blush Important Information blush

 

After half term, the school will provide home learning packs for all the children who are learning at home. These packs will be provided on a weekly basis (packs will be in the school office with Miss Taylor and will be ready for collection from Friday morning each week, apart from the first week of term where the packs will be ready for collection on Monday 22nd.) These packs will contain all the worksheets that your child will need for their subsequent week of learning. We also ask that you hand in your child’s completed home learning pack into school office when collecting their new pack. This way, I can have a look through all the fabulous work that your child has been doing and provide relevant feedback. If you still want to email me on a day-to-day basis, that is fine; it has been lovely receiving photos of the children engaging so well with the work they have been set! Along with all the worksheets that your child will need for their learning, the packs will also include resources to assist your child, for example, a whiteboard to use for their Zoom lessons, number lines, etc.

 

If you have any questions about the home learning packs, please email me: rachelwaddington97@yahoo.com

Internet Safety Day was on the 11th of February. This is a VERY important day and a very important thing to talk about with grown-ups. The internet an amazing tool, but can also be dangerous at times. Why do you think the internet can be a dangerous place? 

 

Please read through the PowerPoint attached below and talk to your grown-ups about how to stay safe on the internet.

A huge thank you!

 

To the parents and children of Year 2,

 

This half-term has been challenging to say the least. But you have all done such a fabulous job at embracing these challenges head-on. It has been so lovely for myself to get to know the children more this half-term (albeit over Zoom) and has been lovely speaking to each and every parent, whether it be on the phone, on Zoom or via email. Myself, Mrs Porter and Mrs Jones have all been blown away by some of the amazing work that you have been doing. So honestly, thank you so much for all your hard work (parents and children), I really do appreciate it and it does not go unnoticed! 

 

Have a lovely, well-deserved break! 

 

See you back here on Monday 22nd February, 

 

Miss Waddington, Mrs Porter and Mrs Jones.

Morning all! Hope you have all had an amazing weekend heart

 

This week I am going to see whether it works better uploading all the work at once, instead of daily.

 

There are three PowerPoints, one which includes all the maths and English work, one for the afternoon activities and one for spellings. Reading and EMA will still be uploaded onto the website, but I will upload the whole week's worth of resources instead of day-to-day. 

 

I hope this makes sense, let me know if you have any issues!

Focus questions: 

Which three animals does the Pencil draw to try and stop the rubber?

Do you agree with the author that the Pencil is brave and clever?

What do you think the other rubber will do?

Maths 

 

We have worked hard this week looking at our multiples of 2, 5 and 10. Today I want you to test your knowledge, sorting these numbers out into their multiples. 

 

Remember what we have said all week? Multiples of 2 ALWAYS end in what? 

Multiples of 5 always end in what? 

Multiples of 10 always end in what? 

 

Be careful with some of these numbers because they might be a multiple of 2, 5 and a multiple of 10. For example, the number 10 is in the two times tables, the 5 times tables and the 10 times table, so you would need to put the number 10 in all three boxes!

Your maths challenge today is to think about where these tricker numbers go, are they in the 2 times tables? 10 times tables? 5 times tables? Put them in the correct boxes on your worksheet. 

 

105, 200, 965, 410, 780, 365, 468, 1000, 329, 194

Computing: 

 

Today, instead of taking photos, I want you to make a collage. A collage is when you put lots of photos together. 

 

You have used the PicCollage at school, I want you to use this app (you might need to download this onto your device) and find pictures of the Great Fire of London on the internet. I then want you to make a collage of these photos. 

 

Remember to change the background, make it something exciting if you can! You can also add some funky stickers if you like laughyessmiley  It would also be great if you put some facts onto this collage.

 

If you cannot get PicCollage, try and use a different app you can make a collage using apps like word, PowerPoint, Keynote. 

 

This is the app icon for PicCollage:

These are some examples of PicCollages people have made - but these were not for the Great Fire of London. 
Here is an example I made! Look at the bright orange background, facts about the Great Fire of London and how I have put all the pictures together so it looks nice yes

We have been reading the book The Pencil. In the book, a lot of the emotions of the characters change. Today, I want us to have a little look at Pencil and how his feelings change because of other characters and things that happen! 

 

Your task is to cut and stick these four pictures of The Pencil over two pages, you need to then use adjectives to describe how the Pencil is feeling. 

 

Your challenge is to write a sentence about each picture, for example, if you think the Pencil is feeling happy, your sentence might say, "The Pencil is happy because he finally has a friend." 

 

Use the character adjective word mats to help you when describing how the Pencil feels yes

R.E 

 

Today in R.E we are learning another story from the Bible, the story of Jesus healing a paralysed man! When you are paralysed it means you cannot walk. 

 

Watch the video, read through the pictures (I have uploaded the PowerPoint at the top of the page if it is easier to look at that) and then fill out the worksheet. What you need to do is write in the speech bubbles what you think these people might be saying. For example, the person who has been healed might say, 'Wow, thank you, Jesus, I can walk again!"

What do you notice about my letter? 

Remember when writing your letter, you will need to add: 

1) An address 

2) Start your letter with 'Dear Syd' 

3) Finish your letter with, 'Love from Grandad' 

 

Why not challenge yourself and try to add:

Today in English, we are going to begin to look at how to write in the past tense! Remember from yesterday, that when we talk about the past, we are talking about something that has already happened?

 

One way we can talk/write about the past is by adding +ed to the end of words. Have a little look at the pictures below.

 

Today I want you to finish this worksheet +ed to the end of the words and then writing some of your own sentences.

Here is your extension activity. Remember when you are writing your sentences Year 2 that you remember your:

Our reading today links in with our science. Please listen to the audiobook, read along if you can!  

Maths:

 

Today in maths we are going to carrying on looking at halves and quarters. You will need to do is sort the following shapes into halves/quarters.

 

More shapes here if you want to sort these into halves and quarters as well. 

Science:

 

In science today we are going to look at the suitability of materials.

 

Suitability means is something right use, for example, you wouldn’t make a house out of hay, because the Big Bad Wolf might blow it down! But you could build it out of brick because bricks are stronger.

 

Brick is a suitable material to build a house with.

Can you please complete this worksheet - tell me what the object is made from and what makes it suitable for its use! 

 

For example: a blanket is made from fabric because it is comfortable and soft laugh
