Week 5 - commencing 4th May
Hello Year 2!
I hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for a new week of learning. You are working so hard in these circumstances and I am very proud of you all. I love seeing your work daily so please keep sending this to me. Take a look at the information below about the new class blog - perhaps you could talk about the fun activities you got up to at the weekend!
Activities of the Astronauts Blog
I have created a new blog for us on Purple Mash. This one is all about how we are keeping ourselves entertained whilst at home. It would be great to hear about the fun things you have been getting up to. Perhaps you have made a den, learnt a new skill, enjoyed baking or designed your own game for example.
Don't forget you can still add to the class reading blog and recommend books.
Don't forget, Friday is a Bank Holiday - so no work!
Make sure you have fun and relax!
We all agree that it’s really important that you are as well-prepared as possible for your next school year. To help make this happen, White Rose Maths and the BBC have joined forces! They’ve created a learning plan which means that you will have the opportunity to:
- understand the main concepts you need for your work next year
- cover any new learning that you haven’t yet done in school
Not only will you have White Rose slides to help you learn the content of the lesson, but the BBC maths lessons for the day will match! This means you can use the White Rose slides and the information on the BBC Bitesize website.
Every day, there will be a learning video on the White Rose web page to watch and a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content.
Each day, please can you:
- Read for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
- Practise your weekly spellings. (ball, walk, always, war, warm)
- Practise your times tables for 10 to 15 minutes on Times Tables Rock Stars.
- Do 30-60 minutes of exercise (follow the PE link for ideas).
- Complete the maths and literacy tasks.
- Complete the topic task.
PE with Derbyshire School Games
The School Games Organiser network and Active Derbyshire are working together to create and publish a weekly programme of activities to help children, just like you, to keep active whilst schools are closed and we are having to stay at home.
This week, they have created a series of activities around 'FOOTBALL'!
Open the document below to find a daily activity and lots of tips and guidance on how to do it. There's a bit of a quiz to get you started, then each day, you'll find a challenge. If you keep scrolling down, you'll find instructions and helpful diagrams to show you what to do.
Why not involve your family? You can all keep active and learn how to play football!
