Year 2 - our final week of home learning
Good morning everyone and welcome to our final Monday blog of home learning. What an amazing job you have all done, we are very proud of how hard you have worked and all the wonderful things you have been up to. You and your families have shown great resilience, determination and creativity.
This week we continue work based around the story of 'The Secret of Black Rock' by Joe Todd Stanton. This is a wonderful story that focuses on kindness and supporting change to look after the environment. Tasks this week include writing a letter of apology, creating a poster to promote environmental issues, writing expanded noun phrases, adding suffixes -ed and -ing to root words and exploring poetry.
As always you will be sent links to daily Read Write Inc videos, consolidating known sounds, learning new ones, reading and spelling words and writing sentences.
This Thursday is World Book Day and to celebrate we are going to share a book linked to 'colours' either in school or via 'Zoom'. You will be sent a Zoom invitation by email and a time to join your class teacher. Please feel free to dress up in your favourite colour(s). You will be given a voucher to spend on a book on your return on Monday 8th March.
We continue on the second week focusing on drawing and interpreting pictograms. Please watch the video on White Rose Maths that corresponds to each day 6-9 before completing the worksheet and true/false challenge. You will also find daily challenges in your pack that support basic Mathematical skills. Day 10 is an assessment sheet that will celebrate learning on 'Statistics' and identify any consolidation that can be completed.
Please continue to complete the tasks in your remote learning project pack focused on historical and scientific learning. You will find practical science experiments to explore and have a go at and also exploring World War 1 as a child, a woman and a soldier.
Your class teachers are looking forward to receiving your emails and sharing your wonderful learning. Keep up the hard work and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday 8th March.
