There are lots of online songs to help with learning the times tables. Children in year 2 need to learn their 2 times tables, 5 times tables and 10 times tables. It would be helpful if they could also learn their three times table and count in threes.
We are looking at Rules and Responsibilities this term. Think about any rules you have about the house. Write them down in a list and think about why we have rules. Look at the PowerPoint about belonging to a group. Create your own shield to show you belong to this group. Think of the rules you have for this group, are they the same as you have at home or different?
In Science this half term we are learning about materials and their properties. We will ensure we are using the correct scientific vocabulary to label and describe these materials.
Task: Look around your house at different items. Can you write a list of what materials these items are made from e.g.:
Coffee table - wood
Window - glass
Challenge: Can you write a reason why you thing that item is made from that specific material?
Example: Windows are made from glass because glass doesn't break easily and it is transparent.
In Geography this half term we are looking at the local area of Brightlingsea. We will identify the key landmarks in Brightlingsea such as Bateman's Tower and the Lido. We will be creating our own maps including a key and enhancing our map reading skills.
Task: Look at the treasure map below. Can you create your own treasure map. Make sure you include a key and a compass so that the pirates know which direction to go.
Challenge: Can you write or tell someone directions from a place on your map to the treasure e.g. First head South past the cruise ship, next turn East towards the Sandy Cove.
This term we are looking at printing. An artist that uses printing is Andy Warhol. Look at the PowerPoint and then write some facts you have learnt. Try to recreate one of his famous paintings and repeat the images through drawing and colouring. Is it easy to recreate? Do you think it might be easier to repeat by printing?Enter text...
Extra! Extra! If you want some more work to do have a look at these. Vocabulary ninja helps you to increase your vocabulary. Practise putting the different words into sentences.
Once Upon a time is a great activity for our Vipers especially interpret. Choose a picture and answer the questions about it.
Listen to the Continent songs. Can you learn one of them and film it and send it to your teacher to listen to.
