Last week, lots more children attended their class Google Meets and it was so lovely to see more of your faces. We have lots more class Google Meets happening this week again. Please check out the ‘Extra activities’ tab for information on days, times and nicknames. Don’t forget you will need your .306 log on details to help you log on, if you do not have these details please email the team on email@example.com at least one day before your Meet. Detailed instructions and a timetable of this week’s meetings can be found here.
On the 12th July, it is National Simplicity Day. When I was looking for awareness days this week, this one make me stop and think. We have spent lots of time at home over the last few months but have there been days where we have spent too much time watching TV, playing video games, playing on the computer or playing on a grown ups mobile phone? National Simplicity Day is all about put our phones and technology away and spending time with our families, enjoying the simple things. Maybe you could play a board game, do a puzzle, help out with some cooking or baking or even sit outside and read a book in the fresh air. Let us know what you get up to!
We have lots more exciting activities planned this week. In literacy, we are continuing our work on sea life creatures and are creating a sea poem and writing a riddle. In maths, we will be re-capping money, looking a different ways we can make an amount and find the change. In DT, you will be making a sock puppet and we can’t wait to see what crazy creations you make! We also have a special ‘Year 2 memories’ lesson where you will be looking back on your time in year 2 and choosing your favourite memory and proudest achievements. Also, have a listen to Miss Wehnam reading two sea themed stories: ‘The boy who unplugged the sea‘ by Paul Brown and ‘What’s more scarier than a shark?‘ by Paul Bright.
