Home Learning 6.6.19


In our English and Science lessons we have been learning all about different types of minibeasts.

For your homework this week pick an activity from the list below, don’t forget to bring it in and show your teacher what you have done.

  1. Draw and label a picture of a minibeasts habitat.
  2. Go on a bug hunt in the park or garden and see what minibeasts you can find.
  3. Draw and label a life cycle picture of a butterfly, ladybird or beetle.

We were really impressed with all the home learning we saw last week, so are looking forward to what we might see next week!

Half term home learning

This term we will be learning about mini beasts! It was great to start the half term by sharing some research completed over the half term about mini beasts.

If you have some research you would like to share don’t forget to bring it in!

Exploring Habitats – 2S

This week we have begun looking at and describing different habitats.

On Wednesday we learnt about 4 different types of habitat:

  • Urban habitat
  • Woodland habitat
  • Coastal habitat
  • Pond habitat

Can you describe the habitats that we looked at? What animals/plants live their and why?

Today we explored our local habitat. We went to Ladywell fields to identify trees and flowers as well as name some geographical features.

As it was such a lovely day and to celebrate all the hard work we have done so far this term we had a treat on our trip to the park!

Next half term we will be exploring minibeasts and their habitats.

Over the half term can you find out interesting facts about a minibeast of your choice?

You could visit the library to research in a book, use the internet for research or ask someone at home what they know.

You could find out what they eat, where they live, what they look like and any other interesting facts.

You can choose how to present your information. Here are some ideas:

  • Make an information poster
  • Write an information book
  • Draw and label a picture of your minibeast

Catford Walk

This afternoon 2S went on a local walk around Catford. We were looking for things we would see in a town. We have been reading ‘Town Mouse and Country Mouse’ and comparing the country to towns.

On our walk we saw; the Catford cat, the Broadway Theatre, Laurence House and the library as well as the post office, a church, the train station, some street art and the Council Building.

2S walked sensibly on the walk and noticed how busy Catford was in the daytime as well as the traffic and buses.

“We saw the roads were very busy, there was lots of traffic and lots of people walking around so we stayed together” – Caleb

“There was lots of people so we had to look carefully to stay safe.” – Taiwo

“I liked seeing Laurence House” – Aaron

“I liked seeing the Broadway Theatre” – Eva

“Keep away from the kerb when walking” – Gustavo

“I liked the street art” – Hayyan

“I liked the church because it reminded me of where I used to live” – Izzy

“I think the country mouse would like to see the park” – Samson

“I think country mouse would be scared in Catford because there are lots of people and cars and tall buildings” – Sapphire

Year 2 Home Learning

Over the past 2 weeks in Maths we have been pracitising a range of strategies for answering questions with all 4 operations.

Look at the operation signs below, can you name them? Can you tell someone what happens to a number when you do this operation (does it get bigger/smaller?) How can you write a number sentence with this operation?

We have been using pictorial representations to help us answer these questions and the number facts we already know. E.g a blank numberline, or drawing dienes.

Choose a number in the red circle, choose an operation and then choose a number in the green triangle. Can you make a number sentence?

*Challenge – Now choose your own numbers, or ask someone to choose some for you.*

This week we have been using money to problem solve. Look at the coins below, can you name them all?

Imagine you are going to the bakery. You have 1 silver coin. What items could you buy? What if you chose a different silver coin, what could you buy then?

Choose 2 items or 3 items from the bakery. How much would they cost altogether?

*Challenge* – Can you find change? Choose a silver coin and then choose an item to buy. Use an empty numberline to subtract the price from the amount of the coin.

E.g: Use the numberline to say the answer below.
