Class 2 have two teachers, Miss Spivey and Mrs Rawson who job share. We explore exciting themes which enable us to cover all aspects of the curriculum. Themes we will be investigating this year are: Beside the Seaside, Christmas is Coming, Communication, There and Back and A Land Down Under. Children will be set regular weekly homework and sometimes a small project.
INFORMATION FOR HOME LEARNING
Unfortunately, the school has had to close due to COVID-19. Below you will find a daily update of the activities set for home learning.
Home Learning for Thursday 2nd April
If you are finding it difficult to complete the activities set each day, please feel free to continue some of the less structured ones on another day or please contact us via our email. If you could do the daily online activities, it is helpful as we can assess children’s progress. An email and photograph as you complete other activities would be great.
Hello Class Two,
9am – If you are feeling energetic then start your day with Joe Wicks
Maths –Please continue with Maths Whizz. Spend 20/30 mins working on your activities.
English – Please continue with Purple Mash. Your 2Do today – Create your own Traditional tale. The word box on the left will give you some tips (hover over the words) You might want to import pictures (click on the green cross in each box to choose a picture) or add your own illustrations. This is a longer activity and I would like you to work hard but take your time. You can finish this tomorrow and I will not set a ‘2 Do’ for Friday.
Science – Keeping Healthy
(Complete the activity from Wednesday if you are still working on it) What do animals need to eat to stay fit and healthy? Some animals only need to eat one kind of food. Koalas only eat the leaves of the eucalyptus tree. Panda bears only eat bamboo. Other animals need to eat lots of different kinds of food to stay healthy. Black bears eat roots, leaves, fruit, nuts, insects, eggs, meat, fish and honey.
Choose an animal and find out about what it eats and how it gets its food. Record what you find in your Home Learning book.
If you have already completed this, move onto the definitions activity below:
Sticky Knowledge key words

balanced diet, dehydrate, energy, exercise, heart rate, hygiene, nutrition, pulse
Remember to have a break and get some fresh air and exercise. Enjoy your day everyone,
From Miss Spivey
