Row row row your boat gently down the stream  

If you see a crocodile don't forget to scream 

Row row row your boat gently 'cross the bay

Poetry

 

 

Read the poem below:

Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you.

But when the leaves hang trembling,

The wind is passing through.

 

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I.

But when the trees bow down their heads,

The wind is passing by.

 

Use a ‘quarter thinking sheet’ to help think about the meaning of the poem. A quarter sheet is a piece of paper divided into quarters: one quarter has an ear symbol ‘what can I hear’: one has an eye ‘what can I see’: one has words – ‘what words do I like/want to know more about’ and one has a question mark – ‘what do I need to find out’?

 

Using the quarter thinking sheet, you may also want to ask them about:

  • What could they visualise?
  • What could they hear?
  • What colours could they see?
  • What was the weather like in the poem?
  • How does this compare to the weather we experienced outside today?

Wednesday

Learn a poem by heart

Read the poem from yesterday again. Think of actions to go with the poem. Use these action to help you learn the poem by heart.

Thursday

Plan ideas for a new poem

Using the poem they have been learning as a model, talk about ideas and vocabulary for a similar poem, perhaps about a weather element, e.g. Who has held the sunshine? Who can stop the rain? Who has hugged a cloud?

 

Choose their own weather topic, e.g. storm and think of different adjectives to describe the storm. Can you think of any expanded noun phrases? E.g. The dark, spooky storm. The bright, yellow sunshine.

Spellings

You can be tested on your spellings which are in your green diary from before half term.

  1. RE - Epiphany: What is it? - CBBC Newsround With the help of an adult, follow the link and read all about Epiphany and why we celebrate it. Then draw or make 3 king puppets to retell the story. You could use lollipop sticks, toilet roll tubes or just drawings on a piece of paper. Think about what the Kings will say to each other when they see the star, on their journey and when they finally arrive in Bethlehem.
  2. RE –

If you have a Bible at home, show the children a copy of a Bible.  Explain how the Bible is God’s special book.  It is all about how much God loves and cares for people.  Describe how the Bible is the most important book that Christians use, because it is God’s Word, so it is always treated with reverence.  Like all special books we take care of it, make sure our hands are clean before we use it and keep it in a safe place.

There are two main sections in the Bible.  The Old Testament tells us about the time before Jesus. 

The New Testament tells us about Jesus and the beginning of the Church. 

Some of the books are called by the name of the person thought to have written them: Mark, Jeremiah, Peter.  Some are named after the person the story is about: Job, Ruth, Jonah.  One is called after an event: Exodus.  Others tell you about the content of the book: Genesis (Beginnings), Psalms, Proverbs, Letters.  The Bible is like a library of different books.

 

Choose one of the links below, or if you have your own Children’s Bible, read a story from it and discuss what it is trying to tell us.

The Christian Story of the Good Samaritan and the Lost Sheep: ww.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-studies-ks1-the-christian-story-of-the-good-samaritan-and-the-lost-sheep/zr7wxyc

The story of Jesus’ disciples, Peter and Andrew: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zbyr87h

 

Challenge: Design a front cover for the Bible that shows it is a special book for the People of God.  On the back cover write a summary of what you would find inside.

Art –

We will be creating repeating patterns. Can you create any repeating patterns?

 

ICT – Log onto DB primary or Times Table rockstars to have a play.

 

PE - Try and get outside if you have a garden. If it is rainy why not ask your family to put on an exercise video that you can enjoy. The Joe Wicks ones are still on You Tube or maybe try Just Dance or similar.

 

Music – Understanding Pulse. Watch the video to learn about pulse, how to find it and how to move our body in time to the beat.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/understanding-pulse-cdk38c

Welcome back to Term 2. 

Every week we will put a piece of optional homework on the website that you and your child can access. Only do it if you feel that your child would benefit from it and you have the time to do it with them. Homework should not cause stress in your household. 

Homework will be sent on a Friday every week. If it needs to be returned, please return before the following Friday. 

Please remember the expectation for ALL children is that they read 4 times a week and have an adult sign/make a comment in their green reading records. Thank you in advance with this.

Day of the week

Activity 1

Activity 2

Monday

English:

Write about your Elf at home. What is he/she called? What has he been up to the last few days? Are they good or naughty? If you don’t have an Elf at home you could write about Christmas in a different way. If you were to decorate your house with Christmas decorations, how would you decorate it?

History:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z82xpv4

Watch the link to learn about the history of flight. Use google to find pictures of a kite, a hot air balloon, an airship and a glider. Which do you think they were invented? Investigate and find out!

