Thank you for all your patience in this difficult time. Your child has been shown all home learning tasks so nothing should be new or too difficult. Please help your child as and when needed and remember I am at the end of a dojo or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Tasks, websites and apps
*Purple Mash- 2 do activities- I will try and keep up to date with marking these. The Maths and English games should be played daily. Please think carefully about any written work you complete on Purple Mash and ensure that it has all the features a Y2 writer should have (capital letters, question marks and full stops in the correct places, finger spaces and ascenders and descenders. Use wow vocabulary, conjunctions such as and, but, or, when, if, that, because to join sentences. More able children should use suffixes such as ment, ness, ful, ly, less)
*History/Geography-Research a famous explorer such as Scott, Shackleton, Hillary or Grylls. Produce a non chronological report about your explorer. Listen to the oceans and continents song (see link below). Research mountains and life in the North and South Pole.
*RE-Find out about symbols associated with Easter. Draw and write about them. Which matter most? Why? Do the outdoor Easter hunt.
*Spelling- Practice the Y2 spelling list. The link is below. I will also add weekly spelling and phonic patterns to this page.
*If you have an IDL log in or 'Teach my monster to read' log in, use it each day and complete the lessons.
* Log on to Phonic bug daily and complete the tasks to earn coins and rewards!
*Art- Draw/paint a picture which is inspired by water. We are studying Hokusai, Hockney, Monet and Pissaro. Research one of these artists and their work.
