all well and safe. This is the last week before the half term break, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. We hope you enjoyed last week’s home learning and are continuing to keep safe. We have once again been so impressed by how many fantastic photos have been shared with us via the year 2 email address – email@example.com. We have loved reading all your revenge plans for the Twits in particular. Everyone loved the video of your photographs last week so Miss Rolfe has made another one this week. We hope you love looking at each other’s home learning as much as we do!
Did you know that May is National Asparagus month? We are learning about where our fruit and vegetables grow in science this week, maybe you could find out how asparagus grows. Now, asparagus may not be your favourite veggie or you may never have tried it before so why not change that this month? You could challenge yourself to try some asparagus this week or maybe find a new way of cooking it to see if you like it cooked differently. I bet you didn’t know you can get green, red and white asparagus and Britain is thought to grow the best green asparagus in the world. Wow – I’ve said the word asparagus a lot of times!
On the 23rd May, National children’s gardening week begins and we have been so impressed by all the photos sharing all the gardening you’ve been doing already. Visit the children’s gardening week website for lots of ideas of things you can do from making a hedgehog feeding station to growing cress in egg shells. Don’t forget to send photos of what you get up to!
This week’s whole Pegasus Trust challenge is an exciting photography competition. Watch the video below to find all about what you have to do to enter!
