Good morning Year 2!
We hope you have had a lovely weekend at home. It still seems very quiet without you here and we miss you all. However, we do love reading the emails you have sent telling us what you have been up to at home, please keep them coming!
Below are some activities that we would like you to work on today and tomorrow.
Throughout this week in English, we are going to look at African animal poems. Can you guess what these animals are from the descriptions the poet uses?
Which was your favourite poem and why? Maybe you could perform your favourite poem to your family?
Think of an African animal and write down as many adjectives (describing words) as you can to describe your animal. Try to use words that describe what the animal looks like, how it moves, what sounds it might make or try to describe its characteristics. Can you think of words that start with the same sound (alliteration)? e.g. scary, scaly, skinny snake.
If you missed any of last week’s maths White Rose Maths has online lessons and activities.
In art we are going to paint some rainbow pictures to display outside school.
- First, draw your outline in pencil.
- Next, paint using rainbow colours.
- Finally, go over the pencil in thick black marker pen.
Please keep reading as much as you can. There are lots of ways you can read whilst at home.
- Pick up your favourite book to read for enjoyment!
- Read on bug club- everyone should have a new set of challenging reads. Email class teachers if you need this updating
- Access reading comprehension materials in your SATs booklets. Also there is nothing to stop you downloading past papers now that we won’t be using them in school. We have already done the 2019 papers.
- Sign up to the oxford owl website. This is free and has lots of useful ideas. There are free e-books to read on there (a bit like bug club) all linked to colour book bands/ages.
Thank you to everyone who has sent us emails of the children and their work. We have loved seeing what the children have been up to at home and it is so important that we stay in touch. Please keep sending us photos and updates. Here are our email addresses:
