Hello Year 2!
We hope you all had a lovely Easter break with your families and have been keeping safe. Below you will find different activities for each day of the week. There will be new learning put up each week.
This week in literacy and reading we will be learning all about nocturnal animals. There will some maths challenges for you complete each day and don’t forget to use these videos to help you if you forget which strategies to use.
Our summer thematic topic is ‘Seasides’ so we have planned some fun activities learning about seasides in the past and nowadays.
Make sure you get some daily exercise, whether that is joining in with Joe Wick’s PE lessons, dancing along with Oti Mabuse or Dianne Buswell from Strictly or just doing an obstacle courses in the garden. It is really important to keep yourself fit, healthy and ready to learn.
Each week a whole Trust challenge will be set for all children from nursery to Year 6 to complete. This week the challenge is to make a 8 page mini book and year 2 will be doing this challenge as part of Thursday’s literacy home learning (see this video on how to make one).
Finally in a few weeks time, we will be doing some learning around the story ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes so to get a head start Miss Rolfe, Mr Staniforth and Mrs Sullivan have videoed themselves reading the first three chapters of the book. At some point this week have a listen to the three chapters. After you have listened to each chapter you may want to write down or speak to a family member about what has happened in the story so far, any predictions you might have of what might happen next, talk about the characters you like or dislike and talk about any language or words you found interesting or were not sure what they meant, maybe you could look them up with a grown up.
Don’t forget to send photos of any spectacular learning to firstname.lastname@example.org.
