Class 2

‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’

Well done to everyone and thank you to those who have shared photos and video of the children learning. We have so enjoyed seeing what you are all getting up to. Don't forget to take pictures of learning going on at home so that we can add them to our class learning photos for everyone to share.

WELCOME TO CLASS 2

Good morning and welcome to Terrific Tuesday! We are nearly at the end of term 4 now and it will be time for the Easter holidays.

Spelling and handwriting: Choose another five of your common exception words and practice their spelling. Write them into sentences and show your best handwriting. Perhaps you could ask a parent or sibling to test you on the 20 spellings that you have learnt over the last two weeks - how many can you remember correctly?

English: Carry on with the next activity about Auntie Comfort - we are nearly at the end of the chapter now.

Guided reading: Read another section of your home reader. Think about what you like an dislike about the book so far. Remember to say why you think these things.

Maths: Complete worksheet 7 - are you feeling confident telling the time? Are you able to work out the time differences between activities? Perhaps you could time your family and see how long it takes them to clean their teeth? Get dressed? Prepare dinner?

Science: You have already made one habitat to keep watch on over the Easter holidays, are you beginning to see anything happen in your wormery - record the changes that have taken place since you made it. Today you either need to try to make another habitat outside in your garden or observe one that is already out there carefully - wrap up warm though because it is cold out there!

The link takes you to the Wildlife watch pages

https://www.wildlifewatch.org.uk/explore-wildlife/habitats/towns-and-gardens

Scroll down the page until you find the Activities section, click on the take a look here and click on this. It will take you to a very long list of activity sheets. Look through the list and see if you can find the one called How to make a mini nature reserve.

If you do not have anything that you can use to make a nature reserve for you to watch over the holiday, have a look at a part of your garden. Record what creatures you can find in there now and look carefully over the next few weeks as the weather improves and see what changes. Are there any different creatures or plants there? You could take photographs to keep a record or set up a chart in your book to write down what is changing in your habitat / reserve.

If you want to compare the habitat in your garden with somewhere else, perhaps you could research a desert/ jungle / polar / rocky habitat and see what is different and what is the same.

 

Good morning Class 2!

I hope that you have had a lovely weekend and didn't get too cold in the hail and snow on Sunday. Your work for week 2 of home learning is below.

Spelling and handwriting:  Please choose another 5 words from the common exception word list and practice these with look, cover, write, check. Then write your spellings into sentences in your best handwriting. Are you checking that your letters are formed the correct size and have the lead in and lead out?

English: Please complete the next activity to do with the chapter on Auntie Comfort.

Guided Reading: 

 

 

  • What has happened here?
  • Why is the boy hanging from the tree?
  • Why is she wearing ice skates but he isn’t?
  • What might she be saying to him?
  • How is he going to get down?
  • What happened 5 minutes before this scene? What will happen 5 minutes after?
Picture 1

When you have completed the picture questions, do make sure that you read your book with your parent or carer and talk about the story. If there were any words that you didn't understand, check them in a dictionary.

Maths: Complete Worksheet 6 please in your book. We are still on the theme of time. Why not try to work out what times during the day you are doing things and how long they take?

RE:  Can you think of 5 things that are associated with Easter for Christians? Draw them into your book and write why you think we have these pictures or symbols and what they teach Christians about the story of Jesus dying on a cross.

Eg. A cross without a figure of Jesus: This shows Christians  that Jesus died on the cross, but then he rose into heaven leaving behind an empty cross and showing people that he had risen from the dead.

Music:  Remember all the work we did on rhythms in school? Where you have four beats and you make different values to fit together:

wasp          wasp            wasp           wasp

 

beetle        beetle          beetle          beetle

 

These fit together with two sounds in beetle fitting into the same amount of time it takes for one wasp - 2 halves making one whole!

 

Can you use some of your drum rhythms to makes a piece of music? You may need someone to play with you so you can hear how your djembe music sounds!

 

Finally, do take some pictures of what you get up to this week so that we can include them on our class page in the photo section.

Have fun and keep in touch!
