Go out into your garden and look carefully to see what you can see. Remember to look with your eyes and not to touch animals or insects when they outside in their natural habitats . You can download the attached activity sheet to record your results.
We will be writing the next section of our booklet for Miss Place today and telling her all about which areas of our learning we enjoy and which areas we might need a little help with. You will need your work from the last few days, your amazing brain and a sharp pencil.
Story Time with Mrs Velez Colby
There is information in the Power Point about your construction challenge for this afternoon. I would like you to design and make a house for Maureen the rat from our Great Fire on London videos. You can use any materials you like to make your little house and will need to plan your ideas carefully. The weather is supposed to be lovely this afternoon so you could even go outside ( check with mummy/ daddy first of course) and collect some natural resources and build your house outdoors in the fresh air.
You were all superstars yesterday and I was so impressed at how you all joined in and shared your brilliant ideas in our lesson. It has been wonderful looking through all the amazing work you sent me and being able to give you feedback on it.
Today’s learning is all attached in the Power Point below:
I was delighted to see so many of you had a go at my 3 star challenge so we will do the same again today. The 2 star challenge is a revision activity covering lots of areas you have previously learned with Miss Jenkins. The three star challenges will really make you think and use your problem solving skills.
In our English lesson today we will be carrying on with our writing all about you and making a really special booklet for Miss Place to tell her all about you. You will need your work from yesterday and a sharp pencil for the lesson.
This afternoon there is another short learning clip to watch following the adventures of Maureen the rat at the time of the Great Fire of London. The video also introduces Samuel Pepys and his famous diary.
To follow on from this I’ve attached a little reading quiz for this afternoon’s activity all about Samuel Pepys and his diary. There is a one, two and three star challenge in the attached document so have a look and decide which challenge is best for you (I would expect that most of you will do the one star challenge).
You will need to read the Information carefully to help you answer the questions.
I’m very excited to tell you all that I will be your teacher for the rest of this week while you are working at home. Miss Jenkins has told me just how wonderful you are and I can’t wait to see you all on zoom on Monday morning at 10 o’clock. I will keep everything the same for the rest of the week and I will use the blog and Power Points to set your work. I will also use the same zoom link and time for your live lesson each day ( 10am).
Here are the Maths Activity sheets. There is a sheet with 2 star activities for everyone to try then a sheet with 3 star activities for anyone who is feeling very confident and would like a real challenge. I always tell all the children in my classes that if they do their best, I’ll be impressed so have a go.
This week we are going to be making a little booklet to give to Miss Place who will be your new teacher from September . Each day we will do some brilliant writing together in our zoom lessons so you can tell Miss Place all about you, your family, what you enjoy learning about and what you are excited to learn with her in Year 2. You will also be able to show her your amazing handwriting and how well you can use your full stops and capital letters too.
You will need some lined paper or a page from your English book and a sharp pencil. You might want to have your whiteboard too so you can practice and experiment with your spellings as you write.
Please email me with any questions about your learning and send me some examples of your brilliant work each day so I can give you some feedback.
