Week beginning Monday 30th March 2020
Good morning Year 2! Today is the last day of home learning before the Easter holidays.  We won't be posting any daily work over the next 2 weeks, so enjoy some relaxing time with the family.  We do however have the challenges that you have all come up with - have a go at as many as you like and send us a message on seesaw to show us how you are getting on!  There will also be a general list of activity ideas that you can choose from which will be posted up on the website shortly.  We hope you have a fantastic Easter break and don't eat too much chocolate!

Home learning task

Today the class were meant to be going on a teddy bear’s picnic on the Alfred Major. The children were going to be preparing their own food as part of our DT project. Two weeks ago we did a taste testing to see which foods were the class’s favourite. If possible, it would be nice if you were still able to complete this activity. Children will need to prepare as much of the picnic as possible. Remember to take your teddy out with you. If you want to move this activity to another day, why not make invites to your teddy bears and families?

Good morning children and welcome to your second week of learning from home. The whole Year 2 team are hoping that you are well and sending you all our best wishes. We look forward to seeing more of your work sent to us on Seesaw soon.

 

Please remember to send Mrs Strawson your challenge ideas for your classmates.

The above link is for the White Rose Maths Home Learning page. They will be adding five lessons each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete their set activity successfully. It asks you to pause the video at certain places and answer questions before moving on to the next part of the video. This is not compulsory and may not follow exactly what our focus for the week is, it is purely a suggestion if you are looking for extra ideas in Maths.
