This week in Science we have been learning about the importance of recycling, reducing and reusing. For your Home Learning this week, we would like you to create a poster or write a poem explaining why these things are important for our environment! Watch the clip below to help you.
On Thursday 2nd February 2023, we will be taking part in a workshop with the Rainbow Theatre Company. The session will be based on using drama to re-enact key events that took place during The Great Fire of London! In preparation, we would like you to create a poster showing everything that you have learnt about the topic so far!
When did the fire happen? How did it start? Why did it spread so quickly?
Remember to include pictures and don’t forget to bring your posters in to share with the class. We look forward to seeing your work!
This term, Mini Grey is our author focus! Mini has written and illustrated a range of books which we will be reading and doing activities on over the next few weeks.
So far, we have learnt a lot of interesting facts about Mini. For example, she is named after the car Mini (Cooper) because she was born in the backseat of one!
We would like you to write a few short sentences telling us some interesting things about yourselves (your favourite colour, where you were born, if you have any siblings, any hobbies etc). Remember, to use full stops, capital letters and finger spaces in your writing. You can illustrate your work too!
For your Home Learning this week, we would like you to go on a ‘Material Hunt’ around your homes.
In Science, we will be identifying different materials, their properties and uses. Take a look around your home and see what items you can find. What are they made from? Is it wood, plastic, metal, glass, brick, paper or cardboard? Draw/make a list to record your findings.
This week, for your Home Learning, we would like you to practise spelling your Common Exception Words! Take a look at the words below (remember, some of these words and more can also be found in the front of your Reading Record).
To help you practise why don’t you try…
Look, cover, write and check – the link below is a game you can play to help you with this! (Year 2, Tricky Words, Tricky 1-6)
