Riddles

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.

Minibeasts

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.*

Home Learning-Easter Holidays

Hello,

Over the holiday, don’t forget to read lots. You could make a list of the books you have read and share them with your class when you get back.

Practise counting in twos, fives, tens and threes and try having a go at learning your times tables.

If you visit anywhere special, you could write about your visit, ready to share with the class when you get back. Don’t forget to use capital letters and full stops!

We hope you all have a restful Easter Holiday.

Easter Bunny

Yesterday 2T really enjoyed their visit to  Ladywell Park to meet the Easter Bunny. They took with them some cards they had made for the bunny, to make him feel a bit better. Sadly, this week a pesky fox had stolen the bunny’s eggs and the bunny had been feeling quite sad.

It was all ok in the end, the eggs were found and everyone enjoyed eating them.

Fire Brigade Visit

On Monday Year Two had a very special visit from the Lewisham Fire Brigade. They came along with two of their fire engines, which they drove onto the playground!

2T were lucky enough to go outside first and have a look at the fire engine in more detail. The children got to see all the equipment behind the shutters, climb on board and have a look at all the gadgets. Then everyone got to try a helmet on. Once the children had climbed out the other side they each had a turn using the hoses. It was a lot of fun.

After this we all went inside and met Mark and Mustafa, who taught us all about fire safety.

It was a fantastic visit enjoyed by everyone.