 

Tuesday

RE:

Read the attached story of the Annunciation.

 

Hot seat Mary, asking her to recall what had happened and to find out how she felt about being chosen to be the mother of Jesus.

 

DT:

Go on a mechanisms hunt around the house. Where can they see mechanisms in action e.g. door hinges and locks, clocks, swings, knobs on cookers, etc

Describe the type of movement e.g. around in a circle, in an arc, forwards in a straight line, forwards and backwards in a straight line.

Ask the pupils to explain how the movement is created? Science link to forces – so refer to push and pull which will occur in later units.

 

Think of some questions that will help you find out about mechanisms. e.g.

Which ones are in a car, hairdryer, toys?

How many mechanisms are in my house?

Which famous inventors used mechanisms?

Do mechanisms make life easier?

Which is the cleverest mechanism?

Wednesday

History:

Draw a picture of what you think an inventor looks like. Google the story of the Wright brothers. Do they match the pictures you have drawn? What qualities do you think the brothers possessed that made them such successful inventors? You could research some other inventors particularly women (Mary Anderson invented the windscreen wiper in the same year the Wright brothers took flight) and add any further qualities you think are appropriate.

It would be interesting to discuss how often inventors were laughed at or ignored when they first showed people their inventions, what quality did they need to overcome this? How are these qualities important when we are learning something new?

Can you now draw a more accurate picture of an inventor labelled with the qualities they have discussed?

PE: Try and get outside if you have a garden. If it is rainy why not ask your family to put on an exercise video that you can enjoy. The Joe Wicks ones are still on You Tube or maybe try Just Dance or similar.

Thursday

RE:

Use the attached document to read the story of the Visitation. When Mary goes to visit Elizabeth her cousin whom she loved to help her prepare for her baby. Mary did not think of herself, but went to visit Elizabeth who was elderly and also expecting a baby. She was prepared to travel a long way.

 

Using the text of Mary’s Song, highlight the words that describe God.  Use these words to help, write your own song of Praise to God to help you prepare lovingly for the coming of Christ at Christmas.

 

Art:

What imaginary flying creatures do you know about? e.g. dragons, unicorns.

With an adult google different images of mythical flying creatures. (Warning - some images of creatures can be quite scary, caution may be needed!).

Can you identify the different animals they are made from.

Animals to include could be:

Phoenix, Griffin, Wyvern, Pegasus, Winged unicorns, Hippogriff

 

You are going to create you own flying beast. You might like to chop up lots of different animals to create a new animal e.g. body of cow, head of a monkey, wings of an eagle.

Friday

ICT/ Spellings:

Log into Times Table Rockstars to play! If you need times tables added, please email Mrs Knight to let Miss Cox know.

Art:

Create a 3D birds to use as decorations on the Christmas tree.

Use a bird shaped piece of card – cut a slot in the top and insert either wing shaped piece with the opposite slot cut in it, or a small paper fan slotted horizontally into it.

 

Decorate the pieces separately and then put them together again.

A piece of thread can be sewn through the bird so that it can be hung on a Christmas tree.

                Why did you paint yourself grey?

Write your questions and responses in your purple writing book. 

 

Invitation

Design and create an invitation to invite the other elephants to celebrate ‘Elmer Day’. Don’t forget to include the ‘colourful’ dress code.

Dear year 2 parents and children,

TERM 6 - WEEK 1 - 1st-5th June 2020

I hope you all had a lovely half-term and a well-deserved rest!

This week our English work is based on the book ‘Mr. Elephant’s Rio Tour’. I’ve attached a copy of it as a PowerPoint. Please ensure you’ve read it with your child before trying to complete any of the suggested activities (remember you don’t have to do them all).

This week, I have provided you with a daily My Maths lesson and online homework. This week’s focus is ‘addition’.  I am also providing you with a range of practical activities that you might like to do instead. Please remember that you’re only expected to do one activity from the maths section each day. You might like to do an online activity or a practical – the choice is up to you (do what works best for your family).

You’ll notice a new feature in ‘Column D’ of the planning. We hope you have now finished your projects (obviously if you’re still working on them continue to). Column D will now be used for ‘Topic Suggestions’. These suggested activities could therefore be completed during the afternoon. As you can see, I’m keeping my suggestions running over a two week period 1st – 12th June. I’ve organised it in this way as an activity might last longer than one afternoon, especially subjects like D&T and Art. Please don’t feel like you need to complete all of these activities! I would also like to highlight that yesterday (Sunday 31st May) was the celebration of Pentecost. Therefore, it would make sense to complete the R.E activities related to this sooner rather than later.

