Art – Textures

Today we explored textures in our environment. We went into the playground and investigated surfaces and materials. When we found a good texture we did a rubbing using thin paper and crayons.

Look at the rubbings below. Can you tell where they came from?

Next week in English we will be learning about riddles.

See if you can find what a riddle is at home. Can you find a book that has some riddles in or maybe you could find some riddles on the internet. Why not write your own riddle and bring it in and show us.

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!

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

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.*
