Week 4 w/b 11th May
It’s Week 4 already Year 2, and we are continuing to receive some great work from you. It’s great to know that there are lots of good Samaritans out there but quite a few people who would also willingly steal a bear’s favourite hat!
As always, the week’s activities are listed on the overview sheet and the accompanying resources can all be found below. Of course, if you have any questions, please do get in touch and we will do our best to help.
We are going to continue revising addition and subtraction this week, using similar activity sheets as last week.
There are video tutorial links available to support the learning for all of these lessons, which are accessible here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ There will be a challenge posted on the White Rose website for Friday.
This week’s Literacy work is based on the story of ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’. In addition to reading, spelling and grammar tasks, there are also some practical and creative ideas in the booklet for you to explore!
There were some weird and wacky goings-on with the science experiments last week! In general, the seeds have been behaving as you predicted, but there have been some freaky developments with seeds shooting up without sun or water. Can you think about why that might happen? Was the soil completely free of water when you started? Is there a little bit of light reaching the pot without sun? Did you plant some seeds deeper than others? Have a think about some likely explanations.
For this week’s science, Mrs Porter is going to set up an experiment for both Year 2 classes, so watch the video that will be uploaded onto Seesaw during the week.
A new addition in the ‘Active’ tasks this week! We know that one of the things you’re missing the most about being at school is seeing and playing with your friends everyday. To help with this, we want to set up regular video challenges where you send us your short video clips (up to 10 seconds) so that we can put them together to make a class video to share with you all! The more of you that take part in these, the better the video will be – parents, siblings and pets are also welcome to join in!
For the first of these challenges, we would like to invite you to ‘Get flossing with your friends!’ The ‘Floss Dance’ was popular in the playground a couple of years ago, so some of you with older brothers and sisters might already know how to floss! A factfile and instructions can be found below. There are also lots of tutorial videos online – parents please check these before sharing with your children!
We hope you have another fantastic week of home learning; please keep sharing your work online and we look forward to seeing you flossing!