Thank you for your support as always.

Mrs. Carrá

Dear Year 2 parents and children,

Week 2 - 27th April - 1st May 2020

I have provided a list of activities that your child can choose from; please remember that they are only expected to complete one activity (from each section) each day. If you have any ideas that you would like to pursue, feel free to experiment and adjust as you like.

The maths is a little different this week, as I have provided an online lesson and homework to complete on My Maths (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). However, if you would like to reduce screen time, then please feel free to opt for a practical activity (from the list provided) on Tuesday and Wednesday. On some days you won’t be able to do it all and that’s fine. You can only do your best!

I hope you’re enjoying your learning at home! 

Thank you for your support,

Week 2 - Powerpoint - Cinderella

 

 

Dear Year 2 parents and children,

Week 1 - 20th-24th April 2020

I wanted to start off by firstly saying how much Miss Foster and I miss you! I’m constantly wondering how you’re all getting on. When we are reunited again, I’ll definitely keep my promise and we will have our ‘Pizza Party’ to celebrate!

I would like to reassure all parents, that I fully appreciate and understand the pressures that come with home schooling. I want you to know that your child’s and family’s happiness should come first. I know you’re all trying your best, and that’s all that we can ask of you! I have tried extremely hard to produce a range of activities that reduce ‘screen time’ and opt for more practical activities. In some cases, this may not always be possible due to the nature of the unit (but I will try my best).

I have devised my home learning grid in a way that will (hopefully) give you more freedom over what you do with your child. I have provided a list of activities that your child can choose from; please remember that they are only expected to complete one activity (from each section) each day. If you have any ideas that you would like to pursue, feel free to experiment and adjust as you like. Please remember, this is only guidance. On some days you won’t be able to do it all and that’s fine. As I said previously, we can only do our best!  

Do contact the office should you need a phone call from me or advice with any aspects of your child/children’s learning.

Thank you for your continued support, I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

God bless,

Mrs. Carra

B            English based activities

Key text: Jack and Beanstalk

Please read a version of Jack and the Beanstalk. If you don’t have a copy of the book at home, please follow the link for an online version: https://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/short-stories/jack-and-the-beanstalk

After you have read the story, choose one of the following activities to complete. Remember, you only need to complete one activity each day. I’ve provided extra activities so that you can choose which ones you would like to do.

Act

Create your own puppets (think about who the main characters are) and role-play the story.

 

Responding to Reading

Write a book review of Jack and the Beanstalk. Don’t forget to include a short summary of the story, and if you would recommend it. How many stars would you give it?

Design

Design a front cover for the story. The more colourful and imaginative the better!

 

Summarise

Write a blurb for the story. Don’t forget that the blurb gives readers an idea of what the book is about (without giving too much away). Most of all, it should encourage people to want to read the book.

Character Description

Choose a character from the story and create a character profile. You should write about their appearance, personality and actions (what does this character do in the story). I would definitely include a sketch of the character too!

Creative Writing

Write your own version of Jack and the Beanstalk. You could change one of the characters or the setting (or both).

Music – Rhythm and Rhyme

Follow the link and learn a collection of songs which retells the entire story. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-jack-and-the-beanstalk-index/z7jq8xs

C Maths activities

Monday: please login to My Maths and complete the online lesson and homework. This will give you an introduction to this week’s topic of ‘Length and Height’. Once you have completed the online learning you can pick one of the following activities to complete each day (I’ve provided extra so you can choose).

 

1. Choose a variety of objects and practice measuring them using a centimetre ruler. Remember to line up the object to the 0 mark on the ruler.

e.g. How long is the pencil to the nearest centimetre?

 

2.  Play this online measuring game: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/measuring-in-cm

 

3. Investigate: ‘The taller you are, the longer your shoes are.’

Measure the height of people in your family and measure the length of their shoes.

 

4. Cut up some ribbon or string. Practise measuring the different pieces with a ruler. Order them from shortest to longest.

 

5. Choose five objects from your bedroom. Measure them using a ruler. Order the objects from shortest to longest. Write at least three sentences to describe the objects using the words longer, longest, shorter and shortest.

 

6. Measure some objects in your house with Lego. Can you make a prediction before measuring the object?

 

D Home Learning Project

 

Each child to work on their own choice of project that interests them. It could be anything that ignites their enthusiasm. It could be Deserts, Saturn, Titanic, Penguins, The Bee Gees…. Just follow their passions! Projects will be displayed in the hall on return to school for everyone to see. Be creative! Include Art, Geography, photos of models, History, Cooking. Have fun!
