Hello Year 2!
We hope you are all well and enjoyed the home learning that we set for you last week. Now we have completed a week’s worth of learning, we hope you have found a good routine to keep you active and busy whilst staying indoors. The teachers are missing you all and we have loved seeing your faces and fantastic work in photographs that have been sent in through the home learning email. Please continue to send in photos and updates about how you are getting on. All spectacular work will be posted here to celebrate your hard work and hopefully help inspire other children in the year group. Remember the email to send your photos and messages is firstname.lastname@example.org. We even made a video of some of the children’s photos last week.
In literacy we are continuing our work on nocturnal animals, we will be taking a quiz and also solving and writing riddles. In maths we are working on multiplication and division.
For music this week, click here to practise clapping rhythms with Miss Freeman, and play the game ‘Which rhythm is it?’ Then, go to the website http://www.charanga.com/ and log on to the student section using the following details: username – p697846 password – robin. Click on the unit called ‘Friendship Song’ and listen to the song ‘We Go Together,’ then use the questions to help you talk about the music. Then click on ‘Flexible Games Track’ to dance along with Mr Bear and his friends. Finally have a go at learning verse 2 of the ‘Friendship Song’ and practise singing the song so far. Head over to the extra activities for more activities for children who have a musical instrument at home. Please also visit this link so you can take part in this week’s singing assembly.
This week’s Pegasus Academy Trust challenge is to take a virtual tour around an attraction anywhere in the world. Using a list of websites, you can choose your attraction and then explore it – all from the comfort of your home! Afterwards you could write a postcard or draw a picture of what you saw on your visit. Check out Wednesday’s learning page for more information.
We know you might be missing your friends and teachers from school, just the same as us teachers are, so this week we have a special ‘Lockdown Message’ task for you!
Don’t forget to keep active during your time at home. This week why don’t you visit Oti Mabuse’s Youtube page and choose one of her dance routines to learn. Another great activity is to design and make your own obstacle course, this could be inside or outside and can include things like: jumping jacks, bouncing the ball, aiming at a target, skipping etc. Remember to ask an adult before you use anything at home to make sure it is safe.
In preparation for next week’s learning around the story ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, Miss Wenham and Miss Rolfe have videoed themselves reading the final two chapters of the book. Have a listen to these chapters during the week. After each chapter, you may want to write down or speak to a family member about what has happened in the story. Were your predictions about the story correct? Is this the ending you were expecting?
This week, we have set you lots of new activities to complete and you can see an overview of the week’s learning below.
