Week Commencing 13.07.2020
This is the final week of home learning before the start of the summer holidays. Thank you for your continued support in your child's learning during this time. Have a wonderful summer break when it arrives.
Hello, Vulcan!! Thomas has done a fantastic thing this week and would love to share it with you all. I've put some photos below. Well done, Thomas!
Thomas walked down to the bottom of the garden, to his swing, he looked down and thought he spotted a leaf blowing in the breeze. He realised it wasn’t windy so he took a closer look and discovered a VERY small Hedgehog. He couldn’t believe his eyes, it was very small and wiggling. Quickly he grabbed his dog, named Pringles and took him inside, then told his Mummy and Daddy what he had found.
We all went running down the garden to have a look and sure enough it was a tiny Hoglet, so small that it’s eyes weren’t open. Thomas quickly got a shoe box and some hay and we carefully put the Hoglet into a box and moved it to a cool, safe place.
His Mum then called the RSPCA while Thomas stayed quietly guarding the box. It was then decided that the Hoglets best chance was to take it to a Hedgehog rescue centre straight away and the lady there was going to look after it. She told us that the Hoglet may have wondered off from the nest as it’s mother sadly hadn’t returned. She said that she would have to feed the Hoglet every two hours to help it gain its strength and warned us that we might find more as a Hedgehog can have up to 7 babies.
So Thomas then began to search around the area he had found the Hoglet. Sure enough the next day, he found another little Hoglet. We took it to the lady at the Rescue Centre and she said she would put it with it’s Brother.
She told Thomas he had done the right thing and well done. She has also invited us to go back and visit once we are all allowed.
Lots of beach-related activities for you this week!
Here is a photo from my own beach walk today!

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:
Below is the link that will take you to the Collins Big Cat books for children to access and read online.
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.
Here are some fun, family activities that you may wish to try over the coming weeks. Many can be done using paper and pencils and don't require printing, unless you wish to.
Please find below the PowerPoint that was shared at our recent 'Meet the Teacher' session.
