I hope that everyone had a lovely day yesterday and managed to get some of your home learning tasks done. I know there were a few problems with the website.
Today you have English, Maths, Geography and PE.
Please remember to send your work to me by 8pm this evening and I’ll reply to you tomorrow. The email address is – firstname.lastname@example.org
In English you will look at some instructions that I have written. You need to add an adverb to each instruction. Also you could add some extra details or adjectives. The PowerPoint will guide you through this. Thursday Verbs and Adverbs
If you get this completed you could use some lego blocks, dry pasta or sweets to make your own groups, similar to these in this photo.
In geography we will be starting to learn about London and some of the landmarks in London. Today, I’d like you to complete some research about London. Click here to access a very good website, but you can use other websites too.
I didn’t expect to be talking to you today through our home learning platform. Hopefully this won’t last too long and you’ll all be back in school with us very soon.
Everyday over the next few weeks I’ll be setting you some work to complete at home. This will include all the subjects we do do in school; English, Maths, RE, Geography, History, Science, Music, Art, Computing and DT.
Please send all your completed tasks to email@example.com by 8pm tonight so I can see all of the the work you have done. Please send all of your work in one email. This will really help me! I will reply by the end of the day tomorrow.
Here are your tasks for today.
Reading regularly is very important. Please make sure that you do lots of reading at home. You may choose to read one of your own books or you could access Oxford Reading Owl (www.oxfordowl.co.uk) then go to My Class Login to choose a book to read. The username and password is y2smst Please try to read something every day.
In English we are going to finish our work linked to instructions over the next couple of days. On Monday we thought carefully about verbs and you were able to find lots of verbs in some stories that you read.
Today we will be looking at verbs and adverbs. Look carefully at the PowerPoint below and then try to complete the activity sheet.
In maths we are going to continue with our multiplication for the next week. We are going to begin by recapping some things we have already learnt. Today we will look at recognising equal groups. You need to watch the video below and then complete the activities on the sheets attached.
Why did the Wise Men travel so far to visit Jesus?
Who was the first person that they visited? Why was this and how did he react?
How did the Wise Men find their way to where Jesus was born?
What were the gifts they offered?
Now you need to take some time and think carefully about this story and the lovely gifts they took for baby Jesus. If you were to visit baby Jesus what gift would you take for him? You need to draw a picture of your gift and then explain what this is and why you have chosen this gift.
Finally, to end the day I thought I’d send you a link to an art website. It shows you how to draw many different things. Today, because it is the feast of the Epiphany I have uploaded the video to show you how to draw the Three Wise Men. Try your best and remember everyone can draw!
Have a lovely day everyone! Work hard and remember to always try your best in all of your work.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and looking at your work!
Year 2 celebrated the birth of Jesus through collective worship. The children talked about how God promised to send Jesus and he came on Christmas day. They thanked God for giving us Jesus and thought about the different names Jesus is given.
Year 2 completed their landmark paintings in the style of Georges Seurat’s pointillism today. The children worked very carefully using a cotton bud to create the dots. Can you spot which landmark they painted?
