Welcome to the final week of home learning. We would like to thank you all again for the support you have given over the last few months.

There is lots to look forward to this week. We are continuing the work on shape in maths and will be starting a new book in English called The Lemur’s Tale.

We look forward to seeing you in your PJs to celebrate books and reading on our final day of home learning!

There is a sheet in the pack that you are welcome to use for your own sorting activities. Cut out the shapes and make your own groups. You could make a venn diagram. How will you sort them? Think about what we have learned about sides, vertices and lines of symmetry.

Our main topic this half term is ‘Africa’. In geography lessons, children will be learning about the continent of Africa with a particular focus on Kenya. We will compare the human and physical features of Kenya with the UK.

We hope to produce some amazing art work this half term, inspired by Tinga Tinga art and African silhouette sunsets.

In our English lessons, we will be reading and writing traditional Tinga Tinga Tales as well as looking at animal poetry and non-fiction texts about African animals.

In maths this half term we will start by learning about shapes. We will look at both 2D and 3D shapes, learning all about their properties as well as being able to name, sort and compare them. We will then move onto fractions. The children will learn how to find fractions of shapes, lengths and amounts, as well as writing fractions and finding equivalence. Later in the half term we will be learning about measurement including time. Children in Year 2 need to be able to read the time to the nearest 15 minutes on a traditional analogue clock. If you can, please encourage your child to read the time at home.
