Thursday 23rd April - St George's Day
We have added some extra tasks for St George's Day, including a story to read, a writing activity and some maths challenges. You might also want to design your own dragon! Perhaps you could make a model using items from your recycling? Or paint a picture? Perhaps you could make a cartoon to tell the story, with some pictures? We would love to see what you come up with - send us your pictures!
If you were looking for more work for your child to do, there are several websites that you can access that have daily lessons on. Please see below:
It is important to still ensure that your child is practising times tables (https://www.timestables.co.uk/ or Times Tables Rockstars).
Hi all, I have attached a document which outlines the end of year objectives that we aim to meet for Year 2 for each subject. Please use this document as a guideline as every child's learning is different and unique. It should help you see the expectation we have for our Year 2s and what we aim to achieve by the end of Year 2. (Taken from the Government national curriculum document)
White Rose MATHS ACTIVITIES
In Year 2, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme for our daily lessons. The White Rose website now has a dedicated section for Home Learning where you can access a daily maths lesson, linked to the learning we would be doing in school. Each lesson has a video for input to go through the learning, a worksheet to demonstrate understanding and an answer sheet to check over at the end. The resources are really clear and easy to use, should you wish to follow them.
Week 1 and Week 2 could be used over the Easter break, should you wish to!
Week 3 would link to the week starting Monday 20th April.
Easter holiday - English and Maths Problem Solving
Here are some fun problem-solving tasks that you might wish to attempt over the Easter break. They focus on solving problems and finding clues to discover the culprit who committed a crime! There are some tricky questions so children may need a bit of help: the answers are provided but no cheating!!
Here is a link to a wonderful, interactive website, based on the Great Fire of London. Make sure you have the volume turned on so that you can hear the story and instructions.
When you have finished, you might like to try one of these tasks.
Please find below some fun, family activities that you may wish to use over the coming weeks. They can be done easily on paper, if you do not have access to a printer.
Children helped each other read through their non-chronological reports and edit spelling and punctuation errors.
Apollo are Cosmic Collaborators!
Apollo class enjoyed a messy start to our new topic ‘Muck, Mess & Mixtures’.
We created splatter pictures, bubble paint pictures, shaving foam puffy paint, firework art & ice cube painting. We even made our own potions. Finally, we completed some mini science experiments - making the felt tip man move and the paper clip float.
Children had a fantastic time on our school trip. They enjoyed climbing to the top of castle to walk around it’s walls and spot the different parts they had learnt about. They also got to see the museum and objects that people in the past used in everyday life.
Apollo’s behaviour was exceptional and they all earned 4 class dojo points.
For those of you who could not make 'Meet the teacher' I have uploaded the Powerpoint so that you can see all the information that was said.
Hi all, as I am sure you are all now aware we are having a Camulos Carnival in year 1! This will be taking place on Thursday 23rd May 2019 at 2pm. A letter with more information will be going out next week. We hope you are all able to make it! Many thanks, Year 1.
From all of us in Apollo - we hope you all have a lovely Easter break and have lots of fun!
The spellings that were sent out last week will be tested first week back after the break. This is why no new spellings were sent out.
Have a lovely break!
